2011 LR4 has strong gasoline smell after turning off the engine. No smell in under the hood, mostly by the rear driver-side wheel. Any thoughts of what this could be?

Look for crack or proven connector to the pipe going to the fuel tank do you know if you have inline filter or modification to the fuel system? If not look for cracks if yes check all connections and make sure they all very tied and I don’t recommend driving it till you find the issues.
You may be able to narrow you search by starting it and try to follow the smell if you can or follow the line and check. Hope that give you an idea to start troubleshooting and help. God bless

Where is your fuel tank fill door? Near the driver-side rear wheel by any chance? That's where I'd start looking for loose vent tubes or corrosion in the filler neck, etc.

SOURCE: 2003 Chevy Impala Service Traction Sytem show on Dash

I can't answer the question about the gas fumes, but I had the same problem last year with the "Service Traction Sysytem" message and the Trac and ABS lights coming on in my Impala. Mine turned out to be because of a bad wheel bearing, that was causing the ABS and traction system not to work. I'm not sure if you've experienced this, but another thing that would happen with mine was that I would go to brake and have a hard time depressing the brake pedal, almost like it was pushing back. That is the point when the Trac and ABS lights came on.

SOURCE: burning smell coming from my 2003 jeep liberty

I would take it to a shop right away. Do you see any fluids on the ground after you park or are you low on coolant or oil? This could be a electrical problem on its own. If you don't know what your doing don't go messing around with it.

Gas leaking front passenger side of ford windstar


Have you looked under the hood? (I don't mean to sound like a wise guy.) There are two shiney metal pipes one on the front of the engine and one on the rear as you look at it from the front. They run from right to left on the engine. These are the fuel racks that feed the fuel injectors, (assuming that you have a 3 litre or larger v6 engine). These can concievably rust at the left, (passenger), end and blow gasoline out the passenger side. It is also possible that gas could be leaking anywhere on the engine and roll off the passenger side of the engine or if the fuel line on the driver's side has rusted over a cross member of the frame and possibly roll to the passenger side. Also, there is pretty good pressure on the fuel line when it is running. If there is a rust hole on the right side of the line itself, it could spray to the passenger side, hit something and drip off from there. These are just possibilities. Good luck. Jeff M.

This could either be a leaky injector or a ruptured fuel line in the engine compartment.

It has a very strong gas smell when idling and after you turn it off.


Look under the car to see if you have any gasoline on the ground. If the odor is that strong, I would not recommend driving the car until you find the leak. Try to locate the area of the car were the smell is strongest, rear of the car, center or front under hood.
Carefully check all fuel lines with a flashlight and feel for any wet spots.
Good luck,
Let me know.

Gasoline odor


Oh yes there is and there is a charcol canister up under the hood that captures the vapors if the canister is full you could smell fuel.
You will need a shop that has a SMOKE MACHINE to find the leak in the evaporative emissions plumbing from the tank to the engine compartment.

Please give me a fixya! Rating if this information is helpful
