Having problems with your 1995 Buick Park Avenue ?

Fuel Trouble? I am having to really press on the gas pedal for it to go. The pickup on it is not as good as it once was. Today, when going from a stop light, it almost studdered and I felt it was going to die on me. I just recently replaced my air compressor for cool air, but I'm not sure if the two are related. Also today, once I got home, it has a strong odor of gas inside and outside of the car. What can this possibly be? Please help. Thanks!

Davidslade , sounds like you may have some ignition trouble (not the ignition where the key goes). The plug wires could need to be replaced and or you could have a bad coil pack. tonight when it gets dark out, pop the hood and check for a light show- what i mean is you should see little arcs of light if the wires are bad, BUT not all the time. take a windex bottle with water in it and spray the plug wires from the coil pack to the plugs. then watch and listen for changes in its run-ability. if your not sure take it for a quick spin with the wires wet down. if you have an ohm meter you can test the coil pack by checking continuity between the studs where the wires go onto it. it should have aprox. 1300-1500 ohms. if ofer 1500 ohms the definately replace it. if you see and white corrosion replace the wires as the terminals will be corroded inside the end.
\015\012 One more thing you can do for hesitation is clean the mass air flow sensor. it is the black box on the throttlebody that is held on with 3 phillips head screws. don't loose the o-ring when you remove it. blast off the two wires suspended between the two posts with good choke cleaner but do not touch them with anything no matter how much you mant to-k?. reinstall it and whether that was related the car will run better and get better fuel milage. Good luck.

First find the origin of the fuel smell? It could be a small leak ,the vehicle maybe running rich or you could have a concern with the evap. system? When was the last time you replaced the fuel filter? If it is restricted it can cause the power loss. Is the check engine light on?
