Take it to a parts store, they will check for engine trouble codes for free. They plug a hand held scan tool into the cars computer port under the dash, it reads stored codes on the cars computer. Write them down, ask what they mean, and how to fix the problem. This should solve your 'sputters and no pick up' problem. U can return here to post any questions u may have, include any engine codes.

Engine starts and runs for a minute or so starts to sputter then shuts off. will restart, sputtering and shuts after a few minutes. code shows iat sensor, where is it located on the 2003 ford taurus


IAT sensor is the Intake Air Sensor.. It could be temperature or amount and as the engine is stalling, I would suspect that the sensor is not measuring the amount of airflow correctly..Substitute a known good unit as these sensors are not a repairable item..

Small vaccum leak did not want to start got it started and check engine light on


Find vacuum leak by spraying NON-flammable on engine. Idle will smooth out when solvent hits leak.
vacuum leak is causing engine lite to come on
