Question about Ford Mustang

2 Answers

My 94 mustang, 3.8 V6 turns over but will not start. It has new plugs, wires, coil, new ICM, but still wont start, we have fuel, you can smell it, and when we took out the plugs to gap them they were covered in it, so I don't think it is that. Is it possible it could be the computer? I am stumped???

Sounds like no spark. Check the electrical system for power to the coils etc.

SOURCE: wont start has fuel and has spark

RC ralston
Your problem is a leak in the cpi pletium most likely the pressure line has a leak
had same problem with mine $45.00 PRESSURE LINE KIT AND $15.00 GASKET FOR PLETIUM and 2 hours labor problem sovled.
You can remove vortec cover and remove air regulator to look inside pletium. I had gas vapor on driver side . that is where fuel lines are. fuel regulator is on passenger side. turn key on and look in hole and see where fuel is spraying. taking pletium off you can again turn key on and make sure where fuel is coming from.

SOURCE: 1996 Achieva starts then stalls after 2 mins.

The only thing that you didn`t replace was the crack shaft position sensor.There are 2.One on the back of the motor and one by the crank shaft pulley.What you should do is remove the one in the back of the motor and look it over for cracks or swelling.This is the one that usually goes bad.Also you do not have to out die electric grease on this type of ICM nor do you have to do any reset for the computer.Check this out and let me know what you find.Good luck.

SOURCE: 93 mustang lx turns over

I suggest you check for spark by taking a spark plug wire off one of the spark plugs and using one of your old plugs and crank it over and see, it wouldn't be the first time a module died on a Ford. Plus if you have a fuel pressure tester hook it up and check for proper pressure if no gauge just shoot a couple of squirts of engine start or carb spray in the intake if it starts something wrong with your fuel system recheck wiring conections if you don't hear fuel pump, turn on key from 3 to 5 seconds fuel pump should run to prime fuel rail then stop, if not check fuel system.

94 camaro wont start...no firefrom the coil has new icm , coil , fuel pump


Check the icm plug with a led testlight for pulse while the engine is cranking. Test the wire connector with the small wires going into the coil for pulse.The v8 has a opti-spark distributor behind the waterpump that is prone to failure. It has the pickup inside it that tells the icm when to spark. If no pulse at icm distributor is bad. If pulse at icm but not at coil, icm or wiring between icm and coil is bad.The coil also needs pos.+ power on 1 terminal to operate. Be SURE to check the security light on the dash. If VATS [vehicle anti theft system] fails its usually within the 2 wires going from the key chip in the ignition tumbler to the body control module. Mine were purple and tan.Trying to start it with the wrong key can put it in lockout mode also. There are bypass modules available online for vats problems or you can even install a resistor in the wire to bypass the keychip part and the door alarms still work.

93 vortec V6 4.3L No start. New CPI, New ECM,New Distributor,New Coil,


Right at the coil is the ICM (ignition control module) These wire are known for poor male to female connection have some one crank it and you wiggle it to make contact,Also where the battery is is a power ground if that ground is corroded it will give code P1355.

Hello my mustang is sputtering badly, idles at between 900 and 1000 rpm. has a bad exhaust smell and acts like it wants to stall alot. the oem codes it gave were po303 and po316. what does this mean and...


303= cylinder #3 misfire the 316 is just another code for misfire detected during start up:
I would say buy a new plugs and wires, this will correct the problem, Tim

My 94 ford mustang is a 3,8 v6. It will turn over but wont start. I have checked everything and Im getting power to the coil box but no spark to the plugs, what do you think is wrong?


You can start here;

ICM Test

See Figure 1
  1. Remove the ICM from the front fender apron.
  2. Measure the resistance between the ICM terminals as shown below:
    1. GID-PIP IN: should be greater than 500 ohms.
    2. PIP PWR-PIP IN: should be less than 2,000 ohms.
    3. PIP PWR-TFI PWR: should be less than 200 ohms.
    4. GND-IGN GND: should be less than 2 ohms.
    5. PIP IN-PIP: should be less than 200 ohms.

  3. If any of these checks failed, replace the ICM with a new one.

2000 v6 mustang, acted like it wanted to start but didnt, then it did but ran like it wasnt getting enough gas. Then it died, and now it wont start at all, turns over,sounds like it wants to start. Changed...


check to see if it has a goo spark first it may have a coil problem the spark needs to be bright blue not yellow and it should be able to jump a gap of at least 1.1cm / 1/3" if the spark is good check the spark plugs are they wet the car may be over fueling eg. the fuel presser reg may be flooding the engine let me no how you go and i can try to advise you from hear
