    Hey guys, I'm new to the forums but am on my third Mustang. I recently bought a 2005 GT with 76k miles and I am loving it. I haven't had any problems whatsoever, but my temperature gauge is reading slightly hot. Instead of being at the halfway mark, when it warms up it goes to about the 5/8 mark...

    Ok, I know this has been beat to death and back again, but I've used that magical search button, tried every suggestion an I'm still having problems. I recently dropped in a 5.0 and retired the old 289. From the start I had problems with it running hot. I knew that she would be warm because the...

    Ok, so I finally retired the old 289 that the car came with and swapped in a rebuilt 91 5.0/302. Motor mount alignment SNAFUs aside, the swap went fairly smooth. Now that its in, the only problem I'm having is that the motor is running too hot for me. After market gauge says I'm hovering at 210...

    I have a 1995 Mustang GT stock everything. I started having overheating issues. It had a timing cover coolant leak and so I changed the timing cover gasket, water pump and placed all new hoses. Tomorrow I will flush it but it is still getting hot, especially when I turn on the A/C. Also have a...

    Help! My 1983 Mustang has a fuel injected 5.0 from a 1990 GT. Everything runs pretty good, and the car is a breeze to start when it's cold. However, if you park it at the store and come back in 15 minutes to crank it over and be on your way, the starter motor will usually make a lurching sound...

    My 1998 SVT Cobra has a stock 4.6L with 59,000 miles on it. It runs perfectly in normal conditions. I just got home from Virginia Int. Raceway and she ran hot while doing hard laps. No problem in the morning, but as the afternoon warmed up to 90 degrees, she started running hot. My new AutoGauge...

    So I want to know what is considered over heating and if I change the thermostat will it help? My current thermostat is a 195 (on my 66 c-code stock 289, with auto trans) The car idles at 195 when warm, and while the car is moving, but when its not moving it climbs up to 210 and then goes...

    To anyone who could shoot me in the right direction, My father and I have been slowy restoring a 1967 Mustang. It was sitting in my grandfathers backyard for 17 years I believe. The Radiator, hoses, thermostat, and thermostat gasket have been replaced. The car continues to overheat within about...

    Ok so here is the problem, sometimes my Mustang will run hot (about 3/4 up on the Temperature Gauge) and sometimes it will run normal (about 1/4 up on the Temperature Gauge) but it seems to be completely random as to when it occurs. I've already replaced all the coolant hoses, fluids...

    Ok, i had a new radiator, put in because i had a "incident" which messed up the factory one. Well today, i pulled up and asked my dad about why my muffler which kind of skips a little when revved real high. Well he revved it and we noticed it wouldn't rev past 4rpms. Like the timing was off or...
