I am having issues with my 2000 Mustang. It will start and idle just fine. Will also run fine when you rev it up but if i try to slowly press the gas, in gear and nuetral it will act as if it is going to stall. Any ideas on where I should start??
#123 of 130 mustang mileage
Apr 16, 2011 (5:10 pm)
2011 V6 coupe,6sp manual, 3.31 gear. 3500 mi. on car, 1000 miles on replaced engine. I am somewhat disappointed in the mileage on this car. I have the perfect test track at my disposal, I-80 in eastern Iowa. Cruise on, apx. 60 mph I agree the car will achieve the claimed 30 mpg. Shortly after hitting the secondary roads and driving as conservatively as possible I watch the mpg's take a drastic plunge down to apx, 19 (as rated). There is no in between. Any stop-go, shifting or anything but 6th gear uninterrupted cruising results in terrible results. Is this the norm? It would be impossible to drive anymore conservatively than I do. Thanx for any input.
#124 of 130 mis-fire in piston 3 and running rich
Apr 29, 2011 (7:56 pm)
I have a 94 mustang with a 3.8. It has been knocking and bucking. Changed the plugs and replaced wires. Checked Ignition control module and changed out the coil pack. When I get it running it smells like pure gas is coming out of the exhaust and really thick blue smoke. The oil on the dip stick smells like gas. Any suggestions?

Sounds like It may have jumped time and fouled number three plug, how many miles on it over 100,000 miles check the timing.
#126 of 130 At traffic light engine gets hot & a/c blows warm
Jun 30, 2011 (12:27 pm)
Girlfriend's 98 Mustang has cooling system gremlin. Only on the way home from work after freeway driving she stops at a couple of traffic lights, the temp creeps up to 3/4, her a/c starts blowing warm, and she says the car "surges" once. This has happened multiple times.
I've flushed the cooling system. Radiator fan is running. Replaced thermostat. Could the belt be slipping without squealing and the charging system light coming on? (Her 'stang has a battery meter; hopefully an idiot light, too.) Thanks for any ideas as to what's causing this.

you amybe having the first signs of a head gasket problem, you air conditioner has sensers that will shut it off but I dont know if that would cause your problem of over heating. With the engine cold open the radiator and watch to see if there are alot of boubles that you should not see normally,if there is alot it could be exhaust blowing into your radiatorwhich means a blow head head gasket.

I have a 2000 Ford mustang, 3.8... Ever since i bought it a year ago, it has this proplem of vibrating. Im not sure if its from a miss fire or timing isnt right. I put new motor mount nd change one of the exhaust manifold that was licking and it help a little, but it still vibrating. Also it eats up an excissive amount of fuel. The engin light is on, but when scan it only show one fulty code, witch is the secondary air flow not wright....

Had my 2005 V6 Mustang heads redone with inserts. Now cylinder 4 in missing on cold start. Anyone have any ideas on why that would be happening? Its been in the shop for months and they cannot figure it out.
