My mustang 10v6 having issues in starting early in the morning or anytime i start it after a long gap of time. When i crank it it starts immediately but after some seconds it behaves like its running out of fuel. my fuel tank is always at full! Then later it shows a wrench light on speedometer. If i dont put my foot on gas pedal its dieing after a while. This usually happens quite often nowadays with me. I have recently changed engine oil+transmission oil+filters last month. Have changed spark plugs+airfilter 1.5weeks before. I dont know what else should i replace. Car is at 81k now & out of warranty. I am from United Arab Emirate (Abu Dhabi).....any usefull advice is appreciated also if anyone cud suggest good tuner for Mustangs here in Abu dhabi. It wud be a great help. Thank you

Suggest that you invest in a obdII code reader. If you already have one, disregard my suggestion. It will help with your diagnosis of problems, and is relatively inexpensive. I purchased mine on Amazon for around $35 US dollars. I've seen them on Ebay for around $15 and up.
Good luck with your diagnosis.

Thankx. but yes i didn't think about to change the fuel filter. i will probably go to the mechanic later in evening. but just as per some suggestion from the various people. (i have cleaned the entire throttle body last night even the air flow sensor. it was dirty so cleaned that also but still in the morning no such luck)ive noticed this morning more accurately when the car is dead cold its not starting or just got start & dead on same time, but once the car is hot (when temperature needle is in middle) it runs smooth idle (no jerk no nothing)

I have a elm 327 as a backup to my plug in model. It works with the Bluetooth on my cell phone, using an application from my application store. I have seen lots of reviews where folks complain that they don't work with their Ford vehicles. Suggest that you read the reviews prior to purchasing. Also, if you order from Amazon.com, you can return it without a problem if you have Amazon Prime.

I finally figured out the problem 0:) it is due to bad & clogged IAC so i cleaned it with throttle Spray, i also then clean MAF & entire throttle body. now the Stang is starting on half key. (thank God)
