1995 V-8 hesitation

Discussion in '1989 - 1997 Ford Thunderbird' started by 95bird, Jan 8, 2018.

  1. My grandmother just passed away and I got her 1995 T-Bird with only 34,000 Miles on it!!! It has a slight hesitation when under load at about 35-45 mph. If you drop it to third gear and increase the revs, it pretty much goes away, but does it a little at higher speeds. I am assuming it is a vacuum issue, but not sure. Any ideas?
     
  2. My 95 4.6L had the same problem at a very low mileage. After spending almost $600 (for a tuneup that was not needed) at the dealership, car came back with the same problem. An independent mechanic diagnosed the hesitation as being caused by a clogged gas line filter. Filter was replaced and my wallet was only about $40 lighter instead of my subsidizing the Ford dealership. I still own and drive my TBird. Best car I have ever owned!
