Yes, can be either of the 2 but can also be 10 other things too. CPS, timing, air filter, spark plugs, vacuum, fuel injrctors etc.. I could go on and on. You need to eliminate some of these things to start. Make sure your maint. is done first

Hey Bill, To answer your question about injectors, without a scanner capable of performing a injector balance test its very difficult to narrow down a clogging injector, you could however get a injection cleaning done at the shop of your choice, or even try a fuel additive to pour into fuel tank, however based upon the work you already have done, and the drive-ability your experiencing I would say you have a bad upstream O2 sensor. Bank 2 should be passenger side next to exhaust manifold. If you have access to a scanner you could check the O2 switching, however, I think that's your problem. Fuel pressure would cause both banks lean, vac leaks would really affect idle, and a ignition problem would usually set a misfire code. One thing you could try however which i have had success with is cleaning your mass air flow sensor, auto part store stock it, very easy to perform, i have had luck with it in the past, if dirty it can throw fuel trims out of spec. If you need any thing else let me know, and make sure you let engine cool for a period of time before touching any exhaust areas.

Sounds like you might have a bad coolant tempurature sensor. Also, I would check to see if the fuel filter has been replaced. Is the check engine light is on?

Hello. I can assist you. Generally when a scan is done, the technician will clear out all of the codes and hope that the problem self corrects. I am glad you passed the state emissions test. Now let's get to the bottom of the hesitation. Generally all lincoln and ford cars that hesitate like yours have a problem with the "mass airflow sensor". Most likely you will need to replace it.
The Air Flow Sensor or Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) is one of the components of an electronic fuel injection system and is found in many of modern vehicles. The Mass Air Flow sensor is usually installed inside the intake air duct between the air filter and the engine. The Mass Air Flow sensor is used to measure the amount of air entering the engine. This measurement is used by the engine computer or ECM to calculate proper amount of fuel injected into the cylinders in order to provide optimum combustion and low emissions.
Problems with Mass Air Flow sensors are common. Bad or contaminated Mass Air Flow sensor can possibly cause a wide range of various vehicle driveability problems such as stalling, especially when the engine is cold, misfiring, poor acceleration, etc.
In addition, a problem with the Mass Air Flow sensor often causes the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light in the vehicle instrument panel to illuminate.
The "check engine" or "service engine soon" light comes on when the engine computer detects some fault in one of the components of the emission control system.

Hesitates on acceleration

Does the car always hesitate during acceleration? If it ALWAYS struggles when it starts or ALWAYS hesitates on acceleration then I would say the issue is fuel delivery. If the problems are more intermittent and come-and-go then it could be an electrical issue.

I would start by changing the fuel filter. Changing plugs, wires, cap, and rotor are all good things to do as your budget will allow. I doubt you will have to change your injectors.

If you end up replacing any rubber fuel line, be sure to use the high-pressure stuff made for use on fuel injected cars.

I hope this helps! -Nick

It is located on the left frame rail in front of left rear tire.It has a plastic clip in each fuel line that will be white in color.Remove the clip then disconnect fuel line.Make sure to replace the clips,DO NOT reuse the old ones. Install the new clips into the connector then snap the connectors on to the filter.
