I live in the desert and my 1988 mr2 works fine during the winter and fall months. But when the weather gets hot it pings a lot and stalls after the engine gets hot. I have to keep giving it gas to get it to move. Once I have driven about a mile it acts normal.

Problems excessive pinging and the smell of fuel when I stop.

Do you

Check to make sure your timing is ok and check fuelpressure. Scan for codes.
