Strong gas odor outside of the car once it has been driven then parked. What could this be ? I have an extended warranty.


This is a very dangerous and serious concern. Do not store car in the garage. I would not drive this car. This car needs to be serviced by a qualified automotive service technician .

One of the most likely causes are squirrels or other types of animals chew into the plastic fuel lines. I have been told it is the ethanol in the gas? Others clam that it is the soy in the wires. Rodents have been reported eating the wires and fuel lines of cars parked at airports?

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

There is a srtrong odor of gasoline or maybe brake fluid whenever i start and run?


Sounds like two different problems.
I would have the engine computer checked for trouble codes and the body computer for ABS codes.
The brake problem could be the master cylinder, the gas smell could be a fuel leak or a problem with the venting system for the gas tank.

Gas odor when at stops sign or parking in garage


I recently had the same problem. It turned out that the fuel regulator on the engine at the left side just above the intake manifold had an intermitent leak. The gas leaking was not always visible so I had the regulator changed and that solved the problem.

If it won't fire off of starting fluid,time to check for spark.Remove a plug wire from a plug,and insert into the boot a medium sized phillips head screwdriver.Snap the screwdriver in,and lay it somewhere near a ground source,within a 1/4" from the ground source,but not touching it.Have someone crank the car over while you LOOK for a spark arcing from the screwdriver to the ground source.Do not hold the screwdriver as you may get a JOLT if you do.If no spark at all,try another plug wire.If no spark,you have an ignition problem.
