good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist
when you have the ac on, its opens up a vent from the outside. you have an external fuel leak that needs to be checked before it causes a problem.
the codes have nothing to do with the smell. the codes indicate a rich running issue.

I have already followed all of the fuel lines and I can't find a leak any other possibility where it might be?
research on the internet said it could be the evap emissions system. Is that possible and if so how do I know for sure?
Ford Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago
the cannister for the evap is at the back of the van. look closely at the injectors to be sure they are not seeping any fuel externally. the rear ones will be hard to see.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
