I have the egr tube blocked off at both ends, I have a strong gas smell , the car runs fine and idles at 1000 RPMs. Could this gas smell be caused by a bad 02 sensor while the EGR tube is totally blocked off ? It isn't pulling any codes.

Another source may be the evap. canister. Make sure the vacuum lines are connected.

Yes, first thing to check is the cannister. It is vital to eliminate the fumes from the gas tank vent

I'm told I have a gas smell also, but I think what I smell is oil and antifreeze.

I do see something wet around the big hex thing with a small tube under the plenum on the driver's side. Is that the cold start injector? It's not loose, neither the hex cap or the pipe. I ordered an injector o-ring gasket set from Summit Racing. I assume you loosen the hex cap and replace what's underneath. On the right track? Any help?

Thanks! Good to know. Having raw gas on the engine makes one a tad nervous.

In addition to these suggestions to check the evap. canister, make sure you check the filter that is at the bottom of it. When you remove the clamp holding the canister and remove it, you will see a filter on the bottom of it. Often this filter gets overlooked as it's not mentioned in the service schedule to replace it, but if it's dirty and clogged it will create a strong fuel smell.

How do you tell if the evaporator canister is bad?
