engine must be running Very poorly, no fire in the cyclinders = gas out the tail pipe usually, meaning, bad wires, bad plugs, bad ignition...one of the above, get tune up, or scope the car at a garage to find problem, sometimes air sensor is why, many problems can casue it, best to pin it down with the computer you hook into car for diagnostics.
