Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

When I come to a complete stop in my car, such as at a stop light, my car jerks forward, since my foot is on the brake it cant really do anything except **** in place. I also notice that on my RPM dial, that once the needle gets below 1, is when it tries to **** forward. I don't have the problem when my car gets going, only after it falls below the "1". I have a 2001 Ford Taurus.

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..

Sounds like an automatic transmission problem, specific the clutch. Either a rebuild or a new one. Check the fluid level and smell it to see if there is a strong odor. The collar should be cherry red. If it's brown, it's cooked.

At a stop car jerks forward with brakes applied


Are the engine rpms climbing when its jerking forward? seems like it could be a Transmission torque converter problem.

When braking the Rendezvous jerks forward just before stopping completely. This is an intermitten problem, usually when first leaving for the day. Any suggustions? Thanks


I would have a brake tech at a reliable auto center check the abs (anti-lock brake system)
Do you have any lights on in your dash with the letters abs ?
I would have this checked out now. It is not safe to drive your vehicle if there are brake problems, no matter how " intermitten"
Please let me know what you find.

if the car isnt skipping i'd say its a torque converter problem or a tcc solonoid problem in the trans. id check and make sure it isnt skipping first. it can skip at idle and you not notice it at higher rpm's

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck

Sticking gas pedal


its either the throttle cable is binding or you could just loosen the clamp off the rubber intake boot. and pull it off the intake and pull open the throttle and clean the butter fly that opens and closes and see if that helps, if its really dirty with old oil carbon build up itll feel really sticky. does this help

This might actually be a software issue in the car. It can be taken care of at the dealer with re-programming. Its best to leave it for a few days because drivability concerns such as these can be the hardest to pin point. Best of luck and please let me know if anything changes.
