have drove my car after I change the oil 5W 40 and
now it won't start but was driving fine before I did
my oil change and this is my first time using 5W 40
my car starts but wouldn't turn over as if it's not
getting gas and I can smell gas fumes I have
checked the codes and got

p1426,p0102 but I just got a tune-up a couple

codes my car was running fine and check engine
light been on p0420 and p0299 and was still
driving now I have all these other codes and now it
won't turn over but it seems like it's not getting
enough gas can anyone help with some ideas

420 is a catalytic converter problem. causes might be: Damaged muffler or leaks in the muffler Damaged exhaust manifold or leaks in the exhaust manifold Damaged exhaust pipe or exhaust pipe leaks A misfire in the engine Oil contamination in catalytic converter Faulty catalytic converter (most common) Faulty engine coolant temperature sensor Faulty front oxygen sensor Faulty rear oxygen sensor Damaged oxygen sensor wiring Oxygen sensor wiring that is not properly connected Damaged oxygen sensor connectors A fuel injector that is leaking Fuel pressure that is high Use of the wrong kind of fuel (using leaded fuel instead of unleaded fuel) the 299 is a turbo code and you need to have it checked. causes may be: Faulty turbo or supercharger Low oil pressure in the engine Fault in the EGR system Air or intake leak or restriction Faulty boost pressure sensor 456 is an Evaporative Emissions System Small Leak is Detected most common cause of 456 gas cap vent or purge vent valve will not seal completely. 1456 is tank vent valve open which could be valve N80 if gas cap ok 0102 is MAF... is the air filter clean? as for the random misfire and cylinders 2, 3 & 4 misfires, they may be related to the turbo and cat problems. i'd get those fixed and see if the misfires go away.
