After I start my fine Ford, she gets warmed up and shortly there after the engine spits sputters and stops. I can go a little distance, a few feet if I restart and use the choke. There is gas in the engine and I have no idea what is causing this. Any ideas? Good battery good starting power just quits after she warms up, and that don't take long. Help!!!

Gas in the engine as in gas in the oil?? If yes do not run it any till you have changed the oil or you can spin a rod bearing. Does it have a fuel pump?? If yes the pump could be going bad and in that case could be dumping gas into the engine plus not supplying enough gas for it to run.

You should mention whether you have a 3 or 4 cylinder 4000.
Always, always check your spark first.
Verify that you have a bright bluish white spark that wull jump at least 1/4". As soon as it sputters or quits get out of the seat, pull a plug wire and check. Requires no tools.
Short or yellowish spark will not do.
If you have good spark then go on to fuel.

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
