No acceleration power

My 1996 contour, when accelerating from a stop sign it has hardly any power and doesn't have enough power to get it going, and almost dies out. And then slowly gets it going and runs rough.

Re: No acceleration power

Were there any other symptoms before this happened?

Is the check engine light on?

Have someone scan the computer for any trouble codes and repair any codes that come up.

I would also check the fuel filter and fuel pressure. It sounds like it could be starving for fuel.

Try these suggestions and get back to me with the results. We can go on from there.

The more information you can give me the better I can help you diagnosis the problem.

Re: No acceleration power

The check engine light came on after a mile or so when it finally started to run better, I haven't checked the codes again yet. I will try to find the fuel filter and check it.

Re: No acceleration power

Check the spark plugs too. If the #4 cylinder is misfiring it may just be the plug but other problems could cause this.

Get back to me with your results and we can go on from there.
