Question about 1988 Ford Mustang
Will run if you spray withh starter fuild
What you should check is firing order, any motor that has spark and petrol must at least back fire, when try to start, if it is still not doing that I would do a compression test to make sure compression is ok, then check the carb to make sure there is fuel in it and that the flot level in carb is correct check clean the carb all the jets and places where petrol flows through the carb, once you have completely clean and checked the carb then you know it's not the carb then you go to the next thing. Spark, is the bogie cables work properly replace them if it is shorting out against the body of the engine, replace the condenser that is on the side of the rotor cap those things are known to give trouble, they work sometimes and then it stops working, anyway good luck hope this is of use to you.

Click the key forward BUT don't start the car listen for fuel pump to pressurize and shut off. But if the pump keeps running change the fuel pump relay switch under drivers seat. If its pressurizing and shuts off then its not your fuel pump. Fuel pressure at rail when idling is 30 psi.
Let me know what happens cause I know alot about Stangs had 2 5.0

Turn key forward listen for the fuel pump to pressurize if you don't here anything then your fuel pump needs replaced and it's in the tank.

check the enertia switch in the trunk its kills power to the fuel pump in an accident, ive had mine pop from hiting a large pot hole. theres a little white tab on a black box you need to push down to reset it.
