Re: 2001 sable cuttin out

Is the 4000 rpm while driving or in neutral?

Neutral has a rev limiter.

Park has a rev limiter too.

The coils will get a crack on the bottom sometimes. Could be a fuel pump too if it only happens under high fuel demands.

Changed the fuel filter lately?

The muffler has a weep hole for moisture BUT...the pipe leading to the muffler has a weep hole too. My 2001 Taurus SEL Duratec had it. If you meant from the tailpipe this is normal too. Water vapor is a result of catalytic process.

Re: 2001 sable cuttin out

You can test the TPS with a voltmeter. This usually causes a fast or wandering idle though.

With the key on and engine off the TPS should read under .99V Then if you manually open the throttle from closed to WOT the voltage should gradually and smoothly increase to around 4.5V or so. Smoothness is the important thing.

The TPS voltage test is easy and free if you have a voltmeter.
