These are prone to cylinder head failure.
Get it compression tested before you do anything else.
I'm guessing it's starting to use more water too?

SOURCE: low power can't accelerate ch engine light jus came on hour ago

Hello;
You need to have the codes pulled and diagnoised. It could be the cam sensor, fuel pump, fuel filter, or the catalytic convertor as well as a combination. Have you cleaned your Mass air sensor?
Hope this helps;

SOURCE: misses during acceleration , rough

Go get the codes ran at auto zone or advance auto parts they will do it for free. If the codes come up as a cylinder miss-fire then it is most likely a coil (being a ford). Write down which cylinder it is. I wouldn't replace any of the spark plugs , useless you have more than 100,000 miles. If you have to replace the spark plugs use BOSH double plautim or better. The cylinder placing is ( as your are looking at the front of the truck) passenger side front to back 1-2-3-4 driving side front to back 5-6-7-8. If you never seen a coil buy one so you know what you are looking for. The coil is held in by a 7mm bolt. Take the bolt out and replace the coil. Problem Solved. Estimated time 20 Mins with 60 dollars per coil.

SOURCE: 2000 pont. grand am dies at stops and low idle

I just got done with this same problem. Check a small looped vacuum hose just behind the mass air flow sensor which is attached to the air filter housing. the hose will be toward the plenom on the right side next to a blue connector. They have a tendency of getting soft.

It sounds as if you have a brake or c.v. joint problem. If you haven't checked your brakes check them first (cheapest to repair). Ifbrakes are fine c.v. joints are most likely the problem. When checking brakes if doing yourself check inner and outer pads as well as rotors for scoring. Good Luck.

My dodge grand caravan today threw a 700 engine code transmission module, car wont go over 25 and only has powered acceleration for first 5 seconds car is on.


700 is a generic transmission code. It went to limp mode, that's why it drives like it does. Have the codes read with a newer /better code reader or a scanner. Find out what other codes are in there.

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

Hesitation when accelerating, then the car loses power while driving then i have trouble starting the car after losing power.


you may need to get your injectors cleaned the fuel filter being changed is good the coil is another good one or your fuel pump could be weak and isnt giving the proper psi of fuel to the injectors so id say clean the injectors first if thats not it the fuel pump

I have problems with my 98 chevy k1500 pickup on the highway. Once i hit about 65 mph it wont accelerate and it backfires. also, after i come to a stop and try to accelerate up to highway speeds again,...


If it is running bad enough to be backfiring, the Check Engine light should be on. I would start with scanning the engine computer for fault codes.
