1994 Ford Mustang 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 151200 miles
I own a 1994 Ford Mustang 232 3.8 V6 and I can smell fuel in the oil, blue smoke comes out of the exhaust and leaves a lingering cloud. It idles very rough and it lacks a very disturbing amount of power. It also backfires frequently. Nothing too noisy but I can feel and hear popping. What do you think may be wrong with it? My dad tested it out by just running it for a few minutes and he thinks a piston ring blew. It starts funny too, it will drop below idle speed and then shut off. It's been doing that since I got the car. The only thing I can think of for that is the idle air control valve being faulty. But as for the oil problem I have no idea.
