My 2004 Taurus losses rpm right after startup and shuts off, what can be the problem?


it could be an idle air control valve. Hold the throttle slightly open and see if that works.
Low fuel pressure would also cause this problem. Do you have access to a fuel pressure gauge? Fuel pumps are common, and restricted fuel filters could cause it too
A restricted catalytic converter would do it to. You can pull the upstream O2 sensor and crank it. If it runs then it means that the cat is clogged.

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.

My 05 taurus hesitates at cruising i am thinking fueling problem


2005 Ford Taurus maybe needind a recalibration of the ECM.For lack of power at highway speed,Misfire at load?low RPM also,The operation of a fuel pressure sensor is to limit voltage to the fuel pump when certain amount of fuel is not needed,and increase voltage when fuel is needed.If anything you need a recalibration of the ECM.

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

2004 Ford Taurus, stalls after stopping at a red light or in traffic.


Check the fuel pressure first to find out what the fuel pump is doing.
