Ford taurus hesitates loss off power sputters

Ford Taurus looses power when going up hill and hesitates when I accelerate in anny gear even neutral one day but runs fine the next, when it does this as I push the pedal in neutral the exhaust goes quiet and sounds justas if I shut off the engine at high rpm and it decreases till it goes to rest but instead when applying throttle the opposite happens. when the exhaust goes quiet you instantly loose most of the engine power but the rpm slowly creeps upward 1k rpm every 1.5 seconds in neutral at 10~75 throttle but at 100% throttle it all the sudden comes back to life but sputters some , like the exhaust valves are controlled and not opening all the way, fuel pump ecu, or Duratek system? idk

SOURCE: 2001 focus. Replaced plugs, wires and coil pack.

Have you replaced the timing belt? if not i would highly recommend doing so. these cars need to have the timing belt replaced before it breaks otherwise it can and will cause major engine damage.

My 2007 ford taurus 3.0 sel has 104000 miles and the check engine light came on 6 months ago I refuse to drive the highway because my car is slow to accelerate and it misfires and hesitates going up steep...


You should get the check engine light read to see what the code(s) is. This will help with diagnosing what is going on with your taurus.
It may just need a simply tune-up since it has over 100k. The coil pack may need to be replaced, could be a bad cam position sensor, a vacuum leak...
Most parts stores, like Advance Auto Parts, will check the code for free

Ford taurus 1998 loss of power engine hot


Check the fuel filter. if it is resricted it will cause the engine to not be able to accelerate due to lack of fuel. If the filter is good check the cat converter for resrition

NO accelleration on hills


disconnect your air mass sensor then drive to see if the problem went away. this sensor tells the computer when the air filter is bad. a bad air mass sensor will change the computer setting and make your car loose power.

Problem with automatic transmission


have a transmission tuneup performed which may solve the problem. also have them check for metal shavings in the pan. take filter off and replace filter which could solve your problem. also may need a shift kit on the valve body.

Check engine light is frequently a loose fuel cap, but the other problem could be a bad fuel pump, or a clogged fuel filter. Try the fuel filter first - its the cheapest.
