Have the vehicle scanned for error codes at autozone, its free. Post codes for more help....These engines have issues with the COPs (ignition coils-over-plugs) failing prior to 80k miles. When they fail typical problems are: Sputtering under load/acceleration, rough idle, random misfires, random stalling, light or heavy jerking under load (usually at 15-35mph and 45-65mph)..hopefully this helps!!

Sputtering engine while in passing gear


At 150000 miles the plugs start to fail under hard acceleration the higher compression blows out the spark before it ignites the fuel. Random cylinder misfire causes the check engine light to come on. change the plugs!

2005 ranger rough idle, flashing engine light & strong exhaust


first of all a flashing check engine light indicates STOP as soon as possible SAFELY.. as for if you continue to drive damage to catalytic converter may occur. Have you had codes pulled yet ? start there the codes wont tell you wrong exactly but will give you problem area to start checking out. check for data link connection. make sure it can communicate with scan tool. commonly on fords is the ecm fuse is in same power supply line as cigarette lighter.( you figure Huh.) if fuse is blown it affects ecm power supply and causes drivability issues. and fuse is labled cigarette lighter fuse and Not ECM power supply. hope this helps if not pull codes and repost more info i get the more i can help . good luck

2004 Ford Focus LX, was sputtering while driving


A flashing light is BAD. Its damaging the cat converter. I would check or replace the spark plug wires ( if all OK, then) replace the coil pack. I would not replace anything unless they test bad. but these car are known for bad coil packs.

Truck sputters and dies when you put it in drive or reverse.


Most Likely a vacume leak. Check the engine and surrounding engine bay for a loose hose. I would check the mass air sensor, make sure it is free of debries.
