2009 ford mustang v6, standard, will not accelerate, no matter in which gear I am in why?


Sorry old son but your clutch sounds like it has gone to the big junk yard in the sky reserved for dead clutches . When a clutch starts to slip it will continue to do so until that is all it will do . solution a new clutch is required .

I have a 2003 ford mustang gt stick shift. clutch sliping


sounds like you have a worn or misadjusted clutch, but if your clutch is self adjusting meaning a operated with hydraulic pressure (Brake Fluid) then you could have leaking slave cylinder that maybe wetting the clutch disc with brake fluid causing a slippage, or just a worn clutch, in which case you will need to inspect inside bellhousing...

Won't shift into gear plymouth voyager


Hi the Transmission control module is having communication issues with the sitting solenoids that actually preform the shifting once you initiate it by using the in car stick. these solenoids are inside of the transmission pan and you will need to replace them.

bad headgasket = water in oil (milky) or oil in water (foamy I think).
