I try to start it and it cranks but doesn't start. Try again it cranks a couple times and starts but the gauges in the dash all shake and tic for about 10 seconds then go where they're supposed to. Tried turning key to on for a few seconds and off then back on and the gauges act fine. Wondering if its possibly the ignition switch or starter. Also there is a chirping sound under the hood coming from the same area as the belt. Not sure if its related but they started at the same time (4 days ago).

I have had a problem with the throttle sticking. It has gotten worse lately. Any suggestions?
My check engine light came on. The code (at Autozone) said that I need an ignition coil on #3, plugs and wires... I find it strange that it said that I need a specific coil number since it is a coil pack and I can't change just one. So... I have to decide if I really need the ignition coil pack. When I pull the plug wires off (one at a time) they all spark. However, when I remove two of them, the engine does not shake. Could that indicate that the ignition coil pack is working and I need to replace the plugs and wires?
Any thoughts?

I have a 2006 Taurus SE with 91K miles and a 3.0L engine. It started with a sticking throttle a few months ago and has grown into a larger problem. When I hit the gas, there is a jerking or repeated hesitation. I have checked the tranny fluid and it is good and at the proper level. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
While driving it will suddenly slow down, then speed up while the accelerator is still depressed.
