Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

My 1993 Ford Taurus SHO will cut off or not crank back up after being on for a small amount of minutes like 15 minutes. And I can't go too far without it cutting off sometimes

My 1993 Ford Taurus SHO runs fine, but when running about for 20 to 30 minutes it may cut off or if I cut the car off it might not crank up. I have to let it sit for about 30 minutes to an hour before it cranks back up again. And one time I was on the highway, and it started losing power but stayed on but was moving in a putt putt motion, and I drove it about three or four miles with it driving like that. When i got home and cut off the car and crunk it back up it crunk up with no problem

Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!

SOURCE: 2002 Jetta 1.8t cuts offs sporadically

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Yes you can. But rather than cleaning it go to rockauto.com and buy it. Part # AC20T. It's only 40 bucks. It's a 15 min job. I recommend u doing this yourself.

1995 Ford SHO


your best bet for a diagram is to ask for a suspension printout at your local dealership. Or take a look under any 86-95 Ford Taurus SLO, SHO, or Sable and they use the same design (the SHO just uses slightly different parts. Here is a link though for a SHO parts list with part numbers. Hope this helps.
