Strong gasoline odor. Received a notice in 2016 regarding this. Notice said no action required if there was not gasoline smell. The odor was noticed about a month ago. Called the dealer that sent the notice who told me it expired! they never said the repair would expire, but to ignore it unless I smelled gasoline. So now gasoline fumes are not dangerous??

The contact owns a 2002 GMC Envoy. While driving the vehicle to the dealer at 60 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The contact was able to coast the vehicle off the road. The vehicle failed to restart and was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the fuel pump failed. The fuel pump was repaired and the contact was advised not to fill the tank above half. When the contact placed fuel in the vehicle, it leaked onto the ground. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The approximate failure mileage was 141,000. Updated 04/21/2016

Envoy 6-cyl

Everything started April last year and its one thing after another since. First my engine started stalling, while driving. One incident, I lost half a tank of gas within a 15 minute ride, which I have a 17 gallon tank. Then while driving on an expressway, it suddenly dropped from 70 to 20 before I could get over two lanes to get out of the way of traffic. Ive cleaned the throttle body, ive cleaned the camshaft actuator, ive replaced the air filter, fuel filter, and the oil twice within a 8 month period, and yet it still continues to stall. Now I recently change the water pump to see if that would help, even though my car was not over heating, now its stalling even worse; I cant even make it through a drive through without having to start it twice. Second and even scarrier issue, I hit pot hole one day and before I could make 15 miles, I heard grinding. A cv joint had to be replaced, then two days after that the other cv joint broke off and broke my front axle disconnect assembly. Did I hit anybody? no thank god I was in the right hand lane and could get over without hitting anyone or causing injury to myself. Ive replaced both cv joints and the assembly now and even did the struts while I was at it, but have also been told I need control arms now. And still my car is stalling, grinding when I turn and I cant get the check engine light to clear long enough to get it inspected. My drivers side windshield works when it wants to and now the car is starting to vibrate unbelievably. Ive kept my oil changed, ive kept my filters changed, ive never taken this thing off road and have had it over 7 years and just in the last year I have dumped more money in this car than I have since ive owned it.

It began with a gas smell for several weeks with no wet areas or drips. Now their appears to be a leak from the gas tank or filler tube and it has become more severe.
