2000 pontiac sunfire 2.2 car was running great. Shut it off, really hard to start. Had to hold gas to floor, would chug for a few seconds then take off & run great. Now it turns over, smells like it is flooding, backfires a little through intake.
Car was cranking & running great. Last night shut the car off for about 2 hours, went to re-start vehicle to use it, had to hold gas pedal to floor & when it finally caught, it chugged for about 30 seconds before it finally started running. Idle is smooth, no miss & once it is running it runs great.
Went to start it this morning. Turned car over, it tries to catch after about a minute of cranking, smells strongly of gasoline, back fires through the intake, still wont run.
HELP ME PLEASE : -)
