Ford Taurus ProblemsEngine 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.
If you experience difficulty starting the engine when cold, stalling at idle, or hesitations during acceleration, it may be the idle air bypass valve. This valve helps the vehicle idle steady when the accelerator pedal is not pressed.
The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.
Ford Taurus QuestionsHow do I get my car to start and dashboard and window to work.. (1 answer)
I brought another start for my car still want start.. Don't hear anything when I turn the key dashboard lights and window are out.. Engine won't crank or start..
I have replaced both the battery and the alternator. System stays charged for maybe 1 or 2 days, I go out to start it and it's dead. Both alternator and battery tested good, fuses are good as well. Could this be a bad ecc?
I put a 32oz. of power steering fluid in one day already and still there is none in it, I'm guessing a hole or leak somewhere. Still the wheel is turning but with alot of force.
