Question about 1999 Ford Mustang Cobra

1 Answer

Engine turns over, takes several trys to start

Engine turns over but takes a long time to start I have to turn the engine over 2 or 3 times. I am a college student in San Diego. The weather is not hot, nor is it cold. Could it be fuel injectors? Does not seem to be the battery.

Trouble starting montana sv6 after running out of gas what could be wrong

When you run today's vehicles out of gas, the fuel pump is pumping nothing but air, and fills the whole system with just that... air. You have to be very careful not to run out, but when you do... cycle the key on, and off several times before trying to start the vehicle, without turning the engine over. You should hear the fuel pump cut in, and then out. After it cuts out, turn the key off, and then to "on" again, and repeat. If it won't start after several trys, you may have damaged the fule pump, or at the very least, plugged the fuel filter.

After turning the key several times the starter will engage

hi, If when you turn the key the engine dont turn over untill after a few tries usually it works sometimes then other times it takes several tries to get the engine to turn over.
This is a common problem and easily solved you need to get the starter motor replaced this isnt expensive to do and will only take couple of hours.
If you have never done one before then leave it to the experts ok.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Starting engine problems

It seems to be a PCM failure. (Power control module). I would suggest that you take it to a good mechanic. it is fairly easy to remove and reinstall. But if it is a different PCM you will have to do a re-learn on the PCM. that is not that easy. but if you find somebody to do it, it is worth it. Be sure and tell them you know that it is the PCM. I really hope this works for you. it is worth the try. Better than having all those problems.
