Loss of power?!?

So for the last 2 days my mustang has been acting weird. Only when I first start it up and go Down The road about a mile an a half if I go to get on it hard to pull it feel as if it cuts out just slightly can hear or see it but feel it. I have a bama tuner and checked the codes and came up with a low coolent and a code p1000 <---- idk what that one is. Guys have any idea were to start before I start throwing parts at it, and replacing stuff I don't need. ** note: car only does it after it set over night, I can go to town do some shopping and it will be running fine on the way home no problem. Any tips will help thanks guys!

Re: Loss of power?!?

p1000 is a simple code that really is just used to let emission testing sites know if a vehicle is ready to test

Possible causes
- The vehicle is new from the factory.
- Battery or Powertrain Control Module (PCM) had recently been disconnected.
- An OBD monitor failure occurred before completion of an OBD drive cycle.
- PCM Detected Trouble Codes (DTC) have recently been cleared with a scan tool.

now the downside is that it could mean the cars issues are PCM related from the startup point which is what's putting the p1000 code up unless you're unhooking your battery alot
