99 Ford Taurus service engine light flashing

I have a Taurus with a 24v v6 DOHC engine which i just recently replaced due to the engine dying ( coolant leaked into the cylinder and basicaly exploded). After the car seemed to be running rough and i replaced the spark plugs which seemed to fix the problem. I just drove up to boston from the cape and on the way back the light came back on and was flashing. The road was covered in snow and every time there was a lot it came back on. Now im driving it lightly and the light has not gone off and still is flashing. I was wondering if replacing the wiring and caps would fix the problem or not.

That sounds like a good start. Especially if they are old plugs and wires. But the best to do is go to your local auto parts store and see if they will plug it into an obdII code reader to see if the car shows any codes.

You can always just try plugs and wires first if you want.

Does a 1996 mercury sable and 2001 ford taurus have the same engine


Its possible. In this time span Ford used two different motors, the overhead valve (OHV) Vulcan V6, and the Duratec 24V V6, which will bear the 24v DOHC badge on the front fender.

1999 Ford Taurus 3.0L V6 24V DOHC Duratec Engine Engine was misfiring, plugs replaced, KAM erased, Idles Slow and Rough. OBDII says misfire ocurring on cyl 4 & 5. Codes P0300, P0304 and P0305


i would check the plug wires and the coils you check the plug wires for bad spots at night start the motor up and look at the plugs if you see a spark arch out the wire and to a peace of metal then the plug wires need to be replace.

Po443 code 2002 ford taurus


That code is for the Evaporative Emissions. It could be a bad Evaporative Emissions Canister Valve or just a bad vacuum line or my granddaughter's 1997 Ford Escort had that code and her gas cap was NOT on. Now when you figure out what one it is disconnect the battery for 10 minutes to reset the computer.
