Did you fill up and not have the cap tight? Try a new cap if that doesn't do it ,,,You most likely have one of the vapor hoses either broken or disconected at the tank fill tube or pump..they take the vapors back to the engine to be used..if this is so do not hesitate get it checked out..could spark ...

Evap emmission,control sys leak

Do not top off your gas tank. The gas is going into carbon canister which is only for fuel vapors to go into (carbon canister opening near the top of fuel neck near the gas cap). Your flooding the fuel vapor canister with liquid fuel; of course you are going to get a sensor message... 'Evap emmission,control sys leak

P0443 The fuel vapor canister reduces that gas smell on hot days outside/inside of car. The fuel vapor canister fillers bad smells from gas tank on hot days when the gas expands and burps fumes through carbon canister filter. From the canister (gas vapor fumes) goes back into the engine to be burned's a closed loop for vapors to be recycled though engine. Don't worry, once the carbon canister dries out and no longer flooded with raw fuel the code should go away...just don't let the top off fuel tank back flow into the 'Evap emission control' carbon filter near the top and close to the gas cap...:)

Why would my 1995 toyota corolla be smelling like gas very strongly?

I would be considering if the fuel cap is pressurised, if it is then the charkhole canister breather my be blocked . but if it doent start straight away then u must be loosing pressure in the fuel system,does it make a difference how much fuel is in the tank ?it can be the fuel over flow pipe if you fill the tank right up and park it the fuel can swell, it exspands. I hope this is of some help. if not I would like to know were you park it ,how much fuel is in it , is the swell strong inside the car or under the bonnet , in the garage

My taurus wont fire changed the distrbutor and coil and coil pick up but will only crank all day

I've been there, done that and have the T-Shirt for it.
It can basically be only one of several things.

If you are smelling any gasoline when you crank, then you don't have ignition but you have fuel. Kind of obvious, I know, but I have to try to cover all of the bases.

If you have ignition but no fuel, you won't smell any gas but you can check for spark by taking a spark plug wire off, leaning it on the engine metal and seeing if it sparks. If it sparks, You got ignition.

On a Taurus, one can insert the plug into the coil in such manner that one of the electrical contact prongs to the primary side (12 Volt) can be bent out of the way so that there is no primary voltage going to it. That will get you the cranks all year award.

I purchased a 1990 Lincoln Continental (built on an extended Taurus-Sable platform years ago from someone who could not get it started for a year. After working on it for a couple of days I went down with a good flashlight and discovered one of the primary contact was bent to one side. Straightened it out, plugged it in and the car started as though nothing was ever wrong.

It could be the timing chain has skipped or broken or the Distributor drive gear is out of sync.

Here is the last one. In a Ford there is an automatic fuel shut off in the trunk on the driver's side wall. It is tripped by the vibration of an accident and sometimes it likes to trip on it's own. It is behind the grey trunk covering. It has a reset button. PUSH IT.

I've heard stories of people on the verge of tears selling their beloved but very dead Taurus to some guy, who opens the trunk, pushes the button and then drives it away.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,

Prior to starting car, I did not hear the fuel pump come on. The car turned over for a couple of seconds then started. The needle on the fuel guage was pegged out pass full. This went on for 2 days. On...

probably just a dead fuel pump, but there was a campaign on this car several years ago the wiring harness were it goes threw the floor of the trunk were building to much Resistance and it was melting the plug and then the fuel pump would lose it power supply and the fuel tank sending unit would make the gauge go to the full side and stay there. hope this helps

Car will turn over good, but not start. car is getting fuel.

could be a clogged fuel filter, a clogged fuel sock (inside tank) or bad injectors. Also, try taking the gas cap off and see if it starts. if that's it, you need to replace the cap.
