Try cutting back the fuel intake. There should be a screw close to where the fuel line enters the carb. If there is a fuel injector It could be a few different places. GoodLuck And PEACE

Problems starting!After several attemps it starts for a second then ded again after several more attemps it starts and then runs OK! Whats the problem?

Hi Conny:
I'd start by looking at the fuel delivery system.
Injectors or carb?
Sounds like it's not getting gas.
Make sure the carb is clean, automatic choke working.
Fuel pump doing its job?

1992 Lexus sc300 has antifreeze colored smoke with gas odor # 3 cyl wet with gas HELP!!!

certainly sounds like a leaking cylinder head gasket. Try the coolant pressure test with a hot engine. Heat makes gaps expand.

A/c smells funny it seems like the clutch is out

Is system blowing cold air? if low gas system will blow warm and smell, When was the cabin filter last replaced, the cabin filter is used for inside air, make sure its clean,

I would start by having the system checked to make sure the gas is full and dye added so if system goes warm again the dye will show the leak.

Gas ascape

Take note if after you have the refrigerant recharged, if there is an unpleasant odor inside the car after a few minutes or a few hours (with the windows up). If so, your refrigerant leak is probably in the evaporator coil behind the dashboard. If you do not notice any odor after recharging the A/C, then add some leak-detecting dye with the freon charge to see if you can tell where the leak is.

2004 dodge intrepid w/a 2.7. Check engine light came on and the engine started shuttering a mile away from home. Limped her home, and figured it was the cam shaft position sensor. (Had same symptoms in...

could be the T.P.S. sensor(throttle position sensor). It would be worth the money to have a free scan done by an auto parts store, as there are too many electrical problems that can happen, I.A.C. , M.A.P. and O2 sensors, also check to see if all the spark plugs are getting spark, if a plug isnt firing, then it will stutter lose power and could cause the gas odor because its not burning the fuel in that cylinder before it is exhausted.

could be corroded gas lines or gas tank,the carbon cannister or leaking injectors and or if you have a tendancy to fill your tank more at the gas pump to the rim of the filler cap the filler neck that connects to the gas tank by means of a rubber seal may be ruptured. check for gas leaks under the car and in the engine bay,first with the car running and then with the car,s engine shut down and around the filler could be as simple as having to replace your gas cap. good luck.
