Hi, 2002 dodge Dakota, 4.7l, got home from work and shut off. 10 minutes later, went to start and made a noise like a car makes when you try and start car when it is already started, then idle was rough,...


The chain could jump a tooth or two, but normally a chain or gear breaks. You could pull the spark plugs and check compression to find out.
It sounds like one or two injectors may have failed allowing liquid gas to flow into the cylinders.

Will not start appears no gas


The most common reason a car will crank but not start and you smell gas is you flooded it. Too much gas to the engine causes too rich a fuel mixture and the fuel won't ignite.Click this link below for more troubleshooting :---http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2012/01/car-will-not-start-and-smells-like-gas.html

2000 nissan maxima won't fire when trying to start. it turns over but won't fire. it started once and ran but won't start again


sounds like it might be flooded. Try and remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse block that is just in front of your left knee. While it is out crank the car and see if it wants to start and hold down the gas pedal all the way and then relase it and back and forth and once you get it to run have the fuse ready in your hand and in front of the spot to install it. and then keep the rpm's up with the gas pedal until the smoke clears out behind the car.

My volvo 740 non turbo car has resently failed to start i need some ideas on what to do, When i try to start the car it will crank but will not turn over and start, this is my first car so i have no idea...


the engine is either not getting fuel, or is not getting spark. with the ignition key in the "run" position, listen under the rear of the car (near the fuel tank) for the sound of the fuel pump. or, after cranking on the starter for a while, remove a spark plug and smell it. smells like gas? if so, the problem lies in the electrical area. if not, fuel is not getting to the engine.

I smell gas when i crank up


This sounds like a choke problem or a fuel problem. The gas smell is coming out of your exhaust pipe. It has too much fuel for the engine to burn until it has time to clean the cylinders out a little by spinning it over for a longer period of time then you will get black smoke and a raw gas smell when it does start. Many things can contribute to this condition. The engine computer is controlling the amount of air and fuel that the engine gets. So I would begin there. With a diagnostic test. Also look at the spark control and the air intake system to make shure it is not stopped up

Engine cranks but wont start


lets forget about the items you replaced.This sounds like a differnt problem;1the reason you get the gas smell is because the engine is not fireing and gas is is waiting about in the cyclenders waiting to fire: my main suspect in this case would be battery/alternator;; if your air filter is ok.? try jump starting the car if this successful then its a battery/alternator problem.hope this helps.adrian
