    hi

    my dads crown vic (ye i know) got this problem where it wont go above 40mph

    the engine would just give no power after that

    it would also randomly stop accelerating if u hit the gas, it just would not go

    if u hit the brakes, make a turn , or shut it off it accelerates fine after that

    the mech said it was the feul but he drained it and put new fuel in and still the same is happening

    sorry that this is not a honda but hopefully some1 could pinpoint me in the right direction, i know theres some good techs on this board that know about general auto problems

    only 86k miles on the thing too and giving all sorts of trouble

    my legend has 113k and never had any major mechanical problems

    thanks in advance for any help

    sounds electrical/ignition related... maybe a loose ground also?
