Question about 1997 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

When I try to start the car, it will crank very strong, but the car will not start. It will sputter a little bit. On the second try it will start right up. The car will run fine. When you shut it down for 2 hours or more, it will do the same thing. What could be causing this?

I have a Hyundai Trajet 2002 Gasoline. I have a problem with keeping the engine alive.


The engine is running very rich that is why the exhaust is emitting black smoke. The engine needs a tune up so the air fuel mixture is correct.

Sounds like a vaccum problem, but I am not sure. It is not vapor locking on you is it? Maybe your fuel pump? A lot of possibilities.
