Check spark plugs, if one or more damaged this will explain rough running, and the smell of unburnt fuel, while you have plugs out give them a good clean. if they are wet with fuel then they are not sparking, wipe with soft cloth. to check if plug is sparking, take one out, leave it in the HT lead, get someone to hold it against the top of engine block and turn over engine. WARNING: HT LEADS CARRY A BIG CHARGE DO NOT HOLD LEAD WITH BARE HAND, USE SOMETHING NON CONDUCTIVE TO HOLD IT DOWN WITH ie, A BIT OF WOOD. if it sparks, its fine, put it back in, and remove another, and repeat the procedure and so on.

How do i stop my 1994 ford explorer from sputtering and shutting down when driving at low speed


Not getting enough fuel. There are two coolant temperature sensors one for the gauge. one for the computer. the one to the computer monitors fuel. When it fails the engine is slow to start the first try and there is a strong odor of gasoline. The engine will run rough at some speeds and sometimes stall.

My a4 just lost power as if the turbo isnt kicking in, does anyone no what it could be


The use of contaminated gasoline or gasoline with a low content of deposit control additives may result in one or more of the following conditions:
^ Excessive accumulation of deposits on intake valves, intake manifold, fuel injectors and combustion chambers. ^ Engine runs rough after cold start. ^ Excessive engine cranking time. ^ Hesitations while driving. ^ Rough engine idle. ^ Reduced engine performance. ^ Poor fuel economy. Conditions may be severe enough to illuminate the MIL in conjunction with storage in the ECM data memory of DTCs for misfire (example: P0300, P030x) and / or lean fuel system (example: P0171, P0174, P1128, P1130, P1136, P1138).
Technical Background
^ Condition may be caused by use of contaminated gasoline. ^ Condition may be caused by use of gasoline with a low content of deposit control additives. Production Solution
Not applicable.
Service
If use of contaminated gasoline is suspected:
Consider advising the customer to change gasoline source (brand/gas station). Contaminated gasoline may exhibit one or more of the following characteristics:
^ May have unique color and odor. ^ May contain undissolved water. ^ May contain sediments and suspended matter. ^ May appear cloudy and (after settling) may show signs of separation. Repair:
Gasoline additive G 001 700 03 or G 001770 A2 can be used for removal of existing carbon deposits from:
^ MPI engine ^ Injectors. ^ Combustion chambers. ^ Intake valves. ^ FSI engine ^ Injectors. ^ Combustion chambers. Tip: For removal of carbon deposits from intake valves of FSI engines, refer to TSB 2019948.
Mix the additive with gasoline directly in the full fuel tank following the mix ratio. For example, 60 ml per 30 liters gasoline, 150 ml per 20 gallons of gasoline.

Engine runs rough


Rough engine running is an indication of many things, which could be one or more of the following:
  • fouled fuel
  • dirty fuel line/filters
  • dirty or NO engine oil
  • dirty intake manifold/throttle body
  • faulty spark plugs [for petrol/gasoline]
  • incorrect engine timing
  • faulty ECU [for EFI engines]
  • faulty idle-up controller [rough idling with a/c engaged]
This is a broad answer to your engine symptom, but it is always best to have this checked by a qualified engine mechanic.
Hope this helps.

Intermitten starting issues with 1993 Mazda MX5 Miata


Sounds like a heat sensitive sensor--either the crankshaft or camshaft unit. Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner, read any code(s), and pursue to repair(s).

97 Gmc suburban 1500, engine tries to turn over but will not start. Usually happens after not being driven for a day, And, there is a gas odor coming from the engine area.


Anytime you have an odor of RAW GASOLINE, it is wise to discontinue the running of the engine till it located and corrected. Neglecting this fact could lead to an UNHEALTHY situation. Hoping you're getting my message. The reason it develops the problem after sitting a day is because the fuel that is SUPPOSED to be waiting in the fuel rail for the engine to start , has now leaked out and is not there FOR THE ENGINE TO RUN, so it cranks, NO START. Hope this helps.
