Congratulations on your purchase. Are you saying the car wonít accelerate? Is the engine light on ? Do you have a tuner so you can see if thereís any codes.? If it wonít accelerate it could be in limp mode. Maybe a TPS? Your title says supercharger problems. Iím kinda confused!

Thanks for replying. I dont know about limp mode. The check engine did come on. I just assumed it might be supercharger problem. I been doing reading about supercharger oil level which I have not checked. I also noticed that ford dealerships are not much help. Once I get back home I will have codes checked. How do I fix limp mode problem and why would it go in that mode? I really appreciate your help.

Thanks

Limp mode or failsafe mode is something the ECM goes into when it detects a problem. If thatís what it is you would have limited throttle response and sometimes a higher or lower idle. First thing I would do is check and clear all codes, and see if it goes away. It could be a lot of things, hard to diagnose on the internet. Thatís where I would start if it was my car.

No way for ECM to determine or affected by oil level. Plugs, oxygen sensors, vacuum leaks, tune - it could be a variety of things. Good idea though to check oil level as you don't want the bearings to seize up.
When I installed a rebuilt transmission in my 06 a few years ago, I experienced a similar problem where the car would barely run. I discovered I had damaged an oxygen sensor - a piece of metal on the wire end had been hit and cut into the wires and was shorting the sensor. I straightened the metal and sealed the cut with boat gunk and haven't had the problem since. That's why I mentioned the oxygen sensors as a possibility. Scan would likely show that.

Thanks for everyone's input. I found out the diagnosis today. Lamotta performance found a program to install in computer.. The check engine showed I need to replace my cats, come to found out the cars were removed. I also found out the lack of power was my clutch was bad. I found a great shop here in Orlando Lamotta performance. Jake the owner has great experience in all performance mustangs. We will see how she pulls with new clutch and tune.
