HI ALL!


I HAVE A 96 COUGAR LX V-8 4.6L. I BOUGHT IT USED AND HAVE BABIED IT. OIL CHANGES EVERY 3,000. CHECKED SPARK PLUGS EVERY 6 MONTHS. NO BRAKE OR MUFFLER PROBLEMS. BUT I HAVE HAD A CATALATIC CONVERTER, ALTERNATOR, STARTER, INTAKE MANIFOLD PUT IN. I JUST CAN'T WIN WITH THIS FREAKIN CAR. BUT STILL I BABY HER. SHE IS MY TRANSPORTATION AND I AM ON LIMITED FUNDS NOW. MY QUESTION IS, RIGHT NOW MY ENGINE HESITATES AND SPUTTERS WHEN ACCELERATING AND RUNS ROUGH. RPM'S ARE RIGHT ON AND NORMAL AT IDLE AND VARIOUS SPEEDS. YET SHE JERKS AND SPUTTERS. AT IDLE SHE SHAKES AND ROCKS SOME. IT IS FRUSTRATING BECAUSE I TAKE CARE OF HER. I CAN'T AFFORD A DIAGNOSTIC OF $100 ANYMORE. MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT HAS BEEN ON FOR 15 MONTHS AND THAT IS WHY I HAVE HAD ALL THOSE PARTS REPLACED BUT STILL TO NO AVAIL. I HAVE A 97 COUGAR FOR A PARTS CAR. PLEASE IF ANYONE CAN HELP ME-IT WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANKS , BRUCE
