Question about 1996 Mercury Mystique
When driving the car, it will lose power and start loosing speed quick. The car remains on and unresponsive to the gas until it is floored. Up to the point of the pedal being floored the RPM's and speed do not change whatsoever. Once it is floored, it gets a huge leap in RPM'S and surges forward with alot of power and that is the only way to increase speed when this loss of power occurs.
Stopping the car, turning it off and then on corrects the problem.
It has never done it twice in one trip, or one time after another.
It is completely random, has happened at different speeds while cruising.
Happens about once a week, or every two weeks.
I have the same problem! Car is at ford dealership now. I'm figuring a bad fuel filter, clogged catalytic converter, heck, it could even be that the spark plugs need changing. Hoping for something minor! Will write what my problem is when I find out and you can take it from there
