Lost on what's wrong with my 'stang

Is there a possibility anyone can help me out as to why my mustang wont actually turn on. Yet the weirdest thing is it will start but it shutters and shuts off. First time stang owner rather get some knowledge for future ownership of 'stangs.

Had the same problem when my CAI kept falling off of my throttle body when I reaffirmed why computer regulated cars require a proper harmony of air, fuel, and spark. Checked your plugs & coils? What about the fuel pump depending on year and mileage? Check for a vacuum leak?

NP, I have heard of problems with vacuum lines being big issues with these cars of all years. Unless you're seeing sputtering lights or having a hard time cranking it over to be a problem with the battery or alternator; it sounds like some kind of an air ordeal imo.
