Also. along with the smell of gas, a very loud squeaking noise is occuring. I have just recently replaced the alternator belt. but it is the same loud constant squeak. only in gear, when in neutral, no squeak is heard. could the alternator belt be blowing again? even after I've replaced it? (same smell too)

Have you had the timing and balance shaft belts, pulleys, and rollers, inspected? When was the last time that they were replaced, inspected, tensioned.

They are under the timing cover on the front of the engine, and you cannot inspect them without removing the accessory drive belts, and the front timing covers.

Probably is not the drive tube bearings because the drive tube constantly rotates when the ehgine is running, even when it is in neutral, since the transmission is in the rear, and the only time it is disengaged is when the clutch is engaged.

Could be one of the belts is too loose, and rubbing on the inside of teh timing cover, or one of the pulleys or rollers has a failing bearing. If a pulley or roller bearing fails, then the corresponding belt will break or get thrown, resulting in bent valves, or broken engine.

The timing and balance shaft belts must be replaced every 30K miles or three years, whichever comes first. Failure to have this completed in a itmely fashion results bent valves, and ruined engines.

problem solved.
it was, and i quote from my friend
"the belt tensioner was missing a bolt and therefore it came apart and the serpentine belt came loose and snapped off."

still havent solved the squeaking noise though...
the timing belt was replaced when i bought the car, that was the first thing i had done.

FWIW..

The 924 cam pulley is a notorious squeaker as it gets old.

That's my bet.
