Engine Performance problem
1993 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
My wagon has trouble accelerating from idle after highway driving. After stopping at a red light, the car idles smoothly, but when I press the accelerator, nothing happens for 3-7 seconds except some sputtering. After that, the car accelerates smoothly and has no trouble until I stop again. The service light is lit, but the codes say it is an AC compressor. The AC has not worked in years. The car does it when it is cold, but it is much more noticeable after highway driving. I have replaced the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor in an effort to solve the problem, with no effect. To top it off, my mpgs have tanked to about 17 hwy. I am struggling here guys. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
