Try cleaning the throttle body, be sure to use a throttle body cleaner, not carb cleaner or intake cleaner.

Not sure if your car is so equipped but there is a device called an 'idle air control' that can cause problems such as you describe.
If you have one of the chain auto parts stores in your area, they will scan your computer to download any stored error codes but you may not have any since you didn't mention a check engine light being on.

Intermittent dash board problems


sounds like you have a grounding issue possibly a main grounding location. inconsistant grounding of the vehicles control module will cause erratic behaviours. check under the hood for ground locations containing multiple grounds at 1 bolt location.if different "experts" have attempted repair and failed chances are they are all looking in the wrong place.dash{interior of vehicle}..actual cause.{egine compartment or under side of vehicle..ie...ground locations.}good luck and safe motoring:>

I think i ran my mustang gt out of gas,i just got this car today from a good friend.It was idling in the drive way and then died without warning so i think it ran out of gas according to the guage!I put...


You need to make sure you put in AT LEAST 2 gallons of gas, more if the car is not level. It might take a few cycles of the key to get the fuel line primed again. A full cycle is Off-On-Start. When you turn the key to on, listen for the fuel pump. It should run for a few seconds and then shut off, turn the key to start for a few seconds and then back to off... This will have to be repeated several times. You should be able to hear the fuel pump from the drivers seat. I will be a faint hum or hiss coming from the back seats.

Took battery off v8 gt when put back car at stops tends to die a little but wont turn off, then it will go back to normal a small surge drop to about 500rpm


you need to ride the car, for a few more miles until the ecu makes some kind of self diagnostics and reprograms idle speed control if it doesnt then you should go to a shop for a idle programming, its done with a scanner that lets you enter to the ecu's k.o.e.o test (key on engine off ) and k.o.e.r. test (key on engine running ) and there the ecu is going to ask for idle desired adjustments

My 97 mustang 3.8l died on me as i was coming to a stop. I let it sit for 5 minutes and started it,in neutral it was fine, but when i put it in gear to move it died again and wouldn't start untili let it...


im going to just throw this out there but it could be the stand pipe in the fuel tank.i have a 96 gt and when i come to a hard stop or right hand turn the engine will turn off complety and sometimes will start back up so any way the only way to check this prob is to drain and drop down the fuel tank and see if there is a problem in the tank good luck

Beeping noise - 2005 Mustang


You know, I have a 2005 Mustang GT that honks randomly. MAKE SURE you troubleshoot it now. I waited and now my alternator is fried. About 95% of voltage disturbances can be contributed to the alternator, and from what I understand the alternators on our cars are notorious for crapping out. -Amanda
