Is the fuel smell coming from the exahst or the engine compartment? Are there any trouble codes?

Does the oil smell like fuel?

Find that leak first.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no the oil does not smell like fuel. it started just out of the blu. the pickup has roughly about 120,000 miles, we had not had any problems with the engine until now. if we were to change the main wiring harness would that help any

Find the fuel leak.

Run a compression check Wet and Dry.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
how can a fuel leak cause the engine to miss or have a dead spot when you are running at lower speeds and you can not really feel it at higher speeds.
Expert:  Steve McCann replied 8 years ago.
sounds like an ignition problem to me. But my logic goes as follows.

If the truck burns up from the gas leak, you wont have to find the miss anymore, and that just aint no fun.

Find the fuel leak
