Need help

So for the last two fill ups I've had at the pump, its made the inside of my car smell like gasoline, pretty strong too. Esp strong smell in my trunk. Has this happened to anyone else?

I hear this is a problem due to a bad fuel pump, I'm not sure if it was the final problem but id give it a look thru. Good luck with the problem, I'm sure the smell will stick around after you're done though. Just make sure you invest in some baking soda fridge packs

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

I would definitely get that checked out to make sure there are no leaks.

Sounds like the fuel pump man. I'm not too sure though, have it checked up at once.

Pop off your passenger lower back seat, remove phillips head screws holding fuel pump door, then have a look. The top of the pump assembly will be secured by a very large hose clamp type deal, but at least there you can have a look or smell.
