do you have an automatic or manual?

this sound s like a computer delay. the ford 4.6s all have. try quickly back peddalling the gas off the line. i drive a ford van with the 4.6 at work and it works every time.

pistons, or valve timing, maybe injection.

it is a automatic

what do u mean my back pedaling i know i guy thats got a stealth and it has a 3000gt motor same as mine and his will burn rubber

well i tried the fluid to clean your fuel injectors and that didnt help either

could it be that the car needs a tuneup? thats a trick found out about because some engines have an off the line delay and some dont. thats why i mentioned any ford with a 4.6 v8. im a dalivery driver and i pickup things like that. any engine without a delay will buck slitely. it doesnt hurt it. ithought that might work. your injecters could be bad. whats the miles?

check ur egr valve and mass air flow sensor, theres a recall because the wire harness has shorts and causes engine to staul under vibrations

130,000 it wont do it on ice or gravel rpm acts normal and tires spin like a mother fucker it just does it on pavement

is the pavement concrete or blacktop?

45

either one same thing w would that matter

is by any chance a part awd? ifso then look there becuase this is mindboggling.

its front wheel

either you have a lead foot or its something i cant figure out.

Sounds like the computer or EGR.
