Sounds flooded. Let it sit awhile and when you go to start it hold pedal to the floor. You might also have vehicle nearby for jump start, cranking flooded engine can wear on battery

Crank but no start after timing and water pump strong gas smell from plenum on right side i believe


double check your timing setup again. http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/KALAMYKID/2011-01-31_054854_timing_marks.jpg

They have to be dead on. it sounds to me that its putting in fuel after the spark.which also makes me think timing. Putting the belt on counterclockwise is important too.

Maybe have someone crank it with a plug out and see if the plug sparks when the piston is right past TDC. Unplug the fuel injector or unscrew it and hang it in an empty bottle to make sure its spraying fuel at the right time.

One of those is out of sync from what youre describing.

1987 5.0 mustang turns over got spark doesnt start tones of gas in cyllenders timing is set still wont start. took plugs out and there soaked with fuel got spark and still does not run


you're a victim of a flooded engine. if it's got fuel injection then crank it with the gas pedal fully depressed; that's called a clear flood mode that shuts down the injectors while cranking to give the plugs a chance to dry off. if it's got a carburetor then you'll have to take the plugs out and dry them off manually. in either case you should pull out the oil dipstick and smell it; if it smells strongly of gas you should change the oil to avoid bearing failure because the oil has gas in it and is too thin to lubricate. I usually take out the plugs and either blow them dry with a compressor or put them on a hot plate to warm them up so if there is any gas in the cylinders it will ignite faster. while they are heating up I blow the cylinders with compressed air to eliminate any accumulated fuel in the cyl. before I put the plugs back in. make sure the choke is open and crank it with the gas pedal fully depressed for about 5-10 seconds and then release the gas pedal. It should start.

Will not start appears no gas


The most common reason a car will crank but not start and you smell gas is you flooded it. Too much gas to the engine causes too rich a fuel mixture and the fuel won't ignite.Click this link below for more troubleshooting :---http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2012/01/car-will-not-start-and-smells-like-gas.html

2003 ford taurus 3.0 Vulcan cranks strong, you can smell the gas but it won't start. I tried replacing the ignition coil with no results.


It is one of two things. Crank shaft sensor, on timing cover, behind crank pulley. Or the camshaft syncronizer, or the camshaft sensor (sits on top of Camshaft syncronizer) Located on drivers side end of engine, in what used to be the home of the old type distributor.

1994 Mercury Cougar 4.6, hard start, miss, gas smell


This is an idea not a for sure. Bad or worn valves can cause what you describe. Had something similar happen to an 2004 Toyota. Due to bad lubrication, crazy huh?

1999 Firebird cranking problem


well first the white smoke indicateds water in fuel system. if you have a strong fuel smell that would indicated that your getting way too much fuel. there are several reasons for this. it could be that the fuel pressure regulater is malfunctiong. the throttle position sensor is bad. it could also be a timing issue.
