I need help

83 gt 302 just got it yesterday. Was driving around town today after driving it the whole day yesterday. It was cold this morning when I started it but when I left it was sputtering in second. Thought it was just cold but then got to the light turned left and it shut off? Then started back up drive a mile and shut off again. I don't have a clue what it could be. I was told possible fuel pump but the guy told me it was just replaced. Any other ideas if this isn't it, like electrical? Thank you for you're help

Could be the tfi module. Those things cause it to die when they go out. Let the car cool for 10 minutes and you can get another 10 miles before it shuts down.

Sent from my massive johnson.

Don't feel bad I'm trying to learn my way around the engine too. Got outta high school and after shop class I kinda got distant with cars instead if keeping up at it. My first mustang did exactly what yours is doing and what it was is my fuel filter was bad and fuel pumps were drowning my engine out. I also made the mistake of taking it to ford to get it fixed. That'll never happen again big no no. Cost me 1300 for the fix. It's alot easier though bro if you ask for advice on here and do the work yourself, alot cheaper also these guys will give u walk through on everything you need to do so if you want to have the shop jus identify the problem and tow it back home it'll save you some $$

Well that's my problem I don't have a clue where the fuel filter even is or how to fix it. What is the best price you think I could get on a job like this? A local church friend price lol

There's two hoses you'll have to detach and a round bracket you'll have to loosen to pull filter out.

As for the price that depends on ur friend. Professionally it may run u between 130-150. Labor is what will cost you, the part is around $30 or $40 idk for sure

Nice. Once u get mustang fever it's hard to break. Don't think I could drive anything else. Still deciding on turbocharge or supercharge on my '91. 3.73 gears and 650 CFM carb is on my list next. But good luck on the fuel issue hopefully it helped keep us posted. Got any questions just ask

All you need is a to do is slide under back of car.the filter should be right on other side on gas tank.take a standard screwdriver and there will be a clip on both sides of the filter to hold lines on.tou should be able to get a filter for about $10 at any parts store.its a easy change

Yea it's the circular thing on top there should be a line running in the front of it with a brass fitting (I think it's brass?) and a hose connected to the fitting
