Question Noise accelerating

Hi, I'm new to this forum and eager to learn a little more about mustangs. I recently bought a 95 mustang V6 and I'm facing some problems. Every time I step on the accelerator there's a little noise, kind of like a hissing noise. It only happens when I step on the accelerator, when I let go the noise goes away completely. The car seems awfully slow, and if I step on the gas it takes forever to accelerate. I just had a fuel pump put in since the car stalled on me the other day and would not start again, this problem seems to be fixed now. By the way it has automatic transmission. I was wondering if anybody can give me some clues on what this noise could be and also the lack of power?

Thanks again.

is your AC on?


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

nope, not at all. Something else that I noticed today. When I was driving around 50mph the gear just switched to neutral, at least that was my impresion. I try to accelerate and all it did was to rev the rpms but the car wouldn't accelerate. When I stopped the car completely I was able to drive it again.

fluids are good. I was wondering if there's any kind of computer that sends some kind of signal from the engine to the transmission. it seems like I can never go to 3rd gear.

Not on the 95's it's totally mechanical.

How many miles are on the car?

108000 miles. I thought it might be an engine problem instead of transmission.

hard to say, can't diagnose a noise I can't hear, and the 3rd gear thing is suspicious.
