This could be many problems. Defective idle air control valve, dirty plugs, defective plug wires, distributors, timing, fuel injectors, moisture in gas tank, clogged fuel filter. Suggest you purchase a manual for the year of the automobile. Then start by trouble shooting one thing at a time. Could also be a short in the alternator.

My 2002 Cadillac DeVille smells like gas when trying to start it.


If the smell is coming from the front under the hood area, have the fuel system checked for leaks. Possible injector/seal or fuel pressure regulator leak. Check for any emission hose/s disconnected as well under the hood that may supply fumes to the engine

sometimes if a fuel pressure regulator goes bad , you will be able to smell fuel fumes under hood. a leaking pressure regulator will cause---hard starting, poor fuel economy, stalling, check engine light, gas smell under hood. also check all fuel lines under hood.

Burning smell,check engine light-misfire, rough idle 96 cavalier


Sounds like there is a blown piston, to be sure have a compression test done on that #2 cylinder, if the reading is low, then you'll know.
A friend of mine had a 95 that did simular things only a little more,
it started smoking, dash lights flickered, etc. Finally, he had to get rid of it, the piston rod went through the engine block.

2005 chevy cobalt check engine light


make sure the gas cap is on tight. vapor recovery system depends on the closure of the gas cap. if that did not solve your problem, I would suggest to get a new gas cap first, before going to the dealer or any repair shop for a turn-up.

1999 chevy blazer starts, but makes noise and no acceleration


Smoke coming out from the middle of the two rear tires right? Sound like your rear differential is out of lubricant. Leftover lubricant is probably getting burned by heat from the friction. Have your rear differential lubed up.
