I have this 95 Tercel with quite some mileage but was running perfectly before. This! First I thought rain / humidity didn't help but same problem after 2 hot sunny days. I need to hit the gas pedal once or twice to get the motor going. Idle the motor just dies but If accelerating the motor runs fine but you can smell the gas burning up and a smoke build out the exhaust.
I was told the Oxygen Sensor was defective which I plan to replace but any other ideas? The car was parked for 2-3 months, was running fine before but now this problem is persistent.
have the same problem?
