SOURCE: runs rough/worse, backfire sputters, smell fuel

make sure all wires are secure on the plugs. Make sure that if you bought the plugs aftermarket, that they are the suggested equipment from the Ford (http://www.car-stuff.com/carparts/fordtaurus20002000motorcraftmisp432154315.html Make sure the plugs (gap) were not damaged during installation. Check the firing order is correct. (1,4,2,5,3,6)

SOURCE: I got a 2002 Taurus n it runs fine upon hard

That sounds like the camshaft synconizer..They dont oil good and they can squeak like a belt,,usually after a few mins of running..When your at wide open throttle the computer ignores the cam sensor so if it gets a bad signal,,it doesnt see it,,and you get no light...Look at the back of the engines intake..where the wires cross over to the firewall side..Under the throttle body..Listen carefully and see if you can hear it squeaking..Sometimes you have to use a hose to listen

Scan for codes stored ion the OBD computer. Many auto parts stores can do this for you at no charge. Based on the results - a complete tune up may be in order.

I got a 2002 Taurus n it runs fine upon hard acceleration until 3000 rpm to 4000 above that it's fine again, in between 3 n 4000 it spits n sputters like a misfire! No check engine light comes on.

My taurus has the jerks, and sputters?


The 1st thing you need to do is go to an Auto zone or Kragen auto and have them run a trouble code test, the OD light is blinking to let you know there is a transmission related fault, but it sounds like the may be other issues like the MAF sensor and passably a low fuel pressure concern.

2002 Taurus 24v OHC


Check engine light is frequently a loose fuel cap, but the other problem could be a bad fuel pump, or a clogged fuel filter. Try the fuel filter first - its the cheapest.
