I think its smething more serious. I just drove it to work and something is wrong with my fuel consumption. Does anyone know what could cause them.
When engine is running "idle" I start smelling gas in the vehicle, and the engines sounds like its lacking power and may stall. The range indicator shows that I am losing gasoline fast, which I smell in the car when this happens. Drove 20 miles, and lost 100. When I keep the engine reved up above 1000rpm I notice slower decline in gas burning ratio. If I come to stop, and the engine comes back to idle, it feels like it will stall, and starts jumping to 1000 rpm when it drops back to 500 rpm.
What is wrong? Anything obvious?
I need to fix ASAP, before my engine dies on me.
I am scheduled for Oil Change (I went 3000k sharp)
This started happing 2 days ago.
I added 2 quarts of engine oil, and it stopped.
Next day it happed again, I added 1 more quart, and it stopped again.
Later that day again, I added 2 more quarts, but this time it had no effect.
I have it parked outside think ing what to do.
What do you think is wrong with it?
too much oil ? sparg plugs? which fuel parts? Any ideas?
