May be several problems but want to sort out the hesitating prob. Car runs well when on highway, and when cold. Bit once warm, and idling hesitates a lot on take off, and idles rough. On gas its worse..cant use gas for city driving..will stall on gas. But no issue on highway.

Engine makes a whirring/ buzzing sound..but goes away. Sometimes a screaming sound but will go away when I manually change gear. Belts seem to be tight.

Could it be intake manifold gasket?

when you say xh...as in xh ford?,stuck thermostat/running way too cold is common with these,will cause exactly what you describe,temp gauge needle should be on r or m of 'normal'in temp gauge,genuine ford thermostat works best.

Just Answer needs to be paid for its service, then it can pay its experts, the quality of the advice is because this is a pay -to -play service

Expert:  discostew replied 4 months ago.

Payment & feedback , free advice is not what JA is here for , be fair to JA and its experts , payment & feedback.....I might be a f n champ but that don't pay the bills
