Hi everyone..

I just bought a 2014 kia forte ex. I have recently ran into some weird problems with it. When idling, I can smell gas outside of the vehicle. When driving it, it starts sputtering, and it feels like when you have a manual and you’re in too high of a gear for the speed? It’s also slowing itself down. I’ll take my foot off of the gas and it immediately starts pulling itself back. Idk what’s going on with it but it’s weird. Any ideas? o_O

If you smell gas then you may have a fuel leak! Fix it!

I agree with ForteSX2.4. First thing I'd do is put a pressure tester on it and check the fuel pump pressure. I had a POS Equinox several years ago that I could smell gas in and it was a cracked fuel pump feed on top of the tank. You definitely need to park it until you find where it's leaking. It could be a fire and health hazard to keep driving it like that.
