Hello Everyone

Hey Everyone, My Name is DC, I'm From Palm Coast, FL . I got a my Cobalt 2 yrs ago. I Came Across this Site while Searching " Why is there a Smell of Gas after Shutting the Car off " on Google. I dont know anything about cars. but i was Wondering why it would be doing that . Also it take a little while before The Engine starts. It Gives That Sound when its trying to start and then Starts. I Was Looking it up, and i think it could be the Fuel Module it says but im not sure. I want to Take it to the Dealer where i got it and Have them look at it, but my Warranty Ran out, I did Receive a Recall Notice last year in march I think it was, I Ignored the notice cuz i didn't see the need for it ( as the car was working fine ). If anyone could help me, that would be great, I Have a 2007 Cobalt .......

Take it to the dealer. It sounds like you have the issue that correlates with the Fuel Recall.

I had a problem with mine that was similar to yours. but mine didnt smell like gas. i was told that it was my O2 sensor was going out and that was the reason that it was not starting right.
