Sounds like fuel starvation. You don't say if it is carb or injectors, but sounds like carb. Check the fuel filter, the float level and needle and seat and the main jets for partial blockage. Yu can also check the fuel pump delivery and pressure and the vapour separator.

Ford mondeo sputtering blue smoke when revving and seems to have low compression when starting warm its the duratec v6 2.5 non svt

Sounds like the rings are worn so the engine oil is leaking into the head then getting mixed with the petrol and that's why your getting blue smoke , you can buy piston seal as a temp measure , another engine recon or get rid of it ps would have liked to know the mileage and year . Way up if it's worth spending the money on another engine good luck colin

I have a 2008 Ford Escape, 3.0L V6. I just had a Super 40 flowmaster professionally installed today. I never tried revving my engine in neutral before, but I tried today so I could hear what the new...

Hello there,

This is a normal operation, all your doing is hitting the rev limiter. It's there to protect the engine from over revving. The Powertrain Control Module or PCM cuts fuel to the engine intermittently to keep the engine from revving past a predetermined RPM when in "neutral", and in "park" if it's an automatic. Just in case something like a foreign object or a small child or animal were to inadvertently depress the accelerator pedal and rev the engine too high and damage the engine in result. I hope this info helps, and just for peace of mind, I am a Master Certified Ford Technician. Enjoy your new exhaust!! I'm sure it sounds great!!

(1999 pontiac grand prix 3.1 v6) when I turn my engine on, should my belt tensioner move at all? It moves a bit

its suppose to move up to 1/2", it is spring loaded!! Now if its squealing or chirping at startup or when the engine is revved, the tensioner is probably worn and needs replacing along with the belt!!

Engine shut off at 4000rpm

this sounds like an electronic problem. the control unit thinks about 50000 cycles in a second. it's bound that there could be a problem. a second hand black box or computer box should fix your propblem. goodluck

When slowing down & stopping 2005 Mazda tribute sputters and dies

Sounds like it could possibly be a vaccume problem, the computer sees that the vaccume has a low pressure and thus fludding the engine, or visa versa, it's seeing too high of a pressure and cutting the fuel comsumption to a minumum enough to make the engine sputter and die.. Does this happen when the cars in Netural or Reverse or Park? Just Drive?

The engine cuts out(spits and sputters)at low rpms while the ac is on. If I downshift and get the rpms up it quits. Or if I turn off the AC while it's cutting out it stops. The problem lessened when I...

Check the wires one at a time for oil on them when you remove them fron cylinder spark plug. If there is an excess of oil on them, they will short out to the housing under load and wii eventually kill the coil unit. They are not cheap, but if bad replace all at same time. Ford sells the wires and mazda. I would advise replacing the plugs with good plugs like ngk or denso. I will check again tomorrow to see if you need further help
