Question about 1998 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

98 Taurus 95K milage, was running fine until today. Acts like it's starving for gas and bucks. Turn it off and back on and it seems to clear itself out until I slow down and come to a stop, then it happens again.

Runs fine then it trys to die and runs very ruff acts like its starving for fuel changed fuel filter and still does it ?


Check the fuel pump pressure.
Also; when you use gas with ethanol, it attracts humidity that can turn into water during storage.
The answer is premium fuel.

Truck acts like it is running out of gas? Replaced fuel filter. Ran fine for awhile but now still acts like it is starving for fuel.


my '93 f-250 (4.9L) stopped running while driving, now it acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Tried switching tanks, but still does the same. What would be the problem.

98 buick car runs great untill i put gas


Sounds like water in fuel tank. Try putting some gasline antifreeze in, (maybe a couple of bottles) will clear up water and problem if that's it.

Engine surges when cold - Once it warms up it runs fine


If carburated, I would suspect a sticking choke, making the fuel mix way too rich.
