Cadillac STS Posted July 21, 2005 Report Share Posted July 21, 2005 Not the cadillac * Mustang** Shortly after cleaning my reusable air filter with the K&N recharge kit I started the car and it was almost as if it was going to die, that’s because there was just about no gas in the tank... I actually drove it with the gas light on empty for about 40+miles...so I shut it off right away and I remember that I had some reserve gas from the Cadillac that was in a 1 gallon plastic tank. It's been sitting for awhile...I’d say more than 3 months maybe even longer. So anyway I dump everything (about a 1/4 tank) and I start it up...its starts up fine and I immediately drive to the gas station where I put in $13 buks of 87 into it. I drive 3 miles down to the local kraken and after leavening the store the car starts to hesitate, bog, you name it...as if it was starving for fuel....I then took it home and thinking the MAF sensor might have gotten some oil from the filter I lightly degrease the MAF wire/sensor...so I let it dry for a couple of hours and so I install everything and it still runs like crap...it even got to the point where the car would almost stall but I wouldn't let it. I know this is a Cadillac forum but the guys over at the mustang boards aren’t very quick to respond…any advice is welcomed!!! sor of running out of ideas....maybe i ruined the fuel filter? Or should I drain the tank of gas? the check engine light was on at one point, but after removing the neg battery cable for 10 min and reinstalling it it went away...I'd like to take it to atozone so i can check for codes..but id rather nto risk stalling everywhere on the way....HELP!!! Oh I almost fogot the car is a 1999 Ford Mustang V6 manual Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
