Car smells like gas after I turn car off

Asked by Jan 20, 2015 at 04:17 PM about the Chrysler Sebring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

35

DO NOT RESTART. You need to list engine and year. For example the 96 - 2000 (2.5 v6) had a recall, which the symptoms you describe would match, that was caused by the fuel injector rail leaking. The recall kit (in my experience) rusts away every 4 to 5 years. Chrysler supplied the first two kits to me for free (pre bankruptcy) the third kit was about $8 at the local Mopar dealership. The kit contains 12 O rings and 6 spring steel injector retaining clips and is relatively easy to install. The smell of gas means your car is leaking and could be anything from a damaged filler tube to the injectors. Edit: Better language and to note that I have the 98 JXI 2.5 and have done all the maintenance (minus accident related body work) on my car.
