Question about 2005 Ford Taurus SE

1 Answer

WAS RUNNING GOOD, TRIP OF ABOUT 10 MILES, STARTED TO DIE, ENGINE RPM DROPS AND THEN QUITS. RESTARTED OK BUT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY DIED AGAIN. SON LIMPED IT HOME, DOES START BUT ENGINE RPM IS A MAX O F2

ONE OTHER THOUGHT, POSSIBLE THAT THIS IS THE ORIGINAL BATTERY IN THIS THING ALTHOUGH HE SAYS IT HAS BEEN WORKING GOOD. RECENTLY TURNED VERY COLD HERE THO.. WOULD A WEAK BATTERY CAUSE A RUN PROBLEM?

    Quick note.. was running good before, no problems.gas has 1/4 or better in it, seafoam added periodically. Temp when it failed in the upper 20's, no check engine light at all. Checkd the battery, is a Motorcraft, says 6/04 on the case, he says he has never changed it. Engine RPM normal at the very first startup, goes up good, then starts to drop, in short order it max's out at about 2400 RPM

If it dropped below freezing, you may have water freezing solid somewhere in the fuel system; try a bottle or two of "Dry Gas" and while the vehicle is running, it should mix with the water and get it out of the system!

Sounds like it could be the throttle position sensor.

SOURCE: Dies after running about 2 minutes

It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

SOURCE: Ford 460 loses power then dies. Starts back up. Idles fine.

It sounds like you might have a clogged catalatic converter on the exhaust system.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100%. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. If it's the fuel pump failure, you have not gotten the car restarted. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon and please rate.

1984 toyota pickup, 22R engine, stalls out when driving 2-8 miles


I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the rubber fuel lines being old and cracked. The hoses would warm up and fuel would squirt out of the cracks. I had to replace three fuel line hoses and it has been running great ever since. Good luck.

Sounds like a possible fuel pump problem...When they begin to go bad they will overheat and lock up, then work fine for a while and do the same thing again. By changing the filter you lowered the flow resistance and allowed the pump to work a bit easier but still being bad, it did the same thing again. There are other things that can do this as well, but pump is most common.

Car Runs and Loses Power and Quits Running


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!

Engine quits running after starting.


Check the fuel pump pressure while it is running and begins to die, the fuel pump has 2 circuits, one supplies power while you start the engine, the other after the engine is running, you may have an issue with the run circuit of the fuel pump.

Oil Pressure Drops While Driving


your oil pump is either weak or there is sludge i9n the oil pan. my adives is to have the oil pan dropped . chances are sludge is the culprit. as the oil get's warm the pressure should only drop slightly but pressure is generally dictated by engine rpm. pumps are gear driven so if it was a bad pump your oil pressure would start out very low at start up.
