    Default '98 XT 1.8 16v Running rich and stalling

    Went to start my car this morning and it kept stalling, I had to hold the accelerator on until it warmed up and it would stall whenever I engaged the clutch. It also smelt strongly of fuel when I first started it. I'm at a loss and don't have the cash spare to pay someone rn (uni student). Any suggestions of where to look?

    That sounds like a weak spark. Does it have coils on the head or a single coil beside the head?

    Check for vacuum leaks to the intake first.

    Check all the wiring to the O2 sensor and separate and check inside the connectors . (Free)
