Q: Hesitates and sometimes dies after warming up when you accelerate. on 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis

Our 20000 Grand Mar. hesitates and sometimes dies after warming up when you accelerate. We have had new plugs, new gas filter, new fuel pump and replaced four sensors, including the throttle position sensor. I thought the OD was not working properly ,but after replacing the Throttle position sensor it is fine. It runs great until it warms up , but after about 10 min. it starts to hesitate and will die after acceleration from a stop.

Mine was having the same problem. Come to find out all that was wrong was the Idle Air Control Valve.
Check for any Check Engine codes. There are several things that could cause these issues. For example, a vacuum leak, a defective Mass Air Flow Sensor etc.
