My 2005 Nissan Altima will not turn over. It smells of gas & the spark plugs are wet. After it has been dried, it will start most of the time.

Sounds like a leaking pressure regulator, since one bad injector would only flood one cylinder.
Is it always getting spark to the plugs ? Keep in mind, once the plugs are fuel fouled they are easily fouled again.

My 1985 Olds Cutlass won't start and a get a strong odour of gasoline.

First check for fuel leaks. Be safe. Next I would pull the spark plugs and smell them for gas. If you smell gas on them, they are fouled out. Start with replacing them. Also check for spark. These are the two basics to check first. Spark and fuel. You have fuel because you can smell it.

Why is my fuel mixing with oil

I'm afraid your Subaru has burnt a valve. Typically it is the right rear cylinder (looking at it from the front of the car) that burns them. this is a common problem. It's an expensive fix. There is a chance however, it may just be a fouled spark plug. Again, it's usually the right rear spark plug that fouls. You can pull each plug wire one at a time (start with the right rear one) until you find one that doesn't make the engine run worse. Then change that plug and try it. Or replace all the plugs. If one is fouled then the others may also need changing.

Truck starts but stops immediately and smoke comin out of my tailpipe

Well it depends on the color of smoke if it's WHITE; it could be a blown head gasket (check coolant levels and then oil to see if it is milky looking) BLUE: could be burning oil, which could result to fouling plugs (check spark plugs for fouling) BLACK; too much fuel flooded (check spark plugs for fouling)

I have a 1994 Chevy C1500 w/ 4.3 liter and my plugs are fouling out about every 500 miles or less and everything else maintanence wise I've replaced resently. Can someone give an idea on what need

Does the truck run right? Does it smell real gassy, fuel mileage go south? If it is fouling plugs that fast it either has to be burning a lot of fuel or oil. Is there a check engine light on? Engine wore out, burning a lot of oil. Fuel injector stuck, using a lot of gas. Air filter dirty, making it burn way rich. I would think this truck would really smell bad if it is fouling out the plugs that fast.

Car seems to be flooded, smell gas and ignition just whirs when trying to start, how long do I need to wait before trying to start again?

I wouldnt start it again till you check the fuel lines for leaks(dont want to burn it up) I then suggest you look for vacuum leaks & do a compression test.pull spark plugs & look for oil fouled spark plugs &smell & observe for signs of raw gas.keep posted

Car will not start battery was checked and is ok. I pulled the plugs they are not fouled and I smell gas on them.

If it's turning over ok, the next thing would be to see whether or not spark is getting to the plugs, Use a timing light while cranking or let one of the plug wires arc a spark to the engine block while cranking

87 toyota pickup engine wont idle well and exhaust smells gassy

Well if you start your car and its dieing at a stop sign. That usually means you have a bad alternator. Your alternator is wat charges the battery when the car is on, and the more you eccelerate the car, the faster the belt spends on the alternator and the more juice is pumped to the battery. So I would have your alternator checked out. Im pretty sure thats why your stopping at stop signs. As far as the smoke and the smells gassy. You have t remember its an older carborated truck, so its going to smoke out of the exaust and its going to run a little rich, which is why your smelling gas. Now you much determine if its smoking to much and your smelling to much gas. Try having a tune up done on the truck. Spark plugs, oil change, air filter change and if your still having those issues take it to a muffler shop and have them check the catalic converter
