Hi, tony 96

This sounds like you either have a problem with an upstream O2 sensor, or the EGR valve is sticking open.

If the orange engine management light is illuminated, then you should have a code read carried out, which will point you in the right direction as to a repair.

I will add that the most likely scenario is a faulty O2 sensor, and this can be checked via a live scan at any reputable garage. In fact, I do believe Autozone perform scans and code reads for free.

If you do have a code read done, please don't hesitate to let me know what the code or codes are and I would be more than happy to decipher it or them for you.

Very best regards

Car starts fine and seems to idle normal with only a small "hitch" or "bounce" in the tachometer every once in a while, meaning the rpm's dip slightly and only for a split second. This happens maybe 15...

Check your fuel pressure regulator, just pull the vacuum line off of it and see if it is leaking fuel, it is found on the fuel rail, will be the only vacuum line on the fuel rail.

Clean the throttle body with c.r.c. get it at autozone ect.The t.p.s. (throttle position sensor) could be acting up.The t.p.s. controls how much air/fuel enters the throttle body and if your problem only happens in the summer this may be your problem.

01 mustang gt

it sputters....which means something is not playing the game...all engines follow the basic laws of needs air..evenly to all cylinders. a function of the mechanical parts...(valves and rings sealing the pistons) and a function of the intake system ..where it also gets its mix of fuel into the air..(also needing to be even and timed correctly) and spark to light the problem could be no or too much air or fuel..or spark...if no codes are present... the computer is also suspect for it manages these things normally...get it scoped

1988 ford mustang gt bogs down when pushing pedal down

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?
