Ford Explorer Repair Question
Other question is I have changed my gas cap 3 times in the past months because of smelling gas fumes at times and was told by one person that that is what it is. I don't think so because of purchasing different new ones has not fixed it. Do you have any suggestions to either question? Thanks so much for your time.

Is your coolant low? You may have a leak. Is your overflow jug empty? Make sure your engine is cold, this is very important, after sitting overnight and remove the radiator cap and check the level of the radiator. If coolant is OK, then it probably is your thermostat like Fordman said.
The fuel smell, make sure you don't have any leaks from tank to the engine. It may also be your evaporative emissions system. There is a charcoal cannister in your engine compartment. There are lines from your gas tank attached. The cannister traps vapors and sends it back to the engine to be burned. Check the cannister for cracks or damage and check the lines going to it also.
