Question about 2003 Ford Taurus
2003 Ford Taurus. 90K, used car. Had 3 months, driven 1200 miles..ran good until now. Now, sometimes RPM guage goes to zero, ABS and Battery light go on, engine shakes. Ford mechanic says just drive it until it dies.
Are you getting any codes from the Check Engine Light? This sounds like it could have something to do with a sensor. Check your air filter and make sure it's clean. The tach on my 1999 doesn't really work, but it hasn't coincided with other driveability problems. The engine doesn't change in it's RPM's, the tachometer just stops working. Have your charging system checked. The shaking might be coming from bad fuel pump operation, clogged fuel filter, or dirty fuel injectors. Try putting an additive into your gastank to clean the injectors (a bottle of Seafoam is great for this). Try calling your local Autozone and see if they do free trouble code scanning. This might help lead you in a better direction.

The first thing i would do is check the colour of my engine oil if it is either grey or white or has these colours in it as bubbles or even any conditioin other than black or dark brown it means you have blown your head gasket as this problem frequently appears when your engine has overheated
