The car at time seems to be hard to start, you have to try to start it a few times. When driving the car at times seems to sputter. When driving up low grade or steep hill the car seems to have low power, sometime the car will just die out. When this happens we have to restart the car. Last last Driving along a flat strecth the car lost power. The service engine soon light can on along with the battery light and oil light. We pulled the car over as die out completely. We waited a few mintues and restarted the car. The car seemed to sputter up the steep hills low grade hills. The car will act like it is sputtering or loosing power at other times when your driving as well. The Tpye of car we own is a: Ford 1999 Escort Wagon, 185,000 km.

The car will start up okay when cold sometimes. The car will at times when cold seem like it will not start at other times. Sometimes with in the first 20 mins while driving the car it will act like it is not getting enough power and is about to die out. The Fuel Filter has not been changed lately. It does not seem to matter if is warm or cold out. The car started acting up on Monday.
