  12. 1989 Mustang slow to rap after start

    5.0L Tech
    I have a 89 mustang lx and when i get it started it sets at real low rps ( 500 ish) before coming up to 1500 and settle back down to normal idle. Sometimes it doesnt take off but but will hit a few times then die. To me it feels like it might be dumping fuel. O2 going out maybe?

  18. 1996 Mustang 4.6 GT Starting Problem

    4.6L Tech
    My 96 GT isn't starting right away like it should, particularly after it's been running/driving. I have to crank it for a second or two, shut the key off, and re-crank to get it started. I hypothesize that it's a fuel delivery problem, perhaps a pinhole or crack in the fuel line. Has anyone...
