Having problems with your 1988 Chevrolet Celebrity ?
Fuel odor.engine lacks power and hard to start when engine get hot!
These are pretty basic set up fortunately. First thing to check is the catalytic converter. You do this by simply running the ngine til operating temperature is achieved and looking underneath the car for any component of the exhaust system that may be glowing red. If nothing is found there, check and replace your fuel filter which is underneath the vehicle usually right around the axle area. Blow through it and if you really have to try, it is plugged. Just that easy. The other thing it can be is the coolant temperature switch, which if not operating properly, can tell the engines computer that the system is still cold and will try to inject more fuel causing the odor and can melt the "cats" insides together causing a restriction in the exhaust and an extreme lack of power. Try these basic items first and let me know what you find. We can move forward from there.
