Ok, after a ton of reading, I came to one conclusion. One of my biggest problems was my IAC sensor. Looks like I need to replace that.

Another problem. In trying to figure out what was causing my startup problem, I changed my fuel filter. Fired right up. Ran great that night....

Now my problem... The next day it wouldn't start at all. It cranks, but it won't turn over. After I try starting it, I smell gas, but it comes from the rear of the car. I can't find any leaks, and can't pinpoint the exact location of the smell of gas.

Now, I am not sure if it is a problem with the filter, or how I installed it, or something else.

Could this still have anything to do with the IAC, or do I have another problem now?

Any ideas?

A former Ford dealership mechanic thought it was the IAT, or MAF sensor gone bad, or a bad connection. One of my other mechanic buddies (drives and works primarily on mustangs) thinks it lost it's spark.

Thanks in advance for any info guys

You smell gas at the rear of the car because unburnt fuel is exiting your exhaust pipes as you try to start the engine and it doesn't fire. I agree with your Mustang buddy, its not getting spark. What kind of car do you have? Year, engine, etc.?
