    My 92 caravan is giving me a hard time starting. It started fine
    Friday afternoon-we didn't drive it again until yesterday afternoon
    (sunday) and it was a hard start. After it started it had sort of a
    gasolin smell.
    Today same thing-it was a hard start but it started then a gasoline
    type smell. it ran fine I got to the grocery store turned it off and
    started it again it started fine-no problem at all. Did the
    shopping-came out hard start-got home turned it off and tried it
    again-again no problem starting it after it had been running.
    Any ideas on what I'm looking at as a problem? Battery? alternator?
    filter somewhere that might be clogged????

    When was the last time you had the Throttle Body cleaned??

    What engine size do you have?

    How many miles/kms??

    Some shops clean the throttle body as part of a tune-up (the good
    shops). Cheapie shops wont do it unless they charge you a lot extra.
    When was your last tune-up?
