Most likely causes are bad engine coolant temp sensor OR leaking fuel injectors. Bad engine coolant temp sensor will give computer false reading and computer provides wrong air fuel mixture. Leaking fuel injectors will load the engine with raw gas--just like flooding it. Try pushing the gas pedal to the floor and holding it there when cranking when hot. That forces the computer into "clear flood" mode and it shuts off the injectors. If it starts up with pedal down, that would be a sign of leaking injectors.

Sounds like you are having a fuel problem with the fuel filter. If you have not had your car serviced in quite awhile i would do so. At least change the fuel filter and check the air filter as well. Hope thias will help you.

I think this is a classic example of a faulty air flow meter . These can be rather expensive , so take your car to your garage and have the system scanned - just to be on the safe side .

You could try disconnecting the air flow meter electrical plug and then start your engine , this should improve your symptoms but not completely . Nevertheless this could help you confirm if the air flow meter is faulty or not .

I hope this helps

I smell gas in the cabin of my 2008 chevy impala, it has 70,000 miles ... the smell wont go away any answers??


smell gas in the cabin Kenny, Fuel line is probably leaking, would have checked immediately by a qualified tech. This could be extremely dangerous if fuel is spraying/leaking on hot surface such as exhaust.

Why car wont crank, but can smell gas


IT IS LOOKS LIKE A FUEL PRESSURE LEAKING INSIDE THE ENGINE OR DEFECTIVE FUEL INJECTOR LEAKING . TRY DISCONNECTING THE FUEL PUMP RELAY. AND CRANK THE ENGINE IF ALWAYS CRANK WITH OUT OF FUEL (CRANK WITHOUT START) YOU HAVE FUEL LEAK INSIDE THE ENGINE
REMOVE THE INJECTORS RAIL UP EVERYTHING CONNECTED,PUT BACK THE FUEL PUMP RELAY TURN THE SWITCH ON AND FIND WICH ONE IS LEAKING. (GASOLINE IS FLAMMABLE TAKE CARE)

2004 subaru outback, heating system acting up


Thermostat Stuck on warm up & or you have
a possible head gasket failure & I would suspect
a loss of coolant.

If that is the case, you have a ruined exhaust converter &
O2 sensors as well & a $5,000 plus repair bill coming

Gas fumes inside and out side the car when it is hot outside


Try having the area that the hose was disconnected from steamed cleaned, or go to a car wash wash and spray the area. It might help, that is if you already haven't done so.
