This my situation…had my 96 GT garaged for about two years. I now have the need for this car to become my daily commuter. All I did was charge the battery and the car started like nothing. I did smell some gasoline smell coming from the engine, but could not see any leaks or anything I took it to smog failed so I changed oil, spark plugs, oil filter, air filter and then as soon as I turn the engine on looks like a cylinder one misfired based on the check engine code. That engine code was not there before.
I took it to the smog station again and it failed again with almost exactly results. I did reset the check engine code and after driving the car for 750 miles it has not appeared again. I do notice that it is creating more steam from the exhaust, more than normal I have never seen it this way before. It goes away eventually but I have never seen it that much before. The low oil came on which before It never did, I checked the oil and I smell gasoline a little, I mean I just changed the oil about 750 miles ago and it is low….could all this be connected with the misfiring of the cylinder? What about the air filter I know I had to remove the Air Flow Thing, Maybe I did something wrong with that? Any ideas? Thank you….See my other thread for feedback on the overall issues I am having with this car. Thank you.
