What was the Jeep in the shop for? Do you have a lift? The trackbar may have hit the gas tank (the snap noise) and if you have stock skid it could have bent into the tank (the smell).

Remarkable that the only punctuation in that entire breathless run-on monstrosity is in the tire size. At least we know your period works.

Get under it and sniff out the source of the fuel smell.

I'm on my phone so quite frankly being grammatically correct and the proper use of punctuation is of little concern to me thanks for your thoughts though

Jeep was in the shop to have a new fuel tank and fuel pump installed and the jeep has no lift

Make sure they didn't push the tank towards the front.

I find it sad you are worried solely about his punctuation instead of his Jeep relates issues.

Sent from my phone where grammar isn't easy.

You will attract a larger audience if you use punctuation.

You'll grow up someday son. Like another said, if you communicate like a big boy, you'll get a larger audience. Communicate like a 5th grader and you'll get 5th grade replies.

Take it back to the shop and tell them you smell fuel. Don't mention anything about dropping the clutch.

Agree on going back to the garage the fact that you are smelling fuel makes me think you need to inspect the whole fuel system from back to front. Either that or it is completely a coincedence. What was it in the shop for in the first place? It may be whatever was done may have ended up damaging one of the fuel lines

X3 on the grammar
We aren't here to spend time trying to interpret a poorly written post, grammar is everything when you are looking for assistance. If the OP doesn't take the time to make sure what they are asking is clear, why should the responders take the time to answer? Posting on phones suck big time but laziness is no excuse. It's also about respect as one obviously doesn't think much of the people they are asking for help from if they can't take an extra minute to make it clear.

We can help him with his Jeep and his grammar at the same time...

We're just that good.
