1996 acura 2.5 tl upon start up the engine goes to 2500-3000 rpms then the engine rpms start surging between 1500 to 2000 then after several minutes it goes to a normal idle and runs fine.

Hi, I had the same problem, and is now fixed. Replace your idle control valve, and the idle problem will go away, and your car will be PERFECT!

Erratic tick over for two minutes on cold start up then clears

diesel engine version ,to be honest i would need my dirty grubby hands under the bonnet and listen to it when cold to have the slightest idea as to what the problem could be.Owing to the complexity of modern engines unlike a good old bedford TK or a garner the faults as you appreciate can be quite expensive to correct a silly fault or just a quick bit or hose replacement will suffice ,try reading the OBDII to see if any sensors are throwing a code up if no codes then start from cold and use the moniter status and check the readings of the temperature sensors ? failing which run it into a bosch diesel garage who have all the fancy software to check it out because unlike a good old ford D series where i could adjust the injection pump with the engine running to regulate the fuel output and reset the injectors on a simple pump with a glass dome iam now consigned to classic car repair or becomeing a macdonalds sweeper uppere

2000 es300, sometimes surges - last time it seem to lose power could only drive about 20 miles per hour

Check for failed EGR Valve or system component

If the valve has a vacuum hose going to it ,disconnect,
plug hose & test drive to evaluate bad valve & high vacuum
signal as you suggested

Fail safe engine mode mean in a 2000 jaguar s type?

Hi Walter, the fail safe mode is for getting you home when something goes wrong and you need to move the vehicle a short distance. If it is engaged you should take the vehicle for a scan and find out what is wrong. Regards John

2003 Lincoln LS V8, Won't turn over after errors

Forget the four coils. That is a common problem,but I would question 4 failing.
The ABS ,Parking Brake,Speedo Etc,where nothing to worry about,you were loosing power, when it went to fail safe,so they came up.

ETC -is Electronic Throttle Control, your problem? Maybe
You will need to have a scanner put on it's,daignostic connector under the dash,to check for codes. Them only a trained technician can follow a chart or test proceedure to properly repair.
I have a 2004 LS,one of Ford most high tech and complicated vehicles.
Conclusion: only a professional can repair you car.
I would start with a local shop. If money you have money to throw away,go to a dealer.
Most likely have to wave to it on a flat bed carrier. Don't flat tow it.

Diesl engine 7.3 ford, stopped running suddenly. Turned ignition off and attempted to restart. Glow plug indicator light did not turn on and the fuse for the glow plugs was blown. Replaced fuse and blew...

May have more than 1 problem. As far as the fuse goes, may have a shorted glwplug relay or bad wiring harness at the valve cover.This is a complex system, you can though a bunch of money away on guesses. Best to have vehicle taken to qualified Ford diesel mechanic, he has the equipment to chek the system, rather that throw parts. Could get real expensive with no results. Good luck

Sounds like an engine rebuild is required. The head may be warped and the knocking sound may be a cam.
