Could be the fuel pump. Could be a clogged fuel filter. If the car has a carburator, you might want to check for a vacuum leak around the carb. You'll be able to hear a loud sucking noise when the car is idling. You can take a can of carb cleaner and spray it around the sides of the carb and the base, but not directly into it, and if the idle changes when you do that, you will have found the leak.

1988 mustang gt no turn signals ,hazards ,wipers,parking lights all work...checked relays,fuses,fusible links and grounds.....help!


More then likely its going to be the turn signal switch itself. With everything else working, the switch fr the signals probably wore out. Keep in mind the car is 21 years old.

I have no headlights on 1988 mustang gt turn signals brake lights and parking lights and dash lights all work but the head lights wont come on checked all fuses and relays there all good thanks


Check headlight lamps... then follow the wiring from the bulb connections back and make sure you're getting a good solid ground connection. It may have a loose, broken, severed grounding wire.. it's usually attached to the car body at some location not far from the headlights.

1989 Mustang GT Keeps dying


Make sure the inside of your throttle body doesn't have a gunk build up. If so, clean in out with some carb. cleaner really well. If the crack is plugged up in the throttle body, air cannot get into the engine at idle in which the car will die. Are you running an aftermarket cam? If you are, drill a 5/32 hole in the center of the lower half of the throttle plate in the throttle body. This helps a great deal as well.
