Question about 1989 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

My 1989 Mustang 5.0 starts fine when the car is cold. After it is warmed up when you shut it off you have to wait at least 20 minutes before restarting or it turns over hard if you don't wait it won't start.

The first thing to check is to make sure the engine is not overheating. This will make it hard for the starter to turn it, due to the engine tightening up.

Ford mustang was making a whine/ rattling noise while doing 20-60 mph then after driving 20 minutes she died at a stop sign, would start up fine in park, but died when we tried to shift,what is wrong


Automatic or stick ?
If its an automatic, it could be something in the torque converter or transmission. The torque converter clutch could be stuck.

Electronic throttle control light comes on,car starts to idle rough and rpm hand went up


I am not to sure but I know that there is a process called the "Relearn" which mainly zinchronizes the throttle body with your ECU... But I am not to sure for a ford exactly I know that for a Nissan if you getting code P0507 the relearn Process will follow as: 1. Warm up the car to normal temperature of drive it for a few minutes and turn it off. 2. After you shut off the engine wait ten seconds. 3. Turn the Key to the ON Position but don't start the car. 4. Wait 3 seconds and press the gass pedal and release 5 times in whitin 5 Seconds. 5. Give it a 7 seconds and press the gas pedal and keep it pressed for about 10-15 seconds and the engine light should star blinking for about 15-20 seconds as soon as it stops blinking start the engine let it run for about 20 seconds and rev the engine up a couple of times then you can shut it off.
But I had a couple of time in which a rebuild piece might fail to sync with the relearn process...You might need to go with a new part....Good Luck. I am kind of sure that Ford migh have a forum those sites are very helpful because of they are Ford Vehicles owners that will post their solutions to similar issues.


Good Luck! CR.

1989 mustang shuts off when hot


Sounds like fuel vapor lock. The fuel gets hot and changes from liquid to gas before entering the cylinders.
Look for metal fuel line bent and touching hot engine part, or no longer in its clamp. You might also insulate the fuel line with pipe insulation from Lowe's or Home Depot.

1989 Mustang GT Keeps dying


Make sure the inside of your throttle body doesn't have a gunk build up. If so, clean in out with some carb. cleaner really well. If the crack is plugged up in the throttle body, air cannot get into the engine at idle in which the car will die. Are you running an aftermarket cam? If you are, drill a 5/32 hole in the center of the lower half of the throttle plate in the throttle body. This helps a great deal as well.

Its because that the engine is very cold, try to worm it up more time before you start driving.
