I bet your spark plug wires are bad. Arching is occuring (when the spark doesnt get to the plug) Probably because of old cracked wires

I would have the timing checked. Sometimes when a car jumps time, it is only out far enough to cause a slow take off and less power going up a hill, but still seems to start and run fine otherwise.

Why does it lose power going up hill and fine on level ground


if the transmission dont slip that means the engine lacks power.
(torque)
this can be from forgetting to do tune ups>? every 60k miles. or per the operators guide, some cars need spark plugs every 30k did you RTM read the manual yet>? please do.
in order of likely (not physics)
bad spark (misfire) induced low power.
bad fueling lean
bad fueling too rich. (more misfire spark plugs turn black (tips)
bad engine. (compression loss)
the rare CAT melted, (inside) and getter worse.

My car is cutting off every time im going under 1000rpm. mercury sable 2002. codes were p0301 p0302 and p0316 until i changed crank sensor and spark plugs now it says p0316 p0305 p0306.. whats going on?...


Hi

P0305 is misfire in cylinder #5.
P0306 is misfire in cylinder#6.
P0316 is misfire on start up.
Have the plugs on those 2 cylinders, and the 2 fuel injectors checked, also check for spark from the coil on those 2 plug wires.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I have a misfire in 1 cylinder I had just bought spark plugs and wires I went back and reguaged them all and it still has a misfire what else could it be I have a 2001 Mercury sable.


It could be a coil pack. Follow the wire from the spark plug back to the coil pack. each one should run two cylinders. Switch the coil pack with a different one and see if a different cylinder misfires. They are easy to change, just 2 7mm screws hold each one on.

yes about the upper intake and the only way i know how to check the coils is with a engine anilyser or if the check engine light comes on then you can have the codes pulled and that will tell you which cylender is missfiring this engine has a indevidual coil for each spark plug so thares 6 of them and thay slide right down over the sparkplugs
