Retrace your steps, what didn't you do ? take your time, review your work, clear any trouble codes from your computer , are your connections good ? check each spark plug to see if your getting spark. if not,then the entire distributor assymbly may need replaced, check cap & rotor, are spark plugs good? if no spark, then no voltage is getting to plugs from distributor assembly, (power transistor, ignition coil, or camshaft position sensor.) is ignition switch recieving battery voltage ? is ECM recieving bat. voltage ? make sure all fuses are OK .every time you do something. dry out any moisture in dis cap/rotor. check ECMrelay, the goal here is to get SPARK to spark plugs, remember that ! keep it simple, one step @ a time. ( do you have a haynes repair manuel, they cover this problem, that way you can test these things as they present them. GET ONE ,NOW!

It might be a long shot, but i have a 04 cavalier and i once smelled gas and had a putter issue. Turns out the fuel pressure regulator basically sits on the fuel rail with one screw on the side. Over time, the regulator either goes bad or becomes unseated off the fuel rail. In my case, both occurred. Went to O'reillys, bought a 48 bux fuel pressure regulator and replaced it. After that., no more gas smell and no more putter.

You could also have a bad idle air control but this would not cause the smell of fuel to occur, unless this bad valve is causing your pc to spit out an excess of fuel which is being unused or somthing.

After changing the coil pack and spark plug, why is it still skipping?


Timing could have jumped. Could be a bad head gasket also. even possible to be a small hole in piston check the cylinder for compression. Check the fuel injector to that cylinder if you have bad air to gas mixture it will throw a code of misfire change fuel filter check fuel injector to see if clogged. most likely it is the fuel injector .

Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

1 coil pack is not working but the other two work just fine 92 cutlass supreme 3.1


Make sure you are getting voltage to the coil pack (low voltage signal from the computer. You can measure the connector with a 12v meter with the key turned on to see if you have voltage.

Possible dirty fuel filter. I'd start there first, as it's the cheapest route, and quite possibly replacing the filter will solve your problem.
