Check the plugs,they may have flooded out with fuel,you may have to change them,and you may have fixed the problem,but it will not start because the plugs are gas soaked,also the pick up coil in the distributor may be bad.This pulses the injectors also.

    When I checked plugs after several tries, they weren't wash with fuel. and can the pick-up coil be replaced rather than buying the whole distributer?

    The distributor has to come out,just mark everything before removing the distributor,and mark the gear,before removing it to replace the pick up coil,the pick up coil is not expensive.

My 95 mustang gt convertible will turn over strong but won't crank

usually crank means turning over.. possibly you mean that it turns over and will not start ? YOu have to find out if it is lacking fuel or lacking ign fire to the plugs. Then fix which ever it is.. you did not tell us if it is a 6 cyl or a 5.0 V8 The V8 is a much better engine.
Lack of fuel. Cloged fuel filter, or aa bad fuel pump or a bad fuel pump relay or fuse, IGN problem bad coil, dissconected wire that makes coils work, The worst possibilty is the computer not sending a single to the IGN.

Car wont start

My routine to check non-starting motors: (petrol/gas models)

  • Check immobilizer status
  • Check fuel supply -does it reach the fuel rail when starting. If not OK, check 12v supply to fuel pump when starting. If OK, fuel pump maybe dead.If not present, check fuel pump fuse and relay.
  • If fuel supply is OK, check spark ignition. If not OK, follow the supply circuit backwards to the ECM. Coils and/or ignition amplifier connector should have one 12v supply to it when ignition switch is on.
For Diesels with 'common rails' you can take same approach for fuel. No ignition testing possible. The diesel fuel pump still needs battery power. It will make some sound when IGN is on. If not, check ALL fuses and relays.

1996 bronco starting

Need to find out if there is spark while cranking first. Check at the coil wire first then at a plug wire.If there is spark at the coil and not at the plug the fault is the rotor or dist. cap.If there is no spark at all,suspect the ign. module. If there is good spark move on to the fuel pressure check.It needs about 40 lbs. to run.

95 GT mustang wont start

You ran the car out gas and there's air in the system.. Not the Throttle Body.. Expel the air from the system.. 1. Raise/Support your hood.. 2. Turn your key to the ign position, (listen for the fuel pump to come on).. 3. Go to the fuel rail(s) and press the Schrader Valve, (looks like a tire air valve), until only fuel comes out.. (use safety gear, especially for eyes) 4. Rinse/Collect excess fuel before cranking (careful around electrical connections)

My 2001 Mustang Convertible hesitates on starting up or when going up inclines. Just yesterday it did it just while I was driving. Could this be the fuel pump?

It COULD be....but it could be other things too. Have you changed the fuel filter?

In regard to the fuel pump...does it only do it at startup or on inclines? How about under heavy acceleration? You can put a gauge on the fuel rail to check pressure coming from the fuel pump. There's a Schroeder valve on the front passenger side of the car at the end of the fuel rail to hook onto. Good place to start...

I've changed the fuel pump on my '01 GT convertible..not a real difficult task, but not much fun either. I recommend you join us on Modded Mustang Forums....( LOTS of good info and help there. Good luck!
