    Gas smell in engine bay??

    I recently found out that every morning the engine bay smells like gas. I've only noticed the smell on startup, especially during cold mornings. After driving it around and the car is warm, the smell is gone and no more smell for the rest of the day.

    Look at the stickies. This is a very well known problem that has had a TSB out for it for many years.

    Thanks. Hopefully its nothing too bad. -- For some reason I just think its because the injectors are going bad, since I've bought an engine (EJ207 v8) and its probably been sitting in a warehouse for quite sometime.
