  1. 4.6L Tech
    Hi All, The car would buck and stutter very intermittently over the last 5 years and would disappear before I could get it to a shop or get it up on jack stands but now the issue is constant. Hooked up a snap-on scanner and found no codes and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. So after...

    So this wideband and supercharger stuff has cost me a lot more than I expected, Im trying to cut back in places where I can. I have a procharger on my 4.0. Im getting a wideband air fuel, and a boost/vacuum. Im deciding between getting an oil pressure gauge which is half the price of a fuel...

    I purchased a 91 mustang 5.0. I have been having so many issues with it wish i didnt buy it. Anyway i keep getting code 41 and 91 so i bought a a/f ratio gauge to see what its doing. I hooked it to the passenger side o2. When i first start the car it sits on ideal but after 1 minute it spikes...

    This is my first time messing with anything like a turbo so I am a little lost. I just installed an on3 turbo on my 1990 mustang GT. Installed 255 fuel pump, 42# injectors, MAF calibrated for the injectors, super dynomax dual exhaust, 35 gap in spark plugs and will be putting in the tuning chip...

    So my 2001 is throwing a P0453 code and I'm pretty sure it's a faulty Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor. Before I go dropping the tank can anyone tell me if the Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor is located on top of (outside) the gas tank or inside the tank as part of the fuel pump assembly? Are there...

    I have a 2004 mustang GT with a Kenne Bell supercharger and several other mods including a boot a pump. The car has about 40k mi and has been well taken care of. I suddenly have a problem with excessive fuel pressure. The fuel pressure increases with engine temp. Normally runs 32 psi and...

    I have an 87 mustang gt, has bbk shortys and h pipe, 3.73s, converted to mass air. It idles fine and will run smooth if I baby it but if I try to open it up any then it will bog down real bad, my mass air conversion was just fine for about a month, so I don't think that would be it, I checked...

    Hey everyone, thanks for reading. Having trouble maintaining fuel pressure in my mild mod mustang. When I turn the key on, the fuel pressure gauge goes to 38lbs then dies down to 0. when I crank the engine the fuel pressure gauge flickers in between 0-10 lbs and cranks for about 5-10 seconds...

    Hey, My cars been running a little rich latly, for example I only got 180 kilometers to a tank. I checked my fuel pressure and im getting 45psi with the vacuum line off. With the vacuum line on im getting 40 psi. I think this is a little high but want to get a little input.
  14. V6 Tech
    I searched all over this forum and found some great tips but no straight answer so please help me. My 2001 v6 stang has 108k on the clock and when in neutral the engine has started to rev all by itself. It happens all the time and is all over the tach range. Sometimes its just a high idle...

    The car: 1993 GT 5-speed, mostly stock. Some typical bolt-ons: cold air intake, exhaust, pulleys, etc. The only major upgrade is a cam. Backstory (skip if impatient): Bought the car about a year ago. After a couple months, fuel pump went out. I replaced the pump, but not sock/strainer in...

    Alright...well the saga continues. I posted previously about possible distributor problems with my 88 GT causing it to bog and sputter when I "get on it." Turns out my distributor was of a full rotation. So I had that fixed. Unfortunately...it did not solve the problem. I just had a mechanic...

It starts easy but when i shift into first and get about 2000 RPM it starts to bog down. I have to keep under 2000 rpm through all gears to keep it from blogging down and shuting...
