If the fuel injectors are dry then the 1998 Honda Civic may have a gas leak. The car should be inspected, even a pin hole leak can lead to a fatal accident.
Bad catalytic convertor. Egg smell is a dead giveaway.
i had a fuel leak
exhaust leak or a possible fuel line leak
Emissions and bad drivers
99 isuzu trooper smell gasoline in the engine compartment
The catalytic converted has melted, buy a new one.
Well, the smell could be from a spillage, which when your moving goes to the main petrol tank. another explanation is your mum.
A miss, black smoke and a strong gas smell. Also, bad acceleration, rough idling, and stalling.
probably the catalytic converter- or you child is smoking in the car
You might smell gas on a 1997 Ford Escort after you fill it because you have overfilled the tank and some has spilled out onto the side of the car. You might also smell it because of leaking injectors.
The most likely problem comes from the fuel injector seals or the injectors.
Probably because the choke is still open and the extra gas is not being burned/used causing the smell
on the low pressure side of the fuel injection there is a rubber hose with a cloth cover that runs between the injectors, this is where you are most likely getting the leak and smell of diesel.
check the seals at the injectors sometimes they leak for starters
you should have fuel injection if this is the case either the injectors are bad or the circuit that controls the injectors are faulty
Check plugs and wires/fuel injectors/fuel filter
Your 1996 Escort might smell like gas when it is not running because of a damaged gas tank or damaged fuel lines. Leaking injectors or a leaking tank can also cause that smell.
Sounds like the injectors are failing by staying open too long. Probably time for new injectors. Impossible to test without an inline injector tester. Hope this helps.
The heat and smell. In the US the smell was of concrete and fossil fuels (traffic); in Vietnam it was the smell of vegetation mixed with swampy rivers, water buffaloes, and the humidity.
A gas leak somewhere. Check the injectors and make sure the cap is on tight.
too much fuel (unburned) getting into the exhaust. could be your oxygen sensor or catalyst converter. less likely, a leaking fuel injector
What color is the smoke? Black - running rich. Bluish - buring oil. White - burning coolant. When you smell the gas, it is inside or outside the minivan? Back of the car or near the front?
I had the gas smell problem with my 1998 Honda Accord. The smell only was a problem when the engine was running, especially idling. In my case, there was nothing wrong with the fuel line, tank or carbon canister. It turned out to be a loose spark plug. In addition to the other fuel related areas, I highly recommend checking each plug and tightening if necessary. G
Most likely you have a gas leak some where depends where u smell it if you smeel it near the gas cap it is prolly leaking out of you hose under the car and if you smell it on the engine the you car is flooding the engine with gas When I had a gas smell when driving it was a bad fuel injector. Cost over $150 to replace. Luckily it was only 1 and not all of them. April ==I agree with April== I had the same problem with my '96. I replaced the O rings on two leaking injectors. It helped but didn't solve the problem. I replaced the leaky injectors (one at a time due to financial restraints) which DID solve the problem. The injectors cost about $76 each at Auto Zone. My mechanic replaced them for a case of beer each. Ya gotta love a local, talented mechanic! Did I mention that my mechanic is female? FriPilot
Any car can start on fire any time. If you tend to smell gas when your around your car it would be in your best interest to have it inspected by a mechanic as soon as possible.
