Engine Performance problem
1995 Ford Contour 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 91000 miles
I have a 1995 Four Contour GL. It is a four cyl with an auto trans. The car runs decently but it seems to have a high idle and a bit rough but not bad. The car runs fine at higher speeds. When I come to a stop or coast for a peroid of time the idle abruptly gets rough and then dies unless I tap the gas pedal. It seems like something deenergizes or causes this to happen quickly. I can be at a stop for thirty or foutry seconds and its idling fine then it quickly changes and the idle gets rough. Then it seems to lose power when I step on the gas and abruptly accelates when I push the pedal to the floor. Then the symptoms go away and then return if I am doing a lot of stop and go driving. Putting it in neutral does not stop the car from dying at a stop. Thank you
have the same problem?
