2003 Nissan Xterra Q&A
2003 Nissan Xterra Question: gas smell in Xterra
I have a gas smell inside and outside the car when driving. It seems to be coming from engine are - can find no leaks, split hoses, etc. Was told it could be fuel injector - is it dangerous to drive? Also told it could be catalytic converter. Can not find a diagram of where fuel injectors are located but after going over the engine a couple of times, do not see any evidence of gas leaking. - Visitor
This could be dangerous. Tow to qualified shop for inspection. - raiderron
after 15 minutes of driving engin rpm NEEDLE goes up and down really fast engine startes missing and feels like timming is retarded so much that the catylitic converters turn red hot engine stalls ...
