2003 Ford Taurus Question: losing power
Hey sexymama, I don't get to say that too often! If you are comfortable with looking at this yourself, take a good look a the intake hoses and pipes and make sure they are all connected. Then try to get the diagnostic codes read out (free at some parts stores) and post the codes here if there are any. If all that fails, then a diagnosis will need to be performed. This can be caused by many things, so it may be best left up to a repair shop. Good Luck! - Bret Bodas
