Why might a 2001 Lincoln Town Car with a 4.6 sputter at idle and seem to miss at acceleration as if it is starving for fuel?

A friend told me to change the fuel filter which is mounted under the right under side of the frame near the right rear passenger door. All you need to change it is a small screw driver to lift the tabs holding the hoses in place, and a 5/16 hex head nut driver to remove the clamp holding the filter to the bracket, which is affixed to the frame. This fixed the problem! The dealership wanted about a $100.00 to replace this filter, which cost $8.00 at the parts store. Hey! They have to make money too!

Answer

each cylinder has a spark plug coil,called a coil on plug,either water has gotten down in the spark plug hole shorting out the coil,or a carbon trail has built up on the outer part of the plug.a new plug and coil assy. will fix your problem,miss,the hard part is identifing the cylinder that is missing.the code sould be p0301-p0308, the last diget identifies the missing cyl.

Acceleration simply refers to the rate of change of a velocity. You might say that the effect of an acceleration - any acceleration - is therefore a change of velocity.

There are a few possibilities, there might be a restriction in the air system, usually caused by a plugged air filter, if not, it is also possible your fuel filter is plugged, if that doesn't fix the problem, the most likely issue is a weak fuel pump.

People starving is an issue regardless of where it might occur.

A 1990 Cutlass Ciera might hesitate and sputter when the gas pedal is depressed because of water in the fuel or because of damaged or dirty fuel injectors. You might also have an issue with the wiring or the distributor.
