RPM gage 2005 Ford Taurus fluctuates or just dies

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!

SOURCE: My RPM gage on my mustang saleen isn t working

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!)

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Taurus has problems accerlerating...

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.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Taurus, 90K, used car, engines shakes, ABS goes on

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.

How should I go about diagnosing and repairing a 2002 Ford Taurus with 50,000 miles that is giving off multiple transmission error codes but shifts and runs fine and has no symptoms other than the war


Was the car parked because it had these codes 2 years ago? You need to check all connections for corrosion and or being loose to start with, including the battery cables and then load test battery.. The codes indicate that a sensor or solenoid is not getting power. There is no easy simple way to find out which it is. You will need a book to guide you through steps of diagnosing because the circuits have different voltage signals at different connections.

2005 Mustang GT idleing problem


may be it the problem of another throttle body.also check the ignition switch.

Check all of the battery terminals and cables and check the wires on the starter/selonoid, start from the battery and follow the cable out and check all conections , clean and tighten them and if it still does it the starter/selonoid is bad and needs replacement...

My 05 taurus is slipping into first gear and slipping into reverse what could it be


You drove a transaxle, knowing it wasn't working correctly

That & not changing the fluid every 3 years-- is a death sentence

The Taurus only averages 85,000 miles, life span

I once owned a trans shop

50% asian transaxle dodge caravans & 50% ford taurus -- was most of my work, at times through out the year

Ford taurus air compressor


Ask if the system was checked for leaks. Not just die checked but by actually hooking up gauges and watching. The system could be pulling in air ( and moisture) after being shut down. This is unlikely. But when you eliminate the obvious you have to start looking at the unlikely.

2000 ford taurus- wont shift into gear


first check drive axels , since you replaced front springs on struts i assume. it is possible that one of the axels popped out. next if thats ok check fluid level in trans with eng OFF should show over full make a srcribe mark on the stick. then START the eng it should go down to full or just below depends if trans is full or a little low . if level does not drop approx.1/2 in or so then have a transmission shop check for bad splines in torque convertor, that is a comon problem in that car, year and milage do not play a roll a large roll in parts failure in trans any more. not like it use-to.
