Symptoms:
1. Cranks fine tries to start sputters
2. Parts thrown at it
new coil, TFI and distributor (used) new set of plugs cap rotor
3. Spark checks good on 4 that were checked
played with timing no joy!
Checked TPS for correct voltage "key on" OK
Checked fuel pressure 33psi while cranking

The patient: 88 mustang 5spd GT 40 X motor B cam headers 255 fuel pump adjustable regulator, A9l computer with custom SCT chip
trick flow intake C&L mass air sensor and conversion to mass air cone 4 months agao pro products 75 mm throttle body and spacer. Cold air intake
Symptoms before it finally quit running over a weeks time wouldn't rev above 4k backfiring thru intake running like crap basically! After new plugs installed only #5 looks like it is firing all the rest are fuel soaked Myself and mechanic are now leaning towards a possible timing chain issue or it skipped a tooth! What you guys think? Help please or suggestions on what else I can check BTW tried another known good computer, no joy! This engine has maybe 25k miles

what size fuel injectors?, If you have bigger than stock(19#), have you reprogrammed your chip to run the bigger injectors?

Sorry I didn't include that with the patients history
24# injectors with correct cal tube for 24's
This car was running OK for the last few months then started this just lately.

Has your computer been reprogrammed to the 24# injectors, you might be getting to much fuel. 19# and 24# have different spray patterns. The same thing happend to me when I put the new injectors in my car, kept soaking the plugs.

Yeas it was tuned for 24 lb It put down 298 RWHP and 313 tq and was running pretty decent. The thing that has me baffled is that only the #5 plug seems to have any fuel burn pattern on it and it acts like it wants to try and start but just spins through a couple of cylinders firing and won't catch .

I will but we had spark on 3 5 6 7 8. Wouldn't that indicate a good coil?

Have you repalced the stator in the distributor. You mention used dist are you sure it is ok, where did you get it, used parts can be junk, did you try taking your old dist out hooking the leads to it, take the coil wire and hold it 1/4 inch from manifold, spinn the dist with your hand the spark should be blue and constant if not replace stator and module with NEW and try again.

OK, next test.
A bit dangerous, but effective.

Lift the fuel rail along with the injectors out of the intake manifold.
Just about an inch so you can see all 8 injectors.
Power up the key and see if all 8 are spraying?

All the plugs are wet with fuel (new ones) too. One plug #5 looks like it is firing the rest are still look new other than fuel soak.

did you check to make sure the plugs wires are in the right firing order on the cap? after reading all that was said , it could just be that.

Replaced harness, Still same! Dropped another distributor same! Only seems to be firing or one cylinder I have spark on all 8 verified with a plug out of cylinder. Also checked tps voltage, 097 vdc. Also tried a different iac motor/solonoid. Could it be a MAP sensor? The one on the firewall?

Probably gonna try a MAP sensor later this week when Five O fastback gets paid. He got a reply from someone on Bad Ass Mustangs.com saying that he had had a no start problem caused by bad MAP. Who knowS

I don't think so! It was getting progressively worse over the previous month or so. Hard starts etc would like to idle cold. Trying a MAp sensor this week.

What was the result of your "timing check"?

Don't automatically rule out the bad gas. You said it got progressively worse. How much did you actually drive it over that month??

I've had "bad gas" kick my ass a couple of times at work.

I've been keeping up with your post, and I can't think of anything else. The MAP sensor might be the culprit....but the MAP sensors I've seen go bad at least let the engine run, but the exhaust was black and sooty.

See if you can get a gas sample into a clear container and give it a whiff.

Bad gas will also NOT burn very well if you put a SMALL puddle on the driveway outside and light it.

Yeah! we had the upper intake off to pull valve covers to check for rockers loose and possible mechanical problems. I may just take the MAP off the 92 and try it.

Are there any trouble codes?

Have you checked/replaced the coil wire? It's the not revving over 4k rpm that makes me ask.

May have solved problem it is one of 2 things. Fuel pressure reg is bad (Holley cheapo adjustable) or bad injectors. Got a noid lite tester and checked harness checks good. Tried a shot of ether down the throttle body and it lit off and ran for a few seconds on all 8. Now JR just needs to get the parts together.

I should have tried this awhile ago.

It is a live again! Only down for 3 months .
Ne 24lb injectors new gas tank, gage sending unit pump strainer and filter. Flush the fuel lines Fuel looked like muddy water when we drained the old tank I found the problem when I pulled the old filter, It leaked the brown crap down my arm as I was removing it. The car had sat for 3 years before I bought it. I had to put a new pump (stock) in it to get it running. I flushed the tank before I put it back in but I guess the crap or damage was already done. We then had a 255lph pump put in before the dyno tune and that probably aggravated the problem more. My son was notorious for running the car low on fuel too. Which didn't help matters either. Weel it seems like a new car again, as he hasn;t driven it in quite a while.. Should have listened to DR ALex and pulled the rails up an check or fuel, I would have seen the crap sitting on top of the injector inlets. Oh well! Live and learn. Just glad its fixed now his mom can have the new Mountaineer back.
