no previous issue with these and quit all together at once... please help
She sat up in grandma's garage for 15 years, got her running so smoothly then started acting up like there's a vacuum leak, she will crank up and run at idle all day (run roughly though) but as soon as I put her in gear she goes dead everytime.. oil was changed (old oil was fine, no mixing of oil and water), she never ran hot on me.. I've had several people look at her, I've heard change plugs n wires again, blown head gasket, vacuum leak, and so on.. The blown head gasket everyone thinks is questionable because the oil is fine and she never ran hot.. I'm in a bad dilemma as a single mom of 3 my funds are limited but desperately need to be back on the road again or break grandma's heart and sell her for a dependable mechanically sound ride. Hope I can find answers here, I'd be tremendously grateful and appreciate it very much for any insight that could be given!! Have a wonderful day! Btw on the next page 1990 is the earliest year to choose from or can't submit but mine is a 1987 Ford Mustang LX Convertible 2.3
Wen put in gear it jerks and shutdown
It might crank and runs good you might go out their and it turn over and hit but won't crank
already replaced the switch.. Same problem
Overheating occurs quickly when driving short distance,loud rattling noise begins when pushing accelerator only as temp climbs then when gauge reaches highest level it shuts off . 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?
92 mustang lx 2.3l,
Tryed starting the car but it would crank over everything else work( lights, gauges, fuel pump,etc) but would not crank. After a few tries of trying to start the car everything quit working. 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?
