1991 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

The car has always had a rough idle. Recently it became much rougher and now will not start and stay running. When it does start, it backfires often and misfires; strong smell of gasoline. What might be the problem?

Engine running rough or misfiring can be cause by the following-inspect and test all the following listed below:
1. Defective spark plug.
2. Inadequate spark/coil, defective spark plug wire.
3. Lack of compression
4. False air leakage.
5. Faulty fuel injectors.
6. Insufficient fuel pressure.
7. Contaminated fuel.
8. EGR valve that is leaking.
