Hi guys I have an 87 Gt 5.0 I smell gas somewhere, if it is a leak, could that possibly have something to do with my car pretty much stalling at a stop and when I put it in gear? Idles like crap but drives ok, was thinkin fuel filter too, any ideas guys???? Thanks

check your fpr as well if its acting like it is going to stall, fuel rails could be leaking

thanks for the reply, i will try the regulator. It dont smell like its leaking by the motot, by my gas tank it smells strong. Just wondering if I have a leak in a line or such, if that will affect the pressure and cause the bad ideling and stalling, thanks

when you come to a stop and almost stall that is mostly caused by a faulty vehicle speed sensor, but I could imagine if the pressure is too low ill-efects could come along with that.

the vehicle speed sensor is where the speedometer cable plugs into the tranny, its a little 3-4" piece with a gear on the end
