Default 626 not starting

Hi... I have a 1994 626 ES 2.5 that turns over & kicks but will not start. It smells of gas like it is flooded. I have run the battery down & boosted it a couple of times. Ign coil or injector? Any Ideas?
Thanks, Tim in Minnesota. Car has 100,000 miles on it.

I have a similar problem, 95 626 4 cylinder. Used to start with one turn of crank, now it turns over and tries, but takes 1-2 minutes to start. It appears to be worse when pointing up hill compared to down hill. Once started, runs rough with alot of smoke for 2-3 min, then runs normally. During starting process, heavy raw fuel smell, have had car for 8 months, and this just started. Any help appreciated.

Dave, it sounds like you have yourself a bad fuel pump. simple enough fix. Meals: With the fuel smell, i'd say change plugs/wires, and if needed, dizzy cap, and if further needed, complete distributor.
