Question about 1994 Ford Taurus
I just had the transmission replaced on my '94 Ford Taurus and now another problem.. Now and then at 50-55 mph when the car is warmed up good, it cuts out.. like it is not getting gas and the engine light comes on and it shifts down for an instant when this happens. I recently had the fuel filter replaced so it should not be that. I also add a good cleaner to the tank every 3 to 5,000 mi. The car has 117,000 miles on it.. I also have problems with the accelerator sticking now & then. HELP !!
For the sticking accelerator you can try spraying some penetrating oil down the tube the cable runs through with the little plastic straw tape to the side of the can. Also spray some on the the accelerator pivot points inside the car.
On some Ford vehicles there are two fuel filters.
The one you see in the engine compartment and another mounted on the frame that is suppose to last the life of the car, so it isn't mentioned in the owners manuel. Call a Ford dealer and ask if your car came with one, if it did I would change it even if they don't think it needs to be. It's a cartridge filter and cost about $10.
After that I would do a fuel pressure test and a fuel out-put test that is perform with the car running.
