slight splutter accelerating through third gear
Could be a transmission slip. Does it have overdrive?
it could be any thing from poor tune,timing issues through to poor spark and fuel injection issues.......however i do know that model has an issue with a small servo in the injection system, the good news? Ford only do a complete new injection system at around £900, and the scrap dealers? full of mondeo engines with the injection systems removed, sorry to be the bearer of bad news...
do all the simple things 1st plugs,leads,coil pack if it has one process of elimination my friend
