2006 ford Taurus I change spark plugs and wires and coil packs but it is missing real bad and u can smell gas it runs real rough


I had a similar sounding problem on my old 1993 Lexus. In my case it was the car's computer. The capacitors on the circuit board went bad and it caused the fuel injectors to be constantly open. This flooded the engine. It would run, but very badly and it blew a lot of white smoke out the back. I replaced the capacitors and the problem went away.

Every time it starts raining truck starts missing and cutting out it's a 97 f 150 ford 4.6 motor.


Possibly a plug wire or cracked distributor cap. I'd take a spray bottle and while it's running (be careful not to get your body parts in danger of the fan) spray some water on the cap area. If everything seems fine, you could spray down each plug wire at a time. See if you find the culprit that way. For a vehicle so old, if you haven't done a tune up lately. It's probably a good time. Replace the distributor cap and rotor. Plugs and wires.

Check that you have the plug leads on the distributor cap the right way around and that the cap and rotor are in good condition and secured properly.

When it comes time to change the plugs and wires and distributor cap do the cap and rotor first. Remove the old cap with the wires still attached. Put the new cap and rotor on the distributor and transfer the old wires one at a time. Make sure both caps are lined up in regards to mounting position on the distributor. The cap will only mount one way. When you have this done then you can do the plugs and new wires, again one at a time. This way, when you are done the van should start right up and purr like a kitten. Hope this helps.

Check it with a timing light. Sounds like someone may have messed the timing up by removing or turning the distributor.
Also check for any vacuum leaks. don-ohio
