when I step on the gas - my speedometer climes up to like 40/50 but I know i'm only going 25 or so...my rpms goes way up and then way down...if i step on the gas to quickly my car jerks...also going up a steep hill...it will slow down and it's like i'm not getting any gas - but all my lights and everything are still on. I don't think it's the fuel pump - i just had that replaced a year ago and it has under 12,000 miles...
Where would the relay switch be under the hood for the fuel pump? I have no owners manual and the net has PDF that doesn't get specific.
Thanks
Could it be a fuse, and, which fuse would it be?
I am in Michigan and it has been below freezing. Would a frozen fuel line cause the pump to not work?
Thanks
miss at high speed
I replaced the battery when the old one died. Overnight, the new battery lost its charge. I had the car towed to my repairman who replaced the positive battery cable and completely charged the battery. It lost its charge overnight again.
it has power sooo whats up
When in heavy traffic, ideling, or using breaks a lot, the car starts to shimmy, then it won't shift gears, sometimes there is a smell of burning rubber, & some smoke. If I pull over and put in park then usually 3 minutes or so I can restart and sometimes it's fine, have had multiple diognostics and several mechanics, no one can figure it. This all started after a repair for "master cylinder leak " also replaced all belts,the replaced belts were bad and had to be redone (used wrong belts) now this occurs on a regular basis...
HOW DO I SET THE TRIP ODOMETER ON THE FORD TAURUS 2006?
A loud popping noise always happens when turning far right. Had motor mounts replaced which mechanic said was the problem, but it still makes the sound.
Changed out struts/shocks with Monroe Quick Struts. Now any movement of the car makes a squeak (like styrofoam on metal). It is very embarrassing.
I just had the water pump replaced.That has not stoppped the coolent leak.The heat from the heater is luke warm.
My car is driving like the gas is being pushed, and I have to drive while holding the break, and it's hard to stop, when I put the car into park it revs high, as if the gas is being pushed.
Have a check engine code 174 engine lean in bank 2. was told to replace intake plenum gasket. I did, and throttle positioning sensor,imur gasket, idle control valve cleaned, mas airflow sensor cleaned.
Why do I still have this code. Could it be a bad o2 sensor? Oh I also checked all vacuum lines for leaks.
I recently had a timing gasket cover replaced, along with coolant and oil changes. Two months later, my car is sometimes sluggish to start, has an occasional burning smell while driving (but no smoke and engine does not smell hot either), and car seems fine otherwise. Any suggestions?
