Service engine light is on and the car is rumbling

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus and the service engine light is on and the car is rumbling a bit but usually runs smoothly. It seems to be smoking alot out of the exhaust and it looks like the gas is going down faster than usual. Any suggestions?

I had a problem where a little pipe on the engine had melted (PCV valve). Check that first since it's an easy fix, even if you temporarily replace it with a regular rubber hose like I did.

1999 Ford Taurus se, the car was running fine yesterday but after idling in the closed garage for about a minute it started to sputter with a almost sulfur odor and the service engine soon light came on...


Go to an Autozone, Oreily, or Advance auto parts store. They will scan you car for free and can reveal the Code and possible fix.

Possibly the air sensors went out of balance when there was no fresh air. Sounds like sensors read the engine as "Lean" due to lack of Oxygen and set engine to a rich setting.

Want to know at what mileage one needs to replace the timing belt on a 1999 Ford


None of the engines in a Ford Taurus use a Timing Belt. They use a timing chain that should last the life of the engine. There is no service interval for a timing chain.

Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for using FixYa.com!

99 suburban runs rough throughout driving range little bit of backfire wants to die but rumbles on.


Any Service Engine light? If so, the first thing that should be done is to get whatever codes are stored. Most part stores will hook up a generic code reader for free.
Last time plugs, wires, fuel filter, etc. was done?

1999 taurus service engine lite just came on with 58,809 miles on it, what does that mean most of the time???


The service engine light could mean a lot of things. If your car is still running fine and you don't notice any problems it could be EGR system or the E VAP system, but above all it means you need to have it checked. Most auto parts stores will check them for free and give you the code number and the meaning. When you get that you should repost your question.

Light staying on


This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
