If its in park or neutral can you rev the motor or does it stumble on itself?

Start by checking for vacuum leaks, compression then a scan for fault codes. One of those should turn up a problem

I am having trouble starting my 1991 ford mustang lx 4 cyl 3.2 l when it dose start it runs really ruff and when i put it in gear and press on the gas pedal it does not accelerate but acts like it is not...


I would check the timing could have jumped a tooth on the timing belt/chain. Also check the rotor in the distributer make sure that it is not worn out. I have also seen a plugged catletic converter cause big time power loss and really strange problems

Ford mustang was making a whine/ rattling noise while doing 20-60 mph then after driving 20 minutes she died at a stop sign, would start up fine in park, but died when we tried to shift,what is wrong


Automatic or stick ?
If its an automatic, it could be something in the torque converter or transmission. The torque converter clutch could be stuck.

Mustang 89 4 cyl 2.3 l engine starts on parking dies out on drive


if the nuetral safety was a problem the car would not start at all, sounds like you have a defective engine wiring harness, this is the most common cause of this i have seen while working for Ford.

Dies after running about 2 minutes


It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

Stalls


he diff between a lockup vs non-lockup torque converter is the lockup simply locks the torque converter to the transmission direct electrically so there is no slippage in high gear. And there is no advantage to using a 2300 rpm stall converter if you are running a basically stock cam. However if you insist on this high stall speed torque converter you'll be able to lay down some impressive black marks froma standing start! One final note...unless you change your rear end gears your RPM's at a given speed remain the same. All the 2300 rpm does is your motor will rev a bit more before you start moving
