    Okay so I've got a 2000 Mustang v6 5 speed with 155k. Now I've got something pretty weird going on, after driving for about 10 minutes (happens faster if driving faster) of driving you get this burning rubber smell inside and outside the car coming from the front passenger wheel area. I...

    Hi New Friends! My name is Jes and I have a 67 Mustang Coupe 289 2bbl V8. Don't be mad, but I know nothing about cars. I bought this car because you only live once and new cars are lame. So I will be here lots asking questions that your daughter/sister/wife might. You've been warned! I...

    I recently replaced the fuel filter on my 1998 3.8L V6 and now when I turn on the air(vent or a/c) I smell gas. I'm pretty sure I replaced the fuel filter correctly and didn't have any problems. I took the old one off and clicked the new one back in. Any help is much appreciated, Thanks, Michael.

    So I bought my Atlantic Blue GT with 146,xxx about a week ago. It seems to run at a good temperature, but the car feels really warm inside. The A/C doesn't work. My main concern is that I smell something coming from under the hood. My dad said it might be burning oil. I checked it tonight, and...

    Hi, I'm new here and really wanted to ask you guys a question. I have read on the internet that some people have issues reguarding a lopey cam with a pungent exhaust smell. Is this true? I really want the FRPP Hot Rod Cams BUT if they make my car smell from the inside or out like gas they are a...

    Hi all! I recently had the throwout bearing explode on me, so I had my clutch replaced. I went with a RAM HDX with a Ford Racing pilot bearing for replacement. I picked up the car today, and everything seems fine, but there are a couple of things I am unsure about. First, when I am starting off...

    Is there an known issue with intermittent burning electrical insulation on a 2005 Mustang GT with the climate controls. Every once in a while I'll smell something like burning wire insillation (almost like a burning plastic smell) when running the heat or A/C. I turn it all off and the smell...

    Before I spend by precious mod funds , I thought I would pose this question to the forum. I have a 2008 GT convertible 5 speed manual with 28k miles and I am getting an exhaust smell inside the car at all speeds and types of driving. It's a little more tolerable when I use the recirculate air...

    I've got a 66 Mustang with a 200 6 cylinder in it. I've had it on the road for about a year now and overall it runs and handles fine. My issue is an intermittent gas smell inside the vehicle. I can drive sometimes for a day or two, and there is no smell of gas, and all of a sudden there it is...

    I recently purchased a 1994 3.8 L V6 5 speed Mustang with 130,000 miles on it. Oddly, it seems to run smooth, but there is a problem in, I assume, the fuel system. The car gets only 12-13 mpg, and there is an aroma of fuel that frequently comes into the passenger compartment. I just finished...
