    the last week my car was loosing power and suddenly the running lights would not go off after turning ignition off. I went into the store for a few minutes with the light on came back to start it and it rotated but no fire, then it fired on the second try it drove for about 100 feet then stalled then I tied to start it again then the battery went dead. I jumped it it fired and ran good for about 2 miles then it just lost fire and died. I pulled over and tried to start again the battery was dead again. Then I got some assistant by a mobile mechanic he ran a computer check on the car and said the charging system and battery was not working properly. I went home to charge it it ran then did the same thing but now it dont fire when the engine is running and becomes hot.when it cools down it starts. I started the car and took off the battery terminals and the engine still was running.

It could be vapor locking if you drive for a while then it acts like it is running out of gas. this is caused by the fuel vaporizing before it gets to te carburator. Check the fuel lines for placement close to a heat source like the exaust, Also, the problem could be the fuel pump, you can have a pressure check done to see if the pressure is up to specks.

Car smells like gas and has trouble starting


This sounds like your evaporative emissions system acting up. Has the check engine light come on? There should be a charcoal cannister that filters the vented air/fumes from the fuel tank. If a vacuum or vapor line is broken, or removed.. or if the charcoal canister is depleted, you'll get the gas smell.
