    Put new coil pack on and still running rough. My mechanic said to bring it to ford dealership to hook it up. Possibly might be PCM or ECM problem. They could tell there for sure.

You have at the very least a serious problem with misfiring. All of the above suggestions are possibilities, and sorting them out is a daunting task. Also consider possibility of serious slippage in the transmission (rpm surges and lack of pickup may be indicative). In any case, your problems really need professional diagnostics that are likely way beyond DIY. It's also likely to be very expensive. And multiple problems are also likely. Seriously, you need to take stock on whether the cost is worth it, with no guarantee that all the problems will be fixed, and especially given your past experience with this vehicle. Me thinks it's probably time to bite the bullet, stop throwing good money after bad odds, and move on. Frankly, a frequently failing 2002 Ford Taurus is not a good bet!

SOURCE: 1997 ram 1500 5.9 wont rev past 2000 rpm

well, the timing on your ram is computer controlled. is the truck in drive when this mis-fire occurs? or at idle? youve addressed part of your ignition w/the cap-rotor-plug wires. did you examine the old cap for carbon tracking? did you install the rotor properly? i know on my '97 ram the dist is feakin' buried in the engine it would be easy to rotate the rotor while installing/removing it so the timing mark is off. does your engine have the right plugs installed? your plug wires follow the correct firing order with your dist? you did not mention anything about your ignition coil. here is how to safely remove and check your ignition coil. disconnect battery-at the coil disconnect the lead wire (TOP) and primary (BOTTOM) from the coil. label your wires, or take a pic of your ign coil before you remove it so if you forget where the wires go, you have reference point. remove mounting screws and remove coil. clean coil to remove rust/dirt and wipe coil terminals off. inspect case for damage. with a multi-meter, check coil primary resistance by selecting ohm's and then place + and - leads on the pos/neg terminals on the coil, dodge used 2 brands of coils either a "diamond" or a "denso" primary resistance for the diamond mfr'd coil will be between 0.97-1.18 ohms. secondary resistance 11,300-15,300 ohms. Denso primary resistance 0.95-1.20 secondary resistance of 11,300-13,300 ohms. to measure secondary resistance place one of the leads to one the primary terminals and the other lead attatch to the large center terminal. compare your readings to the above values. if your readings are not within range of the above values, your problem is the ignition coil. other causes you may consider is faulty: speed sensor, throttle pos sensor/trans issues like bad pressure solenoid (actuates gear changes) a fault in your overdrive system. hope i have helped!

Have you checked your camshaft sensor? It's possible that the vane on the Synchronizer is misaligned.

make sure you put the right plugs in the fault is most likely the coil pack follow the plug leads from the spark plugs and you will reach the coil pack about £60

2000 ford tarus miss firing at idel


The vehicle is nearly 16 years old now, so it is quite likely overdue for a major tune-up (including plugs, wires, and coil packs).
Beyond that, verify adequate pressure at the fuel rail, and replace the fuel pressure regulator and/or fuel pump as required. If fuel pressure is adequate at all load ranges, suspect fuel contamination (especially if you have been using ethanol blend fuels over the past few years). Replace all fuel in the vehicle with fresh in this case, and that should solve your problem.

I have 2000 ford expedition and last few weeks its been making a whistling noise when accelerate, then past few days it's been running rough, idel low and shakes a bit then today check engine ligh


You might check the pulleys that the serpentine belt runs on. Make sure all are free wheeling and not loose or rough or make noise. You would need to remove the belt to check them.

No heat in my 2002 ford taurus. Replaced heater core 3 years ago, replaced termastat and flushed radiator today. Could the switch be bad that I use to go from hot to cold??


It could be the switch, or the actuator that opens the climate control blend doors. The 02 Taurus had problems with this part. A new remodeled part is now available from Ford.
Part# 3F1Z-19D842-AA I hope this helps.

2002 taurus chirps and as it gets louder the engine will die sometimes. Changed pulleys-not the problem. Cam synchronizer maybe? There are no check engine light coming on as it chirps. Help!!!!


The cam syncro will cause that noise . Listen for the noise near the back of the intake . I have replaced alot of them after someone else replaced the belt and pulleys for the noise. Good luck.

Missing


Sounds like a load miss. Chk plug wires for deterioration and or cross firing. Wires should not cross over each other. Worn plugs load wires causing increase spark out put increasing cross firing potential

Check your Oxygen Sensor. You are probally running to too rich. Might need new O2 sensors. There usually are more than one. (Oxygen Sensors).
