Need to change air and fuel filters,not sure where they are ?

The air filter is in a rectangular box under the hood. It will have either 4 screws or several metal clamps that you just pop off. The fuel filter is in front of the right or left rear wheel attached to the frame. In 86 you will need a 5/8" and a 9/16" line wrench to loosen the two connections.

Mustang stalls when trying to drive and will shut down

Measure fuel pressure on injector rail - should be 38 to 40 psi. If low or fluctuating, then replace regulator. Another possibility is the in-tank filter being clogged - rare I know, but trash in the gas tank and it's clogged.

How do you remove & replace the rubber hoses that run from the gas tank to the metal fuel lines? The hose goes between the frame and body of the car I can not pull or push them out, so how are you...

Step 1-Determine type of fuel line to be replaced. Rubber hoses will have clamps on both ends that should be loosened with screw driver. Nylon and steel lines will have a ferrule at both ends removed and replaced using proper size line wrench

Step 2-Using proper size line wrench or screwdriver, loosen fittings by turning counter clockwise. Catch fuel remaining in lines in a gasoline safe container.

Step 3-Remove defective fuel line and install the new line or hose opposite of removing. Take care not to strip or cross-thread fittings as this will cause leaks.

Step 4-Dispose of remaining fuel in an OSHA safe container.

hope it helps-

Fuel filter

unbolt the filter from the bracket, that is a 5/16" machine screw head size, then remove the nylon clips that hold the lines onto the filter, hold a rag over the fuel line when u remove it, it will have about 30 pounds of pressure.

Is the fuel pump located in the tank itself on a 2001 sporttrack or is it mounted on the frame

The fuel pump is in the tank, the filter is on the frame rail, you must pull the tank to change the pump, also remember to always change the fuel filter with the pump, this is because metal and other harmful particles are most likely in the filter, these cause a restriction that can damage the new pump. I would suggest rock for the vbest price on a new pump assy. Thanks, hope this helps See repair below

I did the repairs at work using a lift and air tools. After I finished, I realized I could have done it in my garage using a good 3 ton or higher floor jack and 5 ton {min} jack stands. The air tools made the job easier; but, are not necessary. The job from start to finish took about 2 hours.
Run as much gas out of the vehicle as possible. the emptier the better.
Disconnect the negative battery post for safety's sake.
Loosen the lug nuts on the driver's rear wheel {for later removal}
Jack the vehicle up in the rear from both sides as high as safely possible.
Place extended floor jacks under frame rails. {use common sense safety}
With vehicle safely raised, test stability buy jolting rear bumper {be reasonable} better the vehicle falls now rather than when you are under it.
Remove driver's rear wheel to access fuel filler and fuel hoses.
Disconnect the two big fuel filler lines from the rear of the tank. Ford uses a plastic pinch clamp and rubber O rings. Its might take alittle effort to squeeze the pinch clamps, but don't worry, you'll get it. Wrap a rag around the clamps to get a better grip. Try not to use channel lock pliers, they will break the plastic clamps. Squeeze and wiggle the hose until it slides off the fuel tank.
Remove the safety clips on the two fuel lines at the pump. Using the special ford tool, slide the tool under the fuel pump hose clamp and pull both clamps off pump housing. They can be a little pain in the ****, but after you move them around and work with them, they will slide off. Be patient.
Place the floor jack under the fuel tank, putting the wood between them.
Remove the fuel tank strap bolts at the rear of the tank note the position of the rubber bushings and metal washers.
Just like the fuel filler neck hose, squeeze the pinch clamp on the vent hose and remove it...slowly. these clamps will break if abused.
Double check all hoses are cleared. cover the ends of the hoses to prevent dirt from entering the fuel system. { I used plastic warp from the kitchen}
Disconnect the electrical plug for the fuel pump located on the driver's side rear frame rail. It is secured in place by a tie-wrap locator clamp.
Lower the tank and clear it away from the vehicle. TAKE A BREAK...
Note the position of the pump housing in reference to the tank. the hose lines on the pump plate point off to the side a little.
Remove the 10 or so retaining bolts which hold the pump/sender in place.
Gently lift the assembly out of the tank, as not to bend the float arm or tear the nylon pump screen off and having it fall in the tank.
There is nothing to take apart, Ford sells the pump and float as an assembly. Parts are available after market; But, This is a job you want to avoid doing twice in the same year if possible. I recommend using the Ford factory parts. You get what you pay for.....
ASSEMBLING NOTES Use electric contact grease on the fuel pump plug if available. It is a weather pack seal; but, the grease keeps condensation from forming on the inside of the connector.
Use a little silicone spray on the fuel filler and breather hose O ring seal before connecting back on the tank. It helps them slide on better. You'll hear the clamps click when they are seated correctly.
Fill the tank with enough fuel to get vehicle running. Check for any leaks or fuel odors. If ok...head for the gas station.
Connect the battery. Be sure the ignition is off to decrease the spark at the battery post.
Start the vehicle and allow the Engine Control Unit to adapt. When the power is dis-connected, the engine control unit has to learn the running values again. Don't worry, it only takes a minute or two. The ride to the gas station is more than enough.
The best part of this repair is you probably saved yourself about 2 to 3 hundred dollars. Hope I didn't confuse anyone.....
