What would cause 93 chevy c1500 rough idle smells of excess gas at exhaust


Does the truck seem fine when you first start it & then acts up when it reaches operating temp?
That would lead me to look at my oxygen sensor, a bad sensor can cause the truck to run "rich" which would explain the fuel smell in the exhaust.

Van running like its missing


the problem is not in the plugs , wires , cap , rotor but in dirty injectors or injector controls and wires
use a quality injector cleaner for a few tanks of fuel
ECM controlled cars do not a tune up as the computer does that 60 times a minute so all you need to do is to run the fault codes and fix the faulty sensors
fault codes are being recorded all the time and only the serious engine or transmission faults put the engine light on

5 years ago for cap & rotor???? It sounds like it's in dire need of a complete tune up - plugs. wires, cap, rotor, all fluids & filters ESPECIALLY fuel filter. I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it. Do your tune ups more frequently like every 30K - not wait 5 years!

Why is my 87 ford f-150 missing out


Normally and if you are lucky, replacing the plugs will fix it. If you don't know when its had its last tuneup, giving it a complete tune up on that year car would be recommended) (replacing the plugs wires, distributor cap, rotor, fuel filter,air filter, pcv valve and go all the way and change the oil and filter.) (tip) Old plug wires break easy when removing them from the plugs.

Normal tune-up, includes?


YEARS AGO A NORMAL TUNE UP WOULD BE SPARK PLUGS, WIRES, ROTOR, CAP

NOW DAY SHOULD BE THE SAME THING BUT THEY ONLY REOLACE THE PLUGS AND WIRES THAT ARE SHOWN TO BE BAD OR WEAK THRU THE DIAGNOSTICS EVERY REPAIR SHOP IS NOT THE SAME
WITH THE TUNE UP THEY SHOULD REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER AND AIR FILTER, DEPENDS ON WHAT THE DIAGNOSTICS MACHINE SHOWS
