  1. 1996 mustang gt code P1443

    4.6L Tech

Also, when ever throttle is given, the car bogs at times, like not enough fuel or something, are these issues related? Also, not sure if this is true or...

    Hey everyone, I just made a similar post but I thought I'd start one slightly more relevant to the problem. My Autolite 1100 is making a really loud crackling noise at idle.
