Problems With Ford Mustang '95

I have a 1995 Ford Mustang GT with a 5.0 V8 302L Engine with an Automatic Transmission. Recently, my car has been experiencing numerous problems with the Engine putting. When you go to accelerate, you have to punch it to 3000 RPM to make the car run somewhat normal. What do you believe the problem is? Do you think is my fuel pump/fuel injector?

Re: Problems With Ford Mustang '95

Start with the simple stuff.....like fuel filter....check your plugs and wires also. Check all of your vaccum hoses for cracks/breaks and to make sure some have not came loose.

Re: Problems With Ford Mustang '95

Can you be more specific about what the car is doing? Is the engine stumbling, or does it take 3000 RPM to get the car to move? Reason I ask, a friend at work with an automatic had to rev up quite high to get the car to move. Reason? A clogged transmission filter. Pull the tranny dipstick and see what the fluid looks like. It should be bright red; if it's dark going towards black, you need to have the tranny flushed and refilled with new fliud & a new filter. Even if this doesn't fix your problem, it's a maintenance item that often gets overlooked.

Good point.....never hurts to do the regular maintenance. Things like tranny fluid and filter, fuel filter, all other fluids and filters.....should be checked and replaced on a regular basis, just like oil.

Re: Problems With Ford Mustang '95

I replaced the fuel filter and everything. No, it doesn't take 3000 rpms to make the car go. It takes 3000 rpms to make the car stop putting as much as it does. The car runs good going down the dirt road. When I hit pavement and hit the gas the car putts going under 3000 rpm and then when I punch the gas and hit 3 rpms the car stops putting.

Re: Problems With Ford Mustang '95

as said above, tune up time.

plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, injectors cleaned, maybe run seafoam in the car, distributor replaced, clean the MAF sensor and IAC sensor (idle by pass valve) and reset timing.

Re: Problems With Ford Mustang '95

I have figured out what was wrong with my car. I ran a scan and found out that the O2 sensor was bad. So I went and bought an O2 sensor for the right side and took it for a test drive. The car is now running great and I believe I have solved the problem! Thanks for your help!
