Customer Question
The wrench light come...

The wrench light come on and my check engine light has been on and they said the reason my check engine light was on because of the fuel rail sensor well today I washed my motor and got back in it and my wrench light was on and it barely wants to run and when I give it gas it don't do nothin but sometimes I'll get lucky and it will start up and go! But it will spit and sputter

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

It stays on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2005 Ford Mustang 4.0 v6

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mustang yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've been watchin so many videos and I don't know what to do anymore I've tried a lot of stuff but it's not fixing it but my brother pulled a fuse and put another one in the same place and I gave my car gas and it worked but my engine light and wrench light was still on and I got got the house and it started doing it again well I got it started up and running and I was going down the road and I press the gas all the way down and it didn't really get up and go which it was accelerating but not like it usually does and it wouldn't go past 4 Rpms and I also shifted it down into 3rd going down the road and it started spitting and sputtering and it's an automatic car also

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No mam not that I know of!

Hello

1st thing to try is to locate the fuel rail pressure sensor, if you look on the top of the engine its should be the same as the attached image

with the ignition off disconnect the sensor and use some compressed air to blast both side clean and dry, ideally use some contact cleaner too, brake cleaner will also do the trick

then re-connect it and see if this clears the fault

you may have to do this for the rest of the engine sensors too

Ford Mechanic: Matt, Engineer replied 11 months ago

Hello
