Because gasoline is a highly voitile substance, even tiny amounts will create a strong odor. If your car has fuel injection, then the fuel is pumped into the fuel rail at high pressure. A tiny leak can create the odor you are noticing. The best way to find it, I think, is to open the hood while the engine is running, and check around the fuel injector components for any sign of a leak. Then, if you have not found it yet, shut the engine off, and stand in front of the car and listen for any noise which might be associated with a fuel leak. Look carefully around the injectors, and the fuel rail. Watch especially for any area which looks unusually clean, as gasoline will disolve most grease and oil.
in the engine compartment
Located in the front of the engine compartment between the radiator and the engine.
There is a fuel leak in the engine compartment. Have a mechanic look at the engine.
On a 1998 Lincoln Continental : The thread on cap on your engine coolant reservoir is the pressure cap / radiator cap . The engine coolant reservoir is in your engine compartment , towards the passenger side of the engine compartment
On a 2000 Lincoln Continental : The engine coolant reservoir is in the engine compartment . It is on the PASSENGER SIDE OF THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT and has a thread on cap on the top of the tank ( which is the pressure cap / radiator cap )
On a 2001 Mercury Sable : The thread on cap on the engine coolant reservoir ( located in your engine compartment , on the passenger side of the engine compartment ) is the pressure cap / radiator cap
The AC low pressure valve on a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo is located in the back of the engine compartment. The valve is on the larger of the two hoses that run from the evaporator to the compressor.
The thread on cap on your engine coolant reservoir is the pressure cap / radiator cap on your 1997 Ford Crown Victoria The engine coolant reservoir is the white plastic tank located on the passenger side of the engine compartment near the firewall that divides the engine compartment from the passenger compartment
The firewall is between the engine compartment and the passenger compartment.
if the smell is coming from the engine compartment it could be the batteries going bad.
The engine compartment would be the area under the hood that the engine sits in.
the oil pressure switch is located in the rear of the engine compartment on the drivers side under the valve cover
On a 2002 Mercury Sable : The engine coolant reservoir is at the front of the engine compartment , on the passenger side of the engine compartment ( the engine coolant reservoir has a thread on cap on it , that is your pressure cap / radiator cap )
In the back of the engine compartment, behind the engine, next to the fire wall.
Under the hood where the engine is mounted is the engine compartment.
The engine control computer is on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Its got a black cover covering the wires that are coming out of it
The low pressure AC port can be found on the passenger side engine compartment. The port is located near the oil cap for the engine.
The firewall is the steel bulkhead that separates the engine compartment from the driver compartment.The firewall is the steel bulkhead that separates the engine compartment from the driver compartment.
The low pressure Freon port on a 2005 Subaru Outback is located on the center of the engine compartment, in front of the engine block. It has a yellow cap.
The low pressure port should be on the passenger side of the engine compartment. It is at the back right against the firewall.
The low pressure port for the 2003 sable is on the passenger side of the engine compartment. It is right at the firewall made into a hose.
looking from front bumper into engine compartment it is passenger side of engine,kinda below fuse/battery compartment next to oil filter.Black looking cylinder with 2 hoses coming out.
Where is the clicking coming from? Within the engine compartment or inside the car?
found out it was the oil pressure switch dripping down on to exhaust pipe collecting on heat shield, thanx anyway
