hello i have a 89 240 with 180k. i was giong to work and my car broke down at a gas station. it cranks but wont turn over. this happened before but i got it started last time within about ten minutes. this time it wont turn over at all. i dont think its the starter becuase it turns over and its not the fuel pump becuase i can smell the gas. after about ten minutes of trying to start it i started mashing the gas so it could be flooded. anyway, i still cant figure out why it wont start in the first place. the batterys good and i just replaced the alternator. i also replaced the valve cover seal, could that have anything to do with it? i have no idea on this one, any help would be much appreciated.
