Question about 2000 Ford Mustang

2 Answers

Why does my 2000 gt 4.6L MUSTANG DIE AFTER 2 HOURS OF DRIVING, BUT STARTS BACK UP EVERYTIME?

WHEN I START CAR STARTS EVERY TIME. BUT AFTER DRIVING FOR 2 HRS OR A LIL LESS IT JUST DIES WHEN YOU ARE COMEING TO A STOP, OR TURNING. THIS MAKES CAR EXTREMELY HARD TO STEER WHEEN IT DOES IT, SO CANT LET WIFE DRIVE. IT STARTS RIGHT BACK UP EVERY TIME IT DOES IT , BUT THE RPM IS A LIL LOWER THAN NORMAL IDLE SHOULD BE. BUT IT ALWAYS STASRTS BACK UP WITHOUT SPUTTER RUNS GREAT.

This issue can be related to a variety of problems. If the check engine light is on I would have the codes scanned for problamatic sensors etc. If no check engine light on, have a look at the throttle plate and bore by removing the air hose from the filter box to the throttle plate and inspecting for gumming up. ( Black/dirty) If so, use a carb cleaner spray and old tooth brush to remove any deposits that may cause base idle to be affected. Another problem could be the IAC ( idle air control ) motor not working properly

Definitely do what Paul said first. But if the problem gets worse over time(like it only takes an hour to shut down) Start looking at the catalytic converters. Start saving now as they are costly.

I was driving my Murano around town delivering papers for 4 hours, I stopped to get my mail, and turned the car off. Got back in and now the car wont start. It will try and be very boggy for about 10 sec....


Let it sit for about 45 minutes before trying to start it again. If after this time, it starts back up, then you are probably having a fuel pump related issue.

2000 Ford Mustang GT. High beams BOTH WORK. Signal lights BOTH WORK. Low beam ONLY works on the right side. Both bulbs have been replaced. What is going on???? This is driving me mad!!


Have you checked the fuses yet? The low beams use 2 different fuse for the left and right lamps. The fuse for the left lamp is #10 in the central junction box located behind the dash to the left of the steering column.
