Cobra problems

Hey guys I got a 1997 cobra and I have been having some trouble with it. When I'm driving down the road and I go from let's say 4th or 5th to neutral the rpms drop all the way down to 0. In better terms it dies. But if I tap the gas real fast right after I put it in neutral it will be fine and not die. Any ideas on what this could be? Thanks

IAC? Replace with an OEM one (rockauto) and see if that fixes it.

I will try that. Less than 4000 miles ago I cleaned the IMRCs and throttle body. It's got fresh plugs, but the wires and coil packs are still the factory ones. Car has 110k on it

Coil packs should not be an issue but wires... yeah... that could do it.

Hey man I'm getting a new clutch put in and I was wondering is you knew if this flywheel would fit my cobra. I know it say 05-09 mustang but I'm pretty sure since it's an 8 bolt it will fit Click image for larger version

That will fit and is correctly weighted. You may have to punch out the dowel pins and install yours or new ones.

Any tips on how to get the top bolts on the bell housing off. They are just plain stuck. Been working on the for about 6 hours

4 feet of 1/2" extensions, universal on the socket going to the bolt. Big breaker bar with a piece of pipe on it for leverage. Have a buddy on the breaker while you have a hand up there keeping the socket flush.

Hey man, couldn't get the bolts out.. Tried everything. So I have to have it towed to a shop. I have the driveshaft out. It's it going to be okay to get it towed on a flatbed truck with it out?

Yeah it'll be fine. Did you round the bolts off or something? If you can still get a good bite on the bolts they'll come out with a breaker bar and a pipe on the end of that. If you are on your back in the driveway I guess it could be an issue... I always do them on a lift.

You can also pull the intake manifold and the top 2 bolts will be right there easy to get to from the top if you don't feel like towing it.

Sadly I don't have a lift. I will try to get to them from the top side then. Even with a breaker bar and extensions they wouldn't break free. I have never seen anything like it

Spray the **** out of them with liquid wrench. And then get the breaker and put a piece of pipe onto the breaker to get even more leverage. You'll either snap the bolt head off or remove it... or round it off...


When I did the trans on my 98 We had a solid 30" of leverage with the breaker bar to pop off one of the bolts, that sucker was stuck. Loud pop and creak when it finally let go.
