For the last 4 to 6 years we have been experiencing a gas smell in the car while driving. Although we pass NYS inspection each year we noticed it had been getting worse recently. In the middle of December it got so bad we just couldn't take it any more; and since the inspection was due at the end of December we had to get it fixed, just in case.
It was repaired by a local auto mechanic who is backed by NAPA. He found a leak and sealed it in mid December charging us $219. We have been having very cold weather lately, and we have been noticing the gas smell was coming back.
I took it to the repair shop where they fixed the leak almost 2 to 3 weeks ago and they said there was no leak, but they also smelled gas. I was told that it was vapor exhaust.
They informed me that they found in the internet that there was a recall on gas tanks for my model car. I searched on the internet, but I didn't find any recalls.
The repairman said that he would check if there was a vapor leak if, in the event I the recall did not fix the problem, for $65.
First of all I like to know if there is such a recall. Then I need to know if this is a reasonable occurance. I don't want to start any problems with the repair shop, since the were very courteous and treated me decently but I want to double check before I proceed.
first time this has happened will crank over but won't start 16,000 miles certified car 5 year bumper to bumper warranty
