Question about 2003 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

My car is acting very strange

I have a 2003 Ford Taurus SES.
One day I was doing 75 on the highway and all of a sudden my car jumps out of gear. When I was pushing the gas for the car to go the engine did nothing but rev. Does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem could be?

Your transmission is slipping. I would get it fixed a.s.a.p. Transmission problems get more expensive if not caught early.

2002 Ford Taurus SES 3.0L Vulcan engine. Engine/transmission vibration/hesitation when driving the highway and the A/C is on. When the A/C is off, smooth ride no issues. Read some on the issue, but I am...


The A/C compressor cycles on and off as you drive, sometimes 4 times/minute. This is normal.
If it is worse than it used to be, maybe the compressor is the issue. How does it feel if you turn off O/D so it does not shift into 4th gear, but stays in 3rd gear.

I listen from Taurus owners that just had the same problem (EGR insufficient and EGR excessive) and they replaced the EGR valve and the 4 oxygen sensors (if you do this use Ford sensors). This didn't fix the problem; then changed the Vacuum Regulator Solenoid and a tube mounted sensor part numbers F63Z-9J459-AA, and 4U7Z-9J460-AA. this fixed my check engine light and code issues, as well as it stopped idling so high that it caused the trans to jump into gear. It sometimes jumped so hard that he thought he had a broken motor mount.

Good luck (remember rated this).
