Question about 1995 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

I \r\n I have a 95 ford mustang and when i start it sometimes it idles very low(500 to 800 rpms) and sounds like its gonna stall. Also not all the time but sometimes i go to take off and give it gas it and its as if i'm giving it no gas even if i am almost flooring it. Yesterday I was driving and had cruise control set and it started staggering so I turned cruise off and tried to manually give it gas and it just kept lossing speed drastically. I pulled off and it kept trying to stall so I cut it off for a minute and restarted it and it was fine and ready to go. any ideas?????

Run the fault codes and check for MAF/VAF sensor , accelerator position or throttle position motor problems
check EVAP for venting problems

Why does a 1995 foed mustang gt just stall and wont restart.

Very late but for anyone else with this problem. I used to have this occur when I drove around for a bit. I'd drive and after 5-20 mins the car would just stall on me. It wouldn't start immediately and sometimes just waiting an hour or 2 and trying again made it start and drivable for a few minutes again. The problem was the ignition coil. I spent over $1400 changing parts to find out it was an $18 fix and took 10 mins to swap out. If the rpms do jump around a lot then yes the stator would be the problem. If it just stalls even while driving, it's the ignition coil. If neither, test the voltage regulator. Hope this help. Happy driving!!

2001 ford windstar rpms drop low when idling and sometimes stalls

How long has this been going on? When a problem like this develops, it's always a good start to check for any fault codes in your engine's computer. Autozone and a few others will do a scan for free and give you any code numbers and technical descriptions, if the computer has stored any faults.
If you've kept track of normal maintenance over time, then a low idle should be a fairly easy problem to fix. That being said, it's not so simple. The computer controls your idle speed under all conditions, and relies on several sensors and switches (inputs and out puts) to work effectively. Have your mechanic check it with the low idle, dying problem in mind. Sounds to me like it needs tweaking-idle control valve, throttle position sensor, air flow meter. See? Get the proper diagnosis, so you don't buy unnecessary parts.
Maybe our ford guru, emissionwiz, will stroll along and find your fix from memory (he's the best).
