    I've had my 2000 Mustang 3.8l for a few years now, it ran great until you got into the higher RPMs. It would have bad hesitation, when it got hot outside it would even die sometimes. so i took it to a performance shop to go get my car tested to see what was going on and they told me my fuel rail...

    I have recently installed a crate 302 engine in my 1967 Mustang Coupe. While the installation seemed to go fairly seamless, I think I am having an electrical issue. After starting the car, I must keep the RPM above 1000, or the engine will just die. This happens even after the engine has warmed...

    I was driving around today and all of the sudden my car started making some weird noise. I thought it would be my breaks, like when you don't apply the breaks all the way and your car starts to move and you can hear the rotor slide and the pads are still making contact. The noise was not loud...
