Its not the battery if it cranks over and over it has plenty of juice and is not sulphated. The switch in your trunk is an inertia activated fuel cut off and shouldnt be the problem unless you had an accident or slamed the door so hard you blew the windows out. Try what Bullit5339 said earlier and check to see if you have spark on 1 of your spark plug wires it should be clearly visable if you hold the boot of the wire over the tip of the plug you should be able to see the spark jump the gap (keep your fingers away from the end). Checking the valve on the fuel line only tells you that you have fuel in the lin eor if you put a gauge on it it will give you the system pressure, it wont tell you if the injectors are working properly or are receiving the signal to open. I just found out about noid light sets from pfm302guy. They are lights that you put in series with the injector and wiring to see if they are actually getting the signal from the control module. Anyway dont hate your Mustang, there are 1000's of pieces that make up a vehicle and eventually all cars need to be worked on. Just be thankfull that you dont have to pay $5000 to get an oil change and have minor tune ups like some of the exotic cars.

sounds like either a fuel or air problem. Have you checked fuel pressure at the Schrader valve?

Cars will have problems man. Buying a Kia doesn't mean the grass will be greener. You may just want to bite the bullitt and have a repair shop tow and fix it. To me it doesn't sound like anything major to fix. Like Bullitt said it sounds like an air or fuel problem.

It would still run if the IAC was bad, it would just give you a CEL.

i suggest changing your fuel filter it might be dirty an might not be letting enough fuel get through also put some fuel injector cleaner in your tank. but even before that it never hurts to check all your fuses. even the ones under the hood. you wanna check the simple things first. let us know what the problem was when you get it running.

Black smoke is unburned fuel, sounds like you may have flooded it, i konw sounds crazy concidering its fuel injected, but the other day i went to start my truck, 2002 f150 5.4, and i didnt hold the key long enough, it tried to start, but i stopped cranking just before it could bust off concidering how cold it was, but it did flood, and wouldnt start, all i had to do was hold the gas pedal wide open while cranking, this shuts the fuel injectors off and allows more air to enter, so if it happens again, try holding it at wot and cranking, be sure to let off if it does fire up tho.

It sounds more and more to me like you had some water or other impurities in the gas. Even if it is running good try some injector cleaner and you may also want to have them serviced because the screen basket in them will fill up with rust chunks and crapp that is in the fuel system not allowing the gas to flow free. Also I would consider changing the fuel filter anyway.

Could the car have been in Fail Safe Mode?

Happened with my sister's Ford Five Hundred 2005... car wouldnt start we finally started and black smoke came out and the car was running horribly.

Turns out it was the chip in the key. The cars anitheft was turned on and prevented it from starting.

Easy to find out... try to use your spare key
