The smell of gasoline is in the car especially strong after first starting up and throughout the course of driving, what is the problem

I had the PO171 code which my friend cleared after I replaced the air filter and connected the tube that goes to the filter (it was not connected when cel came on). I drove the car for 3 days until the check engine light appeared again. The mechanic recommended replacing the maf sensor or cleaning it. I noticed that the 2 screws on the electrical connector needed some special tool. Please help me on how to remove the screws (what tool/s needed) and how to replace the maf sensor and how to properly clean it (what solution shall I use for cleaning). Thanks in advance. Happy holidays!

how much does it cost to replace wheel bearing for the front of my car? parts and labor.

I need help guys. I have a 1998 Maxima with a major starting problem. My car has been hard to start for a while, but sometime I get black smoke when this hard starting occurs. I replaced my starter thinking that was the problem, but it made the situation worse. It did not want to start at all yesterday and then when it finally did start a huge puff of black smoke came out of the exhaust. It continued to start on the second try, but earlier this afternoon it wouldn’t crank at all. It turns over like it wants to start, but it doesn’t catch. I think too much fuel is getting in the cylinders and it is flooding the car. What could be the problem? Could it be bad fuel pump, injectors, coils? Could it be a bad head gasket? Oil light use to flicker at startup, but not sure if that would be related to this problem. It seems as though the car has no power now. The battery is dying.

no problems now and I am very good with oil changes etc. Thanks

it only came on when the car first started now it stays on longer and i same to have squeeking in the altanator, but i am now experience problems with the transmition so i am trying to figure out what the AT is all about.

Back in the summer the A/C was making a horrible noise and then all of a sudden stopped. So, now when you turn on the heat or A/C nothing blows out. After a while it gets warm, but the blower will not blow anything out no matter what speed it is on! I am assuming that I need a new blower motor??

Need to find power steering fill cap location under hood.

Someone please help me, First my gauges got really dim in the car, my heater stopped working, my wipers were going crazy in the off position, lights where going from dim to bright, would go fine in reverse put would hardly go at all in drive, and not it will not start at all.

Can u get to the oil pump from the bottom or do you have to take the engine out?

I have 65k miles on my car. Whenever i drive on the highway
and the engine is still cold, it takes about 4-5 miles or
20 min of driving for the car to shift into overdrive.
When the car was new the car shift into overdrive right away,
but it the last 2 yrs, it takes longer to shift into OD.
I read online that it could be some type of solenoid.
Is this a transmission problem or just replace the solenoid?

I went to a mechanic and the code reader says PO 171 on the check engine light. It says something like "bank 1 too lean"(too much oxygen on the exhaust). Is there anything I can do right now to fix the problem? Please help. Thanks.

I have around 124K miles on the car and I am planning a long trip.
