I have a 2015ford Taurus. the gas gauge and miles to empty moves on its own. I filled it up this morning and 30 minutes later it only had 3/4 tank and the miles to empty had fallen.


The sending unit on the fuel pump is bad. It sends a signal to the gage to tell the fuel level. The reason the mileage is moving is because the sending unit is miss reading the fuel level. The sending unit for the fuel level is in the fuel tank.

2004 ford taurus occasionaly wont start right up.


Can you tell me if it was in fact the starter? I have an 04 Ford Taurus with 99K miles on it. This week when I started it up, not everytime but often the abs, brake, tire and traction control lights will stay on. Also the computer display will read either park brake engaged or passenger door ajar. I turn it off and start it again and the issue goes away. This morning it acted as though it had a dead battery and I had the clicking sound behind the dash as well as the vibrating needles. Thanks!

Your tank is 19 gallons and you get about 18 miles combined miles per gallon. Thats city and highway. Highway is around 21 and city is about 16.

My gas gauge needle won't move after i filled it up


for some reason and I don't know why the sending unit is sticking in the gas tank the only thing I can recommend to try is to go to Walmart and get a bottle of STP gas treatment also read on the bottle to make sure this is the kind that has a lubricant in it for the fuel pump try this first before any major repairs are made because the button could also be sticking on the sensor to let you know how many miles to empty

1997 Ford Taurus reading code P0761


The reason your gas milage went down is because you are not going into 4th gear or overdrive the most likely problem is shift solenoid 3 but it could be a wiring or pcm concern.I would test ss3 and go from there.Canging of SS3 is fairly involved and you would need a decent mechanical ability to perform this task.
