Check ignition module: My 2001 Ford Taurus runs for about 30-45 min.; then, when I need to start it up again, when I put my foot on the gas pedal, it just rumbles and I can't go anywhere; sometim
You have a possibility of 2 things at the same time the first is the idle air control valve this controls idle the other is the throttle position sensor if you start the car when it's cold and you hear the rpms go from high and then settle to park curb idle then it should be OK when you put the car in drive the rpms go lower and this is normal but the throttle position sensor has changed its position inside and there's a worn dead spot in the contacts so the engine is stumbling and can't run this is a classic tps symptom but understand that I'm not there so I can only tell you that you must check vacuum lines for breaks and leaks what do you mean about check ignition module are you getting this trouble code? Also is your motor running real hot this is causing the no start till it cools down and is also affecting both sensors and a possible gasket leak allowing to much air into the system causing the stumbling from heat expansion spray carb cleaner around the throttle body if idle increases then that's your problem the amount of fuel/air mixture is out of specification the other thing is was the check engine light on before this happened? And is it on now? If so clear any codes by disconnecting the battery cables and wait 5min then reconnect them after doing this just turn your key to the on position and observe the dash lights ex.check engine abs airbag etc.you are in self test mode and if everything is working ok those lights will go out now start the car and try to go for a ride if you can great do so and if the check engine light comes on now you must have that code read to make sure that your not reading old codes in the keep alive memory that's why you disconnected the battery and the same goes for if the light stayed on after self test you are reading a brand new code that was set and find out what it is I'm explaining these other things because I'm not sure what you meant by check ignition module right down everything you have done and post back if the problem still is present good luck stephen

The description you give is a bit puzzling. A leak usually will continue to leak unless it is repaired. Bringing up the fluid level will only help until the fluid runs out again. Find a reputable place to seek service.
You are often better off going to a Dealer or multi-service repair place. Consider this, in many instances if you go to a specialty shop you will only receive that specialty. If they have no other service to offer you, they may perform a service you do not need as it is the only service they perform. An honest place would send you to another shop.

Car not able to stay on.
If battery keep dying in few hours then check if there is something drawing battery while car is of. It could be something easy like broken switch on door which leaves lights on to faulty computer which doesn't turn off . Sometimes those things are almost impossible to find and chaperone is to disconnect battery when leaving car overnight. Just make sure there is not electrical short somewhere which may cause car fire. Also is good idea to park car in quiet place, tur it off and listen for anything running, like radiator fan, ac blower etc.

Mustang 2006 coupe water on passenger side floor, where are the drain areas for this car?
sounds like your A/C drain is clogged since its in that area...only other drain holes are at the very bottom of the doors which would not cause a build-up of water in the area your talking about...chek A/C drain hose/pipe...if its raining when you find this build-up of water then possibly your windshield needs attention...just squirt a water hose at the windshield in the general area of the leak and have someone look inside for any leaks...Cecil
