WELL LETS START WITH THE FUEL FILTER WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME IT WAS REPLACED , THESE TEND TO CLOG UP WHEN THE CAR IS OPERATED WITH ONLY A 1/4 TO 1/8 OF GAS IN TANK WITH THE PRICE OF GAS I CANT SAY I BLAME U BUT THE GAS U BUY ISNT CLEAN AND UR FUEL PUMP WILL SUCK UP THAT SEDAMENT CLOGING UP THE FILTER . THE FUEL FILTER IS LOCATED ON THE PASSENGER SIDE UNDER THE CAR ALONG THE FRAME INLINE WITH THE PASSENGER SEAT OR ALSO IT CAN BE LOCATED NEXT TO THE FUEL TANK MOUNTED ALONG THE FRAME NEAR REAR WHEEL .

My 1994 ford mustang gt is hard to start in the morning and even harder to start if it sets for a couple of days, and doest seem to go to a faster idel when it's cold; but once started runs and idels...


This is due to the fact that it possibly hasn't gone for a check-up in quite a long time. There are only two things that can cause this kind of problem and they are
1. If the battery is low or the kick starter is bad. A very good way to determine if the battery or kick stater is good is to watch out for the sound that the engine produces while you keep trying to start the vehicle. If you notice any kind of slow winding of the engine gears(i.e sluggish sound instead of usual energetic sound). A bad kick starter would lead you to keep trying to start the engine and eventually make the battery to die.
secondly, there might be a problem to your fuel supply. It might not be supplying enough fuel into the combustion chamber (be it carburetor or injector) therefore limiting the supply of available fuel to start up the engine.
The best thing to do is to send it to a mechanic to run a complete diagnosis on the engine to know if there might be any other issues as this is a very old engine and requires delicate care.
Hope this solution was helpful to you? Please comment for more information

Idels high shifts hard and that is like every other time started put in new ecm and still have the issue


Your describing a vacume leak or a mis adjusted throttle body. Does it ever idel down? What engine is in it Desiel? If it's gas the AIS motor might be sticking or is bad. Does it run and is the check engine light on? are all the fluilds correct level? coolant level low can make the coolant senser lie about the temperture of the motor to the ecm and it'll command a high idel. Once the idel motor goes as high as it can it might be shicking and you can remove it and wash it off with carb spray and while it's out with the wire connected turn the key on and off with it in your hand and spray it with cleaner till it moves smoothly. With it retracted install it and try again, any vacume leak will make it idel fast. The trans mission will shift hard if the vacume line to it is off and it's on the back of the intake manifold and it goes to a modulater on the side of the trans. it can be off there too.
