    Good people, I need some help as I am not as wire savvy as I would like to be. 97 Mustang GT 4.6 SOHC It will start/run strong as long as it wants, it could be a day or it could be 3 months. Every now and then, when I put the key in and turn the power on I won't even get dash lights or I will...

    I have a '94 GT 5.0, and within the past month or so, my mustang has been having starting issues, in the mornings i get in, turn the key and it'll crank and crank and crank and finally it'll turn on. Sometimes i have to crank it 3 or 4 times in order for it to actually turn on, or when it does...

    My 1967 mustang has a 5.0 and t5 swapped in. When I try to start it there is the cranking noise like there should be but then there are a series of loud clanging noises. Any ideas?

    Recently I pulled my engine to change the manual clutch on my 65 mustang. While I had things disconnected, I installed a new electronic distributor. A couple of weeks ago I put the engine back in and tried starting the car. The engine cranked over and all the electrical systems were fine, in...

    Had a really dumb moment today.. Changed my negative battery cable out and my wrench touched the postive and negative posts creating a spark. I looked inside my car and my keys were not in it, but my radio and sub amp lit up...?I did install a new radio earlier but didn't have that issue.)The...

    I have a 1992 2.3L LX and am a first time poster. Background on my issue takes a minute, so bear with me... The front Cat. Converter had a hole in it and I had it removed as I had a 3-way converter for my rear cat and it's more efficient. Prior to taking it in to have the front cat removed, the...

    Hello everyone! I had my 66 Coupe running over the weekend (after about 3 years of sitting), but the exhaust gasket was blown, so I replaced it. I went to start it back up after the repair and it won't even turn over. I turn the key and it does absolutely nothing. I don't hear a click or...

    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?

    I have a 67 6 cyl, 3 spd manual, just installed factory carb w/ auto choke. Starts great, runs great, just about dialed in. However, if it ever stalls hot, it won't fire up unless I get out and manually close the choke plate, then it starts right up. Timing is dead on 6 deg btdc, checked...

    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...
