A few months back I started having a lot of problems from my T-Bird:
At the time I was running alittle low on cash so I just drove a second car around for the summer. So last Sunday I went and picked up my car from storage to take it to the shop, only it was running fine. That lasted for a few days, but now it's doing something different. I noticed that when I would go around turns my forward motion would stop and the car would rev up 1500rpm or so, but it wasn't like it was in neutral. So today when I left work I was stopped in our parking lot waiting to cross the street. When I went to take off the car went up to about 2500rpm and then took off. As I said, it didn't feel like the car was in neutral, and there was no sudden take off either, just went on like nothing was wrong. Really weird. I had the oil changed and trans fluid checked before I stored it and there was no trans fluid on the ground when I picked it up.SilverBird02 said:A little history on my car. It's a 95 T-Bird with a 4.6L, a little over 90,000 miles. It's got a Jerry II chip, Lightning MAF and a 3.73 rear end. About two weeks ago I started to notice that when I took off from a stop every once in a while the car would bog down somewhat and act like it wanted to die. About a week or so ago while I was driving I stopped at a light and turned and the car died. So since then the check engine light would come on and go off(with the chip the check engine light had always been on) and each time it did the car would either die or act like it was about to. Friday I cleaned my K&N filter, cleaned up the MAF and reset the computer(pulled the positive cable and left it that way for about 25 minutes). As soon as I hooked it back up and turned it on the car started let off black smoke while at idle. The idle was rough, would drop below 500rpm and bog down then come back up. So I gave it some gas a few times and when I went inside I noticed a lot of black stuff on the ground from the exhaust(carbon I take it?). So I drove the car home and under light throttle at higher speeds the car rides rough, almost like it did when I had a bad plug wire but not as bad. But, if I give it gas it seems to become smooth again. At a stop the car idles lower then normal with a funny smell. I went out to start it a few times this weekend and the first time I crank it the car doesn't want to start, but then does on the second try. If I give it gas the car blows some black smoke.
