Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, and thanks for using just answer.
I would like to help guide you through the process of diagnosing your vehicle.
I have read your description of the problem, and from what little information I have this sounds like there is/are bad ignition coils that are bad. The blue smoke is unburnt fuel and that's why you sense the smell of gas emanating from the tail pipe.
There are 8 ignition coils on your engine so the easiest way to determine which of the coils are bad, you would need to have the the check engine light scanned. If you can retrieve the code by having the computer scanned by an autoparts store or a shop. Please let me know the code and I can guide you through the next steps.
Lets not go that far yet. That would cost a ton of money and we just need to fix the fault causing the issue. If you get the vehicle scanned at an autozone to pull the check engine codes we can get this narrowed down and get this fixed fairly cheaply and easily. Let me know what you find regarding the codes. Thanks
