2000 Lincoln LS 3.9L V-8, 100035 miles. Will start fine and initially runs ok. After driving for a short period of time when coming to a stop and then trying to take off again, it will hardly run at all. It spits, sputters, misses, sometime backfires and doesn't seem to have any power at all. By patting the gas and prompting it some it will eventually pick up speed and go on. Once up to speed (35-60 mph) it will cruise along ok. If trying to speed up in a hurry it wil start siptting and coughing again till you let off the gas and gradually increase the speed. Have replaced fuel filter, both catalytic converters, all oxygen sensors, plugs, map sensor and one other sensor. Diagnostics originally said catalytic converters on threashold and fuel filter. These have been replaced with oem parts. Please help.
have the same problem?
