Simple checks include checking the glove box light (if equipped) to make sure it's turning off and disconnecting any aftermarket accessories the prior owner may have installed.
After wards, if you still have a draw, you can usually pin point the cause by removing the fuses one at a time with the negative terminal disconnected and a test light across the bat terminal to the cable (be sure to close all of the doors when checking the test light).
A draw will lite the test light - when the draw is eliminated, the light will be extremely dim or out.

Good thing about those old mustangs is if your oil pan is the one that's leaking you do not have to pull the motor just to take the pan off.So that's basically easy.as for the transmission.it could be just the pan for it as well.Easy fix.now for the backfire.Could be a valve that is stuck of even a timing chain that has jumped.
Might be too advanced.Easy fix.just remember when your car backfired im sure you blew a power valve in your carburetor.
Those carbs can basically be rebuilt while it sits on the car.
Those old mustangs are easy to work on.My dad had plenty of them when i was growing up.So I am very familiar with them.

i have a 1967 mustang. !!!

well if its shooting out explosions of the exshaust you shouldnt even turn it on. you should just take it to a mechanic and get it fixed. your timing chain is probally not right. and if so you can blow out your engine and the car wont be worth anything anymore.

and i dont think the leaks will be too hard to fix. some times you can just buy a chemical that will stop leaks. i blew a gasket on my headers of my truck and i just fixed it with a liquid.
