Question Exhaust - Nissan (Datsun) Sunny Pulsar

Hi,

I have a Nissan Sunny Pulsar and there is a strong smell of petrol coming out of the exhaust? This is worse when starting from cold.

You can also smell it when the internal heaters are on but not as strong?

I was wondering what would be causing this - someone said to me that it may be the contacts need changing?

Arrow Engine light

Hi,

I'm not sure if there is an engine light? Where would it be and what symbol would it have?

By engine tune-up I assume you mean a service?

The car was last serviced 2 years ago.

on the dashboard under fuel gage is check engine soon light. But I think it is time for tune up.And time to replace filters as well. (This is juist my opinion.)

by contacts you mean spark plugs ? yeah replace them along with everything else on the tune-up service ( fluids,filters,belts,pcv valve etc. )
