Customer Question

My 2004 Chevrolet Suburban starts runs great, no lights or messages on dash, no decrease in gas mileage and can detect no leaks. But when shut it off you start smelling strong smell of gasoline. It really get strong in garage. The smell is stronger at the rear of the vehicle. What could cause this?

Sorry Leroy, the reply was delayed. This suggests there is an EVAP system leak, this is the system that captures the fumes from the tank. Usually we find the charcoal canister leaking or the vent valve in the back above the rear axle is leaking. I suspect that we need to replace the valve and clean out the canister with compressed air.
