Smell, gas, I hate these Chrysler problems! I heard of one guy who was working on correcting one of these problems, started his car and his engine shot flames out of it so be careful with this one!!

My thought would be that it could be the O-rings, fuel line, gas tank, something like that.

To be safe since it's obviously a saftey issue the best bet may be to take it to a Chrysler/Dodge dealer.

Good Luck!

How long ago was it that you had the fuel rail recall done? Mine was done over a year ago now and every once in a while the fuel return line will start to weep gas out from where it mounts to the fuel rail. I believe that if that is the problem any dealership must make repairs. If you didn't have the fuel rail recall done too long ago then take it back and complain. I haven't had to pay for any of the 7 times that I have had to go back in and have the damn o-rings replaced on the return line. The last time I went in they didn't have any 'genuine' Mopar o-rings so they ran across the street and picked up one from NAPA and it fit BETTER than the 'genuine' one did. Snapped right into place without a problem. The other mopar o-rings took the tech about 20 minutes to get it even put together the first time not to mention getting it to stop leaking. I think that the 'genuine' parts are made to fit way to many different applications and don't work so well in some of them. Haven't had a problem with the NAPA o-ring since and that was over 1k miles ago. Before it was happening anytime there was a pretty big jump in temperature. I even had gas pouring out from under my car one day...

Get it fixed ASAP!

Good Luck,

Hmmm...you could easily identify where the gas smell is coming from my turning out the lights in the garage. Then, carefully, hold a lit match or lighter near the area where the smell originates.

If you find the sweet spot, you'll notice as the fume will ignite but then travel back to the source of the leak. You'll have just long enough to see where it's coming from before the rest of the place get's lit.

muhahaha... :D
