Whenever I start my 2002 325i, there is always a strong gas smell. It goes away after a few minutes but I don't think this is normal. I know my Oxygen Sensor is bad, but I haven't gotten around to repairing it. Any Ideas as to where the gas smell is coming from?

Could also be a cracked exhaust manifold. I'm having the same problem on my 99 but for some reason I only smell the gas when it's really cold. Hopefully we can find the true cause.

Same with mine, It only happens in the early morning or late at night when it is cold.
