Check throttle cable for fraying /binding. Check for vacuum leaks, check tps and any idle control motors fro proper operation, check throttle plate for carbon buildup.

2002 ford taurus gas pedal goes to the floor and getting no acceleration. the pedal itself is loose and won't retract into the up position.


The spring or wire that connects your pedal to the throttle body may broken or damaged. Check under your hood and look at the throttle body (it's the carburetor looking thing). There should be a steel wire connected to it coming from the back of the engine bay. It should connect on the side where you'll see a few springs. If nothing looks broken there, turn the part of the throttle body connected to the spring and wire. If it revs up when you move it, then the cable could be broken somewhere between there and the gas pedal.

Alternatively, the linkage on the pedal could have been disconnected some how. Check behind and above the gas pedal to see if eveything is connected properly.

2000 galant has no acceleration,can only drive by touching gas pedal


Check operation of throttle position sensor with a ohms meter through its range of movement. Resistance should rise or fall consistently through its range of movement.

Also check the condition of the following:

1) Spark plugs, leads and coils
2) Air filter
3) Fuel filter.

2002 Ford Taurus - Intermittent starting. Starts without any problem for days at a time, then won't start for an hour or two or until the morning.


When it wont start one day poor gas or starter fluid into injectors if it starts up it could mean you need to replace fuel injectors.

Engine over-run between gears


This is a very common problem for ford. I have the same thing every day. It is the computer not reading the temp. When it does that just tap the gas pedal.

2002 Ford Taurus has problems accerlerating...


It sounds like the fuel is not being delivered sufficently to the engine. Try looking here. Perhaps a fuel injecter cleaner (you can pour Seafoam into the gas tank and it is a great fuel injecter cleaner and fuel stabilizer). What did your plugs look like when you replaced them? This can tell you a lot about the combustion chamber. A Haynes manual will be invaluable to you.
