SOURCE: idle low then hi, and gas smell, and bad gas mileage

This should show up easily on the ECU diagnostics computer at a mercedes dealership. Basically your fuel mixture is way too rich causing your car to be heavy on gas, have a raw gasoline smell, and not run right. Something like this can be caused by a defective oxygen sensor (but that usually produces a check engine light) or it might even be a defective ECU. There is really not way of knowing for sure until you do a proper diagnostics where they hook up your exhaust at the same time and do an emmission test. In most cases it's some sensor that needs replacing.

SOURCE: have a 03 pt cruiser

The P0302 Code points to a misfire detected on the # 2 cylinder. If its stumbling, I would first suspect the plug or wire is bad. I believe the ignition coil on that vehicle is a single coil pack with four terminals, so if only the P0302 code is coming up I would start with the plug and wire. May be time to do a tune up and just replace all the splugs and spark plug wires.

Poor acceleration and low gas mileage,smells rich at idle


You are off to a good start, MAF when it is contaminated it leans the vehicle out it doesnt make the car run rich, depending on the fuel strategy of the year make and model,and of course the engine size make all the difference,bad ignition coil make a car run rich shorted 02 sensor that lean bias make the car run rich, worn timing belt ****** timing and causes the car to run rich.so lets hear the results

I'm getting poor fuel economy, 11mpg overall. I have the 3.9 with TBI, just replaced plugs and wires, cap and rotor are new also. Replaced air filter recently. Exhaust smells weird, like the engine runs...


Oxygen sensor. They tend to fail by sending the engine computer a steady lean reading. the computer then runs the TBI rich in order to compensate for the false lean condition.

Also, the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. If it fails and shows the engine to be ice cold when it is really warm, the computer will schedule lots of fuel.

Intake Air Temperature sensor. same result as ECT above. Computer sees nothing but cold dense air all the time and schedules more fuel.

1987 Isuzu pick up 2.3 . Carburetor runs much to rich. My gas mileage has gone from 27 mpg to 17 mpg. You are also able to smell the fumes due to the carb. not running properly.


It's either a stuck float or the choke is staying closed. If you're smelling gas, then it's probably the float. You need to rebuild the carb.
