98 Mustang Gt Not running

I have a 98 Mustang Gt with 4.6 liter engine. I go to start it up and it shuts off. white smoke comes out of exhaust pipes. Smell like excessive gas, car will not run unless gas pedal is pushed. believe it to be a fuel system problem. Anybody here of this problem?

Re: 98 Mustang Gt Not running

Hi,I have some similar problems with my 2005 gt . The battery went flat,when I was changeing the evolution open air kit,back to the original air cleaner box ! When I had the batteri charged again,the engine would not go normal ! It is on the edge to stop,if I dont pushing the throttle easely,and it smokes and smell gasoline ?????

I started having problems after changing the intake. it had a plastic water jacket now has a metal water jacket in it. the check engine light has been on for two months.

yes the guy told me it was something with fuel system but it was a generic code, He told me it could be one of 25 things, so he told me to try cleaning mass air flow sensor. that did not work.

Buy a tuner. It will diagnose and clear codes and they tune the engine for more power

Re: 98 Mustang Gt Not running

Plugs were changed when we changed intake and wires were changed last month. it seems to be getting spark. It just wont stay running unless you are on the gas pedal.
