Sounds like it is bleeding down fuel pressure. Could be a leak in the system, or a leaky injector.
Also, check the relay and ensure it is not sticking.

If your fuel pump is not shutting off after 2-3 seconds that sounds like a bad fuel pump relay.

Not sure if this is related, but i have a problem that i assume is fuel related. I just got a new '89 5.0 GT 'stang after 4 deployed years of wanting. The previous owner before me let it sit for over a year. The mid pipe was rotted, the headers where clogged, the oil was black, no coolant, etc. The poor 'stang overall was in bad shape. Replaced the entire exhaust system, replaced the intake, new o2 sensors, new mass air sensor (the old one was bent and broken), changed oil, replaced spark plugs, removed some emissions hoses (they were blocked off anyway by the previous owner and were now just sitting on top of the new headers). Unfortionately, now i have a new problem. At first, the car would start up and have great pull up until about 15 minutes of driving. Then it would bog badly (noticable after 2k rpm). After about a week of searching and going to and from work, the problem escalated to now occuring as soon as i start up the car. The other thing i notice is that whenever i would lose power, I would hear a noise similar to a fan blowing coming from the engine (haven't been able to find where it is coming from). What could it be? I'm going to end up taking it to a mechanic if i cannot figure it out soon, i can't loose many days of work for this. And it would suck if i couldn't figure this out.

thx

After checking it out, found out that the fan blowing is the clutch fan that just blows constantly. Not sure if i should unplug the battery and leave it unplugged. Going to replace the fuel filter today and clean the injectors, but i still believe i might have a thermostat problem. The temp reads low and doesnt' change much at all.

ok my problem was that the fuel pump was clogged . it had all crap in it. But i replaced wit a holly 190lph and i changed the fuel pump relay. Alos ur spark plugs u should gap them at .05 and ur problem would be fixed. Also if i were u i would replace all the filters and fluids like tranny and power sterring and rear diff.
