    my 2001 Ford Crown Victoria has been in the shop since this past Friday (five days now) and they cannot seem to find the problem. Diagnostic machine says "fuel injectors are not pulsing". Before I took it in, it was missing as if the spark plugs might need changing, losing power when car moving slow or at a stop, but on a couple of occasions there was a surge in power while at a stop. Can anyone help???

My crown vic was repaired by the dealership, and they replaced the #8 coil and spark plug; also, the DPFE sensor and the crankshaft sensor were replaced. no problems since then!

I have a 2003 with the same problem. I thought it was the alternator but after i swapped it out the problem continued. Any other ideas?

If you are saying everything is ok when the engine first starts but number one starts to miss when at operating temp. Sounds like the number one coil has developed a internal crack that opens up when hot or at operating temp..causing a miss.change it.but before changing the coil check the spark plug wire it may be breaking down when hot..good luck

Already changed coil, plugs,plug wires,distributor cap and roto, still skips when really hot outside

Check the following:
Cooling system working properly including fans.
Under hood fuel lines touching coolant or heater hoses.
Fuel lines under vehicle close to or not shielded from exhaust pipe, converter, muffler.
Fuel filter changed recently.
Fuel pump pressure.
Cheap gas.

I assume you are running the A/C. Which makes underhood temps higher. So what are your volts at the battery with everything running when this "skipping" occurs. Could be the alternator volts and/or amp output has decreased with age. This would cause the fuel pump to run a bit slower, reducing fuel pressure. Which could lead to fuel boiling somewhere in high heat areas. Do you have any other electrical loads like large stereo amps, fog/driving lights etc.

1993 Buick LeSabre surges and almost dies intermittently

Check fuel rail pressure.

Add fuel to beyond 1/2 tank.

A weak fuel pump do not like to ran low on gas.

When was the last gas filter and fuel pump change?

90-120,000 miles is the typical change out.

Fuel pump like to quit on a HOT day.

Test the pressure and see is it within specification.

Good luck

Truck cuts off while driving down the road.

Replace the TFI module. Ford back in 1986 thur 1993 had problems like the one you wrote about. TFI module gets hot and shuts car or truck off then when it cools sometmies starts and sometimes not.

Do a steam clean or wipe down on the engine block.

Locate ALL the freeze plugs location.

Monitor for slow coolant drip / steam / water mark on each freeze plugs.

Replace them ASAP.

Do a hydrocarbon HC dye test to rule out crack head and other minor leak(s)

Car problems.

Ok first you must stop allowing the fuel to get low keeit at least 1/2 tank at all times because the fuel covering the fuel pump in the tank cools it and makes it last longer remember this: its much easier to fill up the top half of the fas tank than the bottom half and cheaper too here in Wa state gas is still 4$ for reg and $4.80 for premium anyway
The fast that it starts right back up makes this problem much more broad as to what it can be. Because if it were a electronic module it would have to cool a bit before it would start. Does it Idle excessivly low now as compared to the way it used to? Theck for vacuum hoses adn caps (small plugs on the drivers side rear of the top of the engine make sure none are missing or cracked to a point where there is a hole.
Also check the air intake hose for any cracks or holes rake it off and clex it and inspect closly make sure its on completely and the clamps are tight
Does this problem happen if the fuel is half or more full if tou don't know fill it up and see and keep it more than half all the time
