    Thanx friend but i found the problem. It was a lil rubber tube that connected the fuel lines, it was old and dry rotted.... caused pressure problems when starting my car. Im going to change it and if theres still a problem ill check out the top of my fuel tank.

I would check the fuel pressure. You may have a problem with the fuel pump relay or the one way valve in the pump.

When i first start the car it runs rough and when I take off it blows out a gray cloud from the exhaust and then runs fine and idles fine at lights and stop signs, Only a problem when I first start it


My 1997 cadillac deville started up rough for the first 15 seconds then the problem went away as I ran it. Also, it blew a cloud of sweet smelling fluid when I would shut it off hot and restart a few minutes later.It's a blown head gasket.

But, there is a $33 solution from Bar's Leaks that worked for me from Advance Auto. It's available at most reputable auto parts stores. If the leak is small enough it will seal.
