Buick Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. where do you think the gas odor is coming from?
if you open the hood, can you see any evidence of a gas leak?
is the spot in the driveway? can you smell the spot?
ok, but if its gas and its leaking from the engine compartment, its losing pressure and therefore takes a couple of times to crank it to start until the right fuel pressure is attained. having said that, i would recommend not driving the vehicle intil it is fixed, because it can start an engine fire.
its very important to find out where the smell is coming from by visually inspecting it while turning the key to the on position a few times
just what you told me. you smell fuel and its hard to start sometimes.
if there wasnt a gas smell near the engine i would say have the fuel pressure tested. until that is done, theres nothing else to do. dont let the mechanic start throwing parts at you vehicle. tell him to find out the root cause.
please leave a 5 star rating after you accept the answer, if you were satisfied with my assistance. thanks and good luck to you.
checking in to see how its going
