2006 mustang v6, started car, idled at about 750 rpm, a little missing, in-dash temperature gauge varied a little in normal range, turned heater on and in-dash gauge bottomed out and car stopped running. Turns over but wont start now, strong smell of gas.
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: it started normally before I turned on the heater, this is my son's car so I don't know about the gas mileage
JA: Are you fixing your Mustang yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I will take it to a dealership for repair, I was trying to see if the thermostat
may have been installed incorrectly. My son had a coolant
leak fixed about a month ago. I started it up and let the car idle until the in-dash gauge got up to operating temperature and observed the holding tank, there was no flow through the holding tank.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
