Engine Performance problem
1974 Other Ford Models 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic? Miles
This may be long: I have a 74 Ford Maverick (4.1L 250CI Single BBL - Mileage Unknown).
Here's the problem: After driving the car, my wife had to make a hard stop, which caused the car to nearly die. Since it drives rough, wants to die at higher RPM (say 2200+ although I have no tachometer so this may be off). I drove it, it ran fine until I reached about 50-55MPH. It stuttered but didn't die. It will still spin the wheels from a stop and has good response to throttle.
This is what I've repaired: MSD Blaster-2 Coil with Ballast Resister, Distributor rotor button, Fuel Filter, Carb. Rebuild kit - Reset float to OEM specs, spark plugs, plug wires, PCV valve, Battery and air filter. I'm nearly stumped, and REFUSE to give up (this is a proj. Car that I've invested $3K+ into already). I've purchased a fuel pump, but haven't installed it. Just would like your opinion as to what it might be or confirmation that I'm diagnosing correctly.
have the same problem?
