take the air cleaner out and try it. probably needs injectors, not a spring chicken anymore.

My toyota camry 220sei does not start. battery fully charged, enough fuel. the engine swings but it does on and running. sometines I can smell petrol, however I can't see any petrol around the engine.

cranks but will not start, clear as day, (few are) and floods.
no year, stated. not that makes this so very hard,
220sei? what is that? are you trying to say XV20?
no engine stated, nor country.
so i spin the wheel if fortune and land, 1996, XV20
and USA< and 3.0 L 1MZ-FE V6 engine.

  1. fuses good, ? "tested"
  2. keyon CEL lamp in cluster glows, if not PCM has no power. or lamp bad, fix that.
  3. connect scan tool crank for 5seconds, oh my gosh the PCM knows what's bad.? 1987 to now at least, all cars. so it says cam, crank sensors. or spark is bad.? DTC errors??????
  4. did you check for spark on all 6 cylinders, (do that tuneup now?, long forgot for 10 years?)
  5. eg: i got spark but timing is off, cam drive slipped, is why. omg , I fail edto do my timing belt service, if car has VVT boom you bent all the valves, many for sure. or just one bank. non VVT this does not happen,,3LV6
  6. ok , i checked compression, all are over 150, I now have spark and it still floods. so i Pull the fuel pump relay. and clear the flood and try test fuel it runs great for 3 second, cool !
  7. i then diagnose flooding, causes. (leaking injectors or too high fuel pressure.) and more. lots ,more but ILL stop, as fueling tests are long and tedious. (can show all)

My Polo Classic 2004 1.6 is misfiring. There is a smell of petrol and the car is not accelerating rapidly.

Check carefully for fuel leak. If it starts well and then gets worse as it warms up, check coolant temp sensor. May be it just smells like fuel because it misses so badly fuel is not being burnt and floods tailpipe. Check spark at plugs with timing light to avoid sparks where fuel may be present. Weak or irratic spark can be coil/module, crank/cam sensor. Remove plugs to see what they look like or which is not firing.

My 1990 ford laser 1.6 struggles to start or will not start on a hot day but will start fine any other time, it also smells of petrol while trying to start, ive replaced the starter motor and put a larger...

Hi is it a fuel injection model or carb? If it is a carb model, I have found the auto choke gets stuck. This will make it start fine in cooler weather but floods the engine on warmer days or if the engine is hot.

Could be a whole gambit of problems

1) Check the HT system is good, contacts clean, good spark on the plugs.
2) Check the water temperature sensor.

Eengine wont start has gas and spark?

Does it sound like its spinning or turning faster than normal? If so could just be flooded. Try cranking engine with excellerator 3/4 way down at 10 sec intervals with 2 min brake in between. These cars have always seemed to flood easy. And the air intake system is so enclosed it cant really dry out easy. I try that 3-4 times if it does seem like its trying to start or getting better than Id say tow to mechanic. Possible coil problems too? But seen alot of them flood out.
