Ford Mustang Fuel Problems



  • backnine36backnine36 Member Posts: 1
    Have any of you 05 GT owners had a problem with a gas smell inside your car? I get a gas smell the first time I start the car, and sometimes when the car is restarted from a short time frame. The smell is strong at times, I changed the injector seals and a month later the same smell has returned. Any suggestions as to the next fix? I've heard the the fuel filter could be the cause, if so where is it located? :confuse:

    Doubt it's the fuel filter. Could be the evap cannister - I think that's the most common cause. Could also be a leaky fuel injector that leaks while it sits, then burns off after you start the car.

    I am a fleet mechanic.We had 2006 Ford pickup with a slow fueling problem.I replaced the charcoal cannister and the filter shown in the link to ratstangrestoration link. The pictures look a lot like the parts on the truck.Our trucks operate in extreme dust conditions all the time.The trucks filter was also clogged.The truck had a half of gas in it. I filled it up after repairs and it took gas just fine.

    Bought my first mustang a couple of months back, check engine light was on, had to change the o2 sensor, not a big deal, thought I'd also change the plugs, and wires for the plugs.

    Now it seems like I don't have the power that I once did. Placed the old wires back on car, restored some of the power, but it still acts like its loading up. or bogs down when to press the gas peddle. No codes being thrown this time around. don't have much elc to go on. Any in put would be nice.

    Thanks in advance:
