So my car broke down a over week Ago now and has been in the shop since and the guy has charged me all sorts of money and it keeps breaking down the problem it has now is you will be driving and the rpms will go down to 0 then back up it will do that a couple of time then just die an wont start guy has charged me to keep replacing stuff very pissed off at this point he said if he can't find it that I will have to bring it to a ford shop. Any advice or ideas on what it could be would really help right now thank you

P.s it is a 94 mustang gt with basic mods

A list of mods and recent parts that he replaced would help a lot in troubleshooting your issue(s).
Whatever you do don't go back to him.. He clearly has no idea what's going on with your car.

If the mechanic doesbt get it right the first (maybe second) repair, then take it somewhere else. That all said your issue sounds vacuum related. I'm not too familiar with that engine so i won't guess too much but that sounds like the problem.

He's probably working on your car with a hammer.
I'd take a car running perfect, change a spark plug to one that's junk, take it to him and see what he says. If he comes back with a godawful diagnosis and price(and you knowing its just a bad plug), you know he's shady as ****

The guy hasn't done **** all if that's what he said he did. I'd tell him to f himself asap. Take it to a proper mechanic. I bet its a 100$ fix.

My next step is another shop then dealer and its a 94 so it is hard to pull codes the guy who has it now said he pulled codes and said it was something and fixe it and still didn't work oooo and a little update still haven't got an update on the at from this guy

If you keep going to all these shops and the dealer you may end up spending more then the car is worth. Why can't you scan for codes and tell us what they are? We may be able to save you a lot of cash.

Really? Okay. How did the mechanic scan for codes then as stated above?

Do they have a special tool?
