    I have a 1966 Mustang with a 6 cylinder manual transmission. Had sat in garage for 30 days without being started so I decided it was time to crank it up and drive it. Thought it would never start but finally did. I had left less than a half tank of gas in it so decided to go 3 miles to the gas...

    I am totally spent on this. It started friday afternoon on my way home from work. The car shifted into gear and all of a sudden started stuttering (fluttering, shuttering, ect). To me is was jerking around like the RPMs were too low. I came to a stop and ratcheted down to first. When I took...

    Hello, I have had a problem with my Mustang for quite a while now. The thing is, at low rpms, before 2k to be specific, it misfires. Its as if the timing is not correct. There is also the lack of power. The car also jerks back and forth, the engine sounds as if its spluttering. Another problem...

    I have a 2000 Mustang GT w/ a manual tranny and when under medium to high acceleration there is a bucking/surging, especially when going up hills. I just had Ford replace the fuel filter less than a week ago.

    There's nothing I can do right now with no money, but since I'm not sure exactly what problems the car has, it can't do any harm to get some opinions to figure it out. Transmission I believe the synchromesh is broken. I've read, though, that it's individual to every gear, yet shifting into any...
