I have been smelling gas INSIDE my car when I start it. Seems like it is coming right throught the vents in my dash. The dealer ignored it a couple times until I told them I was getting headaches and was going to see a doctor. Now all of a sudden, they tell me I have a fuel injector seal bad and they wont give me my Tuc back un til they fix it because it could blow up. Ever see a dealer like this? It is unreal! First two times, they never smelled it, now that I mention a doctor, they find a gas leak.
I cant stand how dealers have to duplicate the problem to do anything about it. I said I smelled gas, what was I making this up?

Also, twice in the past year I have had my check engine light come on and of course my dealer said, it they cant see the light, they cant do anything about it even though codes were registered. Could that light of been from my faulty injector?

Thanks guys
You guys are alot of help.

Thanks, it's always good to start the day with a good laugh :lol:
I can just see the dealer's face when you said doctor, poor guy probably saw triple digit lawsuits.

Hmm, this is worrysome. A friend of mine who drives a Tiburon recently expirenced what I thought was a rather rare occurance- His engine caught on fire. Apparently it was a fuel injector that was messed up, and also one of the tubes that had lost the lining. They fixed it all for him and everything, but he said that the dealer told him a lot of hyundais seem to be showing this problem lately. So at least it didn't blow on you I suppose, although the run around crap is just as irritating.

Honestly, I never thought I'd hear of anything other than a lamborghini's engine catching on fire. Was kinda a good deal in the end though, I mean, new engine block, fuel lines, and a new hood aren't a cheap bundle. Glad you're getting the problem fixed though.

Dealers SUCK.... PERIOD!!!! You may find a good SERVICE MANAGER at a dealer that really knows his cars and how to provide good customer service, but that's RARE. As for the check engine light, it probaly did come on from the leaking fuel injector but the code in the computer might have been for a mixture issue like high oxygen or an intermittent misfire. I don't think there would be a code for "leaking fuel injector". In any event, LOOSE THE DEALER and drive the 30 miles to try your luck with the other one.... IMHO
