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?
