95 V6 Dying

Ok, I have a 1995, V6, 3.8, Mustang. It's the one in my pictures, has about 145000 miles. It runs great in winter, almost perfect. But now that it's summer, and I live in Las Vegas, all of a sudden ill be driving and the car will start idling like its a washer off kilter. Then it won't go anywhere if I try to push down on the accelerator, and then it'll die. I just got this from my dad, it's my first car, and I'm just starting to learn about Vehicles. Please help!

Same thing is happening with my 2002 stand it dies like that only when it gets hot but it I'll turn it back on and it will be fine for 5 min then die again
I replaced coil pack
Spark plug and wires
Crankshaft sensor
IAC
CCRM
MAF SENSOR
Fuel pump and fuel filter
Thing that's sucks most is I went with (just to be safe) motorcraft on all these parts.
Almost about everything and still doing it
And I notice it does it when I turn on air condition more
But I talked to my mechanic and he said he has to do with fuel cuz when I run it for a while it will be fine going bout 35 psi of fuel
Then when he gets hot and I'm trying to push on gas farther down it gets 5 psi

So I'm thinking it's a sensor getting hot or something so maybe something electrical cuz it starts right back up fine so I'm going to change PCM module to see where that gets me

Try changing the idle control valve or ur throttle position sensor or try flushing ur cooling system n replace the 50/50 coolant and water ratio to 75coolant and 25 distilled water or coolant additives that'll help the engine keep cool a little better

Hopefully that works, I'll let you know. If it doesn't I'm going to trade this for a GT or something else.

I'll do that, thanks. This is pretty much a project car, so I'm trying to work it out. The drivers side mirror (actual glass piece) fell off and it's crudely shoved back on. When I make turns or go drifting with the car the passengers side creaks. If you can help, I'd be eternally grateful.

First things are look for a vacuum leak, do a tune up, main thing ring replace your spark plugs. If they haven't been replaced that could easily be it. Also look into getting a new coil pack. It's nothing bad with ur v6 I wouldn't think. Thing still has a lot of miles left in it :$
