2009 Ford Taurus Problems

Engine Buck/Misfire at Freeway Speeds

The engine may misfire and/or buck while driving at freeway speeds with no fault code stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This can be caused by an intermittent fault with the camshaft synchronizer assembly. This condition can be diagnosed by monitoring knock sensor data as per Ford service bulletin #05-22-12. Replacement of the synchronizer assembly will be required to correct this concern.

Camshaft Sensor Magnet may Damage Synchronizers

The magnet for the camshaft position sensor may fall out of its mount and damage the synchronizers. This causes long crank times when starting the engine and may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. If this happens, both the magnets and the synchronizers need to be replaced.

2009 Ford Taurus Reviews

Love this vehicel! Had a 500 before this taurus. The only thing is that here recently the steering wheel is "shuddering" at all speeds, not related to tires, and and has a noise in the front right side. When I took it to the dealer to get the problem corrected, they said there was nothing they could do about it! The car only has 25k miles on it. If they do not correct it I will update who it is...
2009 Ford Taurus. Pros are good gas mileage for full sixed car, comfortable ride and good visibility. Cons are transmission cooler repair kit ( Ford TSB ) loud vibration shifting to 6th gear, climate control blendor broke, had to remove dash to fix, sway bar links replaced, loud front end suspension knock, funky transmission shifts, have 04 Taurus with 160 k better car than 09.
