Engine light + Shake + Gas smell
An hour ago, I started my Taurus 2005 to go home. I felt some shaking in the car. When I shifted the gear into drive mode, the shake increased a little bit. I tried shifting it to neutral and putting it back in drive mode in the hope that this is freak one-time incident. But, the problem still continued. Then I felt some gas smell as my windows were half open (honestly speaking this smelled more like kerosene rather than petrol). So, I stopped the car, got out and lifted the hood to see if everything is alright. When I started the car with the hood open, I did not get any gas smell. So, I got back in, restarted the car and now the engine light comes on. The shake is still there when I reached my home.
As soon as I came home, I am posting it here. Any advice in this regard will be useful. I am going to autozone first thing in the morning to read the codes.
Thanks a lot.
