    have you check to see if car is firing when you are trying to re start car. I know you said you replace pump and filter , but you can disconnect the air intake at throttle body and spray some starting fluid in and see if it will run more then two sec. let me know what happens from there we can go further. also you can just poor gas in throttle body.

1996 mustang dies and then will restart in a few minutes

Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.

1995 mustang wont start already changed fuel filter and pump is working is trying to start but wont

have you actually checked your fuel pressure? the pump can run but they have a filter sock on them inside the tank that can get clogged. Check the basics; fuel, air, spark, compression. Couldn't hurt to check your codes too, just in case something's in there.

I have a 1996 Ford Mustang GT 4.6. My car would start then turn off as soon as the theft light starting flashing, I tried disconnecting the battery, turning the key in both the passenger and driver doors,...

On the older fords the theft module has 2 plugs in them. You can disconnct one of them, I believe it is the right one , and disable the security system. Finding the module is the hard part. most are located in the middle of the dash.

'96 mustang w/3.8,replaced fuel pump &gas filter,after 2-3 miles,acts if problem getting fuel starting out or under power

Did you flush out the injector lines? Bad injectors are known to act this way. Check fuel pressure regulator for proper operation.

Cuts off in warm weather after about 10 miles

Don't rule out fuel pump. Had a 95 do the same, ran great when cool in morning then when it got hot in afternoon, it would quit. Wait 15-20 minutes & go again, sometimes got me home, other times a few more miles until it cooled down again. Luckily I had access to a fuel pressure gauge. Cool in morning had 49 psi, when it quit, 2 psi. Wait 20 minutes, 49 psi again. If you can drive it around until it starts to act up then run into a repair shop for fuel pressure test it will confirm it. If not, they may need it all day to monitor the fuel pressure & confirm it is pump. If your a gambler, change it & fuel filter. One thing I did get was trouble codes indicating a lean mixture, due to starving for fuel. Have you cycled your key to retrieve any codes yet?
