Starts but cut off after 3 or 4 min. started again, press gas and parked in my driveway 5 min away.

fuel pump or fuel filter needs replaced. sounds like fuel filter needs replaced first. then I would have a pressure check run on fuel pump to see if its working as advertised.

1998 ford taurus will not start without using starter fluid

I would check fuel pressure before and after you crank the engine.
The pump gets power for 3 seconds during startup - if the fuel pressure has leaked down you would have to crank the engine until the oil pressure came up to get the pump to power up again.

2004 ford taurus ses 3.0 pretty sure th.e fuel pressure regulator is bad but don't know if it's in tank or on fuel rail. Have to turn key couple times to fully prime pressure and car runs at...

The fuel pressure regulator is on the fuel rail..But it sounds like to me like a stuck idle air control or a vacuum leak..Look carefully at all the vacuum lines and make sure they are not broke or crimped..If it stuck idling high you can tap on the valve and the idle will come down

I am trying to check the fuel pressure on my 2004 Taurus, but I cannot locate the fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail... any suggestions?

It should be either on the rail, or by the rail on one of the fuel lines. Hope this helps, James Booth
