    So I searched today and didn't find this one. I had previous posts with the gas smell/crap tubing/bad solenoid, etc. Anyway, I filled up yesterday after driving on 10buck fill-ups for the longest time since I fixed my odometer gear to check the mileage... No more gas smell like before, go figure.

    I still plan on replacing the solenoid since you can blow straight through whether or not it's energized, I'm sure its causing a vacuum leak. I may just block off the PCV line and modify my charcoal canister since I imagine it's jackked up and causing the problem. I just haven't had the time, I'm not super concerned about it today, I got to finish another project before I can mess with this more.

    Anyway, any ideas on the gas smell going away??!?!?!:confused:

    not really. Had the smell when left work at the stop sign, filled up, no more smell. maybe it was PFM and it's all fixed now, but I doubt it LOL!

    Oh haha.

    I haven't seen your other thread, but I think it would be a good idea to replace everything anyways. Its a common problem and will likely come back :p
