Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
If the car lurches (jumps forward) on take off, you have a faulty speed sensor. it is located on the lower side of the engine on the passenger.it screws on like a spark plug and the wiring connects to it. my speed sensor costed me about $29 at the ford dealer auto parts. the ford dealer auto parts will give you a print out of where the sensor goes. all you need to do is give them a VIN number of your car and tell them what your car is doing. don't worry if you can't find the VIN number (it is located on the lower part of the windshield on the dash, on the driver side or look on your insurance policy that you should have in your glove compartment. the VIN or vehicle identification number is on your proof of insurance card. the ford dealer will not charge you for the print out of the engine that shows where the sensor goes. My taurus was also lurching on take off and it turned out to be a faulty speed sensor. good luck.
