Question about Cars & Trucks
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

Is the check engine light on? If so check what codes are stored. It sounds like the m a p sensor.
Good luck dont forget to rate.

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.

sorry but you have tried everything i would have done except that i would have checked the engine breather pipes for deterioation like perished or soft and collapsing .you would be surprised how often this is the main cause of this sort of problem
