Question about 1996 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Not starting sposmatically

After stopping, the car sometimes wont restart straight away, I may have to wait up to half an hour for it to restart, which it does without a problem. When you try to start the motor it acts as though the battery is completely dead. Mostly it starts without trouble. Someone suggested it may be cornflaking, have you heard of this? If so what is it please and what can be done to fix it please?
Thank you

Vapor locks

It could be a vapor lock but not likely. Since the introduction of fuel injection vapor lock has been eliminated.
You need to figure out if you are loosing fuel pressure or spark when it will not start back up. Could be a fuel pump relay or ignition module among other things. Even a problem with the vent for the gas tank.
