Plz help!

Ultimate question for all you mustang lovers out there. I've got a 98 mustang automatic. I just put a brand new radiator in it and it just had an exhaust repair. Every time it becomes hot outside she doesn't want to **** about 30 it feels almost stuck. It eventfully shifts but then it'll drop speeds and not wanna go. Eventually dropping all the way to zero. It also shakes. This only happens when it's above 65 degrees outside. I've tried just about everything.. If anyone has any idea plz help me

Check for leaks and also make sure the fan works.

It'll be hard to trouble shoot that one over the net, but it seems to me like you might have a fuel problem? ( bad injector (s) , possibly fuel pump or filter )

The fuel pumps on mustangs are notorious for going bad at about 65k to 75k miles.

Good luck and sorry you're having problems.

First clean little car.

So who did the curb rubbing you your rim?

Does it feel like it won't shift into different gears (transmission problem)?

Outside temperature of 65 is not very hot outside.

How does it run when just idling?

Check your fluid levels and find a transmission stop near your house. That may be your problem.

How long has this been happening?

If this just started recently, any chance of having purchased bad gas?

Have your run any fuel cleaners through your fuel system?

Not sure on what else to tell you to look. How about I send you Three Hail Marys and Cross My Fingers?

GOOD LUCK!

Mustang has 144000 miles on it so that might be it... But it runs perfect idling nothing wrong.. It does feel like it doesn't want to shift at all.. It'll ride on 2rpm then finally shift this has been going on for about 2 years I just try not to run it when it's to hot... Hoping it was just the radiator no such luck

Might be the bands on the transmission. It's good that's it isn't doing it while idling. Has it been doing this since you got the car?

It does sound the bands. I had that happen years ago. It'll have trouble moving.

+1 on the color of the fluid. if brownish, you should try changing the fluid and putting in a new filter.also, try Lucas transmission fix, have seen it work on many transmission in the past.

Yes that too. Most be people neglect changing the fluid and filter after 100,000 miles. Same with brake fluid and other fluids.

You have it drained and filled if its higher mileage and hasn't had regular flushes. People run into problems flushing with high miles because it knocks all the built up crud loose. And shortly after they find themselves needing the tranny rebuilt. You just need to stay away from a pressurized flush.

Yes if it hasn't been done before, I think that's what I forgot to add. So am I understanding this right, I still run the risk if I drain it after a 100,000 miles or is that just for the pressurized flush? I would think defiantly the pressurized flush. Thanks for bringing that up.

No risk in a drain and fill.
