Sounds like it is getting plenty of gas. First off check to see if the fuel regulator is bad either with a pressure gauge or pull the vacume line off and see if gas is seeping out, if it is theres your problem. Replace it. Pull out the plugs and let it set overnight and evaporate the gas in the cylinders. In that time get the battery to full charge. Put new plugs in it and it should start. Do not drive the car with all of that gas in the oil. It will wash the bearings and ruin the engine. CHANGE THE OIL AND FILTER. This is just a start and most common problem with these

The basics start there. Fuel and fire.. Do you smell gas coming from the tail pipe when you try to start. Check for fire. What is the car doing, does it turn over?

Have your mass air flow sensor cleaned/serviced., then your catylictic coverter.you can chk but takes two people. one at the tailpe and the other at the key. The moment the engine is turned of, the exhaust shout stop.Using a tissue see if the exhaust continues bet in a drifting manner. Note any odor of rotten egg or sulphur smells. Listen for ant wheezing coming from the tail pipe while the engine is running. This is rhe more probable cause. Good luck -Ned

White smoke coming from exhaust, smells like gas


Check the fuel pressure regulator. It should have a vacuum line attached to it - disconnect the vacuum line and turn the ignition on - if fuel come out then that's your problem. DON"T do this while the engine is hot or you could start a fire!
