Engine shutters and hesitates on my 2004 4.2l ford freestar

    while driving, hot or cold, the engine hesitates. RPM's don't drop and it only does it every now and again. After it hesitates, it goes on like there is no problem.

Check exhaust compression. Remove O2 sensor before the cataylatic converter and see if the hestiation stops. If it improves then the cats are cloged.

06 ford freestar hesitates around 45 - 50 mph. replaced spark plugs, wires, fuel filter and intake manifold gasket. especially worse when a/c is on.


Let me shoot u in the right direction I guarantee it's your coil pack a common problem on these it prob has a hairline crack in it wich in turn is getting your firing screwed up and it will affect the transmission into fluttering at those speeds try a new coil pack and u will see a huge difference in your van regards Chris

Flashing engine light on ford freestar,engine is running very rough at higher rpm


A flashing engine light usually indicates a misfire or several misfires. If the ignition components (coils, wires, distributors...) some how become exposed to moisture it is possible to get a rough running engine due to misfire(s) cause by arcking.

2004 f0rd freestar 3.9 engine it still runs slugish... i have changed 1. spark plugs 2. ignition wires 3. ignition coil 4. sprayed wire dry on harnesses and ignition wires and coil the van still...


O2 sensors get changed at 100,000 miles
Has that been done?

Has the TPS Sensor been tested with a scan tool
or oscilloscope?

Have you cleaned the MAF Sensor

All these items should be part of your preventative
maintenance,just as spark plugs

There is no need what so ever to change wires or coil,
unless they are tested & fail a test

How to change the coil in a 2004 ford freestar 3.9L


The ignition coil on a 2004 Ford Freestar is a bit of work to replace. Here are some steps:
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable;

2. Remove windshield wiper arms (you might need a cheap puller to get the arms off the spindles), marking the windshield with tape to help you reposition the wiper arms;
3. Remove the trim screws from the upper cowling and remove the cowling;
4. Remove a bunch of screws from the lower cowling, taking care not to remove the screws holding the wiper motor onto the lower cowling;
5. Remove the lower cowling with the wiper motor attached;
6. There is a large black piece on the passenger side of the car that covers up a big part of the engine. There are three screws that if you loosen you'll be able to remove this part;
7. Now you can get to the ignition coil, which is on the back of the engine; remove the wires (marking where the go);
8. There are only three screws that hold the coil on. Two on your right and one on the left (as you look into the engine compartment). Remove the three screws and the coil comes right out.
Good luck!

P0354 - Ignition Coil D Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction.

Description of DTC:
The ignition signal from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module(ECM) is sent to and amplified by the power transistor. The power transistor turns ON and OFF the ignition coil primary circuit. This ON/OFF operation induces the proper high voltage in the coil secondary circuit.

Symptoms:
- Lack/Loss of Power
- The engine may be harder to start
- Engine hesitation
- Check Engine Light On
- No spark

Possible Causes:
- Open or short in the ignition coil circuit
- Ignition coil circuit shorted to ground
- Ignition coil connector
- Damaged ignition coil
- Damaged PCM or ECM

Possible Solutions:
- If damage, repair ignition coil circuit
- Replace ignition coil
- Replace PCM or ECM



P0355 - Ignition Coil E Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction.

P0356 - Ignition Coil F Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction.

2004 Freestar-In Jan. it just started hesitating and it would not get over 30 mph. I had it towed to the dealer and they could not find problem. I picked it up and it ran good. I noticed the radio had lost...


Take van to reputable Ford dealer and have them hook it up to computer and check for any codes.
The vehicle computer might have to be reset for the egr system.What they did was disconnect your battery for the quicki reset for vehicle, thats why your radio had reset.
