Blue smoke after accelerating in my 1989 Taurus sho

Blue smoke is indicative that you are burning oil. Could be many things.

Check cylinder compression to ascertain if you have broken rings or a worn bore.

Check the valve guides and seals.

Check the cylinder head gasket.

All in all an expensive exercise. Time for the breakers yard and a new vehicle.

2001 Ford F650 with 7.2 Cat deisel acceleration problem

Check your TPS Throttle positioning sensor. Sounds like it has a dead spot in it or it is failing. May also be a wiring harness issue or loose connection at TPS too! If its intermittent then it will soon go out completely. It should be located on your fuel pedal. Remove it and check it with an ohm meter. Check resistance all the way thru from 0-100 percent. When it is not working it should do nothing and show no resistance. When it is working the resistance value will increase and or decrease as you turn the sensor.

Air conditioning blows out defrost when accelerator is depressed

You need to open the vent, under the dash. Check the cable and moving action assembly. Make sure that it is all moving correctly. Some of the newer hvac systems in cars work off of vacume but most work with cables. Not big long cables, just small lever cables. also check your seals and make sure none of them are broken. I often find this is a bigger probel, the seal is cracked or broken or just came off and needs to be re glued in place. Don't be afraid to take the vent tubes apart as long as you can remember where they go.

A/C leaks

You'll have to replace the seals. The seals were meant for the R-12 freon.
If I remember right, the R-134A freon works under higher pressure also. Therefore, that won't help the hoses and seals with R-12 grade hold in the refridgerant.
