Run a compression test. Sounds like a bad head gasket, letting coolant into the cylinder and causing misfire. I think you will find one (or two adjacent) cylinders have much lower compression than the others. There should not be more than 20% difference from highest to lowest.

    Thanks much but changed plugs and actually ran smoother after that, although eng light stays own. Radiator fluid is constant and eng temp stays normal to slightly lower. in 95-100 deg heat I would expect a head gasket with rad fluid to cause higher temps. Thanks alot though.

White smoke and foam in the gas tank indicates antifreeze leaking into the engine somewhere. Do you smell antifreeze? You may have an engine seal leaking, most likely head gasket. It may be affecting the various engine sensors.

My guess would be injector control circuits failed. Or perhaps you got some bad gas which gummed up your injectors. If that is the case, the injectors cannot shut the fuel flow off, for the same reason you cannot completely closed a door if your foot is in the way. It is possible but unlikely, that a computer glitch got the engine computer out of kilter, which can often be corrected by disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes, then reconnecting it. In that case, the computer will go back to original settings programmed in a ROM (Read Only Memory). Good luck!

Your car is running extremely rich and the smell you are experiencing is raw fuel in the catalyst. If you keep driving this way the cat will clog and need replacing. You probably have one or more defective ignition coils, or you coil driver stage has gone bad (mounted inside the air cleaner housing)

My 2005 sonata starts after trying several times. It just turns over like a car out of gas, then usually on the third time it will start.


Sounds like its either fuel or ignition. Have someone turn the car over while you sniff the exhaust.
If it smells of raw unburnt gas , fuel is not the issue , your problem is most likely ingition. Car might run rough at first when it does start , due to being slightly flooded.
If no gas smell probably a fuel problem. Possible low fuel pressure , or no fuel injection.

When i start my car you smell gas ,and it smoke.


HTML clipboard If you can smell gas ONLY when the engine is running, then the gas didn't get burned completely. It could be the combination of the computer, oxygen sensors, and/or catalytic converter is going bad. If you could smell gas when it's parked, you might want to take it to a mechanic to have your gas line checked for leaks and for pressure test. Here's a website that talk a little about gas smell www.mycarsmellsbad.com good luck.

ROUGH IDLE,WET SPARKPLUGS,KILLS


The Symptoms tell me it is a head gasket. A leaky or bad head gasket would cause all of the problems that you mentioned.

Burning water causes White Smoke, Burning Oil causes Black Smoke. The oil and water are mixing with the gas in the cylinders and causing it to run bad. Pull out the dipstick and look at the oil on it. Does it look like good oil? Or does it look watery and or foamy or grey colored. Open up the radiator and look inside, do you see oil?

This seems almost text book to me... I would have someone local to you to have a look at it to be sure.
