What is a Taurus 2 cycle??? When does it misfire? Report fully!

Quick and simple solution is change the spark plugs, use the plain platinum type, and the spark plug wires. When installing the plugs, be sure to use antiseize compoud on the plug threads before installing them. The proper spark plug gap will be listed on a sticker label under the hood. It helps to remove them air filter assembly and duct work to get easier access to the back three plugs.

96 ford Taurus. took it in for smog and failed, code said we needed to replace the camshaft position censor, so we did. it ran a little better. took it back in after 50 miles and now getting the p0302 code...

Codes do not tell you what to replace.
The cam sensor most likely was okey

PO302--as you said, is a misfire on cylinder #2,work on that problem
Spark plug wire,bad coil pack,etc.

Seek professional help,it will be quicker,cheaper in the long run, and they can verify it will pass inspection.

OBD Codes and check lights,only indicate a possible system malfunction
Then you need the knowledge, to diagnose the system ,and find the cause of the MIL Lamp being on

2000 Ford Taurus 6 cylinder with the alternate

i would check the fuel injector o # 5 cyl... if the injector is leaking it will foul the plug out and cause a skip. the next time it happens remove the plug and check for wetness. you may also be able to put a fuel pressure tester on, if so install the tester, turn the key on 2 or 3 times leaving the key in the on position at the end, do not crank the engine, watch the tester for a minute or so and watch for a pressure drop.

Engine light on. Had it tested came up as ''misfire on cylinder 4''

A misfire is when the fuel is not ignited in the cylinder of the motor.Pretty much the car would be running on 5 cylinders. most of the time, you should just need to replace the plugs and wires. And that should solve the problem.

Check the fluid as recommended by Ford. Do u have the owners manual? It will give the procedure. I'm quite sure your Taurus trans fluid is checked at operating temp w/ engine running, in park. U can also check the dipstick, Ford usually has the procedure engraved on the dipstick. The reason for checking the fluid as Ford tells u to, is because their method will give an accurate reading. As u can see from checking the fluid in 2 different ways, u got totally different readings.

You have to remove the parts that are in the way, then lay on top of the engine to get at the plugs, you will need a good spark plug boot removal tool as well or you will tear the plug boots, the plugs don't need changing until 100,000 miles.
