This is usually due to a defective fuel injector. If the injector stays open, once the vehicle is shut off, all the remaining pressure in the fuel system will drain fuel through the injector, fill the cylinder, and overflow through the exhaust valve into the exhaust lines. The downside is that this injector could also be causing fuel to get into the engine oil by leaking around the piston rings. This will greatly reduce the oil's ability to lubricate and increase engine wear immensely. This issue needs repaired ASAP. Have the injectors checked, and any defective ones replaced. Have the oil and oil filter changed as a precaution as well.

2003 ford ranger 4.0 2 wd water and gas coming out of exhaust.


Water is normal to a point. Condensation. Gas smell is not. Due for a tune up? Injector/s may be stuck open.

Gas smell when shot the engine off.


stop shooting engine and leaks will , decrease some. LOL !


2004 Toy Highlander.
what you replaces is of no bearing.
what counts is realty.
find the leak.
if it really is raw gas, do not drive car or garage it.
park it far from home and people. (curb it.)
gas fumes if not real raw fuel (liquid) can come from EVAP canister
hose fell off.
first look for injector leaks (outside body)
and fuel hose leaks, (look at these first as they are 10x more dangerous that others)

does the PCM scans show DTC errors?
scan it, what do you have.?

if there is raw fuel dripping from the exhaust manifold that means
the INJECTors are stuck on or leaking, this is one of the most dangerous conditions on all EFI cars.
they to look more carefully
or better get a ASE mechanic to check the car out.
be safe.

My 1987 ford ranger died on my way home from class a couple days ago. it had been getting bad mpg the last few weeks and reduced power. before it broke down there was no power or response of any kind when...


raw gas smell is a sure indication of a fuel leak,,,the fuel filter on my ranger is directly under the drivers seat attached to the frame,,,crank it over and look under for leaking fuel,,,takes an inexpensieve tool to remove filter if thats where your leak is,,,the filter wont come off without the tool,,its cheap to purchase,,under 4 bucks,,doesnt matter if it wont start,,just crank & check for leak,,check under hood also,,,

2004 ranger 3.0L starts but idles rough then stalls. Problems started with major loss of power with a hi pitched whistling and strong exhaust smells.


I suspect you have plugged catalytic converter - hence the whistle. If you hook up a vacuum gauge to the intake manifold vacuum port, it will be low, like around 10 when it shoul dbe 17 incehs of vacuum.
Was you check engine light flashing? If so, too much raw fuel getting in converter overheating it.
