The car had set up for about a year and a half. After installing a new full exhaust( headers to rear tips) I took it out for a spin. Everything seemed fine exept under hard acceleration so I knew the problem was in the fuel or the firing. I got lucky when I decided to try a new fuel pump. When we lowered the tank we found it to be corroded with rust along with the pump itself. So after a new tank and pump all is well( For now). Thanks for replying so soon.

2004 Pacifica will not go past 2500 rpm. If you spray either while keeping throttle at 2500 the engine dies instead of revving up. ????

Have a diagnostics run on the car. That will yell you which sensor or other parts are misbehaving.

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur

Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

2003 mustang gt will skip when it hits about 1,500 rpm but after that it is fine but you can still feel a little skip in it.

I have a similar symptom. No engine light lite. It can be felt as I accelerate moderately from a standing stop. Then as my engine begins a climb in rpm in seems to hesitate for a brief moment and then continue to increase rpm. Not sure what this is.

Is this the symptom you were identifying?
