Question about 2006 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

Gagues Click when car is started and Computer resets

I have a 2006 Taurus SEL with 48K, in the past few weeks it has been acting very weird. When you crank the car it is a lil sluggish, and the dashboard gauges (gas and temp) do this clicking thing and after about a min or so go to their position. Also, all the info resets itself, temp will only show 50 degress when it is 100 outside. Avg miles resets and everything else that is one there. After a few mins it will pick up and work normally. The display that shows how many miles till E is never right, I can put $20 in the tank and it shows 30 miles to E and I know that is wrong.....any input from any one would be great!!

    Ok, it is such a EASY fix.....We had a bad cells in our battery, replaced it and the car works perfect....you can go to AutoZone and have them test the battery for free. Let me know if that works!!

If you have a digital dash it could be going bad,you can repalce it with a new on or go to the dealer and they can send it out and have it repaired the other cause can be either a loose connection for your dash or a bad ground.check your battery connections as well as other grounds at the fron of the radiator support there is a bolt with little ground wires remove the bolt clean with sand paper and replace.With out being there this is a little hard to diagnose,good luck.PS has this car ever been hit in the front?

2006 ford taurus sel bogs down under acceleration, have replaced fuel filter and fuel pressure sensor


Locate the mass air flow sensor. It will be located on top of the hose coming from your air filter. Walmart sells the cleaner. You could go to Autozone (if check engine light is on) to see if the code is indicating such. Watch this video carefully and follow the instructions. This fixed my daughter's Corolla and should be cleaned periodically.

2006 ford taurus sel ++ rough idle tack runs high as well. what should the tacometer read at idle speed?


If the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any faulty codes that it has stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. It sounds like a faulty idle air control valve, but getting the codes will identify what faults the computer has noted and in what systems. Hope this helped and best wishes.
