Answer 2
Check your fuel filter. If it has a hole anywhere in near the fuel filter it will not have enough compression to shoot the gas to your cylinders and create the spark you need to start your car. I had the same problem with my 1991 Olds Cutlass Ciera S. All it was is the rubber hose that connects the fuel filter to the gas tank had a hole in it. Check and make sure all the lines are hole free. If it is the rubber hose that connects the fuel filter to the gas tank go to your local hardware store and pick up the 3-6 inch rubber hose that is required for 35cents. Becareful your dealing with the fuel line, and one spark could set this project ablaze. ~Tim -
Answer 3
if your oil smells like fuel then your getting way to much fuel.try a fuel pressure regulator or have your fuel pressure checked on the fuel rail.also after turning it over check to see if the spark plugs are wet wiyh fuel maybe fuel fouled -

Answer 4
possible bad fuel pressure regulature. 3100?,when they leak they pass alot of fuel though the vacuum hose to the regulator.possible fouled plugs. pull a couple of plugs to see if thy are gas fouled. -
