    You have to match an ecu to the rest of the sensors. Its not a plug and play. Go back to your original unit and do what I said earlier about checking the sensors etc. I'm afraid you may need to find someone with a plug in tester. It doesn't have to be a dealer, many smaller/cheaper garages would have one.

More likely its a temperature fault with a water temp or incoming air temp telling the ecu there's a problem. See if you can find an engine diagram of the various sensors and get an auto elect or good DIYer to help. Try "images" on google or bing for a diagram.

My 1999 taurus will run but when it gets to operating temp it cuts off, after it cools down it will start and run fine until it warms up again, and then it cuts off again. I can repeat the process as many...


A lot of the time when that happens it is crank sensor it starts to get hot and stuffs up how I check and it work sometimes is poor cold water all around the sensor area after it stops and if she starts up after you cooled it down you found the problem then just replace it

My 95 ford f150 runs great till it warms up it seems then the fuel pump looses power n shuts down wait few mins kicks back on runs fine till few min later


Sounds like your ignition module it is common on fords to do this when its cool it will start and run fine but once it heats up the truck dies until you let it cool down again and then your up and running till it heats up again. Some modules are mounted on the fender others are mounted with the distributor have it checked and let me know how it went.

Did they figure out if you are loosing fuel or spark when it fails to start up ? You would need to know which to proceed.

Quits after warm up wont restart


sounds like you have a fuel pump problem, fuel pumps will usually get hot and then shut off allowing it to sit 30 mins lets the pump cool down allowing it to start pumping, the way you can test it is get a can of starting fluid the next time it quits raise your hood and spray some fluid down into the throttle body and if it starts and then dies it is most likely your fuel pump, hope this helps.

HOW TO BLEED THE RADIATOR ON A FORD TAURUS 2002


Warm the car up till the cooling fan comes on then about another 3 to 5 min. shut the engine off for about 10 min. keep repeating till the coolant flows. The upper radiator hose will get hot close to the radiator and the air from the fans is hot. Leave the radiator cap loose or off while doing this and keep the antifreeze full. Be very carefull antifreeze can go up to 230 degrees and servely burnt If you are getting air bubbles and the antifreez doesn't go down you have combustion getting into the cooling system. The most common reason for this is a blown head gasket.
