    TLDR: Replaced IAC and cleaned throttle body and MAF to stop erratic idle, and it worked for a little while, but two days later my throttle is getting stuck closed, car is shifting into 3rd at around 30mph and doesn't downshift until I come to a complete stop, causing the car to stall out. Help...

    Hi everyone, I have been Reading a lot of advice on here for a while but never have had to post. Here is the problem I am having. My mustang runs perfectly right until I shut it off for any given reason. Let’s say I drive it and all is fine but when I go to get gas or go buy something really...

    I read through several threads here over the last few days trying to fix my idle issue and finally think I got it. I want to pay it back by listing what happened and how it (seems to) have been fixed. I'm not terribly knowledgeable about mustangs, in fact my truck is a 73 toyota FJ40 with a 92...

    I just recently installed a 73mm vortech maf on my car. I put a 24lb. sample tube on it, and when i went for a test drive the car felt like it had no power. If i gradually give it gas, it would rev fine, but when i floored it the car just sputtered and made a weird noise and didnt want to go at...

I have heard from several people that i can move my MAF to the inlet side of the SC ijust want to make sure. I...

    Hey all, I'm completely new to the mustang world as of monday afternoon and have some concerns. I have an 87 notchback that was a 4cyl conversion to a 5.0. My main concern is identifying the motor that was swapped in. It had an "HO" badge plate on the top of the intake manifold but doesn't have...

    So when I turn on my car it comes up to 1400 rpms and slows drops to 800 where it hangs out until I choose to use the throttle. It is fine at stop lights and it pushes a lot of power very efficiently. After about 15 minutes of driving though it will occasionally 'want' to die when I decelerate...

    I have done some reading in the past about whether hot wire type maf sensors are controlled by a specific relay or does the wire heat up from the voltage bein supplied by the computer?I know there a couple of relays near the maf sensor( one being the wot relay ) then there are a few behind the...

    Forgive me if I'm in the wrong place. I'm new. I have a 1996 3.8 V6 and was wondering, could I remove the freeze plugs from the upper plenum and run a couple tubes from the two plug spots to the Hood inserts to act as a sort of cold air intake? I've heard they would both need MAF sensors and...

    My car (1994 mustang 3.8l) has a rough idle and no power until about ~2200 rpm. I already cleaned the MAF and IAT, replaced the fuel filter (whoever owned the car previously had the fuel filter on backwards), checked the spark plugs and plug wires, and cleaned the throttle body. I was viewing...

    I just purchased a 1987 LX 5.0 and it has a fuel delivery issue (I think). IT will start after having to pump the fuel pedal multiple times until it tries to start... then I turn the key off and try to start it again. It starts right up and runs for about 30 seconds at which point it sputters...
