The blinking indicates the system has detected a miss-fire in the engine, run a trouble code test to isolate the cylinder causing it.

My 2003 ford mustang is sputtering and the check engine light is blinking no code


You can get a free scan from Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance auto parts. This should indicate a problem. If the standard test scanner does not verify a problem, the Dealers have more advanced scanners which can capture intermittent problems.

There are so many possibilities that you need more tests to find the problem. Offhand, if this is a V6 engine, there were problems with intake Manifold runners and sandwich gaskets for 2 piece intake manifolds.

Stuck manifold runners could provide lousy low rpm performance and perfect high rpm performance just like you describe whether a V6 or V8. The 2 piece intakes were used on V6 engines and once you get above midrange in Rpm, it could run acceptably at higher Rpm.

I just noticed lately when I turn ON my turn signals, they start blinking twice normal then starts blinking really fast. And not all the rear light bulbs are ON. Could this be my turn signal...


If one of your rear bulbs is burnt out then the signals will react this way. 2007 is not very old of a car for a signal delay problem. It would be more likely a bulb.

Hey hey!! my check light comes on and starts to flutter and so does the engine! eventually loosing all engine power and it wont even drive??? please help if u know what i mean??? (the orange check light in...


These engines have a self-diagnostic system built in. Find a manual on how to engage this self-diagnostic - you jump a couple of leads in a junction box and then count the number of times the check engine light blinks in succession. Refer to the Toyota manual for identifying what system is affected. Sounds like a critical component is out - fuel pump perhaps. Don't quess - use the diagnostic system.

83 mustang gt


In a 83 MUSTANG GT the correct answer is BOTH. As a 5.0L and a TURBO CHARGED 4 cyinder were offered.


1983 Mustang GT
  • Engine:
    • 5.0L horsepower increased to 175 HP when 4V carb replaced 2V carb from 1982 (Holley 4180C series).
    • Exhaust system was revised (less restrictive).
    • 4-speed SROD was only transmission available until early December 1982. In December, new 5-speed T5 became standard GT transmission (4-speed remained on option list).
    • Block and crank were revised to accomodate a 1-piece rear main seal in December 1982.
    • The new "Turbo GT" with a turbo charged 4 cylinder engine was available beginning late in the model year - 145 HP and featured the same suspension and other features of the V8 Mustang GT.

What exactly is it doing or not doing for that matter. Check vacuum lines going to the unit and see if you have any broken hoses. I'll try to get a schematic to you. It's best if you give me your email address so I can send it to you.
