problem #2

Ever since I purchased the car it has had a smell of gas. I thought it would go away after a certain time but it didn't so I got the car checked out. I come to find out it has a gas leak. This is something very dangerous because it puts my life at risk and if anything happens the car could blow up. I purchased this car in June 2016 and im just a young 20 year man that is trying to make it through college.

In the 12 months I have had my car, it has been in the shop 7+ times for the air conditioning, the air cycles cold-hot-cold-hot-etc, then over time blows out hot air. The dealer has replaced all the air conditioning components under the hood and it is still not fixed, the car also has been in the shop 2+ times for stalling and engine loosing power problems, the dealer found nothing wrong and then took the top part of the engine apart and changed the valve clearance, they said the valves were "too tight" and causing the engine to loose power and sometimes stall, it still has the problem today and is not fixed.
