check the vacume pipes for leaks and cracks.
82crossfire-h4hpx0jsheu3g5mx3tchb5rl-4-0.gif Im hoping this is the engine as there is a number of different engines codes. but any sensor like air intake sensor or map sensor will need cleaning if it has bee stud as the dust will settle and stick to them, then engine will not get right information, also check the timing as a belt stud in the same place for a long time can stretch and even mold to the engine a can cause timing to be out. any engine that has been stud for long time even 5 years is a long time to be stud, will need an oil change and filters, if the spark plug leads are hard or crispy they will need replacing they should be soft and be able to wiggle. Iv heard of seafoam being used on an engine not been run for 10 years and that seam to clean out all the hard build up in the engine, but there is others you can use, but you need one that will be able to be sucked into the engine by the intake. injectors can stick or be clocked with old fuel residue. idle controller will probably need cleaning out aswell, use carb cleaner, MAF/MAP sensor needs a made for cleaner MAF has its own cleaner and is only for the MAF would thing carb cleaner would be fine for the map sensor, spray it inside and shack out again do this a few times. just to make sure its clean and any muck is out.

The dist. is a half tooth off location. Pull the dist. an reset timing. Be sure #1 cyl. is at the top and the rotor is pointing to #1 in the cap. or firing order.

Sounds like ignition control module (small plastic piece in bottom of distributor). When it gets warm it's shorting out. Easy fix, disconnect battery, pull cap & rotor - gin module is 2 screws in bottom of distributor and 4 wires - replace wires in exact order and coat bottom of middle with dielectric grease, replace rotor, cap & connect battery NEGATIVE CABLE LAST!

Am I missing something or is everyone answering the wrong question?
If I am reading this right you are having problems in your instrument cluster in your dash not being lit up on one side, correct?
If so it is most likely a burnt out bulb or two.

Yes. On the key you will see a chip. It is surrounded by black plastic that holds it to the key. Use an OHM meter and put the leads to each side of the resistor/chip/key. This gives the resistance. But i would unplug the ignition wire(under the dash) and put a resistor in it's place. A hundred dollar key, compared to 2 dollars.

Bulbs. Remove the bezel (I'm sure it is screwed On, find them), remove the instrument panel(definitely screwed on), remove the plug. replace the bulbs.

I changed a Ford transmission one time with a different tranny not made for that model and my speedometer was way out so I had to watch my speed on the hi way so not to get a ticket. I really can't answer your question.
