I have a 1997 Chevy cavalier z24 it's hard to start it and when it does start I smell raw gas I just replace spark plugs and map sensor and throttle body sensor wen put it in gear a the car die


I saw what you replaced, but, didn't see any testing? Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, see if pressure will hold for a bit, everything off. If the pressure drops like a rock, you have a fuel pressure leak. Check fuel pressure regulator vacuum line, if it has gas in it, the regulator is faulty. Could have leaking fuel injector or the fuel is leaking back through the fuel pump.
Any applicable trouble codes? To check codes yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.
Your coolant temp sensor might cause it to flood, if it is flooding? How long since a tune-up? Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.
Smell of the crankcase oil dipstick, if it smells like gas, I wouldn't drive it till you fix the problem. Change oil and filter as many times as needed to get rid of the gas.

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.

I am smelling fuel and it burns alot of gas.


Check for leaks, service engine lights since CTS (Coolant temp sensor) can cause the vehicle to run rich. Keep in mind that there is a lot of Ethenol in our gas that is lowing the gas mileage on our vehicles.The canister purge tank can cause gas smell if it isn't working right, but the computer should give you a service engine light on any of these.

Smells like gas only on inside of car. u can smell it more when you crack the windows. car shakes like it needs tune up and when you push on the gas but i already did tune up and gas filter


Fix the smell first, as you are a fire/explosion hazard. Look for wet spots, but something, somewhere is leaking. Inspect the evaporative recovery system and all hoses. When this is resolved, look after the rough running on acceleration.

My car has poor acceleration and it shakes when stop also smells


Sounds like you're missing on a cylinder or two. Tune it up, first. That might very well fix your problem. Tell the part store guy you need a COMPLETE tune up kit and replace everything that he gives you parts for. Not just plugs and wires, although they would be better than nothing. I'm pretty sure this will fix you up. The symptoms you're describing are classic for a tune up.

When I take off it sputters, up to 40 to 60 mph it sputters, what is that ? I just bought this '97 Nissan Maxima, it runs real good except that problem. We've tried putting injector fluid in it, it works...


This could be water in the gas lines or, you may have wire and plug issues as well. I would take this car in for a full scale tune up. make sure they check the distributor points as well. Changing the fuel pump wouldn't hurt at all.
