#5 of 6 smell of gas issue
Nov 30, 2009 (2:30 pm)
I have a 97 grand caravan. I had a similar issue. The check engine light kept coming on and indicated a small vacuum leak when I checked the ODB at Autozone. I examined all the vacuum lines, intake etc. No dice. I occassionally smelled gas, but not always. Then I thought of the fuel filter tube. I removed it. A rusting hunk. Expensive dealer only part, too ($248). Cleaned the old one up. Wire brushed, and acid treated, and yup full of tiny holes, some not so tiny. Patched it all up and painted it with POR15. That was two years ago and the check engine light has not come back on.

Had same problem, 97 Grand Caravan DO NOT PARK YOUR CARAVAN IN YOUR GARAGE ! I HAD DISCOVERED THAT THE LEAK CAME FROM BROKEN FUEL PUMP LINE (PLASTIC)! Leaking gas creates a high level of danger especially, if you happen to have a water heater in your garage! Hope this may be of some help?
