Hey Guys,

My mom's Quest is reaking of fuel. Some like that smell, but it does not go well with Chinese food. It started today with the cold snap. And it smells like I changed fuel filter with gas still coming out. Smeeeelllllls nasty. Anybody have any ideas what it could be?

VG engine I take it... the 3rd gen maximas have a huge problem with the rubber hoses going to the fuel rails. once they get a few years old, they develop tiny cracks and they leak when it gets cold outside. when it warms up, the leak tends to go away.

replace the fuel lines going to it. there's a few sections just a couple inches long, then a couple more (supply and return hoses running from the hard lines to the engine) that are a couple feet long. 6 ft of hose should more than do it.

pop the hood and take a look first. just follow the fuel lines up the firewall and check on the injector rails where the rubber hoses clamp on.. you should see where they're leaking if they are.
