When cold starts but dies.to start, peddle to floor, rev a minute then it idles but at times dies when accelerating from a stop. Raw gas smell present and puff of blue smoke when it starts.


have you checked the cylinder compressions as backfire and blue smoke can be a symptom of low compression , either rings or valve seats but would need a dropdown test to be sure

I STAND CORRECTED, TO RICH AND TO ANSWER YOU YES IT ACTS LIKE IT WANTS TO STALL. ALSO ERROR LITE COMES ON


the temperature sensor often causes symptoms such as this. it incorrectly tells the computer that the engine is cold and needs a rich mixture which results in black smoke and hard starts. another cause for such a condition is fuel injectors that are dribbling rather than atomizing fuel spray.

My blazzer just had the fuel pump replaced, and now it starts but won't stay running/ before the fuel pump went out it never had a problem starting / they told me that it might be the Map sensor, what are...


what year? a bad map sensor will cause rough running and sputtering and very bad smell like a rotten egg smell through the exhuast. try tapping on it lightly with a scewdriver when running or trying to start, if it acts up when tapping, that is the cause and very easy to replace. when the fuel pump was replaced, you need to replace the fuel filter. the filter clogging is almost always the cause of the pump going bad.

1997 Saturn SL1 very hard to start


jlwhelen,
I will suggest that perhaps the blue smoke is not purely oil. It sounds like you may have an ignition problem where the engine has a hard time firing until warmed. The blue smoke may be, at least in part, unspent fuel. I realize that a warm engine that uses oil will smoke blue, but excessively rich conditions on startup can result in a similar effect. If the choke circuit is delivering a little extra fuel from a dirty injector, the problem may be worse when starting from cold.
To remedy this, I would suggest a simple replacement of plugs and wires, as well as a fuel injector cleaner through the tank. I would bet money that these simple maintenance points would solve your problem.

Good luck!
Lucky
