97 ford 4.0 idles smooth, accelerate there is a point where motor sputters if i back off and then push harder it smooths out.engine light on code says #3 sparkplug but seems to be firing fine at idle


There's no code that says, "#3 spark plug" but there is a code P0303 which indicates a misfire has been detected on cylinder #3. That misfire could be due to a spark plug, but it could also be a bad spark plug wire or CoP, a bad fuel injector, bad injector wiring, burnt valve, etc. Changing the spark plugs and wires would likely be the easiest and one of least expensive places to start, especially if the truck is due for a tune up anyway, but if that doesn't fix it, consider the fuel injector next. Just because it idles fine does not mean that the spark is strong at higher engine speeds.

You might also want to clean your MAF sensor and check the linearity of your throttle position sensor (TPS) to make sure the stumble is not due to a bad spot in the TPS.

This could be a bad ground on the ECM. When it is in park it is open loop. When you put it in gear, the ecm goes closed loop with the oxygen sensors and with no ground it dies.

yes try getting the fuel pump pressure tested by a mechanic. the other thing it can be is the injectors are plugged try running some lucas fuel system cleaner.

What engine code is stored in the computer? You may have a bad TPS (throttle postioning sensor), or a bad O2 sensor. Auto Zone can retrieve the code for you, and tell you what sensor it is related to.

Idles bad


Sounds like you may have an upper intake manifold leak. Typically the gasket between the Plenum and the lower intake dries up and gets sucked into the intake a little causing a leak and a high idle issue. The repair requires the removal of the plenum and replacement of the gasket. NOTE: there is a torx bolt hidden between the center plenum runners and can only be seen by looking straight down at the top of the plenum and it may be covered in dirt. If you have to use a bar to pry off the plenum you probably have missed a bolt. Typically it is the one noted above. Best of luck.
