    MY MUSTANG DOES NOT HAVE IT'S FULL POWER. IT FEELS LOKE IT IS RUNNING ON 4 CYLINDERS INSTEAD OF 6. IT ALSO SHUTS DOWN AND WON'T START UNLESS I HOLD DOWN THE GAS. IT WILL NOT STAY ON BY ITSELF.

Why does my 2000 gt 4.6L MUSTANG DIE AFTER 2 HOURS OF DRIVING, BUT STARTS BACK UP EVERYTIME?


This issue can be related to a variety of problems. If the check engine light is on I would have the codes scanned for problamatic sensors etc. If no check engine light on, have a look at the throttle plate and bore by removing the air hose from the filter box to the throttle plate and inspecting for gumming up. ( Black/dirty) If so, use a carb cleaner spray and old tooth brush to remove any deposits that may cause base idle to be affected. Another problem could be the IAC ( idle air control ) motor not working properly

Larry . what type of fuel system are you running? sounds like it has a mixture supply problem at idle after coming off revs. the solution is different depending on fuel type and system ie: LPG, Petrol, Carby, Injection

You are going to need to start with a new idle air control valve. It is mounted on the throttle body on top of the engine.

rap on to the mass air flow sensor and see if the idle chages. if it does its bad. Use a block of wood such as a foot long 2x4 it works great for this test

The best solution is to do a complete tune up with new spark plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter, pcv valve and oil change.. If this still happen I would get some fuel injector cleaner, or use marvel mystery oil in both your oil(crankcase) and gas tank. You can get mystery oil at walmart..its in a red bottle with black label.
