How and what i need to fix

Hi, I have to replace my driver side door on my 2000 ford mustang bass model.. I went to the junk yard and seen some pretty nice doors there. I was wondering if an 01,02 or 03 will fit my 2000 ford mustang? Or what years will fit my 2000 mustang?

The check engine/service engine soon light is on. I had the code pulled at Pep Boys during an oil change and it's P0340.

The symptoms are on a cool morning, like under 60F, the car will stall out on the first start. It will start normally after that and for the rest of the day regardless of how long it's been off.

On cold mornings I've tried turning the key to on a few times to get the fuel rail repressurized in case it was a problem with the fuel pump, but that doesn't prevent the engine from stalling the first attempt.

There doesn't seem to be an easy to diagnose problem with the alternator. Going by cabin light brightness: all additional loads like headlights and AC blower only cause a very brief dimming before returning to normal brightness and staying normal after that. That's not exhaustive testing, but the alternator is often the cause of the problem with these symptoms.

The car runs fine otherwise. It has a 3.8L engine with 89,000 miles on it.

Are there specific things I can to check with basic tools and a multi-meter? I need to solve the problem because I have a smog check coming up in August so I need the code fixed to pass.

Thank you for any suggestions.

I have a code reader and this event leaves no code behind, no pending codes either. When this happens the engine temporarily losses a significant amount of power.

If i rev the engine or go fast my engine steams, is it a loose hose? How much will it be to fix

LOST FIRST GEAR WHILE DRIVING. LOST ALL FORWARD GEARS, ONLY REVERSE WORKS. PULLED TRANS PAN, NO METAL SHAVINGS AND TRANS FLUID DOES NOT SMELL BURNT. REPLACED TRANS FILTER AND FLUID. TRANSMISSION CONTROL SOLENOID-IF I REPLACE THEM WILL THIS FIX MY PROBLEM, AND IF SO WHICH ONE DO I REPLACE?

These problems all seemed to occur at once. about a week ago, I had thought it was the misfiring that my spark plugs were causing so i replaces them and the wires but the light stayed on. Today I had bought a ODB2 device and used it. It told me the codes, I looked them up on this site and I just need to know how to fix them without going to a shop.

It sounds like the motor is hitting the hood IT does this noise until you get your speed up to 60 then it stops What could be causing this
