My car starts, sputters, then shuts off. I smell gas but there aren't any leaks?


Asked by Mar 30, 2015 at 01:32 PM about the 2006 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car has a check engine light on
but it's been there since I bought it,
the code I was given was for the
oxygen sensors about a month ago.(I
haven't fixed them) there is gas in the
car, and I've checked underneath
and there are no leaks. Can anyone
let me know what the problem might

Exactly what code do you have? If the upstream oxygen sensor is bad it could cause this. I'd address the trouble code and go from there. If you have more than 90,000 miles on the car you're due for a tune up. Keep that in mind as well. HTH. -Jim

I have the code for two upstream and one downstream, and I've just reached 100,000 miles. And thank you so much.

You're welcome. Glad to help. Address the oxygen sensors and give it a tune up. -Jim
