You probably fouled the sparkplugs. Change those and see if it starts ok.

Will bad knock sensor stop ignition from sparking?


I'm going way back into my alcohol erased memory on this one, but check your oil level sender. I ran into this problem many years ago and it seems like that was the culprit.

When you smelt fuel, It was flooded. Your best bet would be to replace the spark plugs. Gas will foul them out, just like oil.

G'day Just wondering how much oil i need to put in my Audi A4 B5 1.8L Non turbo 4 cyclinder, 1996 model. Cheers,


  • The 1.8L non turbo engine requires 3.4 quarts of 5 W 40 full synthetic (according to manufacturer specs) Always makes sure to start the vehicle after the oil change for a few seconds and shut it off, wipe the dipstick once and re-check the oil level it to make sure.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

SMOKING COMING FROM OIL SPILLED ON THE ENGINE AND MANIFOLD WHEN YOU CHANGED VALVE COVERS.OIL PROBABLY GOT IN PLUGS HOLES FOULING OUT PLUGS. SPRAY PLUGS WITH CARB CLEANER OR BRAKE CLEANER TO CLEAN THEM.DRY THEM. REINSTALL PLUGS BACK IN THE ENGINE.CLEAN OIL OFF ENGINE AND MANIFOLD SO IT WONT SMOKE. CRANK ENGINE SHOULD BE OKAY.

2002 BMW 325xi, doesn't start after oil change


It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.
