I have a 2001 ford mustang gt and its running rough and blowing a lot of white smoke that smells like gas when I start it. Also, the oil has a little bit of a gas smell. What could be wrong?

Do you

Could be leaky injectors or the fuel pressure regulator

White smoke usually indicates coolant in the combustion chamber, such as in the case of a blown head gasket.

Did the engine run hot before this white smoke started?
Is this a 3.8L engine?

Have it tested for combustion gases in the cooliing system.
