1995 Ford Mustang V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 91.000 miles

if I try and take off hard, the cars just dogs out after ithe throttle gets half way down if I jam the pedal down, if I do this from 1st to 3rd and lift, and just shift normally, and throttle normaly the check engine light will come on, thru 4th and 5th gears, but will go out after 30 seconds of driving normaly, and if I am trying to pass someone, and shift down to second and nail the throttle, it just dogs out and has no power, also when I drive from nc to mass, after driving 6 or 7 hours, when I come to a stop at a toll booth, the rpms go up to 2000.I have to turn the car off for a minute, then all normal till I have to use the clutch again. Any suggestions, cats?Fuel regulator? Im stumped. Thanks. Bob.I did make a donation

First thing you need to do is have the codes read, Autozone does it free, Post the results with the code number(s). Even if the service engine light is not on, there should be freeze frame data stored.

Or do this and count the flashes...Count the flashes, a 22 will flash as 2 flashes then a short pause, then 2 flashes, if more than one code is stored, the pause will be longer. The codes will display three times and end with 11 or 111. Write them down and post here.

.I HAVE ALREADY SCANNED WITH OBD2 AND RECIEVED NO CODES, I REPLACED THE FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR, AND IT IS A LITTLE BETTER, NOT QUITE AS DOGGY, BUT STILL LACKS THAT HARD TAKE-OFF AND SOME POWER LOSS. BOB

You have an OBDII connector? 95 should be OBD I style, and if the light flashed, there should be keep alive memory info stored. You need to test OBD I both KOER and KOEO.
