    I started my jeep this morning and gas is pouring out of the tail pipe. Someone suggested a timing issue. Any advice?

    Pouring or dripping? Check your water level in your radiator. i would not think that enough fuel is sprayed through the injectors that can make it to the end of the tail pipe before evaporating. There are enough deposites in the exhaust pipe that water coming through it can smell like weak fuel. I'm not saying it's not possible just trying to give you other more likely sonerios. Was it cool and damp where you are. I have seen condensation do what you describe and after you drive a few miles all the water evaporates.

    Anyone else have any thoughts.

    I agree with the condensation, all cars do that now including our old ones due to the ethanol in the fuel
