I have a 2001 Ford ZX2. It keeps skipping while driving and stalls out when I start slowing down. Why is this?

It is a manual 5 speed I believe.

    I am not very familiar with that model, but what you are describing sounds like 1 of a few things. Either a clogged fuel filter, bad spark plugs, bad O2 sensor, possibly a bad catalytic converter.

    feel free to IM me if you have other questions or maybe we can discuss this further to narrow the possibilities

    It sounds like it may be a computer problem and it may be out of sync on the transmission Take the car in for a complete diagnostic checkout and have the mechanic tell you his findings,automatics also have these problems too,then have also the electrical system checked out for a loose or corroded wire somewhere in the system.

    difficult one, and that i'm purely an knowledgeable layman and don't do automobile restoration paintings, purely motorbike. The "smoke" shows gasoline gadget. White is water/coolant (very undesirable), blue with stinky scent is oil (rather much as undesirable), black is fueling (greater-often salvageable). Guessing some thing is amiss with the gasoline injection, assuming it has gasoline injection (I discern maximum vehicles after approximately 1990 do).

    I had the same car with the same exact problem same year as well. You had a bad fuel injector take it to a shop they will replace the failed fuel injector.
