Sounds like a catalytic converter needs to be checked out. How many miles on the engine?

2003 ford taurus emission system light is on


By "Emission Light", I assume you mean the "Check Engine" or "Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)? Well, to get a clue to what you are asking, please review the following article:

When i come to a stop like at a light or something the car jerks even with foot on brake.


When you say the car jerks even with the footbrake on dose the car try to drive as well or just the engine **** as if its trying to drive when jerks then its the bands and or oil problem in the box as this is the convertor not braking free when down on 5 to 650 RPM.
GET IT CHECKED OUT AT YOUR AUTO BOX PLACE IT WILL ONLY TAKE 1/2 HR AND THE COST OF A NEW G/BOX IS A LOT OF MONEY.
HAVE A GOODDAY.

I assume you are saying you have a check engine light illuminated.

Most auto parts stores will read the OBD II code(s) for check engine lights at no charge. The codes they read will give you an idea of what the problem is.

Most cars rev on idle at around about 600 RPM and
750RPM and thats when you stop it stays at that rpm rate But if as you say yours trys to move then your problem is trying to still drive and not brake contact as what happens when you get at a stop lights etc the gear box should brake band stop which is like running free or in a manaul pushing in the clutch so your problem is in the GEARBOX..
