I have a Ford Maverick/Escape 2001 3ltr V6 24v and I am having problems with it. The engine will idle but when you try to accelerate it cuts out and will not restart for approximately 1 hr. Then it will start and idle again if you try to accelerate it immediately cuts out. It has new coil packs, crank sensor and cam sensor and does not show a Ford fault code when diagnostics are run with a code reader.
Could you offer any advise at all?

blocked fuel fitler, blocked fuel pipe, kined fuel pipe or a leak in the fuel line or something
it sounds like only enough fuel is getting through to start and idle but the moment you accelerate there isnt enough fuel to carry the revs so its dying due to lack of fuel.
might be wrong though.
When was it last serviced?
has it been standing for a long time?
has it been in a an accident?
check the fuel lines carefully
