If you use a key in the drivers door turn it as if your unlocking the door and it should shut off the alarm, but will not start the car if there is no chip/transponder in the key.

Engine turns over, stalls out and alarm goes off

These vehicles use Fords Securilock transponder system to prevent vehicle theft. Basically, there is a little radio chip in the key that transmits a code to the computer when you start the car. If this code doesn't match the computer, the computer disables fuel and spark so the engine won't run. If you have a spare key, try that to see if it works. If it doesn't work, then the Securilock system needs service. Unfortunately only the dealer can service this system because it is integrated into the vehicle computer.

If your spare key works, then the key you tried to use has a damaged transponder and the key needs to be replaced. If you don't have a spare key, contact a locksmith and have them make you a new key. I have to warn you, transponder keys are not cheap. They can cost easily $75 and some even go for $150. But, that is probably cheaper then having Ford make one and even if the spare doesn't work, when you get the system fixed by the dealer they can program your spare key as well so you don't waste the money on the key.

How do i reset the anti theft system ford mustang 2002 gt

The system reset any time the correct ignition key is turned to the run position or the door is locked and unlocked with the key, there is a sensor on the lock cylinder. If this is what you have done then already then the system have problem and you will need the dealer to scan it for fault codes. You may have a defective key transponder sensor in the ignition lock cylinder.

The upper radiator hose on my 96 Mustang GT is not pumping coolant into the intake manifold, it seems that there is alot of pressure in the hose?

The thermostat is behind here. The hose goes to thermostat-housing which is on top of thermostat on the intake. The thermostat is not opening.
