2008 Impala Issues w/ Startup
have a 2008 Chevy Impala 3.5L V6 (Owned for the last 6 years; 120K miles). Below are the issues I'm dealing with
After the car has been sitting for awhile it starts up fine (i.e. in the morning)
After I make one stop and go to turn it on again, it sputters and dies out. It takes about 4 to 5 attempts to get it going. When I finally get it going I have to let it run for awhile while in park or else it will die out when I go to put it in gear.
White smoke and the smell of gas on the start up.
I think it's interesting that it starts fine after the car has been sitting for hours. This leads me to believe that it might be the fuel pump however, I want to ask you guys to get your opinion. Maybe y'all have experienced this before. Thanks in advance for the help!
