Question: Why does my oil and exhaust have strong gas smell?

My 2000 chrysler voyager 3.3 has strong gas smell in oil and emitting from exhaust.It almost always takes 3-4 turns of the key to start,once it does start there is a slight hesitation for just a second then idles fine.When in gear stopped it idles rough,not in park or neutral.Driving down the road it feels smooth as can be, at least to me,come to a stop light and i feel the roughness.When i pull away from the stop light there is slight hesitation for a second then it clears out and runs great.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would look for a gas leak at the injectors. Then If your check engine light is on I would get the codes from the PCM. That will tell you what system is having the problem. If no check engine light is on. I would check to make sure that one of the injectors is not leaking into the engine.

First thing i would like to say is you know your stuff.Fuel injector #2 could no longer seat properly and fuel was just dribbling into combustion chamber.I did forget to mention the check engine light was on when I first noticed the problem.I removed fuel pump relay and depressurised fuel system and put relay back in and light went off (i dont know if that is what made light turn off but that was the only change i had made).This stuff can be confusing if you dont have the knowledge so i appreciate the help,you have saved me money already.I have read if you get one injector replaced you really should replace them all is there any truth to that.Thanks again.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
