Hi all

Would appreciate some advice on a mechanical issue if anyone would like to oblige

My 1996 Spacewagon 2.0 GLXi with 170k miles is misfiring badly under acceleration when hot (not when cold), fuel mileage is substantially worse than before the problem started, and there is a smell of fuel. List of recent work (to hopefully rule out some potential faults) includes plugs, plug leads, distributor cap and rotor arms, carb cleaned, oil and filter and a rocker gasket to replace a weeping one).

The temperature gauge seems fine.

A bit stuck, would appreciate any suggestions!

Did you check compression? There might be problem with valve closing properly. I advice to test compression in each cylinder.
