Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero
About four months ago driving dont the street my car start losting power,and running really rough. It now smells like gas when you start it and smoke rather bad when you stop at a red light,it wont start right away once you fill it up with gas. I have had a fuel pump ,water pump , wires and plugs put in it ,and there still no change. The oil is fine no water in it ,can you please give some idea on what me be wrong ? thanks
If you can smell gas ONLY when the engine is running, then the gas didn't get
burned completely. It could be the combination of the computer, oxygen
sensors, and/or catalytic converter is going bad. If you could smell gas when
it's parked, you might want to take it to a mechanic to have your gas line
checked for leaks and for pressure test. Here's a website that talk a little about
gas smell www.mycarsmellsbad.com good luck.
