Your car most likely needs a set of plug wires. and it will have a vacum leak on the back of the intake manifold some time soon.check both now good luck.

93 5,8l. Ford F150xlt throttle cuts out while driving, realese petal and works again.? New f filter and plugs wires


I had a very similar problem. Mine was caused by a weak in tank fuel pump. As long as I wasn't asking for too much fuel, it ran fine, but the moment I put my foot into, it would cough and sputter and try to die. But once I pulled my foot off the accelerator It would either cut off completely or idle and run fine, until I again would try to make it over the hill into Hillsboro. Hope this has helped you

Car sputters


a thought you may want to remove the fuel filter and see if it is blocked if you cant do this yourself a simple test can be performed a fuel pump pressure test if your fuel filter is good you may have a week fuel pump if this was helpful please leave me good feedback

I have a 1999 ZX2 ford escort that starts, but dies in seconds


It is was a gas filter problem blocking gas flowing from the pump. What happening was that when it was trying to **** the last drop of gas into the engine it really disturbed dirts inside the fuel filter and made it clogged at fine mesh. And also make sure give sometime for gas delivered into the fuel line it since it was empty when you change the fuel filter. It means you have to keep starting for a while so gas can go up to the fuel distributor then injectors.

Yea i need help with my ford escort?


Throttle position sensor? - that happened on my old XR3i, - same symptom, it starts PERFECT, but any more than a feather of throttle and it just cuts out, yopu cant even move it.
if that is your problem then change the Throttle Position Sensor.
The TPS is availiable at ford dealer, quite cheap £35 or so - and probably in stock if you are lucky, easy part to fit, one out one in...
