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!

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

Loud clicking noise coming from engine when at high rpms. I have a stick. The noise happens just as I'm about to shift from 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to 4th. Doesn't happen much in 4th gear or...


sounds like the rockers or lifters have some play due to wear.you don`t say what rpm you are shifting at other than high rpm.by changing the oil you have increased the viscosity of the oil as its new and not dirty and thin and cold oil is thicker than warm oil.you might want to try a heavier oil to see if it helps.you may not get this noise out unless you replace components or adjustment of rockers if they are adjustable.if its not very bad you may have to live with it.
