Question about Ford Mustang

1 Answer

What could be wrong with my ford 302 motor for my oil to be thin and smell like gas is mixed in it?

The truck apparently had blown out a freeze plug prior to it being parked for 2 years. It was supposed to be fixed and he drove it home and it hasn't run since. Maybe that little bit of info will help.

    Alright so what does warped mean? Fixable? I was leaning towards a blown head gasket since there was white smoke coming out of the tail pipes, possible?

2 solutions: first, ignition control module is getting hot and shutting car down. 2nd; you didn't mention your dash(service soon) lights were on.<p>
You said the fuel filter was pretty clogged up. It's sounds like a bad case of EGS(ethanol gas syndrome). The ethanol;being a corn deritive;acts like corn liquor(which is what is is), and turns the fuel to goop, and adds large amounts of water through out all the systems.<p>
It clogs up the fuel lines,the injectors, and ruins fuel pumps. It also puts heavy carbon on egr valves, int. and exh. valves, and can ruin oxy sensors, and catalytic converters.<p>
Let's try the cheapest way first:Buy a can of SEAFOAM and Berkline 2+2 at your parts store. Take out the oxy sensor(s) and clean the ends using the 2+2 and re-install.
Then change out the fuel filter again. Pour the SF into a tank of PREMIUM(only) gas. Change the pcv valve. Then start vehicle and let idle for 3-5 min(even if you have to rev it up to do it to get the SF flowing through the system), and then drive it 10 hard miles.<p>
Replace that fuel filter, and then let it idle some more. Your car sounds like it is really messed up bad. Unless you take it to a garage that has a fuel system cleaner machine, this is the best way to do it.<p>
After this, add SF every 3-5000 miles to your tank. It will prevent this from happening again. Also; to be on the safe side. Have a PSI check on your fuel pump. This goop could have burnt it up. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Oil leaking out fast when engine running.

Have you checked to see if the oil filter? it may be the source of the leak, also check the oil press sending unit and the oil pan drain plug.

sounds almost like the newer vehicles equiped with cam sensors instead of the distributer system i had a similar problem with an 87 ford bronco 2 it would stall out right around 2800 rpm i replaced the control module usually mounted on the distributer at least mine was and it fixed it right up but as for ur truck im not sure they are only like 30 bucks at autozone or something worth a try right??

Sounds like the fuel pump is not working. I would find myself a repair manual and start reading about troubleshooting. If not interested in that I would call a repair shop.

Milky brown looking oil, what causes this???


It should go without saying that it is IMPOSSIBLE to answer your question without knowing the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle. That being said, gasoline in the oil usually causes the oil to be thin and smell like gasoline. Oil usually becomes milky brown when it is overheated (due to using the wrong grade of oil or too long of an interval between oil changes. Oil becomes gray if water gets mixed into the fuel, as happens when head gaskets fail.
Verify that you are using the correct oil for the application, and following manufacturer's recommendation for oil change intervals.

Smoke smells like fuel. took out spark plugs and then I turned key to spin the motor. it was spraying a lot fuel out


Looks like a blown head gasket. Take off the oil cap and/or dip stick and see if you have an anti-freeze/oil sludge mixture. If so, that's the problem. Could be the exhaust manifold gasket too.

1994 Ford Mustang blowing white smoke that smells like pure gas. Gas running straight through and getting about 5 mile per gallon.


Sounds like a blown head or intake gasket. Coolant in the oil is a sure sign. Another sure sign is loss of coolant with no obvious leaks.

Coolant in the cylinders will emit white smoke, and the fuel smell is probably raw fuel passing through because it can't ignite due to the coolant.

Pull the dipstick and if the oil looks milky, then it is a blown gasket, or worst case scenario, a cracked head or block.

Car pops and jerks when excelerated and smells of burning oil


you may have too much oil in your car, or the wrong kind. Your spark plugs/ wires may be bad.. IF IT WAS ME... I WOULD FIRST. Check the oil, is it a clear color like brown or a milky creamy brown?? You may have a blown head gasket, if your oil is creamy brown you have water in your oil and the head gasket is blown or in the process of blowing.

Gas in oil


Ok, only two ways the oil can mix with the gas. one is a blown head gaskets. the other would be bad piston rings.

We have not ran the car in a while a little white smoke


White smoke is a sign of a blown head gasket and coolant is getting into the engine with the oil and gas. Check your coolant for signs of oil, and smell for signs of gas. Check your oil and see if it is milky. Milky oil means that coolant is getting past the head gasket.
