1987 944 No start


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 55000;

Last fall the engine would not crank however I was able to push start it. I changed the starter and the engine cranked but would not start. After cranking it a few times the engine would not start. I traced the problem to a bad connector on the starter solenoid. I changed the connector and the engine again cranks but won't start. I smell fuel and confirmed ignition spark with a timing light. I changed plugs and it still won't start. I pulled the air filter cover and there appears to be fuel mist coming out the intake which seems odd. Sometimes when it is cranking, when I release the ignition switch the engine almost catches but doesn't. Suggestions??
