Question about Ford Fairmont
I have a VS ute also so am familiar with the car. If it is losing power it could be an electrical problem to do with the computer. On the dash panel there is an engine light - does it come on? If so that is a warning light which if you take it to a Mechanic with the right equipment will be able to tell you exactly what it is. It could be the ignition coil. If the car starts okay then just cuts out you will probably find it is the IAC in the throttle body. If you remove the Throttle body and clean it out with a cleaner from Supercheap Auto (for about $20) it should fix the problem. I had the same problem where it just died on trying to accelerate. I cleaned mine out with petrol and removed the two electrical components from the throttle body and cleaned them and made sure the tunnels to them were clean also. Luckily with mine I run on Duel Fuel so managed to get by on LPG when it played up on Petrol. Hope I have helped you - let me know how you go..
