    1999 Park Avenue..Sometimes it cranks, will not start and has strong fuel smell. I have to let it sit anywhere from 5 minutes to 3 hours before it will start. Also quits on me even when driving 55mph or sitting at light. I got the car last August and it did this a couple of times but didn't do it at all during winter. Now that it's warmer out it is doing it quite frequently.

If that has a 3.8 engine you should look at the fuel pressure regulator that is easy to see in the front part of engine on fuel rail. You will need to pull up the engine cover. Loosen the total oil filler, that is the cap and the piece the cap locks onto.Then the cover snaps off. Some of those regulators were plastic and leaked. Start the car after you have the cover off the engine and look for gas leaks. BE VERY CAREFUL GAS FUMES IGNITE EASILY.

    This will fix both problems? Sometimes when it won't start it takes anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hrs for it to start up. Have also been told to check recall on fuel problems with this model.

    Ok check your engine coolant temp sensor and oxyygen sensor... Both of them are sensors that can cause the issue....

Will a bad pick up coil stop a 1999 dodge Durango from cranking

After hot engine wont start and smells like gas


Most likely causes are bad engine coolant temp sensor OR leaking fuel injectors. Bad engine coolant temp sensor will give computer false reading and computer provides wrong air fuel mixture. Leaking fuel injectors will load the engine with raw gas--just like flooding it. Try pushing the gas pedal to the floor and holding it there when cranking when hot. That forces the computer into "clear flood" mode and it shuts off the injectors. If it starts up with pedal down, that would be a sign of leaking injectors.

p102 is your MAF sensor, check the harness connection or, clean the sensor itself-P0304 is a misfire on cylinder #4, that could be related to the MAF, but I would also consider a bad plug wire or maybe an injector problem.

My 1993 buick park ave stalls when stopped at red lights


When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires, ALL filters including FUEL filter? I'd start there, and run a good fuel system cleaner w/next tank full of fuel. In winter, with fluctuating temps, condensation (water) forms in fuel tank and spark plugs don't burn fuel/water efficiently causing stumbling and premature wear on your plugs.

electrical is the weakest link-you may have a computer with issues and before replacin a reprogram should be considered--what did vehicle scan tell you? Data recorders are often placed in cars that show no codes--Older cars can have solenoids and components that heat up and stop engine--if theres a distributer cap-inspec for corrosion
