Haynes Service Repair Manual 1994 – 1997 Ford Mustang
This Haynes Ford Mustang 1994-1997 Repair Manual provides detailed service information, step-by-step repair instruction and maintenance specifications for all 1994-1997 Mustang automobiles.
Introduction to the Ford Mustang
The Ford Mustang is available in two-door sport coupe or convertible body styles and have a conventional front engine/rear-wheel drive layout.
The available engines on the models covered by this manual are: a 3.8L V6, a Single Over-head Cam two-valves per cylinder (SOHC-2V) 4.6L V8, a Dual Over-head Cam four-valves per cylinder (DOFiC-4V) 4.6L V8 or a pushrod 5.0L V8 engine. All models use an electronically controlled muti-port fuel Injection system. Later models are equipped with On Board Diagnostic Second generation (OBD II) computerized engine management system. OBD II monitors engine and emissions system operation for malfunctions. The check engine light on the instrument panel will illuminate if any component malfunction occurs.
Power from the engine is transferred through either a five speed manual or four speed automatic transmission and a driveshaft to the differential which is mounted in the solid rear axle assembly. Axles inside the assembly carry power from the differential to the rear wheels.
Suspension is independent in the front, utilizing struts and lower control arms to locate the knuckle assembly at each wheel. Coil springs are mounted between the lower control arm and the frame. The rear suspension features coil springs and shock absorbers.
The steering gear is a power assisted rack and pinion type that is mounted to the front of the engine crossmember with rubber insulators.
The brakes are disc at the front and the rear with vacuum assist as standard equipment. Models equipped with 4.6L DOHC-4V engines utilize hydro boost assisted brakes as standard equipment. Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) are optional on all models.
