  1. 4.6L Tech
    I picked up a beautiful 1999 GT Convertible this spring. I'm working on doing some routine maintenance to make sure it's running as well as it can, but I keep running into conflicting information on proper fluids/parts. For example, the owners manual says the proper fuel filter for the car is...

    My 2002 V6 4.8L Mustang is having some problems. It idles high for a while when it's starting up. And sometimes when I'm driving, something happens. It's very hard to explain. Me nor anyone who has felt it can really explain it. It reminds me of falling down the stairs, my grandmother of waves...

    My '95 sat for about 5 years in my garage while I went through some tough times financially. I got it running a couple of months ago but am having some major fuel issues. I left about a half of tank of fuel in car over that time and can only imagine what the tank looks like now. I do not have...

    So I've put up with the occasional sputter on a hard turn long enough (its been doing it for about 2 months intermittently). I took the old girl down to the Ford Dealership this morning and explained the problem to them. 2 hours and $107 later the mechanic determined that i fell in line with...

    I have a 2000 Mustang GT w/ a manual tranny and when under medium to high acceleration there is a bucking/surging, especially when going up hills. I just had Ford replace the fuel filter less than a week ago.

    All winter, if it's really cold, it takes a couple minutes of cranking to get it to turn over. Since this has started, I've changed the oil, spark plugs and wires, air filter, added heat and fuel cleaner additives, all to no avail. Today, I changed the fuel filter, and now my car won't start...

    This morning my car was running fine but this afternoon it started acting like it was out of gas. Kinda jumping /stalling? I was told it could be an air filter, fuel filter, oil low, fuel injecter? I changed the air filter, checked the oil, added a fuel system cleaner to the gas. It was a little...

    I just took off my fuel filter, and i noticed that it had an extra piece on the end of it. So it went, fuel line, fuel filter, "mystery piece" and then carb. The piece i belive is there so the fuel filter can be put on because it wont go on without it. so... when i was draining out the fuel...

    I got back from college for the summer and the battery was drained. I charged it up and started the car, after a couple tries it fired and ran for a couple minutes then died out. When I tried starting it after that, the electric motor would turn, making the clicking sound, but the engine would...
