Question about 1998 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Intermitent power 98 Taurus 95K milage. Was running fine and then it just stopped responding to the gas pedal. If I turn it off and start it again it runs ok until I come to a stop and then try to take off again. It bucks and acts as if it's gas deprived, it bearly gets up to 20mph and will die out. The tach shows no increase when stepping on the pedal, but turn it off and it comes back to life until the next stop sign. Transmission problem? Bad gas? Electrical? Fuel Filter?..........

Why wont my car accelerate?


If you have an overdrive transmission the direct drive clutch may not be releasing. Have the trouble codes read to see if the computer or a sensor is starting to fail.

If it is running bad enough to be backfiring, the Check Engine light should be on. I would start with scanning the engine computer for fault codes.

Engine stalls, then runs after pressing accelerator


If you were low on gas at the time, it could have shifted the fuel in the tank when you turned. The engine can stall for a couple of seconds and then restart as the fuel pump primes again.

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.

Nissan Sentra random stalls and wont start hot


Check out the catalytic converter, might be plugged up. I have seen some cars that will run fine, and like someone threw a switch the car acted like yours, no power, would not rev and died. Later when cold they would be OK for a while then just get worse and worse.
