You dont say how old or the mileage on your car so its hard to say for sure but, 2 things come to mind.
1) fuel filter and/or fuel pump pressure.
2) clogged catalitic converter. Check to feel the exhaust pipe as someone else pushes down on the gas petal. You should feel increased pressure comeing out as they push farther down on the petal. This is something you can check. I hope this helps you.

1999 Lincoln Continental 4.6 32v engine...idles smooth in park & in gear. In park I get a engine miss when revved to 4000rpm. Also seem/feels like I have a miss at lower engine speed when being driven....


hello, i first must ask why that engine would EVER be reved to 4000 RPM? it is likely you are up against the rev-limiter and your ignition is made not to over rev. be very careful....4000 RPM on that engine could/will severly damage your tourque convertor........very expensive it is common for the EGR passages on that model to plug up with carbon, remove valve, clean ports, and retest for low speed miss/hesitation, good luck....marty

My 2000 Ford Taurus at about 4000 rpm does not go further with rpm even when accelerator is press more. It gives off a pulsating choking sound at above mentioned rpm. At below 4000 rpm the engine runs...


To do this in park or neutral is normal. To do it while driving is not.
There are so many things that could cause this but if you have no check engine light and it runs normally up until then I would suspect you have an exhaust restriction. This can be checked fairly easy on this vehicle, it has a DPFE sensor that mounts near the top back side of the motor.It will either be black or silver,will have a 3 wire connector to it and 2 hoses going down the back of the motor to the exhaust. You can disconnect one of these hoses and install a vacuum/pressure guage and measure exhaust back pressure. It should be 1 psi or less at idle and when you go to wide open throttle should not exceed 3 to 4 psi. If it does something in exhaust,most likely one of the catalytic convertors is stopped up.

4000 rpm at 70 miles per hour


You should have another gear "5th" at 70mph your tacho should read about 2500 rpm.
Make sure you don't need to depress something or push the gear stick against a spring to select 5th.
Is there a gear layout on top of the gearstick knob, do you have 5th gear on there?
The highest gear ratio is a little over 1 to 1 so at 70 mph you would expect 3500 rpm, but, it is a little over 1 to 1 so it will be closer to 2500rpm.
