    do you have a gas leak...i have a 97 sunfire as well and maybe last summer i had to get a new gas tank because it leaked gas really bad. i could only fill it a quarter tank because the leak was very shallow into the tank. i couldnt drive anywhere. that might be it.

A vacuum leak could be the problem.A visual inspection of the vacuum hoses would be in order.If you hear a hiss sound when at idle you have a bad vacuum hose/line.

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.

My 1997 sunfire will not start when it rain, gets damp out or get cold...was told i need 2 new coils, 4 spark plugs, ignition wire and a valve changed...also told i have a gas leak and need a new gas...


Gas leak & tank would be my top priority. Try some ignition spray from autoparts store to get you by for now, as far as wires etc go, but get that fuel leak problem fixed first.

MY 97 PONTIAC SUNFIRE IS BURNING A LOT OF GAS


Is the check engine light on? If you have a sensor that is bad, it will cause bad fuel mileage. Especially if it is an oxygen sensor. It might just need a tune-up.

GAS IN ENGINE OIL


The engine is running way to rich, that would be the only reason for gas in the oil, things that cause a rich mixture are leaking fuel injectors or to much fuel pressure, have these checked by a shop, also do u have a check engine light?
