When was the last time you had the timing belt checked and or replaced? That should happen at least every 60k to 70k miles. It sounds like your timing belt has stretched or jumped timing.

I assume the fuse has power if the hazards work.
The third brake light skips the turn signal switch, the regular brake light circuit goes thru the turn signal switch.
Do you have power going into the turn signal switch on the red lite green wire from the brake switch ?

If the light is flashing - NO. It means you are dumping raw fuel intot eh catalytic converter (very expensive).

If steady, drive sparingly.

01 is cylinder #1 misfiring. Could be spark plug or coil.

16 is misfire detected during start up.

2003 mustang gt will skip when it hits about 1,500 rpm but after that it is fine but you can still feel a little skip in it.

I have a similar symptom. No engine light lite. It can be felt as I accelerate moderately from a standing stop. Then as my engine begins a climb in rpm in seems to hesitate for a brief moment and then continue to increase rpm. Not sure what this is.

Is this the symptom you were identifying?

My 2003 Mustang Mach 1 has a skip in the engine when I first start it up. After I drive it for a short distance ( about 6-7 miles ) the skip goes away. I thought it might be a bad spark plug, so I replaced...


I'd suspect a sticking injector--car should have set the check engine light. Read the code(s) to progress further. If the coil pack were a problem, it would not be likely to fix itself. If the codes indicate an injector problem, try an injector cleaner in the fuel--worst case, replace the bad injector. The codes should indicate which cylinder to change the injector.

2003 Mustang engine skipping when accelerating


Does it idle fine? Sounds like a vacuum leak.

Engine skipping/misfiring, engine light flashing


Drive it into a dark place, or wait till dark. When it's running poorly, see if you can see any spark flying around. It sounds like plug wires.
