SOURCE: 2007 Town & Country smelling gas inside the van

if its that bad don't run it, sounds like bad leak, best to have someone chk. it out. has it been doing this ever sence you bought it? if it has, call the place you bought it at and have them send someone over to look at it., BUT BY NO MEANS DRIVE IT TO THEM. its a potential fire hazard. I know you will smell a hint of gas when you first fill it up, but will usely go's away in short amount of time. fires will start from the fumes and not the liquid. If its that bad you can smell it on your cloths, Its bad.If this is scaring you I'am sorry this just sounds like something that can't be icnored. GET IT CHK.

Have the purge system tested, and the regulator diaphragm looked at. also the lines, especially the quick disconnect lines up near the engine. You smell gas, but as the engine heats up, the gasoline evaporates and you don't see where it is coming from. This is dangerous in any case, not to mention smelly. The regulator is located in back of the engine (on top) near the throttle body. (just underneath it).
Start the car and let it run for a couple of minutes. Stop the car, and using a flashlight and a good retractable mechanic's mirror, take a look for wetness.
if the regulator (a small, flat inch and a half disk attached to the fuel line) is wet. have it replaced right away. The purge system canister can usually be tested by a good mechanic with the right equipment. You and I usually cannot do this ourselves.

SOURCE: leaking coolant after radiator replacement

If you are talking about the reservoir that hose is the overflow hose.
Its possible the shop did not release all of the air pockets from the system and some coolant came out with the air bubbles.
The tank should be about half full hot and cold.

Strong raw fuell smell inside the car intermitantly


Usually, what you smell inside the car is coming thru the vent from the engine compartment.
So it could be a leak around the engine or the vapor canister. Its possible the canister gets overloaded from time to time when the computer vents the gas tank to the canister. A very small leak can be a very strong smell inside the car.

2011 town chrysler gas smell


I would check the gas cap to make sure the gasket is seating correctly on the filler neck. Also check, if you can, the filler neck from the gas cap down to the tank. If it is damaged, it could seep gas fumes. If you see no other signs of an obvious leak on the garage floor, it's likely a gasket issue in the fuel fill side of the system. It does not take much fumes to smell it strongly.

Acts like its running out of gas, raw gas smell


this suggests you have a fuel leak in the engine compartment. Possibly a leaking fuel manifold (injection rail), or the rubber line from the fuel tank is leaking where it attaches to the manifold. The fuel line to the cold start injector should also be checked. Rubber hoses on older cars become brittle and as they contract from very cold weather will leak. Turn the key to on for 1 minute but do not start the car. Then check under the hood for a raw fuel wet spot where the leak is.
