Sputter on acceleration
I have a 2001 Ford Windstar with 160,000 miles. The car starts to sputter on acceleration or while going up a hill. What could be the problem?
cloged fuel injectors,run a can of sea fome injector cleaner in a tank of gas.replace spark plugs,plug wires.
Had the same problem with my 2003 which progressively got worse. Replaced wires, coil pack, and crank sensor to no avail. Finally my mechanic found out that my aftermarket alternator (3 years old) was causing the problem. Replaced alternator with OEM and the van runs great.
The seafoam does it just go directly into the gas tank?
