Question about 1996 Ford Mustang
When cruising rpms drop then go normal then drops then car just shuts off then wont crank up again like it was flooding out whats my problem?
This could be many things but I would start by checking the timing belt. Sounds like it may have jumped somehow. If the engine crnks over and has fuel the only thing left is spark, and it cut off while driving so it only makes sense to look at the timing.

Too much gas won't make it hard to crank. To thick oil or not enough antifreeze will. If it's flooding, slowly pump the gas pedal to the floor 3 times and then with the pedal held tight against the floor, crank the engine. This will open the butterfly wide open and will blow the extra gas out.

SOURCE: 1989 mustang shuts off when hot
Sounds like fuel vapor lock. The fuel gets hot and changes from liquid to gas before entering the cylinders.
Look for metal fuel line bent and touching hot engine part, or no longer in its clamp. You might also insulate the fuel line with pipe insulation from Lowe's or Home Depot.
