Car sometimes won't start. If you push gas pedal to floor, it will start. Could it be losing fuel pressure?
Fuel pump or pressure regulator?
Any help would be helpful!
If I took it to a shop with a analyzer, could they tell me what it could be?
Thanks,
Ken

Is the check engine light on?

Do this and count the flashes...Count the flashes, a 22 will flash as 2 flashes then a short pause, then 2 flashes, if more than one code is stored, the pause will be longer. The codes will display three times and end with 11 or 111. Write them down and post here. First do this with the ke on engine off, then again with it running.

Light doesn't stay on and it isn't flashing. You can smell fuel, like it's getting to much, but I can't see any leak

You smell extra fuel because it's not starting, and your key is in the crank position. Try reading the codes as described, many are stored codes and dont show up until you do both tests. test fuel pump pressure, If it won't restart, determine what's missing, the engine needs three things to run, Spark at all plugs, gas to all cylinders, and compression in all cylinders, tho an engine may run lacking one in one cylinder, it won't run very well!
