Default Fuel Smell When Cold Out...Fuel Rail/Injectors?

When its cold out and I first start the car, I get a strong fuel smell coming from the passenger side fuel rail. It only happens when there is a sharp drop in temp outside and goes away once the car is warmed up. I'm thinking this is probably the injector seals, but wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem.

Thanks,
Tim

There's a TSB for the fuel smell. check the maintenance forum for the number. basically a fuel line running under the intake manifold needs to be changed.

Link to the thread in the Warranty forum-

Note that if you are past the 3/36 warranty period this repair, if applicable in your case, will not be done for free. This is not a recall (although it should be), it is only a TSB similar to the one for clutch shudder. The cost of this repair is not insignificant because of the amount of labor involved, the intake manifold must be removed to replace the faulty lines.
