Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
i would start the car in the morning, itd run fine. the second time id go out to start it however, id have to pump the gas pedal several times while turning the key in order for it to start. i was driving up a hill the other day and the car stalled out and quit. i havent been able to get it to start since. also believed i may have flooded the engine because i smelled a little gas with the oil. let sit for the last week and still wont start. it has new spark plugs and wires, a fresh tune-up, a new fuel filter as of 6 months ago, oil is good. no engine lights are on. what could be making this happen? ive been told the fuel pump? the car has 140xxx on it. any answers would be great!
