I have a 2005 ford sport trac I have gas leaking from my exhaust flange and a lot of white smoke what is wrong with

You have either a cylinder misfire, not allowing the fuel to burn therefore its coming out of the exhaust, or you have a leaking injector letting too much fuel into the cylinder to burn and fouling out your spark plug. \

Are you sure its fuel?

Why do I smell gas and it's leaking from the exhaust pipe?

If you have raw fuel coming out of the exhaust pipe , you have real issues. There are a couple reasons this can happen.

1. You have a dead cylinder and the fuel is not being burned and is exhausted thru the tailpipe. This is unusual since most of the time if this occurs during operation the catalytic converter is hot enough to burn off the excess fuel.

2. You have a frozen injector and it is leaking into the cylinder after shutdown. Hard to believe this though, as you'd need a good bit of fuel to fill a cylinder to where it could flow out through an open exhaust valve. Usually the fuel would wash down past the piston rings first into the oil pan.

Smel of fuel throgh the exhaust

Gas Smell from Exhaust Sometimes you may find that the exhaust smells like gas. This is normally a problem with the air and fuel mixture as your fuel injector may be sending too much gas through the engine and not all is burning. This can easily be fixed by having your engine properly tuned. You also may not be using the correct brand of gasoline. Therefore the engine and exhaust are not working properly which results in gas like odors emerging. You may also find that the fuel injector is clogged and needs cleaning. Another cause of this gas smell is a stuck choke if you have a carburetor.

Strong gas smell inside of car

is there a leak in your fuel line, or possibly your fuel filter, if you see raw gas leaking, then it is dangerous for you tio continue to drive it, it only takes one spark to ignite it, however, if the smell is just your car burning rich and the exhaust has holes in it, it will smell up the inside of your car. And yes if your carb. is burning too rich then it needs adjusted. Wasting your fuel, and overloading your engine. I hope some of this was helpfull.

Sounds like there is unburnt fuel. Could be a spark plug that's burnt out and therefore just flooding a cylinder. Which would push out fuel through the exhaust valve on the exhaust stroke. So once the fuel hits the inside of the exhaust manifold, it burns white, as if you're boiling it off. That one cylinder could have a damaged compression ring on the piston, so the fuel is bypassing it and going into the oil.

I would have your engine tuned up, and check the compressions on the cylinders.

What is trouble code for p o 171???

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1. Try cleaning your MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow) and run a good fuel system cleaner through it.

Poor gas mileage

Do you have a gas smell in vehicle if you do there check and make sure that you are NOT loosing gas by a leak in the fuel line that was replaced or anyother part of the fuel sytem for that fact. If there is NO leak then the pressure from the pump may be too high and therefore dumping too mucj fuel into chambers but if this is true the vehicle may have a hesitation on take off or may run a little roughand a rich burning smell from exhaust, Check these things out make sure that the fuel pressure at the injector rail is correct refer to your repair manal for exact specs,because I NOT sure what it its, good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

The most likely cause is that the motor is running very lean. Make sure that all of the componets for the air intake system are connected and not leaking. This can happen if you have changed to one of the new high flow air cleaners like K&N. This causes the air/fuel mixture to have too much air and not enough fuel (lean). If you can adjust the carb then make it richer.,
