  1. V6 Tech
    Hello I am from Toronto. This is in regards to my automatic 2000 Mustang v6, 3.8L base model. I bought the pre-owned car in 2007 with 1,21,000 kms already on it. This January (2015), with temperatures in Toronto going in the negative and lots of snow, I had to go overseas for 9 months and I...

    Hi, I just bought a 2001 Mustang V6. It runs fine but when I insert the key, the "Battery" & "Service Engine Soon" lights come ON. But on ignition, they go off. I was curious if it was ON during the Diagnostic check or if there is actually some error code on the computer? Is it that only if...

    I started my vehicle yesterday and noticed it was a little sluggish and soon as I jumped onto the highway it started to stutter as I accelerated and the exhaust sounded muffled so I kept driving for a few minutes and then observed the Service Engine Soon light blinking so I pull over popped the...

    I have a 2004 v6. Recently my service engine light came on, I read it and it said system too lean bank. I looked that up online an found suggestions to clean the mass air filter sensor. When I asked a mechanic he said no that the display would say bank 1 and 2 put fool injector cleaner in it...

    My 1999 Ford Mustang GT has been experiencing some issues the past month. When I turned the AC or HEAT on, the car would sputter a little bit and every once in awhile when I would drive on the highway and pass 50mph it would jerk a little bit but those only happened once in awhile but yesterday...

    My 2002 3.8L V6 Coupe's Service Engine Soon light is on and also the Check Fuel Cap light is on. The code that was given was a PO455 (gross evap leak). I tried a new fuel cap, as my stock cap was pretty worn out. I reset the battery, but about 120 miles later the Service Engine Soon light comes...

    When I turn the key on (engine not running), I get the normal bulb checks, then the service engine soon icon flashes seven times and stays on. I could not find any info on this in the owners manual. Car has no mods installed. Thanks.

    So I was driving the other day and right away i knew something was different about my car. The exhaust sounded different, sputtering a bit, and the car was shaking more then usual (not the v8 kind of shake). Soon enough the service engine soon light came on and went away. It then came back and...

    Hi everyone, I recently bought my first Mustang for a Chevy dealer (ironic, I know). It had some issues but I got a good deal, 2002 Mustang w/ 59000 - $6600. On my way home it started to miss extremely bad, the air conditioning quit and the service engine soon light came on. I changed the spark...

    Hello I have a 2001 v6 Mustang. The "check fuel cap" light has mostly been on, off, and on for about 6 months. There's a leak where the fuel tank meets the fuel line used to pump gas into the tank. A Ford tech cleared the code, and the light remained off for months. About 3 months ago, the...
