Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
My car does not like the heat either. It acts like it is having a problem with one of the relays. I systematically started swapping them out from the fuel pump to the PCM Relay. Each time I changed it out the car acted fine and started. I drove it around the block and it ran fine. After 5 minutes I tried to restart the car and same problem, turns over but no fire. Now here is the kicker, just a few minutes ago I was sitting here thinking about the problem and how after each time I swapped a relay the car started. I went outside and sure enough, the car didn't start. I popped the hood and simply pulled a relay and re-installed it. Of course, the car started normal.
If anyone has a clue to what is going on with this car, please let me know.
Pulling the starter relay shouldnt affect the ecu not the bcu so i assume that maybe oxidation on the relay? i have never seen a problem like this
