It is designed to cut out around 3000rpm in park, so you don't over rev it.

00linc LS v8 has a little missing at times . not noticeable on overnight start up ,after driving for a while you can feel it when accelerating at times then smooth out an run like ck eng lite

If the is misfiring then the check engine light will blink and a code will be set for the fault, so if you have no light you do not have a misfire it has to be something else going on, have you had the fault codes read yet? Do that, any Autozone will read them for free, just ask for a OBD2 fault code test.

I have a 2001 Plymouth neon. In park or neutral it misses really bad. In drive or reverse it will get much better. But during accelerating it is gone until I let off. What would cause this?

Thats very unusual.
Is the check engine light on, and have you checked the engine computer for trouble codes ?
Are any of the motor mounts broken ?

Starts missing /large dead stop when accelerating

The missing while accelerating is likely due to ignition coils and/or spark plugs going bad. The missing while in park is a normal thing. The car has a rev limiter that will not allow the engine to rev to higher than 3000 RPM while in park.

Rough idle, acceleration and check engine light went from being on to flashing on and off

Use a ODB-2 meter to read the problem code. That will give you a clue on what to look for next.

Slight miss accelerating

place a inductive timing light on your spark plug wires one at a time;\while the car is in neutral and, running accelerate the engine
when a miss-fire occurs on the bad spark plug wire you will see a missed flash from the timing light's bulb

99 lincoln towncar missing at idle, when accelerating it's more like a stumble, like running over rumble strips along the road side but not constant, check engine light is on, then will start flashing....

A driver in the PCM or ECM may have fried and can not fire a coil or injector correctly . The technician needs to figure why the scan tool can not retrieve codes .

Check engine light is on. Car has what seems to be a low idle under 1000rpm and if I floor it only goes up to 3000rpm in neutral. When I am driving along it seems to sputter as I accelerate and I can hear...

I would give you some credit for knowing the routine
when a check light comes on any vehicle,since they have
been on vehicles for 30 years. YOU GIVE US THE CODE

The idle should be around 700 rpm approx,so what is the
issue there?
The 3000 rpm is all it will go in neutral, so you don't damage
the engine,the manufacture knew you would try that!

The LS has about 2 ignition coil failures a year
All Fords loose EGR Valves early in their life
O2 Sensors get replaced at 100,000 miles
(front 2 only)

I could keep going

You just need to start working on the vehicle
instead of driving it, until it acts up

My 1998 lincoln navigator starts but shuts off emmediately, will only stay on if accelerating.

Most likely the throttle position sensor is bad. If it is idling weird and misfiring and barely running while accelerating, then the coil packs may be bad and you should check each cylinder for spark. Let me know if you have any more questions. Do check for vacuum leaks as well. Is your check engine light on? If so, you should have your engine codes read to pinpoint exact problem
