The fuel rail that feeds the injectors will have a valve on it (some look like tire valves). If capped, remove it and see if you can get it to spit gasoline after trying to start; it should have some pressure even several seconds after turning over if the fuel pump is working.
You may also have clogged filter since I have noticed that in this era of artificially 'short' fuel supplies, some of the gas I've seen isn't fit for the lawnmower, let alone a car. If you can catch some of the gas (assuming some comes out) look at it to see if it is clear.

Oil smells like gas


Sounds like the engine has been flooded with gas due to excessive cranking which drained past the cold piston rings into oil crankcase. You have fuel & air but you do not have spark. 3 things come to mind: spark plugs, spark plug wires and ignition coils. Coils are on top with spark plug wires coming off them. Best of luck.

My olds wont turnover as im tryin to start it but it has been sitting for a while like six months what should i do for process of elimination its a 1996 aurora oldsmobile


Pretty good chance that most cars will run the battery down with no use over 6 months.
Put a battery charger on it first - and leave it on for a good amount of time.

Symtoms of a bad timimg chain/belt...but ran real


Problem is not solved but I did change the fuel filter, coil pack,ICM and have proper fuel pressure to the motor. Car starts but dies right away. I cant seem to find out if the fob on the key ring has something to do with stopping the motor. This fob says Radio Key by Secure Key with a number 35077 stamped on this thing.. Still trying to find out what this is and does it effect the cars ability to run
