Hard to say, that could be a bad filter, plugs, dirty injectors. It sounds like it had something to do with getting gas, i know when gas station get refuelled all the gunk in the bottom comes up. I would run a good fuel cleaner thru for starters and see

I guess I'm going to start working down the list but I'm going to start with bad gas seeing if that's the problem

But i would say start by running a fuel system cleaner thru, clean the MAF sensor and if that doesnt work replace the fuel filter. If its still having probs at that point it might be worth it to just take it to a shop

Sounds like what i had. Makes it sound cammed and it actually moves the car like you are cammed hard. Mine got fixed with a battery and alternator change.....at least for now it hasnt done it. Also what codes are popping up there jas to be atleast p1157 p0135 p0174 p0171 and such i believe with that condition. Let us know what codes pull up just get a free code read from autozone and word to the wise dont listen to them about "fixes" they offer they are cashiers not techs with ase certifications. Start with the codes first so we can pinpoint or atleast help pinpoint a solution

My gf went to the part store for me cause I work late and told the guy that she thinks I have bad gas so he gave her Seafoam but I see peoples videos they have their car running when using Seafoam but my stang won't stay running long enough

ok first i see that your check engine light has been deleted. now the question comes have you done anything mod wise to the car, i.e intake, throttle body such and such. one thing you can try is to reset your ecu or rather reflash it in a sort. unplug the battery for about 15 min, then plug it back in and run the car see what happens then, if it runs i would suggest taking it to the nearest autozone to read the code. as to the seafoam i wouldnt do it for now due to we want to know what codes are being displayed to find a solution, since it could be from a fuel pump to a idle air control valve, that is how mine sounded before.

Hey bud just by listening to the video I really not sure but I saw that the cold air intake needs to be looked at, and make sure it's buttoned up tight. But really I would start at the fuel filter after that. If one was put on backwards it would cause that, happened to me from being in a hurry? Sill yet man I really would not sweat it it doesn't look to bad plus it drove just fine before that.

Here's is a good sign that a fuel pump is bad or going bad. If you go to take off and the car falls on it face like its running out of gas. That's a very good sign!

Sounds likes its crammed lol! The car is so rough I would almost say I herd a misfire also? It's hard to tell but my car did this to man so it is common. I would agin start with make sure air/fuel is right by making sure everything is buttoned up. (no exhaust leaks, no vacuum leaks, or CAI leaks). Then I would start at the fuel filter, plus check plug gap and make sure coil packs are in good shape. You know if the little rubber boots comming off the coil packs them selves, have any cracks in them then they will ground to the head and cause a miss fire...

When I was having problems with misfire that's what mine sounded like. I would pull your plugs and see if there is moisture down in your plug ports. This was my problem due to a cracked intake, coolant was leaking onto my heads and down onto my plugs. Not saying this is your problem, saying it sounds like misfire. You may have fouled out a plug, have a bad wire, or maybe a bad coil. Good luck, keep up posted.

Well good news everybody I have figured out my problem

IT WAS THE COLD AIR INTAKE yes the right the cai

I'm so happy right now that my mustang running right as soon as I cranked her and she cranked right up after I had to fix the cai because it had do unbolted I reckon with I put it on I didn't tighten it up good enough where it had fell out the rubber piece but I didn't see it at first because the top piece was still on the half on the intake but the bottom was out giving a big gap to mess up my car but not big enough to see it right off hand

your very welcome, glad to know it was a simple thing like the intake, and nothing major like most of us had lol. good to know your car and the problem was solved im glad i couldve helped in any way.

btw as to the check engine light, it may just be as simple as a bulb was removed or that the bulb burned out, your gonna need to remove the cluster and check behind it to see if its a burnt bulb or removed, if i remember its a t15 or t20 for 4 screws that hold the cluster down, remove the face plate around the cluster first, and careful when removing the harness from the back as well as pluging them in.

I would not even do that I would just look under the car for mil eliminators that will hook up to the secondary o2's.

Matt if you haven't noticed on both videos a check engine should have came on. Even for the intake problem it would have thrown p0174 p0171 and maybe some other o2 codes like 1157 for the intake since its air that is being unmeasured since its getting it after the maf sensor. And on the other video he clearly show him putting in the key to the on position and a check engine light doesnt even illuminate there fore it is either a. Deleted bulb or b. Burnt bulb. O2 eliminators delete or rather attempt to "eliminate " the rear o2 sensors but they do not delete a cel light

Not trying to call you out pr make u look bad or anything of the sort but its an observation i noticed ib attempting to help a fellow stang owner to fix his ride. Its a given to ask what was done prior to the problem to help diagnose a problem and find a solution for it. Kind of thing i do daily at my job so sadly it comes second nature to ask what was done prior to the problem cause it may be sonething with that like the intake u have mentioned.
