Car wouldn't start, now idles rough at start up.

At first the car wouldn't start. Removed a spark plug and could smell gas. The car started with the plug removed. Replaced the plug wires and it starts, but it runs rough for about a minute. The car has 215,000 miles on it.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

What would cause 93 chevy c1500 rough idle smells of excess gas at exhaust


Does the truck seem fine when you first start it & then acts up when it reaches operating temp?
That would lead me to look at my oxygen sensor, a bad sensor can cause the truck to run "rich" which would explain the fuel smell in the exhaust.

White smoke and foam in the gas tank indicates antifreeze leaking into the engine somewhere. Do you smell antifreeze? You may have an engine seal leaking, most likely head gasket. It may be affecting the various engine sensors.

Check the spark plug. My truck did the same thing and it was because the spark plug had completely been removed.

Car wouldn't start .told crankshaft sensor faulty / replaced but still not start & smells as if flood cab


Before you go for anything, try the following: 1) check if there is any spark goes from distributor or coil to leads .
2) check if your car fitted with injection system,if the injectors are spraying correct or are not. If not means that too much fuel in the combustion chamber and kill the spark.
3)remove the spark plugs - after you start for couple of times - if are dry or wet. if are wet probably you have problem with the injector or spark lead,coil or distributor.
4) blocked catalytic converter.
5) ECU ( Electronic Control Unit.) faulty.

Sounds like you have some significant carburetor or fuel line problems. I wouldn't drive this thing at all if you smell gas inside the car. Gas fumes are more explosive than gasoline itself. One small electrical spark and at best, you'll explode and die. At worst, you may end up with burns all over your body and spend the rest of your life in terrible pain.

Too many possibilities

Won't turn over is one problem -battery,cables,grounds,
starter,solenoid,etc

Idles rough-- vacuum leaks,spark plugs never replaced,
egr valve etc

Worn O2 Sensors
Dirty MAF Sensor
Old Fuel Filter

You have to go into a lot of technical detail & history
on your vehicle, for us to even guess.

the gas smell makes me think EGRS (Exhaust Gas Recirculation System) check all your Vacuum hoses, start at your charcoal canister and work backwards.

Possible injector failure. locate by disconnecting injectors one at a time. The one that makes no change is the questionable. Status of spark plugs need chkg also. pull the plugs an the one that looks washed is questionable good luck
