my pony is shaking

So my wifes been driving my mustang as of late. She told me the car wasn't running right and that it was shaking when on the gas. So I toke it for a spin and it did it in fouth and fifth gears.I know I need to replace the air temperature sesnsor. Would that couse the car to shake like that and its getting worse. I checked the plugs and I need new ones soon but they aren't to the point they need replaving right away. I checked the gap on them and they was all gapped over .070. So I regapped them to .054. I went on a teat drive and its still doing it. Any ideas or in put would be great.

Misfire. Check your coil pack and wires

I'm slowly going throw everything on the car. I keep finding lil stuff other people over looked that needs replacing. About to do a full tune up oil plugs wires air filter wire everything. If I sea foamed it would that help with restoring a few lost ponys.

Good idea. If you have the extra money, replacing your coil pack might be a good idea too. Sea foaming it definitely cleans out the intake if you put it through a vacuum line and put it in the gas tank to clear out the injectors. Also get a new fuel filter and get the transmission serviced. It's a whole different car after fluids and tune up

If you have a manual obviously no need to get it serviced

If you do your coil pack I suggest the msd street fire coil pack. Cheaper than the motorcraft one, but better. I replaced a brand new motorcraft pack with one and couldn't be happier. I didn't expect much, so it was a pleasant surprise.

1/3 in the gas tank, 1/3 in the brake booster, and 1/3 in the crank case. Do this about 100 miles before your next oil change. Give it 15-20 minutes after you got it all in before you start it back up and blow all that crud out.
