MUSTANG, 134,000 MILES
1998 Ford Other
I have a 1998 Ford Mustang 134,000 miles, the problem with this is that the car will crank but won't start, and it seems like it's not getting any fuel. I recently took it to a shop near by my house. They checked everything they could possibly can in that car but found nothing. They checked the computer and a code came out for the alarm system. They kept telling me that the Anti-Theft System was keeping the car from starting. They checked the fuel pump, they said it was good. They changed the fuel filter and still nothing. They checked three injectors and all three of them were good, they couldn't check the other three because it was out of their reach, atleast that's what they told me. All the fuses are good and everything seems to be in good condition. They adviced me to take it to a Ford Dealership, so I did. They told me that the repair shop I took it to was wrong, that there is nothing wrong with the alarm system, that it's all about the fuel system. They said that the gas tank, fuel lines, injectors, fuel rails were all rusted and clugged up. How is it possible for the whole fuel system to get rusted like that in a day. The car was working fine one day, the next it started doing this. The only way the fuel system can get rusted is if there is any water in the gas tank. And also either the injectors are bad. Now my question is, what should be the first thing to check on it. I was thinking about dry gas to desolve the water if there is any water in the gas tank, or get some fuel system fluids to clean the entire fuel system. And I know there is also some kind of fluid to clean off the injectors, will any of this help. And also, if three of the injectors are good, and if the other three are bad, can this be the cause of all of this. What if it's only one of the injectors, will the car still be acting this way? I can't seem to see anything else that I can do if it's not the fuel pump or fuel filter.
