Question about 2006 Ford Freestar

Open Question

Our Ford Freestar and bucking and jumping alot so we replaced the coil pack, had new wires on spark plugs and the plugs were fairly new. Now the car seems to buck and jump on inclines---then goes back to normal. When we start the car, it sounds good and it quiet. What else could the problem be? Why does it want to jump and buck on inclines? We are stumped.

SOURCE: bucking while idling

Have the upper and lower intake manifold checked. It needs to be a cold start. 2000's are notorious for having the gaskets crack and leak. This may be causing the engine to idle rough at start-up ans somewhat disappear after warming. Winter starts can shake the steering wheel!

P.s. I had it fixed at 65,000 miles (warranty), and am having it fixed again at $120,000 miles.

SOURCE: Transmission Bucks on hills

I have a 1990 Buick LeSabre with the 3800 engine. Recently the engine has began to miss under mild acceleration. It is not just a misfire where the spark plug failed; it is more abrupt.

when the engine idles it almost always acts like it the engine is misfiring and it is like the engine is actually kicking back every nowand then. From inside the car while idling, I can feel the same phenomenon. I kicks!

I am not sure where all of the notorious sensors are located and I not feeling like they are at fault. The only one that I feel could be the culprit is TDC sensor or and anti knock device if it has one. Of course it could be the ignition module, I guess.

What I am thinking is that if this engine had an old fashion distributor, it would be as though a cylinder ignited out of sequence or before the piston reached the point that is near TDC. Could it be probable that the the module allowed the spark to set off another cylinder sporadically? Does this motor have an actual distributor cap? Could there be a short between some terminals?

It is not valves because for short periods of time the "miss" will vanish.

The check engine light is not on!

SOURCE: car is bucking, engine light on code po742

"Torque converter clutch" solenoid is stuck open which is causing your bucking problems. The solenoid is either disconnected or faulty. if you ran over something, it may have damaged the wiring, but if not, you need to take it in for checkup.

2005 ford freestar that only misfires when raining.I've changed the plugs, wires are good&tight. Distributor cap? I've been told it could be loose or cracked,also been told it doesn't have one. Help


Since your van is not new, here is an old fix that might help you.
Open the hood and find the spark plug wires.
Trace them from the spark plug to the distributor cap.
On your van, the distributor cap is also called a coil pack.
It has 6 spark plug wires that plug in to it.
Both dirt and tiny cracks can cause your problem.
Before you start changing parts, try soaking the coil pack and wires with a good heavy-duty silicone spray.
P.S. Do not take anything apart first, leave all parts in place.
If that fixes it, good, if not, you may need new wires or a new coil pack, or both.
God bless your efforts.

Misfiring


Far more likely than a defective camshaft position sensor: bad spark plug wires, fouled spark plugs, or a bad coil pack are the most probably culprits. Also, verify that you haven't developed any vacuum leaks anywhere.

Where do the spark plug wires connect to the coil on 2006 ford freestar


  1. Hello your plug wires connect to the coil pack located on the back side of the engine to access this you better be a fairly good mechanic the whole plastic housing comes off in front of the windshield start by removing the wiper blades first then you can remove the plastic housing and you will see your coil pack buried on the valve cover twords the passanger side hope this helps u if you don't understand this watch a video on youtube type in the search ford freestar coil replacement regards Chris

06 ford freestar hesitates around 45 - 50 mph. replaced spark plugs, wires, fuel filter and intake manifold gasket. especially worse when a/c is on.


Let me shoot u in the right direction I guarantee it's your coil pack a common problem on these it prob has a hairline crack in it wich in turn is getting your firing screwed up and it will affect the transmission into fluttering at those speeds try a new coil pack and u will see a huge difference in your van regards Chris

Misfires and buck jumps when trying to assceralrate


When was last tune-up?? A bad ignition problem will cause this. Is this on the 3.9L V6? You should take it to a qualified auto repair facility and have them diagnose the problem, but it will probably be spark plugs, ignition wires or ignition coil related.

Code reads misfiring on cylinder 8. where is cylinder 8 on a 2004 ford epedition


The spark plug wires might have the numbers on them. My Freestar original wires did.

From another web page http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Where_is_cylinder_8_on_5.4L_ford_engine

Probably at the rear (closest to firewall) on the driver's side.

Could be spark plug, ignition wire or coil (or coil pack).

Diagram of the motor


Don't need a diagram for that!

Just follow any of the spark plug wires, one end goes to the spark plug and the other to the coil.

Good Luck.
