Misfire smell like firecracker


The smell is way to much fuel in the exhaust and the catalytic converter is overwhelmed, it will overheat and quite possibly start the truck on fire if you don't fix the over fueling problem.

Could a faulty fuel pump make your tach start bouncing lower suddenly and run rough than not want to start. Spray some starter fluid and fires up runs fine sometimes.


It sounds like you may have gotten a little water in your gas. Or sometimes if you run an older model car out of gas or real darn close to empty you can get dirt and debris that lies on the bottom of your gas tank sucked into your injectors. I would first try buying a high quality fuel treatment from the auto parts store and adding it to the gas tank during your next fill up. Also check and see if it's time to replace the spark plugs and plug wires.

SC2 car cranks and starts sometimes.put new plugs and wires and noticed oil on the 3 and 4 plug. Car once started with some starting flluid runs fine. and will restart. weather is getting cooler 20 degrees...


A common problem with the 90's engines was the ECTS (electronic coolant temperature sensor) going bad. Seems when attempting to start the car, the computer in the car will only allow enough gas it thinks is needed to start. When a car is cold, the computer gives more gas initially, until the engine warms up, then gives less gas. When starting a warm engine, less gas is needed.

If the sensor goes bad, it always tells the computer that the engine is hot. The computer give less gas to a cold engine, and sometimes it will start, sometimes not. Its a pretty cheap part, and a do it yourself one, just research it a bit on line...good luck

If you pull the aircleaner off and watch the throttle body injectors they dont have anything coming out?
Double check the map sensor and the throttle position sensor?
Computer? I wonder if a wire to the computer has shorted out to ground.
