Hello, I have a 2002 Mustang G.T. (manual) It currently has a JLT Intake, and a DiabloSport Tune.
Well the problem I'm having is that; it's having problem turning on, but it doesn't do it all the time, only once in a while, and when I'm parked in a incline position with the front of the car a little bit up. (Twice I parked like that, and twice it did it)
All the electrical stuff on the car turns on, (headlights, radio, etc.) so it can’t be the battery or the alternator. Could it be my starter? What do you think? Thanks in advance.

Do you crank it over as soon as you turn the key? Try letting the fuel system prime a bit for a few seconds. Then crank it over. Or what has never failed me is letting it prime, turn key off and do it again then crank (second time is like only a second).

I have the PPRV (or whatever that is) deleted so i have to do it, but it might help you too. Maybe fuel filter needs to be changed.

/agree with 2kstang...need some more info, if the car cranks and doesnt start its probably not the starter and it may be something with the fuel system like the filter or pump but need more info about the problem.

Mine did the same thing last year. The power cable going to the starter was loose. I got a zip tie around it to hold it in place and it's worked fine since.

When you turn the key, if you hear a clank underneath it's your starter. My guess, is that there is either a loose ground or one of the live wires on the starter is loose.
