Question about 1994 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

1994 Mercury Cougar idles good but sputters when given gas.

It's a 94 Cougar with the 4.6 engine. It idles right, but sputters when I give it gas. It isn't like a dead miss but more like running out of gas or not getting enough spark. What should I be looking for?
Thanks, Scott

Vacuum leaks,Use carby cleaner sprayed lightly around suspect areas like injector seals engine will react and pin point a leak.H/T leads could be tracking or breaking down.Plugs may require replacement.Injectors could be dirty,try can of injector cleaner next time you fill the vehicle up.Is the air box and lid securely fastened and intake tube to throttle body leak free with no holes etc?There are a number of things it could be and tried to cover a few of them as its hard to imagine engine condition etc.Check that advance/****** can on distributor is functioning correctly(not leaking)Could also be air flow meter anyway let me know how you go Good luck

1992 Chevy S10 2.5L-4 cylinder. just started today outta no were. it idles really rough and pops then when i step on the gas it sputters and pops also smokes a little. help please..


My 1990 S10 pick-up had a similar problem too. It would start up fine (while the engine was cold) then once the engine warmed up it would idle very rough, sputter, and even stall out. My grandpa and I found what was wrong finally. The fuel distributor had been cracked, so when the engine warmed up it would miss (giving either too much or not enough fuel). So I recommend that you check that. Hope this helps.

94 Toyota Camry has rough idle.


check for a small vacuum leak speciallythe lines going to the throtle have someone look at it while you seat onthe car , idle ,FOOT ON THE BRAKE ! a way to test for leaks if to spray a lil wd40 around the lines an listen if the idle gets better or worst, sometimes the reason the engine runs to rough or lean are vacumm lines that are slightly broken.
