Question about 1996 Ford Mustang
I had a few heavy people in my 1996 3.8 liter ford mustang, driving over a long uphill i notices a few sudden lags in power, then this morning i went to start it up and after taking a long time ''4 secounds or so'' it started ran @ hi idle as it normaly does then kicked down and ran rough, i got out and looked under the hood and i could see the engine shaking, i check all spark plug wires and looked around, all seemed normal, i had to drive it, but by then end of the drive way the loss of power was so much i decided not too, also the check engine light has been on for about a month, but it always ran strong, i disconnected the batter and hooked it back up, the check engine light cleared for a moment then returned, it runs like its missing, i know i need to get the code read tomorrow, but do you have any advice as to the nature of the problem? has anyone seen this before??
Can't really say anything need the codes before I would predict anything. get codes scanned at Autozone its free.

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.
