I took my FJ into the Toyota dealer last fall to have some regular maintenance (45K miles) done before a trip; rear & front diff services, service transfer case, brake flush & new fluid, new power steering fluid, oil change & filter, tires rotated & fuel injection service. Ever since this service I smell gas or something burning every time I roll down any window when the FJ is going uphill or on the freeway, don't smell it when the windows are closed. Did a power wash on the engine but no change. FJ is stored in the garage and there are no leaks. Have taken the FJ back to the dealer twice and to another Toyota dealer and they can't find out what is making the smell. Called Toyota HQ in Dallas and they recommended taking it to an outside shop. Unless the FJ is under warranty they don't want to be involved. FJ is now at a third party shop undergoing diagnostics. FJ was perfect before I took it to the Toyota dealer for service and now I rarely drive it because of the smell.
