    So me and my dad are trying to get his 89 5.0 lx, which has been sitting since 07, running and on the road. He already knew we needed to replace the rusted fuel tank, pump, and filter. Did that. After we installed those things we tried to fire it up but struggled to and eventually the battery...

    Hi everyone, Back in 2013 I crashed my stang into a bridge barrier at 25 mph. (Hydroplaned / Oversteered). Unfortunately frame is bent, but only from the radiator bracket and just until the front wheel struts. Other than the body work, the only thing that broke was the radiator coolant bottle...

    t The past few times I tried starting my 66 Mustang(289,4speed), the starter was turning very slow as if I had low voltage in the battery. The battery tested fine. The last time I attempted to start it, it barely cranked and didn't start. I noticed some smoke coming from near the voltage...

    So, my 5.0 seems to be having difficulty starting the past couple of days. No issues with start-up until now. Yesterday I noticed that starting the car seemed to take 1-2 seconds longer than usual and the gauges all bounce/tick at the bottom for 3-4 seconds while the gauge lights flicker. After...

    I was leaving for work a couple day ago and my car wouldn't start. I got the cables out and it started first try. Then i noticed a tire went flat so i parked it to fix the tire. I couldn't get it started after that. Turn the key and click and lights dim. After trying to jump it off for a few...

    In the past I have had some issues with my ignition system. Mostly just the starter solenoid. Recently when I go to turn on my car the starter will get stuck. Not the solenoid, but the starter itself. It makes a very ugly clicking noise. Either it goes away after about 15 seconds or I have to...

    Hello all, I'm new to the forum, but I recently bought a used 2002 4.6L Mustang GT and I've been noticing a reoccurring issue. Whenever I try to restart the car after I have had it running and the engine is warm, the car will crank for a while and stumble to life, or slightly more rarely, the...

    I have a 1999 Ford Mustang V6. About 4 months ago, my car wouldn't start one day. It would turn over but wouldn't start. It had done this very soon before that day but would finally cut on after a few tries, but not this time. We ended up replacing the fuel filter and it continued to work fine...

    I daily drive a 1968 Mustang, and have come across a problem. Around 2 weeks ago my car started to act up. When putting the key into the ignition and going to start it, nothing happens. I know my battery isn't acting up because it's new and my car has power. At first I thought it was my starter...

    Hello, I've recently purchased a 1967 V6 3speed Ford Mustang and the car drove great without any noticeable issues. The car is stock. However, as of today, I had a hard time starting the car after leaving my local gym. The previous owner suggested that I turn the key and give the car a little...

    So I have a 1998 GT that has been having a hard time starting lately. It will crank for several seconds before almost sputtering to life. I read a suggestion that replacement plugs would help. I replaced those and they did need to be replaced, but the issue persists. So now I am trying to...

    Basically what the title says. When i start it up first thing in the morning everything goes fine and it starts up quickly. After driving and stopping, when i want to start it up again it gives me trouble. I'm new to this so I have no clue what this could be.

    1991 5.0 automatic Was hoping someone could shed some light on my problem. I filled up at my normal gas station and then my car wouldnt start. It turns over but was like there was no spark igniting the fuel. Had a friend look at it, but unresolved. He thought it was my fuel pump, so we replaced...
