Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
At first the vehicle acted like the fuel pump was going out. The vehicle started then died after a few feet. The next morning the vehicle started and died again. The vehicle sat for a few days while waiting to be looked at. The mechanic said the vehicle started fine and drove. I got into the vehicle which did start and drive but the engine light came on. Using a hand held tester it showed the driver pump may be the problem.
Very well could be. after setting it allows the fuel pressure to become equal.

SOURCE: I have a 1993 Ford
Yes a fuel filter can cause the problem but I would say it's most likely the fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn on the ignition?

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

Like Laurie Mack said. It is the inertia switch below the glove box. Here is some funny information. DON'T change the fuel pump first. Interesting fact: I bought the new inertia switch from Ford and the install instructions that came with it said to install the switch in the protected area to the right where the fuses are. It is like Ford knows it was a dumb place to put the inertia switch, but they won't let you know until after you buy a new one. I have read at least 20 other people on here that had the same problem I just had.

It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.
