Default RE: Need help diagnosing a problem!

I kind of had a similar issue with my stang just a little bit ago. I noticed that my car would kind of buck at low rps when lightly accelorating.

It turned out ot be a crakced intake manifold. Whole thing had to get replaced. Apparently this was some kind of "recall" with ford. Well it wasnt a typical recall. The shop said that if it woudl have been reported within a certain mount of years after the car was made that ford would have replaced it, however sine I had jsut reported mine this year (my car is a 1999 GT) that I had to pay for it. Luckily I had a third party warrenty.

Get the intake manifold checked. I let mine go so long that when the crack got bad enough It was shooting collant all over the engine and the car overheated.

Mustangs generally have a 'loose' feeling drivetrain, a lot of clunks and thunks are normal as long as everythign is in order.

I found a new polyurethane transmission mount really tightened the drivetrain in my 02 GT when I had the same problem.

When the MIL's failed on my 02 GT, when I would start it on occasion it would sound like it was rising from the dead very slow exactly like you described....I don't know why they would do that, but once I replaced them it never happened again.

I wouldn't worry about your fuel pump.

HMmm so maybe I could just check my MIL's? The rising-from-the-dead start-up has gotten alot worse.
