    I am trying to troubleshoot an issue I'm having with the power windows in a 1998 convertible. all windows have power except for the Driver quarter window. when the motor is unplugged, the reading is 11.97 volts. When the motor is plugged in, the reading won't go over .32 volts. I test at both...

    Hello. I am looking to replace the heads and intake on a 1998 3.8 and I know the 99 3.8 Had a larger throttle body, the split port intake and better flowing cylinder heads. Aside from cabling and sensors, are there any major issues as far as bolt pattern, water passages, pushrod length/lift that...

    My 1998 mustang gt does not like to start right off. busts over just fine if it has been running but not when you let it sit for a few hours. She runs great, no issues there. In the last two months ive replaced the alternator, starter, all pulleys and drive belt, ac compressor, spark plugs...

    Hello all, I've been chasing a problem with my 1998 v6. Sometimes(mostly cold starts) when I start the car it makes a grind for a split second, it's almost like your trying to start the car when it's already running. The car did sit pretty much the entire winter and we had a bad one, so I'm...

    Alright I'm looking at heads from a 2005 Crown Victoria to go on my 1998 Mustang GT to do the PI swap. My question is will these heads work and are they Romeo heads? In other words when actually doing the swap can I follow the parts and guidelines for installing Romeo heads rather than Windsor...

    Hello, i have been having some problems with my 98 gt for the last 6 months, the battery keeps dying on me after 2-3 days of no use. I've replaced the alternator and battery, i do know its a draw some where but instead of spending a lot of money trying to find it i figured a switch will do the...

    Hey guys I wanted to ask about how I would go about improving loudness and sound quality in my 98 mustang without breaking bank, I'm not looking for car shaking bass, thanks. Also everything is stock inside. I don't have much experience with music systems so again thanks for the help.

    Ok, So I am new to this forum, and am very ignorant when it comes to my car, especially electric issues, but wanted to put my question out there. I have a 98 mustang gt. The Battery has been draining, and it will only start when jumped. The problem started about two weeks ago, then it was fine...

    Hi guys I just recently entered the mustang brotherhood. Bought a 98 Mustang GT Dark Satin Green. Strictly stock for the time being at least for the next couple months before I look into a cat-back system and some other minor bolt-ons.

    Hello guys, I'm new to the forum and I have a few questions, I will ask in separate threads of course. I have a 1998 V6 Mustang. No real mods yet, just a CAI and a flowmaster 40 muffler on the stock exhaust system. I also got a set of GT rims (17x9) all around. I plan on replacing the 7.5 rear...

    I recently replaced the fuel filter on my 1998 3.8L V6 and now when I turn on the air(vent or a/c) I smell gas. I'm pretty sure I replaced the fuel filter correctly and didn't have any problems. I took the old one off and clicked the new one back in. Any help is much appreciated, Thanks, Michael.

    My mustang wont start first try usually. I'll crank it over for a few seconds and it wont start, but the second try it starts everytime within the first couple turnovers. The only exception to this is if the car has been running within the past few minutes, then its starts first try. Any help is...

    I am new to AFM and look forward to sharing information about our similar interest. I recently purchased a 1998 Mustang, V6, all stock. It is going to become my project car and I anticipate a lot of discussions on here to make sure it is done right.

    In my girlfriend's 98 mustang, when she is driving the fuel gauge never stays still. I think it is the anti-slosh screwing up, but I am not sure. When she drives uphill the needle dramatically rises, and when going downhill it fleets towards empty. Normally this would not bother me, but she...

    I have a 1998 Ford Mustang GT 4.6liter, with the 4R70W transmission. My problem is an intermittent delay of up-shifting from gears 2-3. There are slight patterns that I have noticed, that can affect how this problem occurs, or doesn't: If I use VERY light gas peddle, literally just...

    I was just wondering if it was possible to put IRS in my 98 mustang and if so is the IRS in 02-05 explorers compatible?

    I searched on the forums for this but all i found was a gt pedal too stiff. I have a 2002 engine 2000 5-speed and 1998 body and my clutch seems to not fully engage. It did engage with the 98 engine and 2000 5-speed so Is there a way to adjust the clutch cable ? I looked at firewall i don't have...
