Angry WTF, plz help, mustang dying....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aJs5IcrGos

its been doing this for a few months now after it sat all winter, your thoughts/opinions on the problem?

so far i have replaced the inline filter, new plugs, cap, rotor, plug wires, cleaned the IAC and MAF sensor, searched high and low for vacuum leaks found only one and plugged it good. next step is going to b investing in a fuel pressure gauge and obd1 scanner...


PS, plz dont get on me about the wheels...im quite aware of the amount of radiating from them. they came on the car and they arent my biggest concern at the moment....

I know it's expensive, but put fuel in it! Seriously though, is that warmed up, or cold? it seems to be starving for fuel. check the pressure. you don't need a guage, just push the valve in on the fuel line and see if it shoots 10 feet or so.

Sounds like a fuel problem. Maybe the fuel pump.

it has fuel pressure out of the test valve, i was going to go fill up the gas cans and fill it up to c if it was somthing as dumb as that as soon as i can.

the pump sounds normal but i was kinda shying away from that b/c i dont wana do the work to change it if it isnt that.

annnd i drove it about 6 miles home no problem from the spot in the video (which was taken a month ago) i wiggled and hit everything i could and it ran fine so i hurried and drove it home but the next day when i went to go start it, same problem....

Well you video did very little to hear the problem if you are having engine problems it would have been nice to be able to see the motor while you where doing what you where doing. All I could hear was the wind hitting the mic and the starter kicking iin.
Here is something I would like to know it ran before you put it away??
How many miles on this engine ??
Did you fog the engine before you set it for the winter??
Did you put gas stabilze in it before you stored it with a full tank of gas??
And last but not least how well did it crank the frist time you tried to start it this year cranked easy, sorta hard, real hard like something was stuck, or you don't know???
If by chance it didn't have alot of gas in it then your problem could be just a cloged fuel sock in the tank or water .
This is just a few thoughts for in general for any car.
The other thing to try is disconect the battery leave it off over night reconect and start it.This could clear up the computer.

120,xxx on the engine

and it was moved about 6 miles from my grandparents garage back to my house and back there again about 4 times, it just needed a jump, no i didnt "fog" it or put stabilizer in the gas. it started doing last fall right b4 1 put it away now that i think of it, every so often it would run perfect, so i took adavantage of it and moved it while i could, then next start up. dies
