Fuel injection problems? or what??

I have a 96 Mustang with a 98' V8 in it. I believe it has around 150,000 miles or more. I have no clue really because the odometer went to crap before I got the car. I have NO clue how it was driven before me but I'm gonna completely restore it if i can throughout the year. Anyways, Everytime I try to gas it up from 2nd, 3rd and 4th, the whole car starts shaking and it sounds like theres sputtering in the exhaust. I don't know if thats fuel injection or what but I Just put some fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank so it'll take a bit for That to work. But if it isn't that, WHAT IS IT!! Its driving me crazy that i get maybe half the horsepower or maybe a little more. Please help guys. I would Really like to know without paying someone to diagnose it and give me a ton of things wrong that i don't need to know because I already have a list. THANKS!!!
