Question about 1965 Ford Mustang
My 65 Mustand hesitates at accelateration. It happens bad in first and 2nd gears.. then after it gets goign a bit its not as bad.. I had the oil, Tranny and Diff fluids changed this weekend.. and the hesitation got worse and it backfired all the way home.. I rencetly changed the air filter and was told to try the fuel filter.. but then somone just told me that was highly unlikely. after the backfire incident I sprayed carb cleaner on teh carb area and the backfiring stopped but it still hesitates.. HELP!
Sounds like a choke sticking or carburetor needing attention..(adjusting or rebuilding) hard to say more without hearing it my own self.....hit me up if i can help more firstname.lastname@example.org

I have the same problem with my 65 coup...but at acceleration at higher speeds..I had the carburetor rebuilt and a new fuel pump installed. The vacuum advance was checked and is working. What is finally helping is my mechanic advanced the timing a little and it helpedthe hesitation at higher speeds. He is adjusting the carburetor now and says that should take care of the low speed acceleration. Hope this helps
