There is a strong gasoline odor inside the cab of my 2003 Hyundai Elantra. I can't find a visible leak, but it is sometimes hard to start and seems less fuel efficient.

You have a gas leak someplace and that is causing the hard starting, the odor, and the bad mileage

If your getting fuel which it sounds as though you are, check to see if your getting spark to the plugs. Sounds like an ignition system issue. Not sure about specifics on Hyundai but could be distributor cap, rotor, distributor, crank or cam shaft sensors.

If I were you ,I would remove the plentum and make sure the injectors are not leaking onto the intake manifold and creating a pocket of fuel,witch could cause a engine fire while driving.

My 2000 hyandai elantra started slowing down by itself and filled with gas fumes inside. We changed the fuel filter and it will not turn over to start. It will also not roll start.


If you got a strong oder of fuel in the cab. I would say you have a sever fuel leak. Check for fuel leaks. Now if when you say it wont turn over and you mean the engine wont crank over. Then you might want to pull some of the plugs just to make sure the cylinders are not full of fuel. if that be the case you have some leaking injectors

Bad fuel odor


1 - Is your check engine ligh ON - If so have the car checked for codes

2 - Do you notice if your car is harder on fuel - elantra's are known for having an 02 sensor stop working and not turning on the check engine light.

Strong odor of gasoline in passenger compartment


for sure there is fuel leafing but you have to locate from where, usualy this can happen from a leaking fuel pressure regulator and this can drip on the hot manifold and cause it to boil and smell the whole car secondly the vapor canister could be damaged and cause the same problem
