    Make sure you use only Ford ignition parts, the aftermarket ones fail really fast and cause weird problems like rough run and loss of power, no starts just to name a few, I worked 20 years in a Ford dealer, I know this from personnel experience.

My 1990 riviera will run great, as you are going down the road it will shut off,but crank right backup. whats wrong?


Check the ECM part number. If it is a 1228253 that is your problem. get a 16198264 the other number does just what your car is doing. I worked at a Buick dealer and know about the problematic 1228253 ecm.

My 1989 Mustang 5.0 starts fine when the car is cold. After it is warmed up when you shut it off you have to wait at least 20 minutes before restarting or it turns over hard if you don't wait it won't...


The first thing to check is to make sure the engine is not overheating. This will make it hard for the starter to turn it, due to the engine tightening up.

So, I have a 88 ford mustang. It starts right up


Sounds like the control module/pick up coil in the distributor is bad.

1989 mustang shuts off when hot


Sounds like fuel vapor lock. The fuel gets hot and changes from liquid to gas before entering the cylinders.
Look for metal fuel line bent and touching hot engine part, or no longer in its clamp. You might also insulate the fuel line with pipe insulation from Lowe's or Home Depot.

Cold starts ok warms up shakes and stalls


check engine coolant temperature when it gets warmer, or at operating temperature, and verify that the temperature gauge is showing warmed up to operating temperature. If the coolant temperature sensor tells the computer the engine is cold it will over fuel and miss and the engine will die. When cooled down it will run fine until it warms up. Also could be coil if it starts missing after warmed up.

1998 Mustang manual 3.8 won't start


Mine is doing the same thing.. Long crank time when cold mainly to start.. Seem fine warm for a while then it starts having trouble warm as well. Almost ran my battery down starting it today. Called my guru and she said it's the fuel pump. 2hr labor and 80 part. Tank might need removed if no accesss panel.. "She says"... She's good trust me!
