Question about 2005 Ford Taurus
Hi -- 2 years ago I replaced the trans on my 2005 Ford Taurus. One of the symptoms that led me to the decision was that the RPM gage would fluctuate or just rest at 0...Sometimes it works and sometimes is kind of works and sometimes it doesn't work. The car runs OK when the RPM gage is messed up, but I can feel a change in the way it runs when the gage is acting up. I have a feeling (not a car doctor though) that this is some sensor going bad, but I need some advice. Oh, and the mecanic who replaced my trans couldn't replicate the RPM problem so offered no solution...but insisted that my transmission problems were fixed when I replaced it...thanks for any help you can give!
The rpm gage dont go the the trans its hooks up the the motor so your trans dont have anything to do with the rpms

the tach uses the same fuse as the other gauges, so if the other gauges have no problem then the tach is defective, Ford does not really repair these we just replace them.

SOURCE: Backup sensors not working
using a mechanics stethoscope..you can listen to the sensors...listen for the weakest sensor and replace it...the sensors make a faint ticking noise when listened to..the faulty sensor will be noticeably different sounding than others...of course the key need to be in on position and in revers (be careful not to run you self over!)

It sounds like the fuel is not being delivered sufficently to the engine. Try looking here. Perhaps a fuel injecter cleaner (you can pour Seafoam into the gas tank and it is a great fuel injecter cleaner and fuel stabilizer). What did your plugs look like when you replaced them? This can tell you a lot about the combustion chamber. A Haynes manual will be invaluable to you.

Are you getting any codes from the Check Engine Light? This sounds like it could have something to do with a sensor. Check your air filter and make sure it's clean. The tach on my 1999 doesn't really work, but it hasn't coincided with other driveability problems. The engine doesn't change in it's RPM's, the tachometer just stops working. Have your charging system checked. The shaking might be coming from bad fuel pump operation, clogged fuel filter, or dirty fuel injectors. Try putting an additive into your gastank to clean the injectors (a bottle of Seafoam is great for this). Try calling your local Autozone and see if they do free trouble code scanning. This might help lead you in a better direction.
