    So I have a 97 GT with a start / no start issue. I can drive it around days at a time with no problem, it starts every time. Then some days, it will refuse to start at all. The days that it doesn't start, I checked for fuel pressure at the rail, and nothing. Sometimes this spell will only last...

    Hello, I have had my 1995 Gt for a couple of years now and it has been great. Recently I have had problems with it starting though. It will crank but will not switch over. The weird thing about it is that it only happens randomly. Some days it will start up like a dream but then the next day out...

    I ran to the store and when I came back out to go home she wouldn't start. In the "accessory" position the lights/radio came on, but as soon as I tried to start the car I lost all power. Somebody tried to jump start me, and it still didn't even give me any lights. I have absolutely no power; no...

    Today, I drove my 1998 Mustang GT 4.6 V8 for about 10 miles. I shut off the engine with the A/C on. I then got back into the car and started the engine with the A/C set on high. The engine got a really bad start and would not idle above 1,000 RPM. I would give it gas and the RPMs dropped below...

    I'm not familiar with fords and I recently was given a 1983 mustang turbo gt with the 2.3 and 5 speed transmission and it wont turn over. It will turn over if I jump the starter relay(which I know isnt good) but It wont turn over if I use the key in the ignition.I think it's the neutral safety...
