Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!

Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

is the smell from the engine compartment or is it at the filler area where you pump gas?

please let me know

We smell it in the cabin. Not in engine compartment. After stopping and turning off engine. Sometimes when w are at idle It is not a constant thing.

How sad. You typing a very few words was 28.00! Hardly got that money's worth. And when it said on the website call INSTEAD you magnanimously offer to have us pay MORE?!?! Sad.
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 6 months ago.

you have requested a phone call so due to site rules that is the way the site will allow for phone contact.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No thanks. This is not what it was advertised to be. We figure it's 28 a minute to not get our answer. Thanks anyway
