4.6L ford thunderbird engine cuts out

My 1994 thunderbird 4.6L cuts out and sometimes dies. when it dies I need to shut off the key before it will start again. it feels like a backfire but the tach drops to zero like the power was just shut off and then rebounds. most of the time the car will remain running and other than the cutting out it seems to run smooth.

Try changing the pick up sensor ,and cleaning the connections on the coil pack,could just the be the connections on the pick up sensor itself.Hope this is just your sunday car and your daily car is a small engined shopping basket type of car.thinking here and its hard as only ever seen one on an american tv show but if its all dropping off ???what about the ignition contact switch on the steering lock,its not loose or contacts worn ??my sunday car is a 4lt jaguar XJ6 sovereign so i cant call the pot black can i.But whatever it is, this is a stupid thing causing this and its down to trial and error to locate the fault

My 94 ford thunderbird will sputter and die when i first start it, and will do it when idling at stoplights, the check engine light will also randomly come on. I've checked the oil and transmissio


check your mass airflow sensor,( located on the air intake line,probably close to where it hooks onto the front of the car on driver side ,should be a square box with wires plugged into it) take intake hose off and spray filiment wire with brake cleaner to clean,do not touch wire with tools or hands it will break very easily ,let dry and replace hose and see if that helps.

Loud knock in front of engine


IT could be something as simple as a lose pulley or in a bad case something inside the motor. Really need to get a pro to look at it because anything else would just be a guess.

My 1994 Ford Thunderbird now smokes when I start it - no noises in the engine, but smokes like crazy. Check engine light is one now?


state what color the smoke is. White smoke is antifreeze. Gray smoke is fuel, and black smoke is oil. Also have the computer scanned so you know why the light is on.
