1999 ford explorer 5.0 8 cylinder

Asked by Jan 16, 2016 at 01:38 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Lately when cruising down the road the
engine acts like it's missing. When I give it
gas it seems to clear up. When I let off the
gas it starts up again.  Any idea what could
be causing this. Fuel pump was replaced
within the last year and replaced fuel filter
again just recently. Someone mentioned coil
packs maybe? Thanks for any info you
could give.

check for a vacuum leak/hose..

Hey Kelly thanks for the info. I did find a vacuum line that was off. It didn't seem to stop the problem though. Any idea on other things I can check? Thanks again for your help
