Very rough idle, knocking and no power (03 GT)

Well, the rattle stopping when you press the clutch would indicate a clutch problem. If it were me, I'd be pulling the plugs to run compression and leak down tests to be sure of the condition of the...

I wonder if his gas tank vent is clogged, not letting air replace the gas as it is depleted from the tank.

HAAAAALP!

Then it's either a clogged fuel line or filter, faulty fuel pump, or faulty fuel pressure regulator. I'd try the regulator first.

Turn the key from off to run, but don't crank the engine. You should hear the fuel pump run for 2-3 seconds.

4.6 runs rough, rich, stumbles terribly shortly after startup.

Ok, from what I understand, it started running poorly the minute you put the new intake, throttle body, and plenum on? I know it's a pain, but if you have the stock pieces, you may want to switch...

4.6 runs rough, rich, stumbles terribly shortly after startup.

Was this while idling in the driveway or driving down the road at very low RPM? That engine load reading is way too high for just idling.

I think your tune is way off. The injectors are...

4.6 runs rough, rich, stumbles terribly shortly after startup.

I bought a blue tooth OBD II adapter on Amazon for $25 and paid $5 I think for the Torque app. Together they do everything I'm talking about.

4.6 runs rough, rich, stumbles terribly shortly after startup.

If it was running that way before, it's not likely that the performance parts are causing the current problem. HOWEVER, they are not helping, either. It would have been a better idea to get the...

By your descriptions, it sounds like you keep looking for a vacuum leak, yet you say the engine is running rich. What makes you think it's rich?

First, you have to understand what a MAF meter is. Basically, it's a wire placed in the air stream with a thermistor attached to it. Your engine computer tries to keep this wire at a specified...

Well, I got the cylinder leak down tester yesterday. Today I put it on the cylinder with the lowest compression, #5. I set it at TDC and it's leaking past the rings so fast that my little 5 gal...

They will come out fine. If it were red Loctite, it would be different. I've used blue just like this before.

2001 mustang gt stalling issues

If you are smelling raw gas, you obviously have a leak somewhere. As for running poorly after adding fuel to the tank, my only guess would be sediment in the fuel tank, especially with your high...
