Question about 1987 Ford Mustang

1990 Ford Mustang GT W/351W

I own a 1990 Ford Mustang GT and I have starting issues.Now if I make a short sprint down the street and back it will start right up,but if I allow it to reach its normal operating temp the starter will drag.It will have to be jumped off. I've had the starter replaced ,the alternater replaced,timing checked,added new battery cables ,and even replaced the battery with one with more CCA's.Nothing has worked I'm stumped.As long as the car doesn't reach it normal oper temp its fine ,but the longer I drive it the harder it is to start.

Are you sure its not an engine overheating issue Maybe have a faulty eng temp sensor.Sounds like engine is tightening up Considering what youve replaced ICan you check power supply to starter when its tight?

I have a 1990 mustang 5.0 GT that don't not want start. I have fuel pressure and I have spark. The car has been sitting for one year now, I can't get it to start, acting like its out of time


Try starting fluid. Gas is probably bad and needs to be drained. The engine will fire or run briefly with starting fluid verifying a fuel problem.

As with any no start issue, you will have to figure out if you are loosing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
Common problems with Ford products is the ignition module and the fuel pump relay.

I agree, jumped timing. Check to make sure the dist is tight. Than check for tdc on the #1 cylinder. When the #1 cyl is TDC the rotor should be pointing to that wire on the cap. Take the cap off while checking. Also is easier to turn motor by hand without plugs in motor.

1990 Ford Mustang GT Still Running Hot!


check to see if you can spin the fanwhile the engine is cool it should spin freely,if it doesnt fan clutch,also I would switch the fan back to oringinal just to test if this is the problem,if it is youll have to design a different fan shroud if you want to use you new fan,if everything done above is ok with the engine cool take off the radiator cap and squeeze the bottom hose 4-5 times in burst this will make sure you dont have air in the system,if this is helpfull please vote me a fix ya
