I have a 96 tahoe we just changed the distributor thinking it was the cause but we still have a bad gas smell when starting and have trouble cranking after its warmed up. When you first start it for the day it starts no prob but after it warms up have to crank it multiple times to start it. My dad said it sounds out of time but the timing has been checked several times and its good. Any ideas?

  • Fuel smell indicates a fuel leak somewhere. My guess is leaky fuel distribution spider under intake manifold. $$$$. How many miles on odometer? – zipzit Apr 10 at 21:56
