Fuel smell in air box is from trying to start it,,did you try spray starting fluid? Check your coil for wetness,,take it off and dry it real good,,,first see if you getting spark from coil.

It probably is flooded from trying to start it.Originally the the air tube probably was packed with snow so the engine wasn't drawing air in. If you turn the key on and push the gas pedal to the floor this should activate what is called clear flood mode.If it will not still start would suggest removing all the sparkplugs and cleaning or replacing them also make sure that the air induction tube is clear and dry.

Overheating 2000 hyundai elantra


Its possible the thermostat is stuck closed, but if there were true it should run for a few minutes before showing hot.
If it has set for an hour or two and still heats up in seconds, something is going on in the engine.

04 Kia Sorento stuck in 4WD Low


The 1st time my 04 Sorento got stuck in 4WD low it was towed to dealership & they claimed it was the switch. Six months later, while on a camping trip, got stuck again. The local tow truck driver saved me hundreds of dollars in towing costs. Put it in reverse for at least 10-20 feet. That's it! He said that he found this to be a common problem. I later asked my dealership why they failed to mention this solution to me. They replied that they thought I knew! Spread to word!
