I have a 2001 3.8 L mustang, it sat for about a year tried to start fuel pump out, ran great previously. Replaced fuel pump motor only, cleaned tank changed fuel filter and it ran great for about 60 miles. All of a sudden running rough misfires, knocks rough idle. Replaced all plugs, coil pack, EGR and 2 injectors (3-4)which showed misfire on diagnostic. First start idles great feels smooth after 15 minutes same conditions occur, sooner when driving. What should I test the fuel pressure again?

Your fuel system may be all gummed up. Run some Seafoam in the gas tank and some Heet water remover as well. It may take a few tanks to clear up the problem.

Use the Red Heat bottle...it has isopropyle that would break down any water that may have collected from condensation.
