Why is a very strong gas smell coming from my tailpipe?


White smoke is water vapor and in this cold climate it is normal. Strong gas smell is not normal although you may smell some while engine is warming up. Bad cat converter can produce smells, but usually more like rotten eggs. If engine is running rough and seems rich, check coolant temp sensor. Bad converter can cause stalling too. Otherwise, idle speed is controlled by idle air contol motor which can get dirty and stick. Any codes set?

Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm. Excess fuel will usually effect engine performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a fuel odor.

How did the fuel get into the cylinder in the first place? Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that is out of adjustment, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a faulty engine computer or computer sensor. If black smoke is present, check the engine oil as in the white smoke example to make sure excess fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil. Call your mechanic and advise him of what you have found.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Smoking out of tailpipe and smells like gas and doesnt seem to have enough power


It could be either the engine, catylitic convertor if the smoke is black. If the smoke coming out is white it could be engine coolant problem. If it is not getting enough power it could be the carburator not getting enough gas.

Black smoke comes from exhuast when engine gets hot


black smoke is raw gas burning. a rich condition could be the cause---a bad oxygen sensor, a bad map sensor, a bad fuel pressure regulator, a plugged up air filter, or bad injector. if it was a oil problem then you can smell it. when after running til hot. shut off engine and rub finger around inside of tailpipe to tell! have a good one!!

1993 lumina euro is blowing black out of tailpipe smells gas


Black smoke is unburned gas. If the car is running fine besides the black smoke, it's most likely the Coolant Temperature Sensor. The part is roughly $20 and an easy fix.

PS- I'm guessing your check engine light is on...

Smelling gas in the tail pipe


your catalytic converter is likely not working properly. That explains the raw smell and the black smoke.

Either that or you are leaking gasoline onto the exhaust from the car.
