I have noticed a fairly strong gas odor inside my 1992 Saab 900 after a recent fill up. Any ideas as to what is causing it?
Response From carjunky
this could be from a number of things... for one let the car air out before driving it with the windows down, because it can be dangerous driving and inhaling the fulms...
Also the most likely cause for this was that the gas station has over filled your tank a little bit and that left over gas came into the truck compartment... has happened to myself a few times..
drive around for a few days and as the gas gets lower in the tank the order should disappear...
as with other possible causing I'm not sure.... does anyone else have any ideas?

TAKE CARE OF THIS!! Could be rust or damaged fuel lines, tank and anything that carries fuel. It may be nothing but a bit too full and be fine.
If it hasn't stopped yet park it out doors if you have a garage. Be safe, T
Response From Guest
It could need a new "gas fume accumulator" I can't think of the technical name but it looks like a coffee can and its basically a charcoal filter used to take the fumes out of the vacuum system.(or so it was explained to me) I had a similar issue in my saab I changed it & the fumes went away the same day. before you act on this thread see what the other s post in reply to it!!

Question From Guest on oil leak in middle rear of Saab 9-7x
I have an oil spot on the garage floor in the middle read of my 2009 Saab 9-7x. Leaving for a trip to the mountains in the morning. What could it be? Is it safe to take on a long one week trip??

I know Saabs are unreliable, but a 2009? If you were going on a short one week trip, I'd have the dealer take a look, as it's under warranty. But, since you are going on a long one week trip, I'd have the dealer take a look, as it's under warranty. Sorry, couldn't resist.

Hi I own a 1999 Saab 9-5 and recently I have had trouble getting the car to stay running when it is idling positioned uphill. It also sometimes has trouble starting up. I have no Idea what kind of problem this is, does anyone have any advice?

If it only happens when facing up hill, I would look at the fuel level at the time and the fuel pump.
