When was your last tune up? Change spark plugs, Check fuel pressure at the fuel rail 30psi.
How many miles on car? Have alternator checked out. If you need and alternator your looking at $900 and up its not easy to change. You have to move power steering pump out of the way to unbolt the top bolt. Then you have to take the right side tire off pop the balljoints, then pull the axle to unbolt the other two bolts and pull alternator out at the bottom where the axle was.

2000 ford taurus jerks at driving speeds, and stalls when i come to a stop can anyone give suggestions


If you run the OBD II codes,it'll give you an idea. I would suspect the usual offenders......old spark plugs,wiring,or coil pack problem.
An EGR can cause jerking and dying, but so can a vacuum leak,usually accompanied by rough idle before the engine dies.
I just did my sister-in-law's plugs,wiring, and coil pack in THAT order,because the code only showed `MISFIRE,cyl. #2.'
Even though the plugs and wiring were pretty worn,it turned out the coil pack had gone bad.
Also,how long since you replaced your fuel filter? don-ohio (:^)

I have a 99 ford Taurus single over head 3.0. Having an issue with a rough idle and no heat. Just replaced the thermostat and water pump. The old water pump was the worst I had ever seen. I have...


what was the worst about the pump?I don't know what that means? the no heat could be a clogged core, try to flush it in both directions and make sure water flows freely. As for the rough idle... is the car overheating or pushing out coolant? if so there could be head gasket issues?>?

2003 Ford Taurus wants to die when coming to a stop


TRY THIS AND LET ME KNOW IF IT CORRECTS YOUR PROBLEM
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
