Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Check all your vacuum hoses to be sure they are attached properly and also look for cracks in them

Something like that is sure wrong in #7. If you do a leak-down test, it should tell you if it is an intake or exhaust valve losing compression, or exactly what it is. A bent push rod would be a blessing. Then maybe you wouldn't have to take the head off for repairs. Roll a push rod over a glass surface to check for straightness.

Rough idle


What about the coil packs? Do you have a check engine light on? If so take it to an auto parts store and see if they will scan your vehicle for the codes.

Bought 5.0 engine with systemax installed. Said it ran great. I installed the engine and just put the a 255LPH fuel pump in. Adjusted fuel regulator to 42 PSI. Runs REAL ruff. Won't idle by itself. Black...


I think your 88 mustang contols the fuel air mix with a manifold absolute pressure sensor. Ive seen were the vacume line going into one has worked loose or broken cousing rough idle and throttle. llso check that the idle air control valve isn't plugged up with soot. This would also result in rough or loping idle but would be fine once the engine is hot. Let me know if this was helpful, good luck.

Z24 running rough and stalling


Try cleaning the inside of the MAF sensor, the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve, then disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and drive for a day or two, this should correct the problem or make it better.
