Question about 1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

1 Answer

One of six plugs getting wet, even thoung its getting current., Car shaking, smoking, and smelling gas

I started my car this morning but it wouldn't run, so I popped the hood and shook the wiring harness (I have been having some problems with the harness and usually playing with it would do). It started and began shaking, and then I notices that it started smoking and smelling gas. I tried a few things but nothing worked. Upon checking the spark plugs, I found that the first plug was wet (others were fine). I check and confirmed electric current was getting to all the plugs, but still it appears that the first cylinder is not functioning well. With current at the plug, but the plug still getting wet, and the shaking (and power loss) I couldn't tell what is the problem. ( I even changed the plug--the other one got wet too). Could you please help me? I have a 1995 e320. thanks

When I start my car in the morning and start it up Im smelling gas and I smelled it later after work


Well I can't find the leak from here but you must have one. Park your car in a clean spot and look for wet spots on the ground to determine where to start looking. I don't advise driving as you could catch the car on fire. Check around the fuel filter, and the fuel line on the engine for wet spots and gas smells.

SMOKING COMING FROM OIL SPILLED ON THE ENGINE AND MANIFOLD WHEN YOU CHANGED VALVE COVERS.OIL PROBABLY GOT IN PLUGS HOLES FOULING OUT PLUGS. SPRAY PLUGS WITH CARB CLEANER OR BRAKE CLEANER TO CLEAN THEM.DRY THEM. REINSTALL PLUGS BACK IN THE ENGINE.CLEAN OIL OFF ENGINE AND MANIFOLD SO IT WONT SMOKE. CRANK ENGINE SHOULD BE OKAY.

95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??


The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.

Mitusbishi eclipse will not start


YOU HAVE A BLOWN HEAD GASKET THAT IS`ALLOWING THE COOLANT TO GET DRAWN INSIDE THE CYLINDERS AND THAT WOULD EXPLAIN THE WHITE SMOKE(STEAM) IT SMELLS LIKE GAS BECAUSE THE SPARK PLUGS ARE WET WITH WATER/COOLANT. HOPE THIS HELPS. SORRY FOR THE BAD NEWS. IT CAN BE FIXED BUT IT WON'T BE CHEAP. BEST OF LUCK.
