Gas smell I have a 2000 pontiac grand am gt. Recently i got into my car after i had let it sit to warm up and when i got in it, it smelled really bad like gas. But as i start to drive down the road the smell will go away. But when i park my car and get out it smells like gas. I have had my gas lines and gas tank all underneath looked at and its not leaking no wheres. Any suggestions and what it might be? Also my car has been using more gas than it normally does,.

I just tried starting my 1986 Porsche 944 its been sitting in storeage for 3 years and havent started it since, and now i bled the gas line to get rid of old gas and drained the tank and put more gas in and changed the oil but the car wont turn over without starter fluid, i lready know that the fuel pump is working since i bled the lines out but i cant figure this one out, any ideas?


You may not have gas in the fuel rail. when you run the system dry or let it sit a long time you could get that area empty. Try just trying to start car very fast without trying to start it. What you are doing is pushing the gas into the fuel everyti ... 1986 Porsche 944

I have a 99 Tahoe that's not getting gas. Spark is good. I replaced the fuel pump and the fuel filter and there's good fuel pressure up at the lines in the intake. The truck was sitting for a while and it had bad gas in it. Could it be plugged injectors or is there something else I can look for?

I have a 99 gmc jimmy. to get it started I have to pour gas into the throttle body, then it will fire. sometimes I have to repeat the process until the fuel works its way back through the line. so fuel pump isn't bad since it still pumps the fuel through. But after sitting for a little while it will lose prime again and I have to pour more gas into the throttle body and it will start again. what could it be?

I was told I needed to replace my intake gasket over the summer but i just didnt have the money to fix it. Then my tire went flat and had to get a new. And until I could get enough money up it snowed so it was sitting in the snow and all this bad weather for about 3 weeks. I drove it when all the weather cleared now I can hear this really load noise it sound like a chain fixing to brake or htting against something. When you slow down it will try to cutt off. And when you press the gas that niose

My 1996 mitsubishi galant may have a bad ground. the battery is constently dead, even with a new battery, if it sits the battery will be dead in 5 hours. i get a jump and it starts right up, but if i fail to give it gas it completely dies. turn signals make the RPM meter twitch along with them and braking and such is also causes the car to die. to brake i have to put it in nuetral and give it gas while im stopped. i also noticed for the first time today that I may be missing a gear. i put it in

My Trailblazer started idling and running rough intermittently. We thought bad gas. We were on a trip and used a gas teatment to get rid of water. Did not help. Delaer thought the same but now says water got in the cylinder and must be sealed and coil replaced. Does this make sense?


I'm guessing you have the 6 cylinder engine and not the 8? I don't buy what the dealer told you. If you're really worried about a little water in the fuel system, run a bottle of Seafoam through the brake booster/ gas tank, that will solve any wate ... 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer

When should spark plugs be changed on 2005 pontiac grand prix? I'm getting bad gas mileage and when I start it up after sitting for awhile it dies if I don't hold down the gas pedal.

I had an EGR valve sticking and replaced it after it read up on a computer reading! the truck runs fine but it had sat for 2 1/2 years before i bought it. has dual tanks and the front tank has gas in it from sitting the whole time. rear tank is the one i use. But.... when i drive it shakes real bad, like its missing with overdrive off, and also when i take off from a light. it also makes the sound from the motor that it's not getting gas and wants to die when i take off. check engine light


The tank you are using, is the gas new or old? I didn't know if the one your using is that old too. If it is, that gas is bad. I would say your injectors and fuel filter is clogged. ... Ford F-150

My 2004 Saturn Vue 6 cyl will at times not start. It is not getting gas, first thought was the fuel pump, however after its sits for a few hours it will start. I know its a fuel problem and changed the relay for the pump. This vehicle has two pumps in a saddle tank. Could it be just a filter issue?? and or why will it start sometimes, and then not start at all, wait a few hours and then it starts. I have always assumed that if a pump goes bad its gone. Any help?


I was wondering how you know it is the fuel problem?If it is a fuel problem,then I would say the injectors are not pulsing at times,the crankshaft sensor,or cam sensor would be my first guess,most likely the crankshaft sensor,it is located where ther ... 2004 Saturn VUE

I have an 99 Intrigue Oldsmobile. It's taken a few times turning the key to get the car started. This happened 3-4 times over the past week. I thought maybe bad gas, but put a fresh tank in and it still happened. Then yesterday, I was doing some in the city driving and my temp gauge almost got to the the "red" area. Once I got back on the Highway, the temp went back to normal. Today, I was driving 55 and all of a sudden my tach went to 0, my water light came on and my car shut off. I coa

I have a 1991 ford f250 with the 5.0 motor. the truck has been sitting foraround 5 years. both fuel pumps were bad . I have replaced both of them along with the new fuel filter and sending units. The truck runs fine when running off the front tank however it will not run from the back tank. I can hear the pump kicking on but the truck seams like it is still not getting gas from the back tank. Is there something else that I need to look at on this old truck.
