Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

My 2007 Ford Taurus wont go forward or reverse

The engine light was on for some time. I took it to AutoZone and it read misfire and ignition coil. The ignition coil was replaced, spark plugs and wires but not at the same time. ignition coil was first, then spark plugs and then last the wires. The wires would only work in two positions for the engine to turn. The car turns on but will not move in forward or reverse and shuts off after a few seconds. The engine shakes very hard and a loud screeching whistling sound comes from the engine.

SOURCE: Engine misfire on 2003 FordTaurus

I have a 2001 Taurus with a misfire in #2, I've already replaced all the plugs, wires, and the coil. I did a professional fuel injector cleaning at a well-reputable shop, I then had that same shop spend a day and a half to diagnose it, and it turns out that it is a sticking valve in that cylinder causing the misfire, have them test the compression off and running to see if that's the issue.

Neither was the problem on a 2007 vehicle,still sort of new

You do need to change plugs every 3 years

I would change the Front Oxygen Sensors, if you have 100,000
miles on them---still not the misfire issue

The misfire is the ignition control module, if that is what you have,
since you mentioned plug wires,some motors have individual
ignition coils & they fail a lot on a ford

Those codes are of no use, their random misfires & misfire
on first 1,000 rpm when starting the motor

Have to diagnose each cylinder & any module issue

Whom ever did your work failed to do anything but replace
parts,no road test,no scanner data checking or code diagnoses

Don't go to the chain store or auto parts shops
Go to an old time local shop

ENGINE LIGHT FLASHING...CAR MISFIRING...INSTALLED NEW PLUGS...WIRES...IGNITION COIL PACK....INJECTORS


the flashing light indicates to the driver that the engine is under severe misfire wich could lead to damaging the cat. Have the codes pulled by autozone or advance they do it for free. Then start there but it sounds like it could be your oxygen sensor

97 ford taurus: Cylinder 2 misfire


Assuming the plugs and wires have been changed. I would look at the bottom of the coil pack. They tend to crack and short out.

Or if it's got coil packs they will also crack and short out.
