I have an 86 caprice estate wagon when your at a red light or stopped you can smell a gas smell I don't know why? I had the fuel pump replaced recently and had valve covers replaced. puzzled any help would be appreciated thanks.

Rusted out sending unit lines?
Rotted steel lines from pump to carb?
Dry rotted rubber lines down at the pump?
Leaking carb seals?
Charcoal canister vent lines cracked broken?

Start car and let it idle. Sniff around.... Smell stronger up in the engine or at the back of the car?
Anything wet under the hood? Especially at the carb?

Don't mess around when it comes to fuel smells.... I've seen a few old skool carb'd cars go up in flames from leaking gas.

had my bud look at it was relieved it was such an easy fix it was a loose bolt on the carb that was a fuel line plug, tightened it up real good so far no problems.
