First I would replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been changed recently, might check the fuel pump relay, might be going out. Lastly, it might just be the fuel pump going out. I just had to replace mine on a '96 SHO. Hope this helps

95 Ford Taurus SHO 3.2 stalls randomly


On one of the occasions when it won't start back up, someone will need to figure out if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to be able to troubleshoot the problem.

1995 Ford SHO Taurus, MY car is leaking oil and smoke is coming from the tailpipe, it still drives and dont overheat Can you PLEASE HELP ME


Sorry TrishaBut it isjust getting old. leaking oil is one thing, but when it starts smoking, its probably the rings on the pistons. It's probably time to startlooking for another car. It would cost much more than the car is worth to repair or replace the engine. Unless you know some one that would do the labor for free.

1995 Ford Taurus Sho 3.2 check engine light blink 3 3 1 3 3


Code 33 is EGR opening not detected, this is caused by a plugged EGR exhaust passage in the upper intake manifold, this is a common SHO engine fault, the valve works but the engine does nothing that the computer can sense, since no gas flows, to verify this is the problem open the egr at idle, the engine should almost die, if nothing happens or only a tiny change in idle speed or quality the passages are plugged, if it does stall or get real rough the egr position sensor (usual code for sensor is 32) may be faulty or the valve is sticking. I was a ford dealer tech for 30 years and did quite a few of these, there is a TSB (technical service bulletin) about this problem

your best bet for a diagram is to ask for a suspension printout at your local dealership. Or take a look under any 86-95 Ford Taurus SLO, SHO, or Sable and they use the same design (the SHO just uses slightly different parts. Here is a link though for a SHO parts list with part numbers. Hope this helps.

I need a list of the EGR/Trouble codes for a 1994 Ford SHO Taurus


Sounds like the catalytic converter has gone bad. What happens is you car as you drive will lose power, smell like rotten eggs and stall out. The reason is, the cat. is plugged up and cannot let the exhaust out of the tail pipe like it should. The exhaust is staying in the engine causing it to stall out and loose pwer.
