Question about Cars & Trucks
Ford futura Au auto , recently put in New battery,cleaned spark plugs, checked oils except transmission, why is car not accelerating properly up hills and revs change wrong along straight road?
You must reset the ignition timint to manufacturer specification. However will be a Great idea, that your RUN the scanner/computer for easy diagnostic. The electronic vehicle right now is very complicated. You must have something wrong: Ignition Coil or PCM faulty+spark wires+sparkplug+BCM+sensor,etc faulty. see the diagram attached.
God bless you

2.4 liter OHC coil housings have this as a common failure. Thery arc over internally to another cylinder and cause the misfire.

sounds like a clogged fuel filter. you need to have the engine pressure checked for leaks, you can rent the pressure checker at autozone, it connects to ur radiator and u pump pressure into the cooling system if u find water leaking around the head u know u have a blown head gasket. if ok then check the cylinder compression should beable to rent this also. it screws into the spark plug holes has a gauge on it. alternator problem w/ the light is probaly you need to tighten the belt.hope this helps!!!

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
