Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus it will shutter and die I don't have to have the air on, the check engine light does not come on I have had it worked on he fixed the idleing piece, the spark plugs, a few hoses just an overhaul and it still does what I took it to him for. It will idle a few seconds and die it dies at a stop sign, red light. I have to drive with holding the brake and gas pedal when stopping so it wont die and it has a hard time starting back up when it dies. I don't really know how to explain it. I don't know what else it could be someone said maybe an oxygen sensor. I don't know I just want to fix it.

SOURCE: My 2002 Ford Taurus will shutter and die when

the idle air control valve is responsible for engine idle.
this is a common failure on ford's. but I don't think yours is bad because it does idle high befor it dies.
you stated you had codes p0171 and p0174 these are lean codes for bank one and two, you said you found a vacuum leak and repaired it, the vacuum leak was mostly likely the cause of the lean codes, however the pcm has calibrated the fueling stategy for this lean mixture, what you need to do is erase the KAM "keep alive memory" this is done by unhooking the negative battery cable for 60 seconds, this is the only way to erase the KAM the $6000.00 machine I use wont even do it.

once the KAM is clean the computer will go into a relearn state and all operating values will be adjusted for the vehicles current condition, during this relearn session the vehicle may have some driveability issues (low or high idle, stalling, poor fuel economy) the relearn should complete within 10 minutes of idling and then 10 minutes of driving.

good luck and keep me updated

2000 ford taurus jerks at driving speeds, and stalls when i come to a stop can anyone give suggestions


If you run the OBD II codes,it'll give you an idea. I would suspect the usual offenders......old spark plugs,wiring,or coil pack problem.
An EGR can cause jerking and dying, but so can a vacuum leak,usually accompanied by rough idle before the engine dies.
I just did my sister-in-law's plugs,wiring, and coil pack in THAT order,because the code only showed `MISFIRE,cyl. #2.'
Even though the plugs and wiring were pretty worn,it turned out the coil pack had gone bad.
Also,how long since you replaced your fuel filter? don-ohio (:^)

Car will not crank over


Check the fuse box and make sure no fuses are blown. I had the same problem with my honda motorbike and thought the worst of it but then checked the fuses and found that one had blown. Once replaced the bike was fine!

Hope this helps you in someway! Good luck!
