Question about 2001 Ford Mustang
While I was driving, my car started to hesistate when I press the gas while going between 65 - 75 mph. It sounded like it was going to shift gears but did not. Later, after the car was off for about 3 hrs I attempted to drive at the same speed and the car started having the same symptoms, this time the "service engine" light started flashing. I stopped the car, revved the engine a few times, let it idle...but it was not at the normal rpms. Then I attempted to drive it again. This time there was a burning smell, not rubber..., and it was hesitating more so I continued to slow down. I stopped the car at a transmission shop and I have'nt driven it since. I was told that it might be the transmission but not sure....HELP
The burning smell that wasn't rubber is probably the smell of your brakes overheating and melting. but, if you have the money and time, go out and buy an OBD2 code reader. it should read the engine service code from the engine computer in your car. this will tell you what is wrong.(you will probably have to look up the code it gives you on the internet). or, you can take it to a regular shop and have them check the code. but if you know the code, you won't have to pay for something they say you need but don't.
