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.

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.

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.

1996 Ford Taurus LX wagon. 3.0L 24v Duratec. Stalled leaving red light then no power at all. Towed home. Starter tests passed at home by manually putting power from B+ to 's' clip on starter. Starter also...


I would look at the positive cable at the battery and at the starter. Pull the cabel off and a continuity test to see if the wire has a internal break if the wire gets even a pinhole it can build corrosion on the inside of the wire and when a current is put through it it seperates (from the resistance and arc from corrosion) causing the wire to seperate internaly.

Hope this will get you started!

A misfiring on cylinder 1 ford taurus 2001


First off, how long has it been since the plugs have been changed? More than 30k? Change them. Check misfire. If still misfiring, there could be one or more of many issues. Have the wires (if 12 valve) ever been changed? if not, change them. If it's a 24v could be a bad coil, if 12v bad coil pack. could be a faulty fuel injector or circuit to injector. if a simple tune-up doesnt' fix it, scan for codes and see if theres anything else going on and update.
