Engine Performance problem
1986 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles
My car has a new starter, new spark-plugs, spark plug wires, a fully charged battery, and plenty of gas.
It turns over, and the rotor in the distributor spins when you crank the car. I've been told by AutoZone that this pretty much guarantees that the timing belt is fine. I do indeed get a spark through the spark plug wires (checked with a screwdriver). I can smell gas on the spark plugs after attempting to start the car.
This situation occured suddenly. I drove it home at 5:00 PM and when I went to start the car again at 7:00 PM it would not fire.
I think (but maybe it's my imagination) that I smell gas when I am cranking on it, fluttering the gas pedal, trying to start the car. What could it be?
have the same problem?
