Subject: 87 900i Starting Problem

My 87 900 is having a starting problem. It gets plenty of gas, the cold start valve works fine (it's pretty cold here now in NY), and I get spark from the distibutor. I suspect that it's the spark plugs, but I dont have the proper tool to take out the spark plugs and check them. Here is a list of my car's symptoms: 1: Cranks over and sputters on occasion 2: After cranking over for some period of time, fuel leaks onto the ground (I wonder if it's because I cranked it too much) 3: Stopped starting when it got cold outside (I dont know if it's a coincidence or not) I had it towed to a garage, but before they go replacing the engine and charging me an arm and another arm, and a leg, I want to see if anyone else has had this problem and has an easy fix. (replace the spark plugs maybe?) Any info would be great, thanks.... -Chris
