Petrol smell....help!



  Clio1.2 R reg MK2 Phase 1
Hi guys,

just got back from a week on holiday, turned my Mark 2 Phase 1 (1998) Clio on, and through the fan, no a/c, there was a nasty smell of petrol coming in? not too bad, but fairly obvious!

Is this a common problem, or rather a serious problem? any help would be great. Diagnostics near speedometer showed nothing wrong, half a tank of fuel and everything on appearance ok under bonnet?

Thanks!

Will i be able to drive with the problem in the mean time? if it is a fuel return pipe?

depends where its leaking i suppose but wouldnt advise it really, try sealing it with something, you can get replacement pipes from scrappies/renault etc

Hi, just gone out and had a look, the problem does not start until i turn the engine on, and the smell goes after a while.

The air intake is at the top of the bonnet near the windscreen wipers, so do you think that i will be a cracked pipe?

Is it a common problem with Clio's? Quite annoying as need to drive tomorrow!
