Question about 2000 Ford Taurus

2000 Ford Taurus 6 cylinder with the alternate

It's a 2000 Ford Taurus 6 cylinder with the alternate fuel souce option engine with 83,000 miles on it.
I have changed out the spark plug and regapped it, the spark plug wire, and ignition block. Then have the check engine light canceled. The car cranks and idles smooth and drives like a dream for about 200 miles. Then I will come out in the morning, crank the car and experience a rough idle. The check engine light comes back on, I take it to get it checked and it is #5 cylinder misfire, again. I am in my third cycle of this and am at a loss for a solid repair. Any experiences with this out there problem, any real fix suggestions?
Thanks... Dutch

    the part that you are calling the ignition block is that the part that the plug wires hook to if so this is the coil pack if that is not what you are talking about check the coil pack for cracks if none are found check the injector

I would check the fuel injector o # 5 cyl... if the injector is leaking it will foul the plug out and cause a skip. the next time it happens remove the plug and check for wetness. you may also be able to put a fuel pressure tester on, if so install the tester, turn the key on 2 or 3 times leaving the key in the on position at the end, do not crank the engine, watch the tester for a minute or so and watch for a pressure drop.

I'm not sure what kind of "cylinder problem" would cost you $450. If you need a valve job or full engine rebuild it would cost you much more. The only thing I can think of in that price range might be a faulty fuel injector. Try adding some fuel injector cleaner to a tank of gas, and maybe try running a tank or two of premium through, as well. If the problem is a dirty injector, this might clear it up (and costs very little). Changing spark plugs is also a much cheaper option to try. Running it 5 miles a day with a miss for a couple of weeks shouldn't hurt anything. The garage you talked to may very well be honest, but some places will still (unfairly) assume that a woman is an easy target to rip off.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Check your fluid levels on the car. One may be low and causing that sound you hear. More then likely, it needs a tune up. Change the spark plugs, wires, coils, coil pack, and distributor cap. Change the air filter and the fuel filter. Check for vacuum leaks on the engine. Change all your fluids. This will help your car a lot. Spark plugs will help your gas mileage a little, as well as the lack of power. This will help your car greatly.

Back 3 spark plugs on a Ford Taurus - do I have take manifold off to change them?


Yep, or pull the engine. Ever wonder why the 100,000 mile service is one thousand dollars. That is what happens when you stuff a large v-6 in to a four cylinder engine compartment.
