http://www.troublecodes.net/ford/ ..Both of those codes are engine coolant temperature sensor problems. It 'thinks' the engine is cold whether it is or not, and 'chokes' the old-style single port throttle body, making it hard to start when warmed up, and run rich, and there is your fuel odor. replace the sending unit.
