You don`t give to much info on your problem.are the plugs black/sooted or are they fuel fouled with unburnt gas.how old are the plugs and are they properly gapped.the ignition wires may be no good and need replacing.has the fuel system been cleaned like the injectors.they may be dirty and allowing too much fuel into the combustion chamber.you don`t say what type of car you have so systems are different on different cars.you could have a bad sensor like a throttle postion sensor(tps),mass airflow sensor(maf),manifold air pressure sensor(map)so maybe you should have the computer(ecm) checked for codes and have the data looked at on a scan tool.some suggestions to try.

What can cause a 1995 corcica to go dead and smell of gas


Check for leaking fuel lines or a puddle of gas under the car. If the exhaust smells like gas then the gas isn't burning completely and may be a number of things like spark plugs, plug wires, clogged air intake, fuel injector that stuck open...

2002 kia sedona will not start, new starter , sounds like not getting gas or maybe flooding any ideas


If you smell gas it is getting gas, if not check the fuel filter. Next thing to check is to see if there is a spark. Remove the spark plug from the engine. Have someone crank the engine with the spark plug grounded, see if there is a spark. Also check for the smell of gas in the spark plug hole.

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.

Burning much gas


A lot of things can cause a car to burn more gas. A clogged fuel filter, bad spark plugs and spark plug wires. Also a clogged O2 sensor will cause the engine to work harder reducing fuel mileage. Perform a complete tune up, replace the spark plugs and wires, replace the fuel filter and air filter.

Car wont start, sounds like out of gas but tank is full


A car not starting can be caused by many, many things.........but...................a bad thermostat or a good thermostat will not cause or keep a car from starting in any way. you need to know if it is getting gas to the cylinders........and to check for spark at the cylinders.......pull a spark plug wire at the spark plug, pull the spark plug and see if it looks wet or smells like strong gas odor....then plug wire onto spark plug, (without re-installing spark plug), and hold spark plug onto a grounded metal object on engine (using a rubber insulated object, so you don't get shocked), then have someone turn engine over and look to see if spark plug sparks........if yes, re-install spark plug, etc.......your ignintion is sparking, but if you are getting fuel, it may be a jumped timing chain? You may need mechanical help........don't trust the person that told you about a thermostat........

Engine is not running


Looks like u better find a ride to work. U need spark and gas for the car to run. When u turn the key, does the engine turn over? If it does, u should check to see if there is spark at the plugs. Remove a spark plug wire, remove the spark plug (if u have an extra plug, just plug it into the removed wire) place on nearby metal surface, turn key, watch for spark at tip of plug. If u see spark, check to see if gas is getting to spark plugs. After several attempts to start, you should see gas (wet) on plugs. Let me know what u find
