  1. 2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Hi all. New to this site. As the title states, my 2013 GT/CS does this thing when I'm cruising at lower speeds and RPMs. When my foot is held steady on the gas, it kinda cuts out or backs off a little, then recovers quickly; happens about every 3 minutes or so. It seems to improve a little...

    2003. 3.8l v6 5 sp manual. So, my idle is right around 1000 rpm, but it will fluctuate slightly between 1100 and 800 while in neutral without me doing anything, i turn it on and it bounces, i dont mess with a/c or anything. Also at low speeds, generally while braking, it will randomly stall out...

    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...

    Hello everyone. I have a 1986 ford mustang gt. V8 5.0. It has several mods. Cold air intake, 70mm throttle body and spacer. Msd ignition/coil. It all started with a very bad idle, now in neutral it idles at about 100 to 300 rpms and blows black smoke out of the exhaust. Also sounds really...

    I have a 1998 mustang GT that is pulling numerous codes although most parts have been replaced. I'm out of ideas as to what to do next. It has been having fueling issues lately. The fuel pressure will be just fine, drop down to about 5 psi, stall the car, then go back up to where it should...

    I have a 66 Mustang 289 and I'm hoping someone can help me out with a problem. Around a month ago I was driving and my car was beginning to stall about 5-10 minutes in when driving. I thought it had something to do with my carb so I got that rebuilt (Edelbrock) and changed all my fuel filters...

    I have a 2006 Mustang GT with an automatic transmission and have been having an issue with this car going into reverse for a few years now. Nothing serious, but when I would put the car into reverse, every once in a while it would pause for a second before getting in gear and then it would...

    I have a 100% stock 2007 GT with 96k miles. I was a couple of miles from home and it just basically stopped (like you turned off a switch). There was no sputtering, it just basically died. The fuel tank was full, the battery is good. When I try to restart it, the engine fires for about a...

    Hi I've read many articles on this subject but I haven't come across my exact scenario yet. My engine normally idles nice for the first few stops around 600rpm when in gear and my foot is on the brake. However as it gets warm the rpms dip below 500 and eventually it stalls. It has a stock...

    When I start my car it kicks over and goes straight to 2000 rpms then goes down to about 1200 then after awhile will reach 800. It does this cold or warm. When I start it cold it will do this then Idle crappy at 400 - 200 rpm Sputtering like its going to stall shakeing etc. Its running lean...

    Hey- I just installed a Boss 302 intake manifold and CAI. I also did a Bama custom tune. The car runs great and I notice a huge difference - the only problems I am having is that the car seems to idle REALLY low and it eventually stalls while idling unless I rev the engine a little bit. The...

    I just rebuilt my carb, autolite 1100, and now have a problem. When I ease on the gas, all is well and I can go to high rpm. From a stop, if I try to romp or just give it a quick tap, it stumbles and dies. A little more info: my accelerator pump was squirting gas with the rebuild so I...

    I recently installed a new cam in my 1997 3.8L. The reccomended stall speed is around 3000 rpm. I'm trying figure out wether I need a lockup or a non-lockup torque converter. I dont know much about them. Any input would be welcome. Thanks in Advance.

    So I've put up with the occasional sputter on a hard turn long enough (its been doing it for about 2 months intermittently). I took the old girl down to the Ford Dealership this morning and explained the problem to them. 2 hours and $107 later the mechanic determined that i fell in line with...

    I have a 1997 3.8L V6 mustang. I just put ported and polished upper and lower intakes, heads, cam and, long tube headers on my car. My question is, what gear and stall combination should I go with? My car is obviously an automatic, and my current gears are stock. Since I installed these...
