When I go to start my car I now have to give it gas. And it is using a lot of gas as I am driving. What could be the problem?

Hello,

This sounds like a vacuum leak or the fuel pressure is low. We should run the codes though to see whats going on as well. Here are three guides to help us get started.

and

Please run down these guides and report back.

Cheers, Ken
