    What is leaking: oil, antifreeze, fuel? Is the engine block cracked? Where specifically is it leaking from and how severe?

The top won't go down on my 1996 Mustang convertible. What should I check on?

If motor does not run when the switch is pressed then check your fuses, the switch and the connector at the top motor to see if it is getting power. Remember the car should be in park with the emergency brake on. The key switch has to be in the run position. If you can hear the motor running check for the smell of hydraulic fluid. It could leaking from the cylinders that pull the top down and push it up. If one or both will not hold pressure. Replace cylinders if bad.

I have a 1996 mustang 4.6. when i start my car it runs at 2000rpm.will finally sttle at 1000rpms after few min. the rpms will not drop when you push in the clutch. just put a new idle air control valve on...

perhaps there is a air leak at the mating surface. if you have a bottle of propane, use it to ckeck for leaks around the gasket/mating surface. start the engine. open the valve on the bottle DO NT LIGHT direct the gas around the mating surface. if the r's go up you have a leak. it is possible that since this is new, the computer was used to the old one and needs time to adjust
