Mechanic's Assistant: When did you last fill the tank? And do you smell gasoline around the engine?

Can not smell gasoline around the engine and filled up 1 week ago and car has been off the road for 3 days

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '06 Kia?

Carnival VQ

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes we have tried a new fuel filter we have dropped the tank and emptied it and got the fuel pump assesories and replaced that

Timing belts are good we have finally got the car to start but now there is grey smoke coming out of the exhaust and you can smell fuel
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 7 days ago

Ok, so the engine was flooded for some reason , no spark etc.

The smoke might disappear once it gas been revved up a bit etc.
