Engine troubles

89 Ford Probe GL Automatic
I have been having some trouble with the engine in my car lately. What happens is once i have been driving about 15 minutes the engine starts to misfire every couple seconds, the only way to stop it is to accelerate(or let off the gas). It also happens on hot days much more quickly, within a few minutes actually. Any idea what this may be, something to do with the plugs and wires maybe? Oh and one more thing anybody ever have the manual transmission feature come on by itself, mine does sometimes. Thanks

Re: Engine troubles

Bad fuel filter, spark plugs or wires, or distributor cap.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
