My car will turn over till the battery dies but will not start. when it is trying to start air comes out the tail pipe but it smells like gas and i can take off the oil filler cap and it smells like gas. the sparkplugs are sparking.


Sounds like it is getting plenty of gas. First off check to see if the fuel regulator is bad either with a pressure gauge or pull the vacume line off and see if gas is seeping out, if it is theres your problem. Replace it. Pull out the plugs and let ... 1991 Geo Metro

2001 Monte Carlo has about 168,000 miles on it. Stopped for awhile left engine running and car smelled like gas (propane like smell). Recently "low Coolant" light has come on and then gone off when starting engine. Coolant is not low. Had been having issues with turn signals making a buzzing noise instead of blinking sometimes and thought the "low coolant" was maybe a fluke shorts in electrical system until the smell started during short periods of idling. Once while driving it felt like t

I got into my wifes chevy equinox this morning and I smelled natural gas. I had the window rolled down and the smell went away in a few seconds so i thought it might have been coming from somewhere outside. My wife took it to work later in the day and she called me when she left work saying that the car smelled really bad like natural gas when she got into it. She said she started smelling it a few days ago but it wasnt real bad until tonight so she didnt say anything.

Gas leak there is a leak on the passenger side about 1/2 way back under the car. It looks like its coming out of an object that looks like a tin can. Smells like gas. Anyone know what part this is called or what has caused this? Thanks for your help in advanced.


Hi, Your description matches the fuel filter, the only way to tell exactly what is wrong with it is to have it looked at. It could be a fitting to or from the filter or the filter could have a crack or there could be a split in the line. Best of Luck ... 1998 Audi A4

I just had my muffler/exhaust system changed at a garage. Before I brought the car in it was loud, but otherwise ran fine. Since I picked my car up I have noticed that now it struggles to reach cruising speed, sputters and feels like it is going to die. Sometimes it puffs out black smoke out of the pipe and now I am burning gas like crazy! when I step on the gas pedal the car struggles to go, before it was a nice smooth sound coming form my muffler, but now it sounds like some heavy muscle car


Sounds like they choked up your exhaust to much. What you needed was a quieter muffler. Buy having an exhuast that is to small on your car it will kill gas mileage and power. Most mitsbishis like a 2 1/2" exhaust, and if your have a turbo motor anyth ... 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Missing on passenger side of engine. Gas floods through and comes out exhaust. Replaced fuel pressure regulator.no change. Checked compression on all cylinders.120 - 190 psi. Dropped exhaust at engine,no change. While running,I disconnected both fuel injectors on passenger side and no change. Misses real bad. Has a whitish-blue vapor- like exhaust cloud. Smells of gas. No antifreeze smell. Gas was found in oil and it was changed.


That is too wide of a gap between cylinder compression readings. 190 psi is great and 120 is worn but workable. What were all of the numbers and which cylinders? ... 1990 Subaru Legacy

I have a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2, I have a code for lean mixture for a long time, I have replaced plugs, wires, it seems to help, but after awhile it comes back, sometimes when I give it gas it sounds like it bogging down, has not done this in a long time, just started again, smell fuel while idleing, idleing is rough now, when idleing and you give it gas, when you let off the gas it acts like it wants to die. Have no clue and running out of money. Please help if you can! Thanks

I am having a problem starting my car when it have sit for a long period of time like overnight. I would have to step slightly on the gas while turning the ignition key to get the engine to catch. When it does catch it will idle high and then idle properly below one. Then I can turn the engine off and then restart the car no problem. While the engine is idling high I would step on the gas and heavy smoke comes out the tail pipe with a gasy smell. Then when it idle properly that heavy smoke
