Question about 1992 Ford Mustang
Car blows white smoke out of the exhaust from every stop. I already installed new plugs, spark plug wires, fuel pressure regulator, and i also had to replace the pigtail connecting to my exhaust ignition coil. im not sure what else to do. when the car is in park i could rev the engine all day and it runs smooth but once i put the car in drive i get this bad hesitation and the car feels like its got no acceleration. it feels like im dragging a parachute behind me. please help?
This is a sign the engine is burning oil. The oil id getting into the combustion chamber either by the waorn valve guides or via worn piston rings.
A compression test can determine if you have worn piston rings.
If you have worn piston rings then this is a major engine overhaul.
Worn valve guides is a minor engine overhaul.

DID YOUR LOCAL MECHANIC ALSO WASH THE ENGINE BAY??
IF SO THEN THEY MESSED IT ALL AGAIN, SPECIALLY THE AIR FILTER, IT GETS NASTY
DID THEY CHANGE YOUR FUEL FILTER AS WELL, AS IT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN A REGULAR TUNE UP
BUT MY GUESS IS THAT IT'S ONLY THE AIR FILTER THAT GOT WET

i would check fuel supply, volume adn pressure, i wold also look at the MAF sensor hot wire to see if it has a little chia pet growing on it.

It sounds like it might be runnig lean on fuel. How old is the fuel filter. Lack of fuel will cause this. Ford needs about 40 psi of pressure to run well. So it runs a lot of fuel thru the filter. It should be changed at least every 30,000 ?

I suggest you check for spark by taking a spark plug wire off one of the spark plugs and using one of your old plugs and crank it over and see, it wouldn't be the first time a module died on a Ford. Plus if you have a fuel pressure tester hook it up and check for proper pressure if no gauge just shoot a couple of squirts of engine start or carb spray in the intake if it starts something wrong with your fuel system recheck wiring conections if you don't hear fuel pump, turn on key from 3 to 5 seconds fuel pump should run to prime fuel rail then stop, if not check fuel system.
