How does one check for gas leaks on an 88 Daytona 2.5 liter? I did take the air cleaner off and noticed the air filter was pretty dirty so I took it out and will get a new one. The smell seems to be coming from the front of the car and when I sniffed around the engine when I got close to the throttle body is where I smelled the strongest odor gasoline (is this normal I don't know). Any how I just need to know the procedure so I can do it myself. Besides hoses, does the throttle body have a gasket that could be getting bad? After I drove it 5 miles yesterday, then parked it in the garage, when I got out of the Daytona I smelled an extremely strong smell of gasoline like someone had dumped it on the floor. I looked under the car but saw NOTHING on the concrete! UGH.
