1991 Ford taurus starts when its cold then once it gets warm and you shut it off it wont start until it cools off again


Did you replace the ignition distributor stator? they are the real problem not the TFI ignition module. See part below. You must remove the distributor to replace this part, it would also be a good idea to run a fault code test on the EEC 4 engine control system.

2001 ford taurus will not start after engine warms up. after cools down starts up fine??


Possible fuel pump. This is normal when a pump is starting to go on its way out! Once it is hot and the vehicle stalls out, push on the valve in the fuel rail to see if any fuel comes out. Looks like a tire valve in the engine bay. Be careful here as if it is good, there will be pressure there. Wear goggles when doing this!

2003 Ford Taurus will periodically die while driving ! All warning lights will come on and engine will die. It will start again immediately after I put it in 'Park' and I can resume driving


This sounds like a bad connection, the problem is where, i have seen the wiring harness that goes over the transmission rub into wiring and cause engine to shut down and then restart again and run until the right movement is made to shut down again.

Try starting the car and do the wiggle test, start grabing wiring and moving around and see if engine dies out.

Ford Taurus runs great till it warms up then shuts off and won't restart this is a 1995 taurus


A mechanic would check for voltage at the coil and the ignition module next.
Any trouble codes stored in the ECM ?

My 97 Ford Taurus 3.0L V-6 idles ruff when warm, and will sometimes die. You can start it and go and it does fine until you shut the car off. When you restart, before the car cools down, it doesn't want to...


Yes and the way it runs.
Disconnect and plug the vacuum lines to the EGR, and see if you still have idle and driveability issues. If not replace the Valve.

Is there a thermostat shut off switch . car runs


The amount that it gets hot is a clue but theres no shut off switch. It's possible that the car is over heating and the temp gauge does'nt have enought water over it to report the problem. once the cooling system is cleared as it's full circulating and the fan will come on when it's hot ( disconnect the temp. switch on the therostate cover on the top of the transmission, ( the stat is in the lower hose ) with it disconnected and the key on the fan should be on and connected f till it's real hot. The crank senser or distrubutor module can can too hot and shut down too

Check fluid in transmission with the car in park AND the engine running AND the engine warmed up. Could be low fluid in the converter.

Also could be a vacuum leak. Check ALL vacuum hoses for disconnection or cracking throughout the engine compartment AND especially any going to the trqansmission.
