The clamp bolt in the center of the steering column put a small cut in the #5 ignition wire and sent the code to the computer for multiple ignition failures(I forget exactly the terminology that they used and what code; I think it was 0300). The arching must have told the computer to richen up the mixture because you could smell raw fuel. I replaced the wires and ran a can of Seafoam through one of the vacuum lines(brake booster) and all seems well. If I had listened to everything I read at other websites I would have been replacing the Cats and the Ignition Coils-very expensive items. Instead it cost me $50 for a set of wires.

I had a similar problem in a 1994 Taurus, and after spending nearly 300$ on ignition parts, it turns out the problem was a bad spark plug wire that cost me 8.88$ to replace.
