Mustang stalls out and some times restarts right after, then some time doesnt
I have a 1998 Ford Mustang 3.8L V6, while driving it randomly just cuts off
without any notification. then some times the CHECK ENGINE light comes
on and when the code is read it says CAM Sensor, I have replaced the
CAM sensor and it still continued to do the same thing, so my next thought
was the fuel filter so I replaced it and still kept stalling while driving. I
dropped the fuel tank and replaced the fuel pump and another fuel filter
and it still continues to die.I also recently replaced the alternator and
battery thinking it may be getting to much juice to the car but still dying any
suggestion guys? I am really leary about driving it now
So your just throwing parts at it. Scan for the codes again and post the 4 digit code back here.
Did you ever find out what was wrong with your car
My 1996 GT will act like it's running out of gas after long, start and stop or high speed freeway runs on warm/ hot days and then dies like it's running out of gas or the fuel filter is clogged. Once it has cooled down, it will start right up and short trips around town are no problem. No mechanic can get it to replicate what it's doing to me on long drives. Anyone had this issue? Fuel pump issue?
My 1998 3.8l Mustang does excatly what you just described GuruT97H4. I've spent thousands over the last 5 years and have taking it to numerous mechanics. I'm afraid to take it on trips because I have no confidence in it getting me back. It runs like a brand new car when I first start it up and once I get it running again (after the issues when restarting it after a 30 min run) it runs perfect again. When the check engine light came on it read that it the fuel was too rich (or getting too much fuel) I would just get rid of the car if it was any other car but this was my mother's car. She only drove it a hand full of times before she died and it means more to me than "just a car" I'd be willing to pay just about anything to get it running properly. Thanks for letting me know that I'm not the only one with this issue.
