Well if you've had it for 3 yrs and the odometer has never worked, you're looking at probably 160,000 plus miles and that's if it broke right before you got it (probably not the case). You could be closer to 200,000. The motor is probably low on compression due to being old and tired. I would say that's your starting problem.

The only fix for low compression is a new motor, so if it just takes two or three cranks to start, I'd just live with it. If its low on compression that would also explain the less than impressive performance as well. These motors will last a long time as long as you perform regular maintenance and do your scheduled tune ups.

Does it affect the starting issue?

Usually I would say that's a MAF sensor issue. The problem with running without your MAF hooked up is your computer goes into a default mode, a safe mode. Your computer cannot correct the air/fuel ratio based on the amount of airflow the MAF sensor is picking up, so you could be hurting you engine if your going out doing burnouts and stuff with it unhooked. Try cleaning your MAF sensor.

I'm sure there's something here on the site on how to test your MAF sensor, maybe in the stickies section. I always recommend checking before replacing it. I don't like spending money I don't have to.

Yes there should be something in the stickies for it.

The first thing I thought of when you said it sometimes doesn't start or cuts out when driving was check the battery cables. See if they are loose or corroded. When I bought my 95 gt the connectors to the terminals were all rigged up and loose. If I hit a bump right it would cut out for a sec and drive like **** or wouldn't start til I wiggled the wires. Just a thought.

Depends on if your on a phone or computer. I know the phone app you just go to the main forums page for the 1979-1995 mustangs and at the top there will be a link that's says stickies.

I'm having trouble following.... So it starts and then shuts off? Or starts fine and runs but shuts off later? Your original problem/post was about not starting sometimes like at school... It's still doing that too?

I would check all your plug wires to see if you have a wire arcing somewhere..... If you heard clicking it could be something ignition related.

What I'm talking about is your spark plug wires. Follow each one from the distributor to the plug and look or any signs of burning or exposed wire. Arcing is when you have electricity moving from one point to another.... Example... When you have your negative terminal hooked up then touch the positive to the positive terminal.... The sparks are when it arcs.

Could be, just check all your wires from the distributor cap all the way to the plugs. Would be a bad idea to check the boots where they snap onto your plugs, take them off and inspect them for tears or burn marks also.

A bad solenoid would not make your car shut off after it has started... All it does is send the signal to the starter for cranking.
