1995 Mustang, need help! ):

I have a 3.8L v6 mustang, its having a problem and I need help to fix it :/ . I drive my car to empty so I would get all the bad gas out of it... I know, stupid thing to do. But I filled her up with 93. Now she doesn't want to run, it stalls when I tap the gas, floor the gas or try to rev... But when idling works fine. I replaced the plugs, wires, clean my coldair filter, and replaced the fuel filter... And still not better.

Can ANYBODY help me pleeeeeeease :/

Well it's probably not the best idea to switch gasoline types this late.

I'd check for spark....perhaps a bad coil pack ....or maybe the alternator is crapping out under load.....

If you let it run completely out of gas it's more than likely your fuel pump. Dosn't matter if you had replaced it before. When you run out of gas there is nothing left to cool your fuel pump so it burn up.

First off don't use 93 unless your tuned for it. Second running empty will kill your fuel pump. Third just because you changed something doesn't solve the problem if what you changed wasn't the problem it only covers it up

I didnt say just because I replaced it before means that's not it. I'm just hoping thats not it. Don't feel like dealing with that again.

It sounds like either clogged injectors or a major vacuum leak for the injectors go to napa auto parts and ask for fuel injector rebuild kits and to check for a vac leak spray carb cleaner behind the upper intake and if it picks up you know that's the problem and also fill up with midgrade fuel

I do have a vacuum leak which I've had for a couple months now. Didn't think anything of it, it's gotten worse I'll look into that. Thank you!

Just to let everyone know, I cleaned my MAF, throttle body and Coil Pack, and what do you know... She runs <3 so i know that doesn't mean what ever was wrong is fixed but it buys me more time to save up money.
