If you have tried starting it for a while , this can give off a petrol smell because if the engine isnt firing then the bores are getting floaded , the fuel cut off switch should only switch off for a reason ,, EG head on bump , part from that the switch could be faulty. but when the car runs after a short while and still stinks of fuel i would advise to get it checked out asap .. matdav69

Use a bottle of yellow HEET dry gas / fuel dryer to remove moisture in your fuel tank.

Check the coil + wires for water / moisture drip / wetness.

Two weeks ago when i went to drive my 2004 Oldsmobile Alero..it was hesitating and started to shake if i went above 25. Then the service engine light came on and was blinking at me. I kept it under 20 and...


it could be ignition coil(coil pack). misfire and vacuum leaks gives you engine light's on. and if fuel pump or filter not good, engine wont start.

I was driving and went to turn and the car cut off. I coasted it to a safe spot and waited. Tried to start the car up and it turns over but doesn't start. It sounds like it just not getting enough gas....


could also be a crank sensor or a ignition module as this is a older vehicle it will have a ignition module but where to look first i cannot say as never seen this model here in spain ,also check for a wiring connector somewhere on the vehicle under the bonnet

1995 mercury tracer car overheated an stopped . went back the following day after cooling , engine turns but wont start. do I need to turn the fuel cutoff switch and reset button?


I don't think the fuel reset is going to do it. Does the engine sound different when it turns over than it used to? I think you might have got it too hot. Did you shut it off or did it shut its self off?

What else to check?


Check your fuse for the transmission if it is an automatic. It may have went into a limp mode without power to the soleniods as such all you will have is 2nd gear and reverse. Also the PRNDL switch may not be getting power too, so it would give you trouble starting.

Car wont start


check to see if you have an inertia switch or fuel cutoff switch, usually they are mounted in the trunk, when the car gets stopped suddenly, the switch might mistake that for an accident and cut fuel untill the switch is reset
