Sounds like you have timming chain problems. You can check this by putting your harmonic balancer on the mark that shows top dead center or 0 degrees, Once you have that done pull your number one spark plug and see if the piston is at the top of its stroke. You can also check this by loosening the hold down bolt on your distributor and while you have someone cranking the engine over move the distributor one way and then the other. If the engine tries to fire then you have probably jump some teeth on your timming gear which is the result of just plain old wear. Be careful when doing this as to not get your hand in the cooling fan!!!! If your mustang has high mileage on it then this is probably your problem. I recommend a double roller timing chain as a replacement because they last longer. Good luck
Are the injectors spraying fuel? did you check the coil? Did you check the timing chain. Need more info.
