Question about 1990 Ford Taurus

I have a 93 Ford Taurus

My check engine light keeps comeing on, and I seem to be waisting alot of gas. My car sucks more gas then a Ford Explorer, alot more. You can smell something like exhaust, and it has quit on me a couple times comeing to a stop, but it does start back up. I thought at first it was an Oxygen Scensor, but I'm really not too sure, and I can't aford to take it in to get it looked at. Could you please try to help me, thank you very much! My email address is feliciapataska@yahoo.com

    I just bought a 93 Ford Tauras SHO and my car kills alot whenever i come to a stop. It also starts right back up and it has a burning exhaust smell. Sometimes when you press on the gas it doesnt seem to be getting gas. Please help if you can because i have no idea whats wrong and Im begining to think I got screwed on this sale.

    You have to have a trouble code test run to find out what is setting the engine light.

It is possible that it is ur TPS sensor I had the same problem and I took it to Autozone and they hooked a computer to my car and that is what the computer said was the problem if u replace that sensor ur check engine light should go off. Let me know if that helped

Check your Oxygen Sensor. You are probally running to too rich. Might need new O2 sensors. There usually are more than one. (Oxygen Sensors).

Sounds like there might have been some dirt or sludge in the bottom of the tank that got sucked into the fuel system. First run some fuel system cleaner through it. If that doesn't work change the fuel filter.

Fule is leaking in 1993 ford explorer


The possible leackage could be the sending unit fuel line rusted and "cracked" after braking the bolts you might have to tap new threads to get the skid plate off then replace the sending unit. Hope this helps seen alot of 93 explorer's do this.....

1996 ford taurus


welcome to the world of owning a ford. after about 130,000 miles your check engine light will come on and stay on unless you reset your comps. but will come back on if the problem is real or the sensor is bad. see ford has it set up so that do it your selfers like me still ahve to pay them money some how. only ford can sell you a new sensor, and only ford knows where it goes. take it to a ford dealership and have the run a digagnostic on your car i bet uit's just a bad sensor.
