The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

    The car runs fine only it is in limp mode, ok then. You need the system scanned for the reason it is in limp home mode. Clear enough?

  • In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
  • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel psi

How do you remove the starter - 2004 Mustang V-6

I changed the starter on my 95 GT last week and it took a bit longer than expected for as simple as it is due to space constraints. The starter is mounted on the passenger side of the bell-housing. It's even with the back of the front tires. First, I removed one end of the support bar bolted on the bottom side of the frame (one bolt) and swung it out of the way for extra room. (You'll need all you can get.) Remove the two starter's two mounting bolts and reposition the it so that the solenoid pews. & neg posts are towards you. Remove these cables and then the starter should be free to remove it. You may take the old one in to the parts store where they can test it first, tho. Then, just reverse the process to install the new one.
