My car had stopped working. I charged the battery got it going for three days, it stopped working again. I tried to charge the battery, but it would not hold a charge. I purchased a new batery and it still had a hard time starting the car. I gave it a good kick of gas and it turned on. Tested the starter and alternator no problem there, service light went off. The car did good for a week and now will not start again. I look online and was given several possibilities of what it could be, spark plugs, fuel pump, or head gasket. Here is what happens wen I try to start car; It sounds like it wants to kick over all lights and stereo work fine, the battery is only a week old. After about the third try of starting car it smells like gas, I could be flooding it. A friend said it could be valve cover leaking oil to spark plugs, but really I feel like we are playing a guessing game as to what is wrong with it and I have no idea what to fix. The service light never turned back on so I have no way of checking it. Can you please help me figure this out? Thank you.
