1999 ford Windstar loses power when going up hill or fast accelerated
It dose it when the accelerated quick it spits an sputters an u can push the
gas but rpms don't move then all of a sudden it jerks an powers backup. So
far I have replaced spark plugs wires an camshaft sensor
First I would try putting some throttle body cleaner in gas tank if that does not work take vehicle to someone that knows a little about cars and ask them to clean out throttle
Body with throttle body cleaner spray.
Agree with firebird338,clean the throttle body,and if that does not help,may not hurt to change the fuel filter.
Okay will do that in morning an let u all know thanks for all ur help
Hello, Good advice so far...but one thing you say makes me wonder...if it does recover power and continues to have power until the next cycle of accelerating from low speed low demand, then my bet is on the transition from that to open throttle... IE, in the old days, it would have been a carb accelerator pump, now that transition is handled by the TPS (Throttle position sensor),...and Fords Love TPS's... If you know where it at on the side of the throttle body, you can move it quickly and the engine should falter from over fueling. And this little jewel doesn't often set a code. Hope this helps, AskTrannyMan
