Need help diagnosing a problem with a 97 cobra
1997 mustang cobra setup as a drag car with MSD ignition/nos. (no nos hooked up atm)
I recently had a problem with getting it to turn over, it would kick hard but wouldnt turn over. I'd let it sit for a little bit and it would start up after ~15 minutes and disconnecting the battery. So I took it into a friends mechanic shop (20+years?exp) and he took a look at it and said it needed a crankshaft position sensor replacement & the wiring was shoddy on the msd ignition (ground wire hanging or setup incorrectly).
So he rewired it, replaced the sensor & sent me on my way. I get a block or two and the car dies out on me sitting in neutral at a red light. I get it towed back to the shop to wait and see what happened... It's now throwing a code for the computer? and the car runs, but not right. and now has the code.
The oo tells me the car needs to be tuned before it'll run correctly, the mechanic states its in rough shape and needs a lot more wiring work to be able to run correctly (never mentioned a tune).
So, any ideas? thanks
