1999 Ford Crown Victoria. Engine sputters and sometimes shuts off

I have a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria 8.6 cylinders. When I press on the gas and accelerate up to 60 m.p.h the car starts to sputter and won't go past that speed. It also does this when the A.C is running. The engine sometimes shuts off in the middle of me driving it down the street with no warning. What could be the problem?

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

I would try to replace your spark plugs, and spark plug wires, My 88 Vic did the same thing...now it runs like a champ....you could also try fuel injector cleaner.

SOURCE: Sputtering engine and break problems, 2000 Ford Focus

The brake pedal issue is a lack of vacuum in the engine while not idling properly. There are quite a few reasons for this issue. I would have the engine codes read first to see if you have a fault code for any of the sensors. It could be any of the following, Map Sensor, TPS Sensor, O2 sensor, Temp Sensor, Fuel pressure regulator, Air intake Temp, fuel pump, broken wire, bad connection or a few other things.
Have the codes checked first to help rule out some of the more expensive items.

First step is to change the fuel filter and test the car. If the problem still occurs: The fuel pump driver module was corroded through from salt and was malfunctioning. Bought a new one and runs great. Problem fixed. See pictures below:

This is why salt destroys cars.

What is the tapping sound under my hood that causes my car to shut off when i come to a stop i have a 1999 crown victoria its like its not getting enough gas


probably blown a lifter. means valves are not operating properly starving the engine out. this sometimes happens if you use cheap (ie generic store brand) oil or you run with dirty oil, once the lifters fail the only thing you can do pretty much is replace them. i would recommend getting a mechanic to confirm this before you go ripping the heads apart as this can be a tedious and sometimes costly job.
