I was wondering the time and money that would go into this to determine if it was worthwhile
I was told they would pull engine and redo all of the seals/gaskets b/c just about everything on engine is leaking oil.
Cigarette lighter fuse is good but cigarette lighter and charging port does not work. Obd2 scanner not reading computer. Mustang won't start but sounds like it wants to. New plugs,wires,distributor cap,rotor button,ignition coil,module tested good,fuel reading 40 at the rail, injected tested good, new fuel filter.Believe I am close but just can't put my hand on it . Need help, thanks...
I NEED one that I can trust!!! A mechanic that knows the car inside and out. Is successful with what he does...Also, I need him to be in near Chicago Suburbs.

My '97 Cobra has some sort of knocking coming from the engine when I accelerate at or above 2 RPM's. Some have told me it may be a few things. Rod Knock, calve lifter, crank shaft bouncing around (main bearings went caaaput). I just got my oil changed and almost feel the tampered with my car, which again caused me have trust issues. But not just this one time, but many times. My car also has exhaust issues (leak of some sort). The exhaust leak started couple of years ago when my clutch was replaced. I had the clutch repaired A SECOND TIME last year. I was thinking I should go back to them again, but they are not ford Mustang specialists.
By the way, I have owned my '97 Cobra Mustang since I bought it BRAND NEW from the dealer in November '97 (50+ some mile on it at time of purchase). SO I am the only owner. I don't beat on it, either, surprisingly. Garage kept for years.

I need a savior here!! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Phone numbers and location helps!
Need some engine work, hasn't been started in 5 months, and a new top and seats. Need a good place to have it repaired and will have it towed in.
Runs and shifts fine, just making a noise when up shifting and coming back down shift. ?
Not at idle, all the time if rpm at 2300 or more, not overheating, no loss of power or oil pressure
When I shift down as I am coming to a stop it makes a tin/rattling noise.
had 8000 miles after last oil change
I changed the plugs and the plug wires it ran a little better, but still sluggish in all gears but worse in 5th what could it be
it doesnt overheat idling untill i drive it down the road
this problem is getting worse. at first the check engine light would come on and car would run rough then it would clear up. i replaced disterbter, cap, cole. now getting to the point it will fire up and then shut off after a few seconds then wont fired back up for hours.
1997 mustang fan inside only works on high - if you turn the dial to any other setting - nothing happens
Converter damaged on right side.
The upholstery on my rear window has become unattached all the way around and leaks when it rains. Is there a glue to use to fix it? How would an auto upholstery shop fix it?
My cobra will die sometimes after pushing the clutch in to stop at a light. It will restart after sitting for about 10 minutes. It cut out twice going down the road the other day. It has a fuel cell on it. Any ideas? Sensor? Clogged filter?
Went to take off and it wouldn't sounds like something is spinning underneath but isn't catching to make the car go. What could be wrong? Rear end? Transmission?
I store my Mustang an a heated garage from November until may and usually do not start it up during those months. The last 2 years it has been hard to start and this year would not start at all. It turned over but wouldn't start. A hint online said to rap the gas tank and it it starts you need a fuel pump. I did that and it did start. I had to do that on a couple different occasions to get it started. To make a long story short. now it seems that it will start everytime with the battery is at full charge. It is the orininal battery. It is producing abut 12.06 on the test meter. I am wondering if I just am not getting enough from the battery to get everything going. Battery or fuel pump. I'm leaning towards a new battery. What do you think. Thanks very much in advance
