The weather is going south. Could be a reaction to the cold weather. Just follow your nose. Check under the hood first, mid frame, rear. If you see any leaks now would be a good time to take care of them, Not in 2 feet of water or snow. If it goes away it dosent sound like a problem, but if it gets worse get a pro to look at it. Id hate to see a perfectly good sami go up in flame. Jeep=no problem. Just not the sami.:D

DOH... Need a tow.

If you use a bick lighter instead of a flash light to find the leak your problems will all go a way.

gas or exhaust?
sounds like u need to check it over cause fuel leaks are dangerous.....

exhaust leaks are irratating and a free buzzzz

if it was afuel leak from the tank u would always smell it it could be a leak on the pressure side of your line to the injectors (or carb)


good luck

It is Parked and under construction....

Yeah, check your charcoal canister. It's on the firewall near your battery. Mine got plugged up (from being upsidedown) and started leaking [3]
