I have a 2000 Cavalier, we left it in the garage for a month while we went home. When we came back it wouldn't start[headbang], you can hear the fuel pump, we checked the battery and the spark plugs and it tries to start and puffs black smoke out the tailpipe and the whole engine shakes extremely violently. I really cant afford to have it towed and taken to a shop. Any advice or suggestions would be great

Bad gas? Re-gap your plugs?
