I checked the fuel pump, its not that. I have Spark, Fuel and Compression. I replaces the fuel pressure sensor like I need. The car started running again for about 5 days and then stopped (the car runs great when running, sounds better then 06 4runnner) I need to know of there is any special parts or sensors, something that would do this to a 2000 Ford Taurus 3.0L FFV E22 (4V) eng. or electronics system...
