Ford Taurus QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My car has always started and ran just fine. About a week ago, I got home...turned the car off. About 10 min later I tried to start the car, and it wouldn't. After waiting about an hour it started perfectly, but when I tried to leave my driveway going uphill it chugged and cut off. I coasted back and was in the downhill position. It started up and as soon as I started going uphill it cut off again. It is nearly full of gas, so I know that's not the issue...but I can not drive the car because it will not make it out of my driveway. What should I check? I am completely baffled.

I've pulled 10 different codes, all say Heated O2 sensor. Bank 1 sensor 1. Of course the car is too new to find anything on it. I'm just trying to find some diagram or something to show me which O2 sensor it is and where it's located.
My cars doors won't shut,no matter how many times you try they keep poping open.
The radio works great. Just won't light up unless my headlights are on
Upper intake gases was done
I replaced the rear brake hose and wheel cylinder but at the bottom behind the back part of the drum system is a hose coming from the front that seems to be leaking brake fluid. Is this the parking brake hose? Could it be leaking? If so do I need to replace it or gix the leak? I am a driver so I need my car working correctly. Soon as I added fluid and started pumping brake under pressure it started to leak.
Already replaced 3 coils, plugs and car still coming up with same codes
While the car is in park u can hear it sputtering. The car was sitting for awhile before I bought it. My car only has 105,740 miles on it. Can u help me
I just let it run for about 10 mins yesterday with no problem, battery and alternator both showed fine voltage. It'll turn over, and almost start but instead the car backfires sometimes and the car shakes and putts. When it did start, as soon as u put it in gear you could tell a huge difference. While in park, it sounds just fine, running good. But then when u put it in reverse it putts and the car shakes slightly, lights dim, and flicker.
I drove it fine for a day, and it seemed to chug a little while idling in gear. Some day I backed it out of my driveway and it died and wouldn't start without a jump. After that it started fine but whenever I put it in gear the lights would flicker and the car would shake slightly. Would not happen while in park. Now I can't get it to start at all, it turns over. And sometimes it sounds like it's about to start but the car just shakes and instantly shuts off. Checked the battery and alternator, both were giving plenty of voltage. Can hear the fuel pump turn on. Put in heet and gas since it was running low. Nothing helped
What else $300 later...did plugs too.
My car ran out of gas on the highway Christmas Eve night. I returned to the car with gas and it will turn over a couple times and then it seems like the whole engine locks up. The fuel pump is coming on but it was loud when normally I can't hear it. My truck is broken down and now my car is to!! Anybody have any ideas??
In summer the heat wouldn't stop, I could turn the fan off but heat would NOT stop coming through the vents. Now, no heat at all- fan works great, I've been told it's the "flap stuck" most likely. How do I diagnose?
