If you are backfiring you should check your firing order... If you have had your Plugs and wires replaced recently then it may have been installed wrong.. also try changing your fuel filter.. or changing the spark plugs

I have a 03 Hyundai Tiburon it want fire the battery went dead I replaced it it turns over fine but it want start no fire what could be the problem

assuming a lot , try some things
look up the crank sensor it all starts there.
how to test it depends on even more ,
try simple things 1st
open gas cap to release pressure
put in new gas
smell the exhaust , does it have any gas smell
smell the oil an look at it , has gas or water in it or very dirty.
smell the transmission fluid for burning smell , <just for info
see that it has spark , listen to them on the am radio static or pull one an let it spark to ground. use a screwdriver. stick you finger up it replaced battery means it might have died in a zap. check the fuses.
check for aux power wire fuses .
open the air filter and spray in 1oz fuel only to see if it changes at all ,not to start it ..

Smelling raw gas in the vents and outside the car 97 geo metro could it be the Egr valve

No- you have a fuel leak be very carefull-a spark could set it on fire-open the hood have someone turn the key on this will make the fuel pump run and you should be able to see dripping fuel somewhere-cheers Denny

Engine turns over but will not fire

Don't know why you would expect to smell gas

Could be the fuel pump

Engine back fires and has gas smell in oil

Sounds like a leaking or stuck open fuel injector might be allowing gas to leak down into the crankcase, thinning the oil.

My 97 lasabre periodically stops running at any speed or even stopped. It will not start back up until a few minutes later. It will turn over but not fire off. sometimes it take 10 minutes and sometimes it...

when the problem is happening, you need to check to see if you've lost spark or fuel. when you try to restart the car,can you smell gas? if you can,you need to pull off a spark plug wire and put a screwdriver into the end of the wire. set it down 1/4" or so from a metal ground. have someone crank the engine, see if there is a nice strong spark. if so, you're fuel pump is probably faulty. it's inside the gas tank

Car will not start bu,t will turn over can smell gas and ,it want to start more if the pedel is to the floor

sounds like its not firing right possible its your coil pack when you smell gas that means its flooded you might as well wait a while when you smell gas like that before you turn it over more but it could also be one more thing it could be you have a gas leak and its not getting enough gas but thats a slim chance

Gas smell in 97 q45

You need to bring the vehicle back to the garage that worked on it asap and have them check it out. It sounds like they are responsible since the gas fumes started when the fuel was changed. Most are inside the gas tank. There is a lock ring on the tank w/ a gasket that must be removed for access. Chances are they either didn't tighten the lock ring sufficiently, or the gasket is crimped or out of place, allowing the fumes to escape. Leave the car outside until you bring it to the garage, as fumes can collect if parked inside and cause an explosion it a spark is present-like turning on a light switch or starting the car. If the reason for the fumes is as I described, the garage should fix it at no extra charge to you.

My 95 cavailer just starting having a problem. motor jolts, has loss of power climbling a hill misfires , engine doesnt die it will start right up but runs poorly also can smell a odor not sure if its gas...

I would check to make sure your spark plug wires are not coming loose from the coil packs on the back of the engine, i had the same problem with a '97 cavalier and then the check engine light started to flash meaning it had a catalyst threatening mis-fire.

also check to make sure you have the correct order, these things will run with the wires mixed up but they are gutless.

a new fuel filter might not hurt either, they are easy to change located near the back axle, one nut and a quick connect fitting.
