I have a 2001 lincoln ls v6 and when I start it it will idle high then lower down but when I go to give it gas once it hits around 40mph it spudders and wont go any higher then if I go to put it in gear the car shuts off. When you look at the exhaust its a thick white smoke and it has a very rich gasoline smell. I plugged it up to my computer and it said piston 3 and 5 are misfiring and the egr valve popped up. I put a new egr valve in the car and nothing happened so I know its one of the sensors but I replaced the one behind the motor and nothing happened and I disconnected the battery to reset the computer but nothing happened so I took the head off the motor and looked inside and there is like an inch thick of carbon build up inside the head I was wondering what sensor is in control of the carbon and if I replace that sensor it would fix the car

Do you

Did you remove the head or the valve cover?

There is no sensor for carbon.

What were the codes? Including the egr?
