    Mine also runs rough, it seems to missfire intermittenly,also at around 45 mph it seems to be worse, I bought a coil to swap out with the others so far nothing i'm currently checking the plug wires for any breaks and next will be the spark plugs themselves, after that i'm stuck.maybe it could be an injector. unfortunately i'm not that good with electronics. So if this comes of any help or if you have resolved the problem let me know.

Do a pressure test on the fuel pump. if that tests ok then check your sensors. is it shooting a code (service engine light)? Oxygen sensor at back of cat. converter, crank shaft sensor or throttle position sensor. Unfortunately sensors are hard to trace. These are the suggestions I recd. for my bravada. it idles great but dies about every 1000 feet or so while driving. cut it off and re-crank and go another 1000-2000 ft. and do it again, will start running rough until you kill the ignition and restart the truck. pretty sure mine is a weak fuel pump.

hi Jhlightcap.

The Common Problem: Rough Running Engine

A properly-operating engine should run smoothly and without excess noise. If your engine starts operating in a manner that gives you the perception of "running rough", it is likely due to a handful of common causes. A mechanic would investigate these common causes first in order to rule out a simple explanation for the engine's unsatisfactory operation.
The common causes for rough running in an engine are:
  • Engine miss
  • Vacuum leak
  • Dirty fuel injectors
  • Carburetor problems
  • EGR valve
  • Ignition coil
  • Spark plug wires

Mustang ran hot now starts but engine sounds rough, still running hot


this could be a number of problems , firstly with engine running remove radiator cap see if large bubbles of air appear, blown head gasket. second depending how long engine is running before temp rises to overheating, thermostat. third, O2 sensor could be damaged this will cause rough running and slight increase in engine temp.(unlikely if idles well) fourthly damaged valves (inlet/exhaust)
