Question about 1999 Pontiac Firebird
Engine cranked as normal and died, unaware for about two minutes that it had died. Tried to recrank and it did then went dead, strong gas smell. Let sit and repeated same results. After 4 or 5 tryies white smoke came out tail pipe and extreme gas smell. Any suggestions?
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.
