What could be wrong with my car?
when starting my car it will idle up really hard and
then it will die down really low then it will be
normal. But sometimes when I try to start it, it will
act like its flooded and I will have to push the gas
in all the way for it to start. Then I will put it in
reverse to back up and it will die on me. Then I'll
have to repeat the same thing like it is flooded
again. Also it has been burning really rich. And it
blows through gas like its nothing. If I'm going up
a hill I will literally watch the gas gage drop a
quarter of a tank! I don't know very much about
cars. But I would just like some suggestions on
what might be causing this! Thanks for the help!
Sounds like the cars maintenance hasn't been kept up to date. Start with the easy stuff, since you don't know much about cars, have your mechanic change the fluids and filters, check for vacuum leaks. How old are the spark plugs and wires, probably time to change, also clean the throttle body.
