I have a 1986 ford ranger [2.9] and I am getting a strong gas smell

Asked by Mar 08, 2014 at 08:01 AM about the 1986 Ford Ranger XLT Standard Cab 4WD LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Could this be the fuel filter because it is coming right at the driver side door.

this is a problem- a fire hazard and an environmental hazard- (you're breathin' it)- somehow, your closed fuel system has developed a leak- look for drips- last time this happened to me, it turned out to be injector seals on my 1981 Fiat Spider

Stop driving until you can figure this one out. The Nylon fuel lines, fuel filter and sometimes a fuel pump are on the frame rail under your seat (as you described it). If you aren't mechanically inclined, have it towed to a shop. Don't drive it.
