2014 Silverado fuel smell in cabin/engine bay.

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone, This is my first post ever, and the first time I have "started a thread." I am reaching out because I am having an issue with my 14 Silverado All Star edition, and I just dropped It off at the Dealer I bought it from today. This truck is my first Domestic purchase over the past 20 years since I started driving. I have always had Foreign, mostly German cars, and I have been working in Dealerships basically since I was in High School. I also have never worked for a Domestic manufacturer, maybe that's why this is the first Domestic product I have bought.

 

Everything started about a week ago when I got into my truck to leave work and I immediately noticed a strong gas/fuel smell in the cabin. At first I thought it was a car in front or behind me, maybe even the area I was in, but the smell was there for the entire 30 minute ride home. Over the next few days the same thing happened several times. Over the past weekend I popped the hood and it was like a punch in the face! The fuel smell was definitely coming from the engine bay, and right into the cabin. I tried putting the A/C on, rolling down the windows, and shutting off the outside air. Didn't make much of a difference, still too strong to drive around.

 

After talking to a few of my Techs at my store, and other people in the Automotive industry, I found someone at a Chevy Dealer that told me there was an "Internal Bulletin" from the manufacturer that said there could be some 2014 models with a this concern. The bulletin has not gone public as of right now so not many people have heard of it. Even the Chevy store across the street from my store had no clue. But luckily I found someone at the Dealer I bought the truck from that actually cared enough to do 60 seconds worth of research. I have heard stories of injector seals not seated correctly and fuel is actually coming out from there, also maybe the fuel pump on the motor has a leak, but not sure yet. Hopefully I will hear soon as to what the Dealer found so I can get my truck back and not have to drive a Chevy Cruz that barely fits two people comfortably.

 

So I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with this... And if anyone is interested I can keep you posted as my situation progresses.

Whatever came of this? My truck acted similar yesterday and left me stranded with heavy gas smell. Dealer is looking in to it now.

i got a 2015 sierra 1500, I start noticing smell of the gasoline. And also it takes kinda long time when switching the engine on, like it takes 5 seconds cranking. Checked everywhere for leaks but I didn't find anything.
