I was driving my 2000 ford taurus when I came to a complete stop but when I went hit the accelerator the gas would not go.So I turn the car off and it would not start in park but it did start in neutral....


This Sounds Like The Linkage On The Gear Box Has Changed ,The Lever Is Not Reaching The Correct Position When it Is moved to park ,Drive, Etc.
Check The Cable ,Linkages From The Change Lever To The Gear Box

The car idel is too high


Adjust the idle revs when the car is in either neutral or park. (2000 rpm is too fast for idle speed).If it is a late model car and therefore has a computer system then what ever you do DON'T TOUCH THE IDLE SCREW. You'll throw everthing out of whack. It needs to be done via a computer. Hope this helps

Rpm does not reach 4000 rpm


Neutral or Drive N rev limiter to prevent engine damage from no load over acceleration. D: many things could be at fault. Has your fuel filter been changed in the last 30,000miles. What about a tune up? Is your CEL(Check Engine Light) on? If so have a parts store check for codes, some do it for free. Then get back to us and we can go from there.

My 2000 ford taurus se will only start in neutral


You may need a park/neutral safety switchir have yours adjusted. Make sure the shifter lever goes all the way in to park first and see if wiggling and jiggling it makes a difference

My ford contour 2.0L Fi Automatic- can't go more


It's designed that why,so you don't damage it. It cuts off at around 3300 to 3500 in park and you say neutral.

Flickering charge light on dash when RPM's are above 2000. At about 4000 RPM's enginge stumbles.


Sounds like a diode might be going bad in the alternator. If you rev the engine in park or neutral the computer has a rev limiter that kicks in at 4000 rpms. That is normal, it is trying to keep the engine from blowing up. I'd have the alternator checked, it might check ok but be leaking ac voltage.

My 2000 Ford Taurus at about 4000 rpm does not go further with rpm even when accelerator is press more. It gives off a pulsating choking sound at above mentioned rpm. At below 4000 rpm the engine runs...


To do this in park or neutral is normal. To do it while driving is not.
There are so many things that could cause this but if you have no check engine light and it runs normally up until then I would suspect you have an exhaust restriction. This can be checked fairly easy on this vehicle, it has a DPFE sensor that mounts near the top back side of the motor.It will either be black or silver,will have a 3 wire connector to it and 2 hoses going down the back of the motor to the exhaust. You can disconnect one of these hoses and install a vacuum/pressure guage and measure exhaust back pressure. It should be 1 psi or less at idle and when you go to wide open throttle should not exceed 3 to 4 psi. If it does something in exhaust,most likely one of the catalytic convertors is stopped up.

It sounds like the torque converter on the transmission is misfiring, have it checked for codes.
