I have a 93 Dodge Colt 1.5 liter engine. I've noticed in the last month or so after it starts that the idle seems to go high and take 15 or 20 seconds to get back down to normal. Two days ago I went to the store and got back in the car and it just cranked over and would not start. I waited about 1 minute and tried it again and started right up. Then I went to the gas station, got gas and again it would just crank and not start. Waited about 1 minute and started right up and got me home about 10

I only cleaned the spark plugs with a bristle brush.

It turns over but will never start, Now, I backed into parking stall, truck went dead while it was still iddling; Gas lite came on, and it will not start. Put in gas, even though it still had plenty. Still turns over really great, just wont fire.
