when i start my car in the morning or after gettin out of work theres a really strong fuel smell around the car, its a 99 SE 3.4L no engine mods, and car has less then 40,000 miles what could be wrong?
When I had a bad gas smell in my car, it was because of a leaking fuel pressure regulator.

nothing much, all the cars in my household do the same thing. I'm sure there is a technical explaination for it, but I think it is pretty normal.

One of the O-rings on the fuel rail could have failed - I strongly suggest you have it checked ASAP - it is a severe fire hazard

the smell only happens on a cold engine.
