Question about 2004 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

2004 Ford Taurus, hard to pump gas, from any gas station.

When attempting to put gas in my car, the pump constantly stops. It is an extremely slow process. I called the dealership, they said it could be caused by any number of things, but of course they didn't give me any specifics.

    I have a 1999 Ford Taurus XL and it started this about 2 years ago. I drives me crazy to try and pump my gas. If the car wasn't paid off - I would have traded it in a long time ago!!! If anyone can help fix this - please let me know.

2000 Taurus SE station wagon fuel pump how do I know if it's working when I bleed the valve underneath the hood should it a constant spurt not a constant flow or just aspart went the ignition on

The PCM - engine computer will energize the fuel pump relay for two seconds with the key , When cranking the engine the PCM will only energize the fuel pump relay if a crankshaft position input is seen . An testing fuel pump pressure should be done with a fuel pump pressure gauge only .

My Ford F150 engine stopped running at low RPM.. I wonder if it's bad gas? Clogged Fuel filter?

The first thing to check is the Fuel pressure at the Fuel Injector Rail schrader valve. You can get an inexpensive test kit at Harbor Freight. The pressure should be between 28 and 45 psi with the engine running. If it is lower than that you can replace the filter. If that doesn't cure the pressure problem then the pump is next.

I have a 2002 kia spectra throwing a P0442 code. Also when trying to pump gas into tank I must hold lever to pump extremely slow or the gas pump clicks off. Takes forever! Any ideas?

According to my book. the 0442 code means you have a small leak in your Evaporative Emission Control system. As to the fuel fill issue. Some cars have an anti-siphon screen further up the fill spout than others. Also, for some reason some stations feel they have to have their pumps double as fire hoses. Repair or diagnosis of the Evaporative Emission Control system is one of those things that shouldn't be attempted by the do-it-yourself mechanic.

I ram out of gas now my 1998 ford taurus wont start

It's quite possible you burned out the fuel pump. The fuel pump relies on a constant flow of gasoline to cool it. Unfortunately, you have to drop the tank to access the fuel pump, but is a fairly easy fix for an avid do-it-youselfer. Before you go to that length, though, try having someone stand by rear of the car and listen for the "whirr" of the fuel pump when you turn the key to the "RUN" position. (not "START", just "RUN") If they can hear the pump, try turning the key off and on about 5 times to re-pressurize the fuel system before attempting to start the engine. Hope this helps a little and your problem is not too severe. Best of luck!

My car is sputtering like its going to die and it shakes and when i push on the gas im not moving it does this once and awhile not all the time and there are no warning lights on. what would this be?


That could be many things, but, let's start by changing fuel filter, air filter and try to pump gas at one station if possible.

When changing fuel filter, pour the gas of the old filter in a container while shaking it a litlle. check for impurities..

My wife' Astro Van did the same thing every time she pumped gas at this particular station. Had to change filter 3 times in a two month period. Once she stopped pumping at that station, never had the problem again.

Hope this will fix yur problem. If not, will try somthing else.

Good Luck

2003 ford taurus, been running fine. This morning I start it let it warm up (still seems fine). Stop at gas station put gas in it, I go to leave and it won't start. It has plenty of power, and it turns...

Could it be the fuel pump? If you let it sit for a bit then turn the key on and listen for it to pressurize the system you can tell if it's working or not.
