HI, i would start by replacing the fuel filter and pump as well. this will be a good starting point to address the fuel distribution issue you are having. i would also recommend checking the air filter. if its dirty, replace it asap. Next, i would check the wires and plugs. replace the wires and plugs if found to be faulty or fouled.

    If your check engine light is on, i suggest taking it to a local auto zone for a diagnostic scan on the pcm/ecm. this is a free scan and, it will pull any trouble code that may be stored. this will help further if this issue continues after the suggested replacements above.

No power in engine when driving gas petal to floor and no power

Bad throttle position sensor, or MAS sensor is faulty. Check fuel pressure if these first two don't fix it.

When I put the gas petal to the floor first before cranking then cranks up smoke it coming out tail pipe and smelling gas

Hi there,

The starting technique you're referring to is not used on late model vehicles because of the fuel injection systems used. If you have a carburetor, when you press the accelerator pedal down, you're adding a lot (more than needed) of fuel mix to the engine. When it does fire up, what you're smelling is unburned fuel. Vehicle fuel is too rich at that point.

I have replaced my timing cover on a 95 ford thunderbird 3.8 vin 4. Now its real sluggish on take off...real bad when cold not so bad after warm up....timing a tooth to advanced????

Couldn't happen just from replacing timing cover. Now if you replace timing belt/chain then yes it would be sluggish or not run at all. Sound more like you have issue with cold start valve.
Also, the accumulator is a likely place to begin, particularly because you say that it's only the first start that has hard cranking. A properly-functioning accumulator keeps the fuel system pressurized enough to open the injectors without a lot of cranking. If pressure bleeds off due to a poor accumulator, the fuel pumps have to run a while in order to re-pressurize the system, hence, long cranking times. The quick test is to cycle the ignition key 3-4 times before you attempt to start the cold motor so that the pump runs each of those times and is allowed to build up some fuel pressure before the engine is started. If that test helps, you've identified a fuel pressure problem, almost certainly the accumulator.

2002 dodge grand caravan will run real sluggish when it is cold outside

Your motor oil may be too thick or carboned up. When you start it, let it run for a while and rev it up to clean out the carbon. Or your fuel injectors may be dirty.

I have to pump the throttle several times and then it starts sometimes and sounds like backfireing allthough its feul injected!

'pumping' a fuel injected engine is NOT like the old days (like with a carb)-if you hold the petal to the floor, it shuts off the injectors-NO petal, the injectors pulse (and dump fuel to an engine that is slow to start). If you are having hard starting, chances are good you have a flooding condition-leaking injectors, leaking O-rings, a damaged fuel pressure regulator could all be re3asons for your hard starting (and backfiring from a flooded engine). You should try to HOLD the petal to the floor and see if that helps-if it does, you should get the fuel regulator checked, replace the injector o-rings, check fuel pressure and might even need to consider replacing injectors themselves (or having them cleaned).

I just changed all 4 discs and pads. I have pumped and pumped the brake pedal and bled the system to no avail. I still can't get the petal to firm up. When engine is off, I can quick pump the petal...

If the system was fine before you changed the discs then it is most likely that the system has air in it or you have a leak at one of the cylinders. Double check your work, inspect the cylinders for leaks. on the rears you can pull the handbrake on and off a few times to adjust the rear pad position.

Bleeding is done one wheel at a time. Start with the wheel furthest from the master cylinder and work your way closer ( RRear, LRear, RFront, then LFront). The order is not really that important since they are on separate circuits on modern cars with ABS systems. But there is no reason not to stick to the tried and tested method. Keep the fluid topped up and if possible use a clear pipe on the nipple of the cylinder you are bleeding so that you can see if there are air bubbles in the system.

When i try to start my 2003 2.5 altima i have to

3 to 5 seconds is not really excessive. You might, however, want to try this...depress the gas petal to the floor then turn the ignition while slowly raising you foot off the accelerator. If this helps start the car the check engine light is probably indicating an oxegen sensor problem.

How do I reset the oil life indicator on a 2003 Envoy?

With the key on and engine off quickly fully depress the throttle three times in a row. "Oil Life Reset" should show up on the display.
