Check fuel pressure.

This fits better in the 96-04 section vs. the 2011 section...

Anyway,have you noticed any other symptoms (mis-fire, bad vibrations, odd idle, etc.)? As Kultulz says, a scan tool helps narrow things down quite a bit. My best guess though would be plugs (mine died well before 100k so if you got some miles on yours, this is a good start), bad O2 sensor (if you replace it, get Motorcraft only as Ford plays some games with them), or a dirty MAF (especially if you have a K&N filter). Less likely but also possible are a bad FPR, coil(s), sticky EGR valve or a bad DPFE sensor. A vacuum look could also be very possible. As you can see, a scan tool can help narrow things down a bit.

Easiest way out is with a scan tool. Not only will it show any trouble codes but the good ones will display engine data.

Acceleration issue

Hi everyone and thanks in advance for reading this. I Drive a 2003 Mach 1. I am having an issue with of acceleration sorts. When I accelerate my car kinda lags a bit. I don't know why it does it. I have been told it has something to do with my ignition coils or something similar I was wondering what the best way was to check them. and if anyone has any other ideas.
