  1. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Does anyone else have problems with their gas cap constantly going bad? Since ownership of my 2006 Mustang GT I have had problems where my gas cap takes zero effort to uncap, and I constantly have to buy new one ~6 months or so. I'm not sure if the caps from O'Reilly are just **** or what.

    I have an 06 mustang gt, auto and just had the fuel system upgraded with #60 injectors and the GT500 Dual fuel pump when I had my procharger installed. Went to the gas station (Shell) and the tank was just about on E. Filled up like I normally do but was only able to fill it about 3/4 full...

    Hi, I got my new GT and I've driving it for about 200 miles and while I love it, I have been getting about 8MPG without even driving it that hard (a heavy foot on the throttle here and there but nothing crazy). I was wondering how long does it take the coyote to even it self out when it comes...

    Hello everyone, friday as I was filling the tank in my 2005 mustang v6 4.0 automatic, I noticed that it left a puddle of fuel. I checked and didnt see any punctures in the tank or anything of that sort, also checked after driving it and no more leaks. Today I went to put more gas on it just to...

    Hello. I have a 1988 GT Convertible, 5sp, with about 104k miles. Overall, good condition. The problem I'm experiencing is that my mustang jerks/hesitates some during acceleration. This occurs when cruising along at..55mph for example in 5th gear...and I give it some gas to accelerate to...

    My 2005 v6 mustang's computer on the dash reads that I have only been getting 11 to 13 mpg. It has just over 100,000 miles on it. Is this normal? I don't drive it on the highways often and when I am driving it's with light stop and go traffic. I also don't let my car idle for longs amounts of...

    Hey all, I've been reading these forums for a long time but this is my first post! Here goes: I swapped out the stock intake for a non-egr explorer GT40 intake on my 91 GT w/130k miles. The power gained was significant, but after a while the engine began to run hot and my oil pressure...

    The fuel pump has failed and needs to be replaced. The fuel tank is about half full and needs to be drained and removed. The "just siphon it out" answer is not helpful. What size hose is required and how do you insert it to the bottom? A half inch light plastic hose was difficult to insert...

    I bought a fuel tank kit from mustangs unlimited. Should I paint the bottom of the gas tank before I put it in, in order to prevent rust. Also what sealant should I use to put the gas tank in?
  13. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    So I am out of ideas, and need any suggestions. I have a 2005 Ford Mustang 4.0 convertible, and it takes about 2 hrs to put 10 gallons of gas in it. Now I have read about the saddle bag TSB & the erratic fuel gauge TSB , I know for a fact it is neither issue. No mechanic wants to look at it or...

    I drive my mustang on a daily basis, and usually when I press the gas somewhat towards the metal, my automatic car usually shifts down and I get the boost of acceleration I always get, but lately it seems to be hesitant on the acceleration even when I press the gas all the way down, it doesn't...

  16. V6 Talk
    Hello all, :) I'm new to this site, and I was wondering what the average mpg is for users on here who drive v6 mustangs? I purchased a v6 rather than a GT hoping the gas mileage would be better, but now a few people I know have early 2000's GT's that get better gas mileage than my 2003 v6...

    Hey everyone. Searched around and all I could really find is "change your driving habits". I'm not expecting great gas mileage but I feel like mine is lower than it should be. Best mileage I've gotten is 16 MPG. Regardless of highway/city percentage and driving style. heavy on the throttle I'll...

    I have a 1999 Ford Mustang V6. About 4 months ago, my car wouldn't start one day. It would turn over but wouldn't start. It had done this very soon before that day but would finally cut on after a few tries, but not this time. We ended up replacing the fuel filter and it continued to work fine...

So my problem is i put roughly 8 gallons of gas in it so far and the guage has moved some but has only gone to the first line from the "E" on the guage. I pegged the...
