Fuel smell outside the car not inside????

So I searched and found that most of the people with the fuel leak issue have the smell on the inside of the car and find a fuel puddle under the rear seats. thats not the case with my car. I've noticed for the past 2 weeks my car a really strong fuel smell outside the car right in the engine bay. I've popped the hood open but never found anything and can't really pinpoint where the smell is but it's definetely coming from under the hood. Anyone have any insight????

If it is an injector or part of the fuel rail, then you're covered under the emissions warranty if you're no longer under warranty.

Specified major emission control components are covered for the first 8 years or 80,000 miles of vehicle use. With a California vehicle, you may be entitled to additional warranty coverage.

Parts covered:

Fuel Metering System

electronic control module (unit) or EFI air flow meter, computer
command module or mixture control unit, deceleration controls,
electronic choke, fuel injectors, fuel injection units and fuel
altitude compensator sensor, bars or rails for EFI or TBI systems,
mixture settings on sealed fuel mixture control solenoid,
diaphragm or other systems, fuel metering components that achieve closed/other feedback control sensors/loop operation switches and valves.

Plus the Fuel Injection System and fuel distributor.

mine does this too. but only sometimes. and only does this in the morning first startup sitting in garage or drive way. real inconsistent. smell goes away after driving down the road and then never happens rest of day.

try and pull the codes off of your car using an odb reader. even if you dont have a check engine light, you probably have a pending code stored.

i had the exact same issue a while back and had several cannister vent shut valves and the evaporator purge valve replaced. the cannister valves got rid of the smell of gas underneath my car and the purge valve got rid of the smell of gas within the engine bay.

the smell of gas within the engine bay was only recognizable during cold starts.

a few months after replacing the purge valve, the gas smell was back within the engine bay. in the end, the dealer updated my ECU and things have been good since.

the code that kept coming up was p0456.


hope this helps,


Oscar
