I have a 2001 porsche 911 carrera s and Everytime I put it

Customer Question

I have a 2001 porsche 911 carrera s and Everytime I put it in gears it dies. But it revs up nice. At idle it sounds like someone with the flue, sneezing, coughing, ... It smells like raw fuel. I think there's something with the wiring and/or vacuum lines. I need help.

it sounds like a vacuum leak can you hear a whistling sound or a hissing sound when the car is at idle

There is no whistling or hissing sound. What is your thought on a bad variocan solenoid? Or plugs or injectors or the cause of the fuel smell?
