2003 Ford Taurus bucks

I have a 2003 Taurus sel with approximately 58000 mi on it. The vehicle feels like it bucks when i am between 1500 and 2000 problems higher or lower rpms in any gear. It is only when I am trying to maintain a steady speed ( in any gear). Auto transmission, no engine lights, and only when gas is being applied, not when coasting or reducing speed.

I've got a Taurus SEL, 2003 and have a broken rubber boot on the left tie rod arm, from the steering gear, vent line was not connected and have a pulsing in front end while stopping vehicle?

The tie rod may have a loose end but the pulsing usually is from warped disc rotors. I would check out the front end checked out for safety's sake.

2003ford taurus bucks at cruising speed 30 to50

Sounds like your mass air flow sensor....or your intake air temperature sensor. Have the vehicle DTC codes checked....Youo may not have a check engine light but a fault code could be stored in the ECM computer. Most auto parts stores will check it for free.

You can't beat free!!!

My car did the same thing with no check engine light and I changed the intake air temp sensor and it fix the problem right away.

ECU compatibility

You can try to replace with a similar unit, but typically Ford ECUs have to be "reflashed" by the dealer. Ford has numerous calibration codes and various other vehicle specific information that can only be managed with Ford certified (dealer) programing devices. I hope this helps
