My 99 mustang will start and run for about 5 miles until the engine heats up then It starts to idle really low and shortly after that it will die and won't start up until I let it sit for a few hours. I need advice on what might be the problem.

The temp is fine but once the engine gets heated up to Normal temp is when it idles at about 300 then you try to take off and hit the gas and the car just dies. Then it will not start until you wait for it to cool down. And yes the coolant and radiator are filled.

Make sure you get the removal tool. Looks like this:

You can take your car to any AutoZone and they will read the codes, if any are given, from a check engine light.

If the 5.0 turns out to be too difficult. You could swap in a 4.2 easiest swap out there for the V6. Bolts right up and can use your stock heads and intake.

Difficult = too much $. Lol. It would cost u more for sure. And if u do a 5.0 swap you won't go with a 5.0 you would do a 331/347. Make that baby go!

If I was going to go V8 swap I get 5.0 then make sure everything works on it after the swap. And rip it out and throw a 351w in it. Wouldn't even have to stroke it. But you could stroke it out to a 408 or 427 if you modify the block.

Y waste the time and money on a 5.0 then? Go straight to the 351 then. Build with forged internals and twin turbo it.

Right before I was going to sell my car a guy in a mustang pulled up to me and we realized I have a blown head gasket and that's why I was having power loss. So I'm going to replace it and flush my fluids and then put new fluid in it.
