    4.6L Tech
    My 2000 Mustang GT (142,000k) seems to "buck/surge/miss" (aka jerking back/forth slightly) when accelerating in 3rd gear, and every once in a while in 4th. It seems to do it when going up hills under heavier acceleration. I've read that a bad fuel filter could cause this? BTW, i obviously have a...

    We just got our 'Lucy' a little over a week ago and have noticed she smokes under rev. She also misses/stumbles on initial warm up. We're working our way on fixing little things and going from there but I am curious as to what I need to go at for the smoke. It's white/gray for those who will...

    I blew a head gasket in my 98 GT with 4.6 and replaced it with a 4.6 from a Mercury Grand Marquis same 4.6 but from a 95. It seems to run great and getting around 21 mpg but between 60-80 mph it has a miss to the engine. If I unhook the vac line to the EGR valve and plug the line, it runs great...
