I had the same exact problem with my 1998 Explorer and it was the Idle Air Control. You can try to remove and clean it but it won't last very long. I replaced it myself in 5 minutes and an expense of $80. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hesitation and stumbling.

Before you do that, check which thermostat it has in it, if it has one that is letting it get too warm or not completely up to temp when the computer think it should be, it would cause this. My 2000 crown vic did the same thing and thats what it was.

SOURCE: 1965 Mustang 289 2v 2100 carb. The car runs fine

It sounds like the choke may not be opening completely. Check the choke tube from the choke assy. to the exaust manifold. The tube often breaks off at the manifold. There was a repair kit from a co.
called toke.(it was the 60's)The part# was ux-1 it had a new copper tube+sleeve and a fitting, that you would place over the broken piece in the manifold tap
it with a hammer and it knocks out the old + installs
the new fitting. Push in the new tube and install the
other end into choke assy. If it's an elec.choke check
the voltage at the wire to the choke assy. it should be between 7-12 volts, if not check for a fuse in line or at
the fuse block. I don't recall exactly where it is. But if
neccesery you can run a new wire with a 20amp in
line fuse, from the choke plug to the S(stator)connection on the alternator. This will provide enough
juice to expand the bimetal spring in the choke housing. And only when it's needed. When the engine is running..Also the choke can be adjusted
whether it's the tube or elec. You can adjust the choke spring by turning the black plastic cover.
There should be 2 arrows pointing clockwise+counter
clockwise. After the choke is fixed you can fine tune
it by loosining the 3 screws and turning to rich or lean as needed. Hope this helps.

Air works fine, no heat

First check your coolant level. If that is good then it could either be a clogged heater core, or there is a little servo motor under the passenger side dash board that controls the blend air door and the hot coolant flow into the heater core. One way to check it and it requires some bending and twisting. With the vehicle running look up under the passenger side dashborad and there will be a little servo with an arm attached to it. Next turn on the system on with the auto switch and push the button for cool then push the button for hot until it is maxed out to 90 degrees. Then observe if the servo lever moves, if not then more than likely its that servo. Sometimes it will make a banging noise or it could just be burnt out.

How do you replace an antenae on a 1965 mustang.

Disconnect the cable at the radio. Then unscrew the hardware holding the antenna to the fender. Then pull the antenna base out of the fender, disconnect the cable from the antenna base turning it back and forth with pliers or you can cut it. Do not let the cable fall back into the fender. Now take the cable from the new antenna and duct tape it to new antenna cable. Now inside the car pull on the old cable until the new cable reaches the radio. Plug cable into radio then hook up the hardware on the fender for the new antenna and you're done. Good luck.
