: 95 Aurora hard to start !!

05-01-04, 10:00 PM
I was wondering if you guys could help, my 95 aurora had 110K miles on it and it has become hard to start when at running temp, it starts fine when cold but when warm it will turn over forever if i don't give it a little gas, then when it finially does start it blows some black smoke(unburnt fuel) and smells like gas. I have changed plugs in it it has a cold air intake on it which is clean, the wires look ok but i know that doesn't mean anything.
The car runs great when running and it does this about 85% of the time.
Has anyone had this problem? I am thinking of buying a scantool but didn't have much luck with the last one i bought for a 94 caprice i had trouble with.
And i dread going to the dealer(shiver).
Any help would be great
