Sounds like the idle control valve. The same thing happened to my Mustang and that was my problem.

SOURCE: Cold days 94 f-150 high rpm start

probably is a emissions sensor problem, lots of these parts are plastic. check out the throttle cables, lub em wd40. there is a type of valve somewhere on top of engine, it may be cracked, pcv valve stuck. lots of possibilities, almost too much for solution online. something emmissions with an electronic sensor is acting up.

SOURCE: engine starts but will not idle, i give it gas but will not sustain in running afyer 2 seconds engine dies

check all spark plugs and wires also check mass air flow senser located on intake tube if all is still in good working condition check the throttle position sensor if that is good then it may be your fuel pump please update when possable.

SOURCE: Hi, I have an 86 Mustang GT. At idle the engine

It could be your idle air bypass valve. They get sticky with age and don't let enough air around the throttle body to keep the car running when it's at idle.

Testimonial: "Hi Nick, I took it apart and soaked it with intake cleaner spray and it worked! I also replaced the gaskets in the throttle body. Thank you. :-)"

This would indicate a problem with the automatic choke. Putting the pedal to the floor creates the same effect as the choke when starting the car.

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.
