After hot engine wont start and smells like gas


Most likely causes are bad engine coolant temp sensor OR leaking fuel injectors. Bad engine coolant temp sensor will give computer false reading and computer provides wrong air fuel mixture. Leaking fuel injectors will load the engine with raw gas--just like flooding it. Try pushing the gas pedal to the floor and holding it there when cranking when hot. That forces the computer into "clear flood" mode and it shuts off the injectors. If it starts up with pedal down, that would be a sign of leaking injectors.

Acts like it is out of gas. wont start


Get a can of spray starting fluid from any parts store or hardware store, spray it into the intake of the engine and see if it starts and quickly dies out, if so you have no fuel delivery, most common reason is a defective fuel pump, this is esp true on high mileage cars and trucks.

The " white cloud " from the exhaust sounds like antifreeze in the combustion chamber. What engine is in it? Does it turn over when you try to start it? Did the "white cloud" have a sweet smell to it?

It sounds to me like you have a big vacum leak in the intake or injection port. You can spray starting flud or carb cleaner around everything while its running when it speeds up you found the leak. You must be un pluging the map sensor vacum.

Durango starts sometimes. then acts like its getting no gas and dies. if i stomp on gas it will keep running till i let off. bad gas ? fuel filter ? fuel pump?


I would suggest starting with the less expensive solutions first. If you pull the air intake hose off the throttle body and open the throttle with the engine off look down inside if it is black try spraying it out with throttle body cleaner make sure to spray it out good. Afterwards start it you may have to keep your foot on the gas for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't stall then take your foot off the gas pedal and see if it stays running if it does your throttle body just needed cleaned. Note do not use carb cleaner use throttle body cleaner only, carb cleaner can damage the sensor in your throttle body.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.

Bad excelleration. Dies when let up on gas.


Pull your IAC (Idle air control) off and spray clean it & the port it came out of with throttle body cleaner. Spray pintle (pointed part) good and clean, then re-install & try it. If it's cured & starts to act up again later, replace it.
Should be mounted near front of throttle body, on side.

Car cuts cuts off then won't start 1984 Camaro Berlinetta


Sounds like a fuel pump. What engine do you have? Carb or Fuel injection? I know you said you spray carb cleaner in the carb but a throttle body kind of looks like a carb. The first thing I would try would be a fuel filter. 1984 camaro right?

1996 Dodge Ram 1500 won't idle


First thing I'd do is remove idle speed motor, or idle air control, same thing, different names. remove wire connector, remove motor, and get some throttle body spray cleaner, and spray shaft & tip of motor well & clean it all up, as well as spray in to port (hole) that it came out of. Re-install & try that. They are pretty common problem. If it cure it for a while, then starts to act up again, replace it, and clean port well before installing new one. here's a link to give you an idea of what your looking for, click on pictures to expand them.
