Question about 1993 Dodge Shadow

1 Answer

Starting issue with 2005 ford taurus

Car starts but occasionally it tends to give me trouble by just turning over and not starting. I then wait a second and I try again, it turns over consistenly without slowing down and this time i press the gas pedal once and it starts. Car has 38000 miles on it and i just changed the fuel filter. Could it be a sign that the battery is about to die? or just a loose cable? i need suggestions, thanks!

It sounds like to me that you mite have a bad fuel injector.... try running motor and 1 by 1 unplug each injector harness pluging it back in after each check.. no more than 1 off at a time a good injector slows the motor noticably.. a bad one when un plugged chanes nothing at all..hope this helps

Car occasionally will not start or turn over

Could be. Could be a bad starter also. Find the starter. Next time it happens, hit the starter with something hard(hammer/rod) as someone tries to start it. If it starts up, replace the starter.

1995 Ford Taurus not starting. Sometimes it starts and sometimes the starter won't turn over not even a click. Wait half an hour and it may work fine. Starter less than a year old as is the battery

Even though new-ish, I'd still suspect the battery has no charge, ask a friend to give you a jump start. Then give your car a good run, 20 miles, if is doesn't work again the next day either the battery fails to keep its charge or the alternater isn't charging it. A good garage will be able to test either for you, you'll need to change the failing part.

2005 Taurus Check Brake System Flashes Then Car Dies

I won't go into a long technical explanation of how todays high tech vehicles work.
You want to know what to do.

You can not fix this yourself. Period.

You need to take the Taurus to a repair shop. You do not need to go to the dealer

They will charge you a diagnostic fee to scan your vehicle,then quote a price to repair
