Engine dieing Hi, I recently put Morrisons fuel in my 16V, 1.6 litre, 1996 Ford Escort Zetec engine. I usually buy BP or Shell fuel but I can only assume the problem is being caused by putting Morrisons fuel in. Upon starting the engine it sometimes revs between 500 and 1,500 rpm, with it not settling at 1,000. Sometimes it does settle but after about 5-10 minutes of driving if I let it drop below 1,000 rpm the engine stops. Also, upon acceleration the car is very cumbersome.The best way to desc

When my taurus has sat overnight...or when it's cold. When I start it, it acts like it wants to die...then it revs up all of the sudden and seems fine. The gauge goes in between 0 and 1 for a few seconds than it revs up to 2 and slowly idles down to around one. I only have this problem when it's cold outside or if the car has sat overnight. What could be going on?

While driving, my brake lights, including 3rd light, come on without touching the brake pedal on my 2005 Ford 500. When car is ideling in park and you barely tap the gas pedal, the brake lights come on and you hear a clicking noise in the gear shifter. The owner's manual shows all of these are on 1 10 amp fuse (F18). All items still function when brakes are applied so the fuse must be working. Any suggestions?

So I bought a 1988 Ford F 250 from a friend who drove it for a few years before he began having problems with it.

I have replaced the following on it and it still does the same thing. What am I missing? 1. Fuel Filter 2. Fuel Pump 3. Distributor, 4. Cap and Rotor 5. Plugs and wires 6. Miscell
