If your car has an evaporative emissions control system (EVAP), which captures and recirculates fuel vapors from the fuel tank to prevent them from escaping into the atmosphere, you need to check it too. If there's a problem with the EVAP system, it could cause a gas smell in the engine bay when you start your car.
Did you recently fill up your gas tank? You might've overfilled it, and some fuel may have spilled out and onto the engine or fuel system components, causing the smell.
One more thing to check is your air filter, make sure it isn't clogged or dirty. If the air filter is clogged or dirty, it can cause a rich fuel mixture to enter the engine, which could cause a temporary gas smell in the engine bay when the car is started.
Lastly, it's always a good idea to have a certified mechanic help you out in inspecting your vehicle to properly diagnose the issue. Hope this helps!
