Hey, My name is Jerry from Deptford N.J. i drove about a mile while this happened to make it home do you think i messed up the engine too much.the oil is clear as it should be. But there is a gas smell when you open the oil cap. I have a bumper to bumper warrenty. just bought it 4 weeks ago with 11,716 miles with 12Lbs of boost already with pullys and a catback system. so if ford voids my warrenty which they said since it was on there already it is still covered. I think they are pulling a fast one on me. i can fix the problem. flush the oil out and replace filter and fuel rail Preasure sensor. I just wonder if the car was damaged too much. it all happened so quickly.turned around and was back home in 5 minutes. but it stalled several times.so I pushed it the rest of the way. I love the car but the stock clutch is wearing really bad and the shifter wont shift when it gets hot???? pro 50 short shift and a ram powergrip clutch should do the job. I think I am pushing too much HP. I just want the car to be perfect just bought it after my father died

this has happened to most of us-change the oil and the frps and you should be good to go-its the nature of this beast-and get a kb disc to prevent anymore frps failures:tip:

Told you Jerry-

It's been a while since I've been on the boards, I forgot about that new disc that goes between the rail and the sensor. But that was my advice, change the oil and replace the frps sensor. Keep a spare in the glovebox-

thank you very much for the help guys and mike who knew what was wrong the whole time. I want to know more about the disc that goes between the rail and the sensor and how much it would set me back? I just hope the motor is not damaged with the fuel running in the oil for over 5 minutes. but the oil looks like it's still new. Just smells like gas.

after doing a little searching looks like some\ not all have issues with the kb disc too? Jerry the disc is $12.

I have a return style fuel system, even though my frps is there it is useless. I was thinking of slipping the disc in there just for the hell of it but I'm running cpr rails so it won't fit anyway. Guess this problem is one of the reasons I did away with the stock set-up.

I do remember way back when my frps blew, it pissed me off big time that such a poor design would allow that vacuum line to syphin gas into the crankcase- WTF? lol......

Jerry, spend a few days on this board, reading, searching, talkin to people etc.... you'll learn everything about everything. Everyone else has experienced all the problems you'll have years ago- Make sure you search the forums before you ask dumb questions. Most guys on here get mad cause they've already seen 1000 posts about which oil is best etc......

if you beat on it- your gonna break something eventually- the aftermarket parts are endless- and soon enough you'll be upset and broke..... lol

i know this is off topic- sorry mods

but jerry makin absurd comments or bragging about money or what you have is childish \ stupid.

"shut your face. you could never get the money even if you tried!!!"

if that's how your gonna talk to other members here I don't want to be associated with you.

almost everyone on here is a pretty decent person, no name calling and bashing needed.

"if you beat on it- your gonna break something eventually- the aftermarket parts are endless- and soon enough you'll be upset and broke..... lol"

i think this is true for every cobra owner- this wasn't an insult \ attack. Thier is enough aftermarket parts to make any of us go broke, and yes if you beat on it, eventually something will break.

Hi,

I'm the administrator

See my name? It's Red. That's also the color my head turns when I get reported post emails about nonsense like this. It looks like everyone needs to take a step back and realize that text doesn't often reflect the (good natured) sarcasm people put into their posts


Welcome to the internet

Play nice.
