Question about 2000 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

My daughter bought a 2000 Taurus, two days later it started running very bad. We took it to our mechanic and he replaced the fuel filter and ignition coil wire. It was a little better but not much. We

What could be wrong with this car if we have already replaced fuel filter, ignition coil, and throttle positioning sensor?

SOURCE: Replaced plugs and coil pack on 2001 ford taurus now car will not start

You will need to figure out if you have spark to the plugs, and if not- if you have voltage to the coil to proceed.

2000 Ford focus: Turns over, but no ignition (Quit starting)


If you smell fuel, it could be a glogged filter, it could be a bad fuel pump, it could be a bad ignition coil, it could be a bad catylatic converter. I would guess though by the info you gave, that the coil shorted out due to a faulty plug. Look under the car also for any sign of leaking fuel, your best bet at this point is to have a scanner hooked up to it to more closely pinpoint the problem instead of guessing and spending a lot of money on guessing

Maybe fuel injector


if you are sure you changed the last coil on the fire wall side of the engine. you could have a bad fuel injector. to prove it ,you could move the # 3 injector to one of the front cylinders and see if the skip moves with it. if it does you know for sure what to do.
good luck chris

99 taurus running rough smells funny light flashing


The reason the check engine light is flashing instead of on steady is because it is missing bad and the car companies did this to tell you to stop the car as soon as possible to prevent damage. That is the only time the light will flash off and on instead of being on steady.
The cause is a little harder to diagnose. It could be a fouled spark plug, a bad plug wire, an injector, stopped up fuel filter. I can't remember if that car has the distributer or the coil packs but you could have a problem there. If you have never changed the spark plugs or fuel filter, it is well over a hundred thousand miles to do so now. They say to change them at one hundred thousand but 50 to 75 thousand is better and you will get better mileage. The fuel filter needs to be changed every 20 thousand miles now days because of all the cheap gas we have to put in the cars.
This is for mechanics or technicians. If no one out there believes me about the mileage on the fuel filter, then take the filter off and see what comes out the back. Looks like black water to me.
