    ]My car has been sitting for over year, have broken back and clutch was fubared. Finally swapped clutch and PP out works great, went back to a stock clutch.
    Now charged battery for 2 days hit the key no start, squirt gas into CAI/throttle body and runs, will run untiil I turn off than won't restart. I swapped the throttle position sensor and the 3 wire plug, thought that was the problem wire were all exposed and rotten. Wehn the car does start with help(prime with gas) is runs but when I try to gas it falls on it's face.Fells like when you have CAI off, will idle will throttle up slowly, but if I punch it it stalls and than have to prime again.
    Any ideas all of a sudden this is my son's only transportation.


    I call this car Frankenstang, 01 Gt with a 02 Police Intercepter swap

    Sounds like fuel delivery but I could be wrong

    Sounds like bad gas to me, drain the year old junk out and put some fresh fuel in it. Wouldn't hurt to check fuel pressure though.

    change the fuel filter too.
    You can rent a fuel pressure tester from the parts house. your supposed to have 40psi with the vacuum removed from the regulator, While your there pick up a haynes/chilton manual.

    start simple and check your fuses. Don't bother with the maual, pull each one out inspect it and then replace it if needed. Do the box under the dash and the hood, if they are all good check the inertia switch in the trunk.
