Okay, so we have replaced the starter, new wires, plugs, cap and rotor. In fact we just put on a new rotor because the one we put on with the new cap didn't work right (even had a weird wear spot on the back of it - guess it didn't fit right). When you turn the key, the fuel pump comes on. Crank it and the starter sounds strong and attempts to catch and can't. I can smell fuel under the hood when I open it. Took off the cap to take a look and the rotor is still attached no wearing or carbon on the connectors between the cap and rotor. I thought I read somewhere that the clear piece that the cap and rotor sit on can be taken off and cleaned. Is that right? And how do I do that? Could the wires be fouled out already - maybe they were cheap?
