smells like fuel...

Well it smells like gas when i have the heater on. Today got in my car after and its pretty cold outside. I turn on my heater and its just smells of gas inside the car. At first i thought it was somthing outside or on the car or somthing but after about 10 min of driving it got worse to the point i had a slight headace. I also have a loopy idle when the car is cold as well. When i first start the car it will tack up to 2000 then swing between 700-2100. Im not to concered about the idle its the gas smelled im worried about, but im not sure if that may contribute. any ideas??

Re: smells like fuel...

check your fuel rail and fuel filter for wetness could be jus a bad o ring on the injector or injector itself,or washers could be worn on the filter

Re: smells like fuel...

my guess would be your PCV valve the picture is a lil crappy honestly so its hard to see
it relieves pressure from your crankcase and puts it back into the intake for re-combustion
if its clogged or not working it could cause you to start springing leaks. i change mine out every tune up (5-6 thousand miles) its only like 5 bucks @ autozone

ok thanks. I was wondering because it just disintegrated in my hand while trying to find out my problem. Would it damage the car if i drove with out it for a few miles? 10-15?

For 10-15 miles no problem. You'll have a vacuum leak and crankcase gases are going go into the cabin.

Re: smells like fuel...

your hood will also have some oil spray from the open hole try to put something over it that does not clog the hole but keeps the oil spray down to a minimum
