sputtering

  1. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Here is my solution for this problem. The car would sputter violently when pressing hard on the gas pedal or when driving on a steep uphill. I changed everything I could, TB, gas filter, gas pump, plugs, coils, cleaned the injectors, changed the MAF and what else I don't even remember. All that...

    Alright so I'm at a total total loss here. I've posted before about this car. '68 Mustang with a '73 302. A week ago I had to have the distributor all the way to the left touching my thermostat housing. After taking the rebuilt carb off, I noticed the economizer valve on the bottom of the carb...

    Hello All, It's my first time posting on here so please bare with me, I'll try to be as descriptive as possible. A month or so ago I was driving home and hit a pretty big hill, about half way up my car started to shake pretty violently under the increased load. It continued to hesitate and...

    I have a 1996 Gt with an exhaust and an intake. I had already driven my car all day and all weekend, hundreds of miles, without a problem. I noticed my car took a bit longer to start up after sitting for quite a few hours. The engine sputtered as it started up. It still ran fine all the way home...

    Just bought my 1st real Mustang - 95 GT Convertible! I had an 87 4 cylinder years ago, but have always wanted the 5.0. Everything stock, 126k on engine. Doesn't seem to have the power I expected. When under slight strain (uphill or lower speeds in 4th gear), hear a rattling sound (kind of...

    Okay, so... Very recently, I changed my spark plugs, my wires, and my coil pack due to the fact that I recently bought this car at 79,000 and I'm fairly certain that the previous owner did not, by any means, take care of this car. Well, since the throttle body was pretty gummed up and the...

    Hey guys hope everybody is doing good. So the weather broke, I got my 92 Notch out. The car started right up no problems, until I got going down the road. The engine started sputtering like it was running on seven cylinders. So I headed back home and ran a koeo test and a code 96 popped up (Fuel...

    So my car has been running like carp lately and I think it's because my computer is fried. I started by doing some diagnostics trying to get the o2 sensor readings, the passenger o2 sensor read .3 volts when I probed it and I went to the other o2 sensor and it read around 6 volts with the key on...

    I just bought this mustang less than a month ago and put in a bbk intake kit in it about 2 weeks ago. Ran flawlessly for about 2 weeks than started to take a turn for the worse. I turn the car on and it already starts ratteling. In idle it feels like it's going to break down and on acceleration...

    Ok so I have a 99 Stang with the 3.8L V6. Recently I had my mechanic replace the fuel pump because the car would not start. I did not replace the fuel filter, though. I was wondering if this was the reson why my car sputters or seems to want to die on me when idling. The RPM needle is pointing...

    I have a 1996 Mustang V6. This past Sunday my car broke down right after accelerating at about 3000 RPM. I have been experiencing many issues with a cylinder 2 misfire. I have spent almost $400 trying to fix it and nothing is working. When the car was breaking down, the car still ran but the...

    I recently bought a 68 Mustang GT with the 302, 3 on the floor. Since I bought it a month ago, I have put a new coil in it and converted the points over to an electric conversion kit that sits in the same distributer. It has a MSD 5 box wired into the coil which according to the wiring diagram...

    Hello Everyone. I have a 289 that has within the last two years had everything rebuilt or replaced. My problem is that out of the blue my car developed a starting problem. My car turns over and starts, but sounds pathetic as it idles. It is sputtering, shaking, and on the ground near the tail...

I'm currently in college and as such need my mustang to actually be drivable.(I know reliability can be an issue) after getting my car back about a week and a half ago it drove fine for a few days before starting to have issues accelerating when...
