I tried what you suggested this morning. I turned the car over and it was cranking and tried to start but then died so tried what you said and that didn't work. Usually if it doesn't start the first time, I try again and it starts but if the second time doesn't work then when I turn it over again I push on the gas pedal and it starts right up.
I've noticed that when it doesn't start the first time and I have to either try a second or third time, after it starts the engine revs up and down right around the 1000 rpm mark a couple times until it settles at a little under 1000 rpms and there is a very distinct smell. The smell is hard to describe, if I had to say a kind of fluid it smells like it would be gasoline but it's a sour, unpleasent smell. Not sure if that sparks any ideas in your head but I thought I'd let you know!
Thanks again for the advice! I appreciate what you guys are doing on here!
