Ask the shop that thought all that work was necessary

Common sense tells you, that all those parts didn't fail

got to your local auto parts store and tell them you need a fuel pressure gauge for up to 100psi, it will connect to a valve stem looking something like the one on a rim, it located on the fuel rail on top of engine, usually chrome going to 3 injectors one each side, pressure should be around 50-60 lbs, if lower replace pump

Ford Taurus Cars... | Answered on Sep 30, 2018

Located on the fuel rail ( silver or chrome lines holding fuel injectors) you will find a cap at one end that looks like a valve stem cover. When you remove the cover you will find a connector which resembles a tire valve stem. You will connect the fuel pressure tester to this port, and you will need a second person to help. Once connected you will want the helper to turn the key to the on position while watching the gauge. You should see a small pressure rise when the key is cycled from off to on several times. Then with the tester still attached have you helper start the car. You should see a increased pressure around 40PSI. You should check with ford for the proper fuel rail pressure. The gauge should only move about 5 pounds or so while idling.
If you do not have fuel pressure I would first suggest checking the fuel pump relay and it contacts to make sure the relay is working properly. If the relay is working and you still have little pressure the I would change the fuel filter. After that if you still have low pressure I would suggest replacing the pump.

35psi is the proper fuel pressure while running and 40 when key is on

Check the fuel pressure first to find out what the fuel pump is doing.

2004 Ford Taurus | Answered on Sep 30, 2018

On the top of the engine U will see a metal tube that is the fuel supply to the fuel injectors, it has round sockets that fit over the tops of the fuel njectors, on that rail is test port, it looks like a metal valve stem, you will need to hook up a fuel pressure test guage to that test port, you may be able to borrow one from Auto Zone or Kragen auto free, hook it up and drive the car until it stops then see if it has fuel pressure.

have the fault codes read as it may be in limp mode from a sensor that has gone bad or recorded a possible costly failure in the engine or transmission

2001 Ford Taurus | Answered on Sep 30, 2018

The vehicle is nearly 16 years old now, so it is quite likely overdue for a major tune-up (including plugs, wires, and coil packs).
Beyond that, verify adequate pressure at the fuel rail, and replace the fuel pressure regulator and/or fuel pump as required. If fuel pressure is adequate at all load ranges, suspect fuel contamination (especially if you have been using ethanol blend fuels over the past few years). Replace all fuel in the vehicle with fresh in this case, and that should solve your problem.

Up until 2002 the fuel pressure regulator was vac controlled and mounted in the fuel rail on the intake manifold.
After 2002 I think it is part of the fuel pressure sensor which still mounts on the rail.
You may have to check with the dealer to see which version your engine has.

follow the fuel line before enter the injectors riel and should have a vacuum hose too, is the only part connected to the fuel line anter the fuel filter. thanks

Have you checked the fuel pressure when running?

Is the fuel pressure correct?

Perhaps your fuel pressure regulator is bad, or the fuel pump relay is going bad.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at
