    Angelo the weather has not aloud me to check and see if that is the problem. The forecast is for better weather this week, but if this does not solve the problem what other things do you suggest I should look since I will be working on it? And I would like to check as much as I can before the weather changes.

Hi. Try to check the fuel filter. Fuel filtier might be clogged up and needs to be replaced.

    The next part that you should check is the fuel pump. Since you only experience this problem when you accelerate the car.

Sounds like a ground wire problem. Does it act up in the rain or after a wash? That could indicate the fuse block under the hood my be geting moisture. But definitely check the main ground, fuse Block ground, and headlights ground. Check headlights plugs n turn signal plugs n sockets. Also, start by changing the bulbs. Both of them. There's two filaments in each bulb, one for marker lights and one for blinking

is the car missing when driving? 2000 and on has coil over plug's there are no wires. Is the check engine light on? if so go to an Auto Zone parts store or one that will scan the car computer for free and get the codes out to pin point the problem. Sounds like the cars miss firing. it could be more than one coil and or plug going bad. Did you replace any coil packs? Bad coil packs are 90% of all miss fires on todays cars and trucks.

Have a 2003 taurus with 3.o liter v6. At around 4200 rpm the engine starts to miss like it is a rev limiter. Am I right or is this another problem. Is smooth all the way to 4200 and then misses  ...

Yes it will act like it has a miss if the car is in park and you rev the car up, but if you are going down the road and hit 4200 rpm's it should not. Try checking the computer and see if it has any codes pending or hard codes in it.

Change spark plugs and now car wont start.....1994 ford tarus

Do you have the "firing order" correct? In other words, is each spark plug wire going to the same cylinder it was on before you changed the plugs? If you have done nothing else but changed the plugs then this is the most likely problem.
If when you try to start the car it backfires through the exhaust or backfires through the intake. Then this " IS" the problem. Good luck.
