Car telling me something?

Car is stock as in engine mods. Just the other morning I started my car and noticed all the indicator lights(check oil, fuel, low coolent, fill window fluid) where on for a few seconds....then they came on and off while driving to the mane road....then this morning same thing.. except it also does it when I push the clutch in and give a little rev they will appear.

It may be a week charging system. I had the same problem on my sisters Volkswagen and it was the alternator. It would flash all the idiot lights every now and then then one day it just died out on the highway. I charged it and drove it 10 mins then battery light would start flashing and it would be like a giant rc car lol. I just bought a replacment regulator with the new brushes for 30 bucks and it fixed her problem. Not shure if that's your problem but it won't hurt to test the altornator. Also check your grounds they are notorious to go bad on our cars.

Alternator most likely. The 2G alternators on the fox bodies aren't even enough for the car stock and if it starts to degrade even just a little you'll get charging issues. Good practice for anyone with a fox is to upgrade to a 3G alternator out of a newer car. Will fix all your power issues and allow you to run underdrive pullies without problems.
