You want to do the screwdriver check with the motor running. And don't let any hoodie strings or clothing get caught up in the pulleys or belts

Thanks for suggestions.. But.. The cop on 5 and 3 is brand new. I've sprayed searching for vacuum leak. I've even taken the black cover tube off the vacuum lines and sprayed and inspected.

Still check the cops like they said just because there new doesn't mean their bad or swap the #5 cop with another cop to see if the misfire jumps to another cylinder

I had that problem a LONG while back with my 2000 GT. Spent like 80 a pop on brand new coils...before I put them on I just started swapping and playing with the ones that were already on. One must not have been seated properly or something...all was solved at that point

Hmmmm...I was even thinking that the valve body in the auto was hating you, but that's not going to cause a misfire.

If it was a valve issue it would be constant right? Not bouncing back and forth from missing to firing? if I unplug my maf it hardly does it. It stuttered maybe a couple times ..but really..a maf causing misfire on the same 2 cylinders for months now

So this morning I went outside and put the original hose that connects the fuel rail back on.. Hooked up the fuel pressure tester and clicked the key on. It only went up to 20 psi.. I didn't prime it just clicked it on once. Then started it. It went to 30
I'm considering going to AutoZone to buy the Delphi pump for 100 $.. I mean eff it if it don't fix it Its worth a hundred bucks to me to rule out the pump anyway.

Have the auto parts store test your charging system while you are there.

Having them zip tie right doesn't mean a thing I had it zip tied too and it still would miss next time it's missing just wiggle the plug and see if it goes away.

And if you don't have a long enough screw driver they actually sell a stethoscope for that

Can't wiggle the connector when its missing it only misses under load ..its fine at idle.
And I'm going to have to take the battery and alt out and take it to the store I don't wanna drive the mustang that far misfiring. It's just embarrassing.my truck is my daily driver. Also have an 07 impala ss and I effing hate it.. 5.3 liter LS4 and its fwd!! Ruined the car. Not even fun to drive anything other then a straight line. Also came factory with a garbage transmission. Anyway the fuel tank seems very accessible on this car..im almost excited abt it. If I can get the thing runnin right I would buy black wheels and a black top ..

See if it's getting power at the pump with a test light. Then check to see if it's getting power at the fuel pump driver module... And go from there

Most shops will do a free diagnoses, you could just take it to a shop and ask them to figure it out then fix it yourself

Did the fuel pressure increase? Or did it remain the same?

I've just abt had it with this car. This morning I come outside and open the door and the front and rear floors are soaked! It doesn't run worth a **** an nobody can come up with a hint as to why. Replaced battery 🔋 alterntor tested fine. No change.
Compressions the same. Eff it.
I'm dropping the insurance and parking it. I'll take the carpet out (want to replace anyway) to find the damn leak. Ill take the heads off and take them to someone and pay for them to make sure they're straight and port them and install new valves and ill put em in with a new gasket. Ill use all new cop's plugs and injectors. And kill the kittys
If I don't end up with a nice car then.. Ill take it to a dealer as a trade in
Will keep up with progress updates
I'm thinking of going to harbor freight and getting a portable garage .. They have decent reviews. I've seen some pics of the damn things standing strong in snow that you'd expect to crush it. Only 200$

I've never taken the heads off of a motor that was A. Outside.. Or B. Not going to be replaced that day. How do I take care of the motor during The wait?? Was thinking of using strong strash bags and gorilla tape to seal it and prevent moisture..

Have you checked with a noid light to see if those are getting proper signal?
Do you have a dyno close that can put the car under a load while stationary to help diagnose the problem?

Ok..may have been a little durastic before.
Realizing that i threw a fuel pressure tester back on there and ..its still bouncing around 30. A little above nd below. But is up to 35 with the key clicked on motor off.. Before was 32 I think ...
Driver module? Frpts? I just recently learned the fuel pump relay has two circuits one is controlled by pcm and other is controlled by battery voltage..battery light is always on assuming because of underdrive pullies. Hmm

What is the battery charging at with car running? Overcharging? Did you test the alternator?
