Question about 2002 Ford Mustang
As a mechanic in order to fix a problem we need to diagnose it to begin.
We need facts and clues in order to proceed.
First steps are to find out if there is spark and fuel pressure.
The easiest thing to begin is checking for spark at the spark plug.
If no spark then you need to find out why. Too long of a list of problems that can cause this with out you making some checks first. Ignition coils, spark plugs, numerous sensors, wiring, switches, solenoids, fuses.....and on and on.
Was the check engine light on? If so it will need to be scanned to find out what is causing the light to come on. This may lead you to the source of the problem too.
Just because the fuel pump runs doesn't mean you will have proper pressures. It needs to be tested by a gauge hooked up to the fuel pressure test port.If the pressure is none or low, that will need to be repaired. Pinched fuel lines, plugged fuel filters, bad wiring connections
And then to the engine itself. Has an internal component broken? Timing chain skipped?
I'm not trying to scare you from doing this. Just trying to explain that as a person trying to help we need some basics before we can even begin to guess, and I don't like to guess, I like to be sure of what is needed to fix the vehicle.
Begin by telling us what the Mustang is equipped with...engine size, transmission (auto or manual), how many miles on it, has it been maintained, driven hard?
The more information you give the easier it is to pin it down.
Thank you for using FixYa.
