Last Saturday I just replaced the distributor, recently a new distributor cap, spark plugs and today a new battery. The car just stopped while I was driving and long story short...I was told to get new distributor. Since that it has been running hard (vibrating) and hard to start. This morning it didn't start at all so I got the new battery. The day before I filled up almost full with gas and today it is almost empty and I haven't driven anywhere except to and from work. Could it be losing gas now? and if so, how and what need to be done to correct this? I also smell a funny smell which was after the repair. Thanks

I would recheck your work. You may have crossed a spark plug wire when you replaced the distributor. It is easy to do, I have done it myself.

Either it is leaking gas somewhere or the gas gauge might be going out?
