Check all your spark plug cables, if moisture gets in to the boots it can cause a short near any metal surface,replace all your fuel filters and run some lucas oil fuel injector cleaner and stp octane booster.those worked on my 89.and the carb or throttle body might need to be cleaned with some spray cleaner,there are 2 different 1's /1 for carbs and 1 for throttle bodies.

Hi, I suggest you take the vehicle to a Ford agent, car needs diagnostic tuning to check errors and cancel them. This may be your safest choice in terms of protection of the vehicle operation.

1988 Town Car Signature won't start mornings -- fine otherwise


When you first start the vehicle in the morning, try turning the key to ON for ten seconds before starting the vehicle. If your engine then starts immediately, replace the fuel pressure regulator. If it does not solve the problem, perform a major tune-up.
If your CHECK ENGINE light is illuminated, check ODB codes to determine fault.
The 5.0L engine in the 1988 Town Car is one of the most reliable engines ever built by Ford, mostly because it is adept at masking problems for a long time before a failure happens. You will find that most failures you encounter will either be fuel-related (usually a clogged fuel filter) or burned spark plug wires.

2004 grand cherokee 4.0l one day it will run fine the next day it runs rough rich and when i step on the gas the engine cuts out and spits and sputters


When the "spits and sputters" happen are you in low rpm? Can you "by-pass" the sputtering by accelerating? Has your gas mileage suffered?

Running fine then at hiway speed stalls down shift and usualy fixes prob. for a while


Check your transmission fluid level. The fluid could be low. This will cause the car to slow down especially going up hills.

2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport I-6. Runs rough at idle sometimes and will go away if you bring rpms up for a little while and then release throttle. Usually runs rough after it has been driven and restarted.


A VERY Recent Tune Up MUST Be Insured to Properly Diagnose this Discription, If the Vehicle Has Not Had A Recent Tune up That CAN be the Cause of Your Symptoms, If it HAS been Tuned up, then With these Symptome the Check Engine Light Should Illuminate, and If the Light is On It Must Be Checked For Codes and Fallowed up From there. If No CEL Try Changinging Fuel Filter, As This Will Cause Poor Performance Without Turning ON the CEL.
