my astra has been stood up for a while now, so i decided to start it up, but it just would not start instead it just stank of petrol
i finally did get it going and it was running like a tractor it sounded as though it was only running on three cylinders, it just sounds like its only just able to tick over
also when i tried to give it some gas to help it tick over it kept going to die out? if i were to put my foot on the throttle over a lnonger period of time it would conc out.
i checked the spark plugs when it did not start and they were wet and sooted right up
has anyone got any ideas whwt this may be and whats causing it
the car was running ok until i used some electrical claener on some of the connections (i dont know if this is related)
