2001 Mercury Sable - already asked but this is in better detail???

Not plugs. Go to AutoZone, Advance, or Oreilys autoparts for a FREE scan. Bring pen and paper and write down trouble Code that their scanner shows. Clerk should be able to tell you, but you want the Code so your can price repair.
Once you get Codes you can call and price work. A few can be done without much effort. Unfortunately the ABS may be a victim of heavy braking. The ABS can be checked with a better scanner(Not all are equal).
Try tightening the gascap, although each time you added fuel additives you did that, know that one Code may be related to a loose cap.
Think back about your gas purchase. The cheapest is E85. If you put this in your car, it is not made for it. If this is what happened, then it will give a Mechanic a better idea of everything broken.

Is there something that could cause a Coil to keep going out on a 2002 Toyota Echo?

The compression is not the problem, it's possible that you just got a defective coil or there may be an intermittent problem with the #4 fuel injector, the P0171 will come back when there is a misfire once the misfire is fixed the P0171 will stay gone, a fuel injector seems logical since if it's sticking it will drive the system lean which is what the 171 code is for.

Stalls frequently

Seems like a fuel supply problem... additional fuel is added through the injectors when the engine is cold (running slightly rich) and then when it comes up to temperature or pre-set time period through the Electronic Control Unit (brain), the engine dies. Each time you shut off the car and restart it, the injectors receive extra fuel. My guess is partially clogged fuel injectors. Take the car to a Bosch Service Center and have them cleaned... its far cheaper than buying new. Change the fuel filter too! Hopefully, the fuel injection system pump is not bad (not the same as the fuel pump) as these are expensive. Get a rebuilt one, if you need a new one. Recommend Denso Iridium spark plugs to get a cleaner burn, better gas mileage, and longer service life.

What makes a taurus se engine shake at ideal but when speed up smoods out

Generally, this is caused by either a vacuum leak somewhere on the top of the engine or dirty fuel injectors. Listen carefully for a vacuum leak [sucking air sound] at or near the top of the engine. Another way to locate a vacuum leak is to spray carburetor cleaner [aerosol can] at small areas, where there are vacuum hoses or intake gaskets. When you find the area of the leak, the carb cleaner will get sucked into the leak. This will generally cause the engine to run better.
Try adding fuel injection cleaner to the gasoline tank. I recommend the Chevron Techron brand of fuel injection cleaner. Advance Auto and Costco carry this brand.

My 1991 olds mobile cutlass calais wont start,after I added fuel injector cleaner because,the car was having hesistating problems below 25 miles an hour and it might of been a spark plug problem or fuel...

When you chaged the air filter & sprayed Gumout carb cleaner, you got rid of a little gunk in the
air intake, but when you added the fuel injector cleaner (its the same stuff as carburator cleaner) to the fuel tank, you "cleaned out" ALL the ****/gunk/buildup/dirt in the fuel system which has built up since 1991 and sent it straight to the fuel filter, which is now clogged. The reason that the car tries to start, but fails, is that it'll successfully burn up any fuel that gets past the clogged fuel filter, but the engine consumes that small amount of gasoline quickly, then dies.
Your solution: change the fuel filter.
The fuel filter is located:
Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line

Have someone retime the engine. In a diesel it means to time the injection pump. You may have wear in the timing chain or gears. But the fuel ratio can be made rich or lean by when the fuel hits the cylinder.

Try that first as it is cheaper. You can have worn injectors and adding a cleaner will make the fuel run through faster. Possibly spray a little better, but it will not make the fuel nozzles any tighter.

Fuel injection flush - is it necessary?

no its a joke to buy something like that in a can to put in your tank,think about it,raw gas is the best cleaner for grease,oil ,varnish,
But what gas or any injector cannot dissolve is rust partials from metal fuel tanks.And most of them are plastic now.

1991 corvette boggs down when normal operating temp is reached.No codes and have replaced the computer

It sounds to me as though you have a clogged or malfunctioning fuel pump. Depending on the engine in your car, and whether or not the engine has a carb or fuel injection system.

In most of the early 90's corvette's, there should still be a fuel filter on the fuel injection throttle body (it looks like a carb), and a fuel filter under the car on the fuel lines. I believe you'll want to check the passenger side, but follow the fuel lines to find the filter. You might only have one under the car, so don't be alarmed if you don't find a small one on the throttle body.

Try changing your fuel filters first, as this is an inexpensive way to make sure your vette is in optimum condition before you do anything else.

If fuel filter replacement doesn't work, you will want to have your fuel pump tested. The only way to DIY, is to remove the fuel pump from the lower drivers side of the engine and to blow in the "in" side with a little water and see if it puts out the fluid. Even at that it could still be bad, so if you pull the pump, plan on replacing it.

The only other realistic option is that your fuel injectors are dirty or the gaskets are bad and it is time for an injector overhaul. This is not to hard to DIY, but does take patience and attention. You can also try running some fuel injection cleaner through your engine before trying anything else to see if it helps.

Some unlikely options are that your smog pump is clogged, your catalytic converter might be bad, you EGR valve or Purge Valve is clogged, your timing is off and you need to check the spark system, or that you could have low compression.
