When changing the spark plugs it is always a good idea to check the white portion of the plug for long black streaks that seem to be stains These are known as carbon tracks the electricity from the plug wire runs down the side of the plug etching a path to ground this destroys the plug but also destroys the wire and must be replaced or the problem can return very soon after replacing the plugs

SOURCE: car spits and sputters and stalls after driving a while

sounds like a fuel pump problem,with fuel pumps u can have pressure but not enough volume,try goin up a steeper hill in 2nd gear and get about 3000 rpms on the engine and see if it really drops out bad and is really gutless,if that happens without a check engine light coming on it might be yur pump and u should also replace the fuel filter at the same time,hope this helps

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Focus LX, was sputtering while driving

change the fuel filter. and clean the mass air flow sensor usein a can of carb cleaner from any parts shop. depending on the miles on your car the timing belt mit have jumped a tooth. have to change it every 120.000 km.

IM NOT SURE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS BUT IT'S "NOT" YOUR BOOSTER. IF IT WAS YOUR BRAKES WOULD LACK POWER. MORE PRESSURE WOULD BE REQUIRED. YOU'D FEEL IT IN THE BRAKES IT WOULDN'T MAKE THE CAR SPUTTER IN DRIVE AND NOT IN NEUTRAL. SAVE MONEY IT'S NOT YOUR BOOSTER.

1993 mercury tracer


sounds like you have lost over drive. this means your transmission is begining to fail. next you will lose 3rd,or drive. when this happens it will only go to second gear. head strait fo a shop. only a matter of time for a rebuild. no quick fix. sorry,good luck.

To replace the headlight on a 1993 Tracer you must turn the black plastic retainer ring counter clockwise and then pull back gently. The ring and bulb should then slide out toward the engine.
Carefully grab the sides of the plug and pull the bulb out.
When replacing the bulb make sure not to touch the glass part or it will cause the bulb to burn out sooner. Place the black ring back over the bulb with the open end towards the glass part of the bulb. Fit the wiring onto the back of the bulb and insert the bulb back into the reflector. The black plastic ring has notches that fit over protrusions. Turn the black ring clockwise and your done. Test the headlight. Happy Driving
