Question about 1994 Ford Crown Victoria
1994 Crown Victoria LX started stuttering when accelerating,now the check engine light is on and it'll barely run.Any ideas where to start? When the problem started it seemed to run better when cold then when it warmed up it would hesitate when accelerating. The problem started about 6 months ago and got progressively worse until the check engine light came on. I don't have a code reader just basic tools and a very tight budget. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
It probably stutters more when going up steeper inclines also, if I'm correct. There are a couple of solutions that worked for me. The most simple one was replacing the serpentine belt, after realizing that it was 160K overdue to be replaced. That made a huge difference on that milage, and the acceleration in addition to mostly cutting out the engine stutter. The second thing was a vacuum leak. You can find diagrams of the vacuum hose layout online, then follow the lines with windex while the car is running, and look for bubbles, just as you would for a leak in a tire.as to the light, i agree with him^ Hope this helps some.

They sell very unexpensive code readers at autoparts not the digital but the one with a little bliking light you might be hable to pull codes with it

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
