Q: smell gas inside car when idle or at start-up. on 2004 Nissan Maxima

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
If my car is in idle, especially when running heat or even dehumidifier, the smell of gas fills the inside of the car. This is even MORE true when I start my car in the morning. Even if it's been outside warming up for 5-10 mins, once I enter the car, I smell the strong gasoline odor immediately. What is the problem & how much "should" it cost...approximately?

wow, stop driving this until you resolve this issue. you do not want to be on the 5 o clock news showing your car on fire somewhere. go to a shop and let them find out where the leak is located and give you a bid.

So what about if I took the car to 2 different mechanics and they couldnt find it, now what do I do?
Didn't find what you were looking for?
