SOURCE: THE CAR WILL BE RUNNING

elizabethsne, my 2002 taurus just started this today! Have you gotta closer to a fix or is it still doing that?

I'm seeing folks suggesting fuel filter, tune-up, air-filter, and if that doesn't work, possibly a fuel-pump going bad..... i will probably follow that logic to start with, but will keep searching.

thanks.

What does the MIL code "PO 320" mean, please?


code p0320 refers to cam shaft position (CKP) sensor/engine speed (RPM) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --wiring--CKP/RPM sensor ---ECM
because the engine runs ok until it is on cruise control I would be investigating the RPM sensor for a fault
The cruise control takes its control from the RPM sensor and if that circuit is interminable the the cruise control doesn't know what rpms to maintain.

My 2003 ford mustang is sputtering and the check engine light is blinking no code


You can get a free scan from Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance auto parts. This should indicate a problem. If the standard test scanner does not verify a problem, the Dealers have more advanced scanners which can capture intermittent problems.

There are so many possibilities that you need more tests to find the problem. Offhand, if this is a V6 engine, there were problems with intake Manifold runners and sandwich gaskets for 2 piece intake manifolds.

Stuck manifold runners could provide lousy low rpm performance and perfect high rpm performance just like you describe whether a V6 or V8. The 2 piece intakes were used on V6 engines and once you get above midrange in Rpm, it could run acceptably at higher Rpm.

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.


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

2001 Ford Taurus flashed theft light while driving and stalls. It does that intermittently. Starts fine.


IT WILL HAVE EITHER PASSIVE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM (PATS) MODULE OR REMOTE ANTI-THEFT PERSONALITY (RAP) MODULE . REPLACE THE MODULE.

I am having the same issue with my anti-theft device in my 2003 Alero. Last year it stopped running and would not turn-over. $400 later, Brakemax said they just had to reset the anti-theft device. oK,...


the shop that told you they ripped it out only ripped you off unless they removed some aftermarket alarm system i,m a gm mechanic and if you remove the factory anti-theft on a 2003 olds alero it will not run ever again until re-installed make sure your battery is charged good turn igntion switch to run position but do not try to start security light should be flashing let car sit with switch on and light flashing for ten minutes light should stop flashing now start your car this is how to reset anti-theft was that worth $400.00 and again why let a bussiness named brakemax look at a no start condition keep on and you will be BROKE to the max HOPE THIS HELPS AND STAY AWAY FROM THEM YOUR FRIEND @ HELPMAX
