Car will start fine and run for a couple of days and then suddenly it won't start. Once I press on the coil wires the car will start and continue to run until the next time it happens.

Corroded terminals on the coil pack or coil pack connector would be the easiest thing check. If the wiring and terminals look good, then I would replace the coil pack.

    Just look online with you local parts store or go to RockAuto.com. I have had good luck with RockAuto as long as you can wait a few days for delivery.

SOURCE: ford taurus 2001 car start but once the car is cut off it won't start up again until it cools off the car is not running hot.

After you kill it, when you try to start it back up, does the starter turn the motor? Or is it froze up (will not turn over)?

Having codes P0306 and P0316 show up for 2005 Ford Taurus


Well code 306 is for a miss on cylinder six and code 316 is for a miss detected on startup, which you probably already know.
Since I assume you have replaced the ignition parts for that cylinder,
the next component to check is the injector. You may want to check fuel pressure too.

Car runs perfect then starts missing real bad then stalls


Not unusual for fuel pumps to begin to fail once they are heated up from running. First thing in the morning pump is cool, then as you drive, it heats up and begins to lose pressure. After sitting a 1/2hr-1hr, it may start again and run fine for a short time and start to act up again. Had similar problem and found good fuel pressure when tank and pump cool, but lost pressure once vehicle driven a distance and pump heated up. The hotter the weather, the shorter the distance I could drive. If you can somehow set it up to have fuel pressure checked when it starts to act up, that would certainly help confirm if fuel pressure is the culprit.

05 taurus spits and sputters on startup when cold


This can be caused by a problem in the fuel pressure check valve of the fuel pump. Have a pressure leak down test run by a shop, if the system is losing pressure then the pump assembly must be replaced. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank and is electric

My 2001 Ford Taurus SES all of the sudden started to shake horribly. It does so when in idle AND when attempting to drive. I drove it to work one day and no issues, no noises, no rough idle, no hard...


. The answer is to replace all the spark plugs and wires. Even if the plug appears fine to the ***** eye, and the wire has no visible damage, there could be problems with it that cause it not to fire properly. if you have coils on it, check them also.
An ignition coil that is failing will still provide current to the plugs, but it might not be enough for a full spark and the car will run sluggishly. If the current being provided by the coil isn't consistent, the car will run rough. make sure your getting good spark from coil first. good-day !

Started my 2002 ford taurus this morning just fine. Let it run for about 15 minutes before leaving fo work. When I came out my car was idling very rough and white smoke would come out the back then...


Have it checked at your local garage. White smoke from the exhaust system.....normally means a cracked cylinder head gasket. I would check the oil dipstick to ensure that there is no coolant in the oil pan. Coolant in the oil pan could mean a cracked cylinder head......a more costly repair.

Car stalls out while driving


Your description sounds like a ignition problem going on. Due to the fact that it starts to stall but stays running. The other two things I would check would be the IAC ( Idle Air Control Valve) and the EGR valve.
