Has water and oil,but oil was really low.Has smell and A little smoke when raised hood.Already has a rack and pinion leak and bad ignition computer,but don't know if that is relevant or related.told could be related to the head or engine going bad.know zero about cars and no money for professional diagnoses but ANY opinion would be greatly appreciated to know at least a starting point

Began to light up and off check engine light car is like new only has 56000 miles

bought this car used. we suspected it had a little damage to the axle because there was uneven wear on the rear brake drums. replaced rear brakes. squeaking stopped, now started again less than 6 mos. later. Now I went to drive yesterday and i heard a crunching squeal noise ! sounds like a soda can being crushed by steel cog-wheels. i read a q&a talking about worn outer tie rods, is this the problem or something else?

No light gauges fuel pump etc. but after a while the car would get the electronics back but once again after a few tries the electronics quit working and still no crank or fire

my blinkers, head lights, and brake lights are not working.
the blinkers will work with the emergency light switch but not the signal switch.
I just bought the car. I see there is a newer stereo and looks like there is wiring for sub/amp
was wondering where I should start.
fuses were good.

Idles rough and dies in park and neutral only. Does fine while in gear. Would the neutral safety switch cause this?

I have already replaced plugs, wires, EGR, throttle position sensor, and cleaned the IAC the best I could. What else could it be

Every time the transmissi is put into a new gear it shifts hard and makes the car move. When driving the transmissi does not shift hard only when going from park, reverse and drive.

On my 1993 mustang I change the rack and pinion boots because they were leaking so I changed them now I'm still loosing power steering fluid but not much and I see no leaks. Is it Because the boots are still filling and just taking some out of the power steering pump or what?

had some interior work done on car. doors needed to be left open and the ignition was on, but not started, now engine will not crank. any ideas?

it blew a head gasket so we replaced that and it starts, runs for about 30 secs or so and just shuts down like you turned it off, it starts right up again and does it again

It has 93,000 miles on it. i just bought it a thousand miles ago. wondering what the best route to go with that would be.

Both handles were plastic and they eventually fell off completely. I have two handles already, that I bought a while back

I could use some quick helpful info on a average or good price for the replacement of the steering coupler on this vehicle. I was told by the mechanic that the part was almost obsolete and may have to be modified from an aftermarket one if they can't find one. However I was quoted a price of$282.00 for parts & labor. Is that a good deal in SF bay area? Thanks for quick respose

I have an '87 Mustang LX 2.3 4cyl and need an estimate for timing belt replacement. Your list stops at 1990. I would also like a separate estimate for steering coupler repair or replacement for the same vehicle if possible. Thanks

I think I put the battery in backwards, do the posts belong facing towards the engine or the fender? I took the old battery out several months ago and I just don't remember.

I installed two new fuel pumps into a 1993 Mustang 5.0 lx. Replaced the new one because I thought it was bad. The car runs when I install the new fuel pumps just fine on idle. Drove it around the block about a mile and it just died. Just shut down. There is now no priming sound for the fuel pump. If I were to take it out and put it back in I know it would start right back up. Replaced the Relay switch behind the the passenger strut. That was not the problem. Is a fuel pump relay and a fuel pump switch the same thing? People keep talking about a relay under the drivers seat. Don't see a kill switch in the trunk either. Not sure why it would start and run until I drive it and then stop. Thanks for any help.

Bought two fuel pumps and replaced them thinking the first new one was bad. Both ran for about ten minutes on idle. As soon as I gave it gas it died. Won't even prime. Replaced the relay switch and nothing. If I took it out again Im sure it would start after I put it back in. Why does this happen? We are at a total loss. Really ran great on idle. Now nothing at all not even the sound it makes when you previously start it. Thanks

I have had my car since new, and the alarm was factory installed. Sometimes it just goes off for no apparent reason, and now, even when it is not set, it is still going off randomly. Would this be easy to fix? Any suggestions on what I should be looking for? Or since the alarm is so old, should I just get a new alarm instead? Will a new alarm be able to be set up the same way, where the engine cannot be started without the remote being used. Thanks!

This is a 1993 LX 2.3 4 cylinder

I just did a complete tune up, new battery, new starter. All I get with the key is a click. The ignition recall was already changed by Ford dealer. The car sat all winter and I had noticed it once when I went to start it in the winter. Thought it was the starter but I guess not Could be the clutch switch I don't know.

When I drive my mustang sometimes after driving for a while and shutting it off for a short time, it will not start and stay running.It will crank over, but sounds like the engine is starving for gas. It will not stay running,sometimes waiting for 30 minutes or more before it will start again. Today it died out on me while I was driving down the road. I pulled over and waited for a while then started and it ran about a block and died. Usually this problem only happens after I shut it off. I checked the fuel pressure at the valve on the gas line and it sprayed out. I then tried to start the car and it started and ran fine.I have already replaced the TFI on the distributor. The car is not overheating whenever this happens, but the summers here in vegas, the temp is usually around 100 degrees.Also whenever the car will not stay running,and when I try to start it I always hear the fuel pump running.Any ideas?
