My sister in law has 1998 FORD MUSTANG 6 Cylinders 232 4 3.8L SFI. The car
will start after several tries but it wants to stall out if you give it gas.
My nephew changed fuel filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. There is
some backfiring in the throttle body when trying to get it started.
She does not have the money to bring it to a mechanic to have them put it on
a machine. Nephew managed to drive it to Autozone and they told him it was
the fuel pump or the mass air flow sensor. He did not get the codes from
them and I do not have a reader. Is there a way to read the codes from the
check engine light by making it flash?
Any ideas what may be causing her problem?
Thanks for any help given. Trying to help a single mom with a dead beat dad
save some money, if this is a problem I can fix my self.
