You need fuel, air and spark at right time and place.
check all that. check a plug by crancking if sparking. check another one.
if ok go to fuel system.
Best is to have a vacuum gauge hooked up. Nobody uses that old trick. You can us that gauge for inlet vacuum or for fuel punp inspection.

Put you attention to fuel safety cut off valcve on proper functioning.
Check critical wire harness connections for poper contact and voltage level.

2000 ford focus wagon se dies after high idle... Change coil pack.plugs. wires...still misfired and dies as soon as I let go of gas....what could this be?


Timing, engine control module, throttle position sensor, air flow meter. Run a diagnostic test to see what codes it shows so you can determine the exact cause.

When i come to a stop the car wants to die unless u keep ur foot on the gas


Hi Wendi:
If the engine runs fine except when you don't have your foot on the gas, maybe the idle stop needs to be adjusted. With the engine off, have someone step on the gas pedal while you look at the linkage at the carb. There should be a plate with a screw in it that keeps the butterfly valve from closing completely. This can be adjusted with the engine running. (SAFETY FIRST - MOVING PARTS CAN BITE)
If the engine will only run at not nice too high RPM, chances are that the idle jet in the carb is plugged, and a carb cleaning and possibly overhaul may be needed.

Check for a good spark at the plugs ,if ok check fuel pressure and fuel flow. fuel pressure should be around 300 kpa, Flow around 500 ml, in 30 seconds.

As i put my foot on the acc, in all 5 gears, sometimes it judgers like a kangaroo, like its running out of gas


OK number of possibilities here- Im gonna give you the most common ones-

a dirty fuel filter can cause vehicle sputter by blocking the flow of gas from the pump to the engine

a dirty air filter restricts air flow causeing the MAF (mass airflow censor) to report abnormal readings to the ecm (computer) causing the ecm to adjust fuel mix improperly resulting in stutter

bad plugs, wires, or coil - if the engine cant achieve proper spark it will hesitate.

Sounds like you need a tune up- Id check your fuel filter first and go from there, buy plugs before you buy wires, and wires before you buy coils-

Turns over but wont start


OK three essentials for a running motor......

1. Fuel - Check to ensure you have gas up to the engine. Check fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel injectors.
2. Spark - Make sure your system has electrical current to fire the plugs. Check your wires to the coil(s) the plug wires, cap & rotor and spark plugs and gaps.
3. Air - Check to make sure any air flow sensors are connected, most cars wont run with the MAF (Mass air flow) sensor disabled. Check your air filter to make sure its not dirty. if it is it can restrict air flow and cause your motor to flood its self out instead of allowing the gas to ignite, hope you found my answer helpful!

ford had 3.8 engines one with distributor cap .and one with distributorless.so if you got distributor engine change distributor cap and rotor spark plugs and wires.also coil.if you got distributorless change plugs and wires .replace coil packs if they have alot of miles on them.replace fuel and air filter.also run good gas.like exxon -shell -marathon - texoco- good gas make car run better.
