"what the is that smell??"

as i pulled into school yesterday all i could smell was natural gas. like that methane smell when your out in the country.this particular smell is uncommon to my area and it was very overpowering. when i got out of my car it was even stronger and it seemed to be coming from my rear end? an hour later i go out to my car and it still smells but now the inside of my car was filled with it? i go back to class and when my day was over the smell was gone? but then today i was driving downtown and it started again but not as strongly and then went away.. any clues??? and no its not old gyms clothes or something the inside of my car is clean lol.

I just got a letter the other day. What year is your car?

---------- Post added at 01:21 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:20 PM ----------

I got a letter in the mail today for my 2007 Chevy Cobalt involved in a safety recall 09226

General Motors has decided that a defect, in which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2007 model year Chevrolet Cobalt vehicles operated in areas that experience hot weather temperatures. As a result, GM is conducting a safety and continued satisfaction with our products

Why is you vehicle being recalled?

Your vehicle may have a condition on which the plastic supply or return port on the modular reservoir assembly (MRA) may crack. If either of these parts develop a crack, fuel will leak form the area. You may notice a fuel order while the vehicle is being driven or after it is parked. If the crack becomes larger enough, fuel may be observed dripping onto the ground and vehicle performance may be affected. If a sufficient amount of fuel were to leak out and if an ignition source were present, a vehicle fire could occur

Your Chevrolet dealer will inspect and, if necessary, replace the fuel pump module. This service will be performed for you at no charge. Because of service scheduling requirements, it is likely that you dealer will need you vehicle longer than the actual inspection time of approximately 15 minutes. if the fuel pump module requires replacement, an additional 1-1/2 hours will be needed

There was a little more to the letter but i hit all the main points and (I live in Florida)
