1988 ford mustang gt bogs down when pushing pedal down
My car will almost stall when i punch the gas down from a stop. if i ease in its fine but it sputters when the gas is pressed quickly. i am curious if it could be some sort of exhaust problem or maybe a timing problem.

Re: 1988 ford mustang gt bogs down when pushing pedal...
Hard to say if it is related to exhaust or ignition timing if you take the car for a long drive and take a look at your exhaust manifold and if it is glowing cherry it could be related to your exhaust or timing a freind of mine had the same thing happen and the cataliytic was plugged and the timing was out. the cat was probly plugged due to the timing being out.I would also check the timing.It could also be an injector problem,fuel filter,or some other area of the fuel system these problems are hard to diagnose without actual hand on so just check those areas and let me know of any other symptoms hope this helps?

I may be able to lead you to the problem area, but it will take some work on your part. I had a 1988 Ford Thunderbird (I have a 94 now), and it sounds exactly like a problem I had. After completely researching everything, spending hundreds of dollars on parts for this and that, it turned out that it was the cars computer brain. I went to pick-your-part and bought a used computer module, and everything was fine. I paid $80.00 for it. Not only was everything fine, but my gas mileage and performance increased. This may not be your problem, but it is definitely something for you to at least investigate. I hope this helps.
sounds like a typical throttle position sensor problem, ye before you get there check the air filter and make sure that youf fuel is not contaminated it is either your TPS or the air flow meter is going bad both are expensive sorry
P1413 is the electric secondary air injection pump related, most times the issue is with one of three things, the relay for the pump motor is defective, the air injection hoses havwe come off at the pump, or the pump motor is defective, do you hear the pump run when you jumper the relay? check that first.
