There's a bad contact to a sensor. Have the error codes checked, hopefully they will point in the right direction, otherwise finding an intermittent problem in the wiring will be hell.

Throttle position sensor may be starting to go bad... it's possible that being held at the same position for long enough, vibration or other is causing it to lose connection and not give a signal, making the ECM cut fuel. When you move it, the signal comes back, and that's giving it back the power you expect.

Unfortunately, unless you have a tool to monitor TPS, you're just going to have to replace it and see if it fixes the problem.

At lower RPMs it is rough running with slight amount of smoke until warm and there is a loss of power at the bottom end of the gears. Once a certain rpm is reached (no tach) it snaps to life. New plug


What color is the smoke?
Black means running rich.
Gray or white is coolant
Blue is oil.
This shounds to me like a fuel system issue. Injectors might be bad

My change oil display on my 2005 ford explorer i changed the oil and it wont go out


Press your reset button on the on board diagnostics which is located on the dash, keep pressing the rest button until you see "oil life" once you come to the oil life, hold the reset button until it reads "Oil Life 100 percent" release the reset button, shut the vehicle off then re start it, that will turn off the message in the message center telling you to change your oil.

I can;t reset the change oil light on my dash of my 2007 lincoln town car I had the oil changed last week ?


This procedure work for one 2004... press mode button until oil life or change oil or change oil now is displayed press and hold mode button for 5 seconds until reset for new oil is displayed then hold reset for 2 seconds.

Additionally, I quite other comments about this subject....

Few issues have troubled technicians more than the infamous "Change oil soon light." We have even had quick lube shops send customers to me at the dealership to shut off this light.
Yes, the engineer that designed this system most certainly had flunked out of the "User Friendly" semester of college. The most common problem is between step 1 and 2 of the owner's manual. The natural tendency is that when we scroll through the menu to the "oil life XX%" mode, we lift our finger. This is where most go wrong. Once the "oil life XX%" comes up on the menu, do NOT lift from depressing the button- just hold for 5 seconds until the "Reset for new oil life" comes up. Again, do not lift your finger.

The parking assist is a different concern altogether. The parking assist light illuminated when it is deactivated- opposite of what seems logical. It was probably the same design engineer as the oil change system. If the system is disabled, (illuminated) it is intended to cycle back when the key is shut off.

Hope helps.

My car seems like it's not getting any gas! But when it loses power, it still stays started! When I shut it off and turn it back on, it seems fine until I go! It'll let me drive for about 5 minutes and...


It sounds like you have a fuel delivery issue. I would replace all of the fuel filters. Usually when you have a clogged fuel filter the car will idle fine and may drive ok at part throttle, but when you call for more power it will buck and stall out.

Reset change engine oil light 2009 ford escape xlt


This is how it works on my 2010 Escape. There are 3 buttons to the lower left of your steering column (Info, Setup, and Reset):
1) when it's displaying the "oil change required" message, hit the "reset" button to get rid of the message2) then hit the "Setup" button twice and you'll see the "oil life" screen, which is now at "0%". It tells you what to do next (i.e. "hold reset" until it say 100%).

How do i shut off my change oil light in my h3


I'm not 100% on this but I think it's like a lot of GM's; turn the key to the "on" position(not running), stomp the gas pedal to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds & the light should flash & go out.
