Question about Ford Mustang
When I hit the accelerator I would here a clanking sound. Then it would just go away. I was driving home when all of a sudden I heard the clanking sound, I saw that the oil gauage was all the way down also.I stopped and turned the car off. When I statrted the car again, the noise went away and the oil guage was normal. Seeing that I had a problem, I made my way home quick. I attempted to take my car to a garage and the car was running fine, all of a sudden again I heard the clanking, the oil guage went low and the car cut off. I hasn't started since. It is a 1999 Ford Mustang GT Convertible V8 60,000 miles.
I'm afraid what you're describing sounds like your bearings went out. Your engine is probably seized up or blown. There is no cheap or easy fix for this problem, your engine will have to be rebuilt or replaced.

Tips for a great answer:
Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:
Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned off.
Ignore the accelerator pedal input.
Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
