Over the past month my car has been needing a little extra loving to start. Occasionally you can start it easily without pressing the gas but rarely. It cranks for approx 5-10 seconds before it starts and immediately begins to shake and the smell of exhaust is DISGUSTING! I recently replaced all of the fuel injectors and had them tested before putting them in, but that is about the time i started having these problems. On top of this it's misfiring on the fourth cylinder and and only going about 2/3 as far on a tank. I use fuel injector cleaner and this has done a minimal amount of benefit. I'm a poor student and am wondering if you know what the source of my problem could be and if so is it worth it to fix?
So i believe my car is misfiring due to a faulty fuel injector...how horrible is it to continue driving it?
my 95 sunfire has ran like a dream since i got it 6 months ago. last week i noticed a fuel injector leaking so i quickly replaced it and now it starts hard, shake, makes moaning noises when i accelerate, has a burning smell ( smells like a belt), and i'm now getting 150km LESS per tank. it has 220 000km
