Default 95 5.0 sputter/backfire

I have a 95 mustang 5.0 that around 2-3 thousand rpm stutters and stumbles under light throttle but under full throttle is fine anyone else have this problem?

If the check engine light briefly makes an appearance during the stumbling, start looking for a EGR position sensor problem.

Have you checked for codes yet? That's where I would start.

only codes i get are cooling fan relay failure. and o2 sensor lean on right bank. Check engine light comes on when i set the cruise. or hold the throttle steady

GT's running lean will spark knock... it a sad side effect of the 55 of timing that the ECM tries to use at low loads.

clean your maf, do a tune up, set your timing to 10BTDC, and replace your O2 sensors.
