4 cyl automatic the MFD date is 10/1991 too. I need to know what parts that need to be taken off to get to the timing belt on this Mustang. Also, are there any specialty tools I will need to do this timing belt job? Moreover, from your experience what’s the most mileage that was put on a car before the timing belt broke? Thank you for your time.

I believe the change interval for the timing belt was about 36,000 miles(I made it almost 80,000). I rolled my second 2.3 Mustang at 36,000. Only special tool you will need is a harmonic balancer puller. Easy job, Get the fan shroud off, fan, Harmonic balancer, then belt cover. .

The 2.3L/2300 is the easy est to replace this is what i would suggest
Get a manual and fallow it you do not half to take off much and once
you get th cover off.then loss-en or remove the belt tightener you can slip
the belt of the cam gear . then put cam gear where the tell you to rotate
it to next rotate crank to its location you put the belt back over crank
gear then slip it back on cam gear it is tight but it will go on then reinstall belt tightener

if you have to ask, then i would recomend that you bring it to someone who knows. you can damage the engine if you don't put it back in time the right way
