Smelling Gas When You’re Not at the Pump?

That’s a sign your fuel injectors could need attention.

The weekend’s almost here and you’re looking forward to Saturday’s performance in Madison of the Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society. But before you and kick back and relax, you’re going to have to do something about your car or truck because you’ve been smelling gas all week.

That’s a classic sign that you might have a fuel injector that’s leaking or stuck in the open position. A fuel injector is the doodad that delivers gas to the engine to be mixed with oxygen so your vehicle can run. They also, according to, do it in a way that allows the engine to efficiently use the air-fuel mixture to enhance gas mileage and save you money in the long run. Multiple things can go wrong with a fuel injector. As we said above, leaking and sticking in the open position are two possible problems. Other common problems include clogged or dirty injectors and sticking in the closed position. Possible symptoms include a smell of gas, an engine that misfires and/or has inconsistent power, or poor gas mileage.

If you suspect something might be wrong with your fuel injectors – or any other part of your engine – bring your vehicle to Terry’s Car Care where our experienced, certified technicians can take a look, diagnose the problem and get you all fixed up in time for a relaxing weekend.
