Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

1993 Grand Marquis keeps lurching forward when driving. Acceleration is very poor because of this. Sometimes the check engine light will come on when it lurches and sometimes it won't.

Just changed Trany fluid 1 month ago. Seems to be worse when roads wet/snowy. Other suggestions have been: Mass Air Flow Sensor, Clogged fuel filter, or EGR valve?

SOURCE: Engine will not idle, stalls at stop lights etc - EGR code

To me if the engine will not idel and stall once you have stopped, that points to an IAC (Idle Air Control sensor) which is located on your throttle body.  The part is very easy to get to and changes out pretty quickly.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

SOURCE: 1999 pontiac grand prix . will not run

If wiggling the wires cured the code, then one of the wires is broken inside the insulation. Pull on each wire one at a time. look for the colored insulation to stretch, this will be the broken wire. For the other car that wont rev up, this is a common when the catalytic concverter is plugged up. This will also cause MAF codes, and in turn, TRAC OFF light.

SOURCE: Need Mass Air Flow Sensor for my 1997 Buick LeSabre Custom

not unless you take it to autozone and have them put the scanner on it and clear the code which caused the light to come on. also they can tell you what the original issue was.

unfortunately it sounds like you just started to replace parts and honestly you could have already repaired the issue

SOURCE: saab 2006 1.9tid 150 acceleration problems to 2000

This is usually the first (cheapest) place to start. The MAF (mass air flow) meter is designed to sense and adjust the vehicle engine to changes in air temperature, speed, density etc. to keep your vehicle running properly. Since you already had your EGR replaced (yet another possible source of this sort of problem) I would tend to lean more toward the MAF. If you run any sort of aftermarket intake such as a k&n etc. these can cause problems for certain vehicles that are very sensitive to air flow as Saabs tend to be. Also the oil used on filter elements such as k&n can ruin the sensitive MAF. This unit is generally easy to fix (it's the little box with wires running to it) mid way up your air intake tube just past the filter. They aren't too terribly expensive either. Try this and hopefully this gets you up and running.

It's your fuel sending unit.

Do I need to let my 1993 Grand Marquis idle for 5 minutes before driving in the morning?

Based on the year of your car, would not be a bad idea to warm it up. After many years, engine components have worn and could show as poor engine performance. A good way to help is by adding engine oil additive when you perform your service. May be a good idea to add fuel additive once every other month. When fuel tank less then half tank, add additive and fill tank. This will help mix better.

I have got a mercury grand marquis 2003 LS ultimate and having a knocking noise for few seconds when accelerating sometimes specially when the engine is hot and that will reduce the power. any ideas?

When you say the engine is hot are you talking about the normal operating temperature? Has the Check Engine or Service Engine light come? If so, was the On Board Diagnostics system checked for a codes? Usually a knocking sound during acceleration indicates a improper fuel mixture or low octane.

Poor throttle on 1993 mercury grand marquis

You may have something clogging the pump filter in the tank.
I would start with checking the fuel pressure cold and hot.
Also that check engine light may give you a clue if the computer stored a trouble code.

I have a 96 Mercury Grand Marquis. The car lurches while driving feeling like it will conk out. Usually when going uphill on the highway and trying to accelerate or maintain speed. This does not happen all...

I have a 96 Grand Marquis with a similar problem. Also on the highway it would just conk out on me suddenly, almost felt like I was hitting the brakes, then it would pick up again. Eventually got to the point where it was stalling out on the highway and at red lights. One day it wouldn't start. Mechanic said the fuel filter was clogged solid. It has run well but every once in awhile still stalls out on me. From talking with other Grand Marquis owners and the mechanic the Mass Air Flow sensor may be to blame. He wanted to charge me $400 but I found the part online for about $85.

1993 grand marquis while driving the head lights goes off and on

check your connections at the headlights especially if they are sealed beams with the three way connecter sometimes they will get corrosion, or dirt and not get the propper contact vibrations from driving will cause them to lose contact.

next check your headlight relay it could be going bad and not pulling the internal switchinside of it to close.

hope this helps.
