First try changing the fuel filter. It is extremely easy and costs about 12 dollars at Wal-mart. If that doesn't work than try changing the fuel pump itself. Little more costly but still pretty simple to do.

Have the engine hooked up to a diagnostic meter to see exactly where the problem is. No sense in replacing a lot of parts when only one or two may be necessary.

Get the codes pulled, sounds like you are in limp mode and I am guessing an issue with the transmission.

While I was driving my 2000 Ford Contour - the car was lurching when I pushed down on the gas... it lost speed f rom 60 mile per hour to 40mph hour. I was on a slight incline. When the incline went away...


Thats normal for it to come on when it stalls.You may have a intermitent fault.I would have it scaned to see if it is holding any codes.I have seen this type of problem with other ford products and thay don't always set a code.that makes it a little tougher to find.Mass air flow sensor may be bad or dirty,thay have spray cleaner at your local auto parts store to clean them with.Fuel pressure may be low too.Autozone rents fuel pressure testers,if you don't feel comfortable doing this have your local mechanic do it for you.I forgot autozone will scan your car for free.Hope this helps.any more questions just ask and i'll try to help.Thank You for using fixya......iluv2fish........Ray.......

You definitly have a timing problem. I dont think its a fuel problem due to the age of your car. Its about past due for a timing belt/chain replacement.

Vehicle hakes when driving 45 to 50 miles per hour


Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.

Absolutely the problem. Timing belts should be changed every 60,000 miles or 6 years.
