Trying to find a evap canister for 2004 ford taurus ses 6 cylinder engine. Ford not making any more. Mechanic did test with smoke. Leaks.
Had a certified mechanic family member look at it, and he said it needs a front right lower ball joint. A job he cannot do. Also needs the air conditioning system looked at because air blows thru but it doesn't get cold, and it wont take the frion. There is a slight leak on the same front right side of the car, but that is a seal (already purchased and he can do that job himself). I am looking around for estimates and came across Leasure Automotives, and saw the great reviews about the shop. Hoping you could give a guesstimate as I am on a fixed income. If you have any further questions about the car please contact me with them @ my email address below. Thank you so much in advance.
Check engine light on
the car will start but dies immediately unless i push the gas. after it warms up it will idle real low at 500 rpms. Even though it will stay idiling in park, but it will stall during driving if im under 30mph and not applying gas
We changed the fuel filter last night after it was run out of gas. It runs but still wants to stall out so I am trying to check what else might be making it stall

Started out having a hard time starting, till wouldnt start. Tested the battery, it was no good. Bought new one, next day still having trouble starting maybe even worse. While driving, it was having trouble excelerating and wanted to die. To check the alternator, started the car and unhooked the battery and the car died. So I changed the alternator, not really being for sure that was the problem. As soon I put a new one in the charge system light came on. Again that didn't make anything better. Drove to auto zone , died on at a stop sign wwouldn't start . All the lights went out like the battery was died. After about 20 mins I tired to start it and it started with help. Make it to auto zone and it died. No code read on the engine . Please help
