Did you run out of gas before filling? The fuel Filter may be clogged or The fuel pump may be dead. Only a Mechanic can tell.------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sounds like head gasket needs replaced or worse one of the heads is cracked leaking antifreeze into cylinder burning out the exhaust, would advise not to continue running as you can lock up the engine if antifreeze is leaking into the engine oil. It will seize the bearings blowing your engine.

Takes a long time to start,when started it putts.


distributer cap and button are weak it sounds like
put the screw driver in the spark plug boot. close to a ground
make sure its not aluminum.
turn the engine over when its somewhat dark
look for the intensity of the spark.
if the sparks bright then its strong IE if the sparks not strong means its the coil that needs to be replaced.or the wires
More then likely its the cap button or plug wires..
if there is any cracks in the wires they will leak power out.. making it use more gas to make it run.

When i start my car you smell gas ,and it smoke.


HTML clipboard 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.

It sounds like the idle speed actuator is part of the issue. I would also have the exaust inspected for a blocked catalytic converter.

Car has starting problems


The signs you mention 'putt putt' are normally casued by excessive fuel, something approaching a flooded engine. If you do this with the hood open, you will probably smell raw gasoline.
A cold engine needs an extra shot of fuel to fire off but once warm, it gags on it. I don't know your car so I can't tell you what controls the extra gas for cold starts; it seems to be doing it whether cold or not. I guess I would first check any electronic temperature sensor which could be located in the cooling system or intake or exhaust system. Your new computer is getting the same wrong information as the old one.
