The only way gas can get into your oil pan is for it to get past the rings. The rings could be broken or just plain worn out. But for that much raw fuel to be getting past the rings, you have to have a LOT of gas going into the cylinders when the engine is off. Could be that your fuel pump is not shutting down and pushing raw gas into at least one cylinder with a valve open. Once engine is off, listen for the hum of the fuel pump still running.

    Will you have an electric pump on an '82 ford? More like if its a crb, the float is leaking and dumping gas down the manifold. I stand by my fuel lift pump diaphragm leaking theory though. Mainly because I've had it on a diesel engine with similar symptoms. ie fuel in the sump.

    Sorry, that should be "carb"

Check the lift pump on the side of the block. If the diaphrams gone it leaks into the sump.

    I agree tim, sice has a manual pump mostlikely float is set too high and dumpin fuel into the manifold. If it had a bad diaphram in the pump tho, it wouldn't pump fuel but fuel could get past the diaphram then and into sump, just by gravity/syphon.

I have a 1998 ford explorer it will start and when you put it in gear and accelerate the gas it barely moves if any at all .can't drive it no were and it smells like oil is in the transmission fluid what...


Look underneath. Is there trans oil leaking? Its red and thin so should be dripping easily.
Is the trans correctly filled? Low oil will prevent it moving. Check trans oil with engine running. Should be near high mark.
Is the smell oil? Or are the brakes jammed on?

Won't start but did and stalled out won't start at all now and oil filler cap smells like gas


If the oil cap smells like gas, one of the injectors may be flooding the cylinder and the crankcase. That would not be a filter problem.
Check the spark plugs to see if they are wet.

I have a gas smell in my oil on my 1995 Mustang GT 5.0. It is milkly


if its a petrol smell then maun suspect is head gasket leaking between a water port and a oil return gallery with the help of a piston hence the petrol as well ,without a complete strip down its impossible to say its between one and two or three and four cylinders or whatever if it was just water in the oil then its highly feasable its a radiator where the oil cooler is in the rad .But this smells of petrol so go the whole hog and pull the heads off

I have a 2001 ford ranger and white smoke is coming from my tailpipe that smells like gas


your tail pipe is always going to smell like gas the white smoke is oil being burned from worn out valve guides or rings.

When you drive it you can smell oil when it gets hot


Either oil is dripping on ur exhaust pipe and u smell it burning! Or Ur blowback oil/gas is the one ur smelling at, usually on top of ur engine valve cover there is a breather outlet connected with hose and goes thru the air claner housing! The hose might have cracks or been disconnected, check on that! Hope that might help you!

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.

Gas smell in oil


The white strip of fluid on the oil is a slight amount of coolant getting into the oil . The water could be from condensation on the dip stick. I would drain the oil and just put regular recommended oil in it with a new filter. I would pull the spark plugs and check for any coolant or oil residue on them.Then drive the vehicle a little and check the performance. If there is unusual noise from the engine then or blue smoke from the tailpipe the engine has internal damage.

Assuming the engine performance stays the same. There could be a fuel injector sticking intermitantly.
