Alright, My 93 Eagle Vision TSi sometimes won't want to turn over. I think it's because it's not getting gas because I can get it to start up after pumping on the gas for a few seconds. Once I get it started up, when I back up I have a gas smell coming from the car. What could be doing this? Could it be my fuel injector or something else?
Alright, I used some fuel injector cleaner a few months ago after my last oil change. Would it be a good idea to keep using it? And i could get a garage to look at it. I had my fuel line replaced so i didn't think it was that where my smell was coming from.
I've had the car since late July and I have had the problem since then. I've had a tune up done on the car and the fuel line replaced. Not sure what was done before it. I'm planning on getting a carfax to see what the 26 previous reports were on it.
Here is what it looks like (generic picture) when removed - that cone goes in and out to provide air to the engine when your foot isn't on the gas... if that cone is stuck out, then the engine has too much air, and you have to compensate by holding down the gas pedal to increase the gas you get (and air too, so it is a vicious cycle).
Once removed, it can be cleaned with spray solvent, or a solvent and toothbrush, etc.
BUT - it might be that it is not moving when power is applied, and it is stuck. That needs replacement.
