Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Subaru Outback 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 51600 miles
I have a 2005 Outback and ever since last winter I have a really bad gas smell coming into the cabin when running the front window defroster or when I run the A/C with the recirculate Air feature turned off. Meaning letting fresh air in. I only get the smell when at idle or at a complete stop. This is not just a winter time issue, I get this smell constantly. It doesn't go away. I have had two seperate Subaru Dealers look at the car and they both say they don't smell it and that nothing is wrong, yet anybody I put in the car immediately smells it. This has been going on for a year now. Subaru won't won't acknowledge the problem and no dealer seems concerned enough to realy want to pursue this.
Does any body have any suggestions? I can't stand the smell anymore and am concered there could be a fire.
