Question about 2004 Ford Taurus

Open Question

2004 Taurus jerks when I take off at a red light. If I put the car in park and then into drive to go it does not ****. It acts like it just can hardly engage in the gear it needs to get into to go after stopping at the light. Thanks

SOURCE: 2004 Volvo S60 gets stuck

Must be the same as my 2005 V70. Do the brake lights function? If not it's probably a microswitch and /or solenoid needs changing somewhere gearshift mechanism. Mine let me downn yesterday but everything points to this.

SOURCE: 2000 ford taurus- wont shift into gear

first check drive axels , since you replaced front springs on struts i assume. it is possible that one of the axels popped out. next if thats ok check fluid level in trans with eng OFF should show over full make a srcribe mark on the stick. then START the eng it should go down to full or just below depends if trans is full or a little low . if level does not drop approx.1/2 in or so then have a transmission shop check for bad splines in torque convertor, that is a comon problem in that car, year and milage do not play a roll a large roll in parts failure in trans any more. not like it use-to.

SOURCE: Honda 2004 transmission gear box

Hi sounds like a problem I was starting to have in my 04 Accord. It would shutter terribly between gears. We had changed trans. fluid every 60k miles but evidently that wasn't good enough. I was shopping for a trans when I talked to my mechanic and he recommended new fluid. We drained and refilled trans twice and now drain and refill trans pan every other oil change ( about 20k w/ synthetic). After the fluid change trans. is doin great. Don't run and go pay for a trans flush at a local shop. I worked at a very highend dealership as a service writer and trust me it is a rip. In your honda you have drain plug just drain and refill, then run, repeat. It will do the same thing just takes a little longer. I have 190k on "The 04" now and it just won't quit! Honda's Rock!

Best have the ct converter checked as they are prone to cracking and blocking up the exhaust pipe. Hit with the heel of your hand and if it rattles. it is a goog indication that it is broken

I would check the transmission fluid. It may need changed and the filter changed. Perhaps you are not getting a good spark from your spark plugs or coils. Has it been awhile since you had a tune up?

Sounds like a bad PCV valve or bad EGR valve. replace the PCV valve ( about $10) locate and watch the EGR valve .. it should move up and down when you rev the engine.. spray the shaft with WD40 if its sluggish or stuck.. it may help.

Jerks and shakes from time its cranked. can drive it but still jerks, doesnt want to take in gas when speeding up, some back firing when giving it gas. engine light flashes red until letting off the gas...


Sounds like a fuel injector is clogged up or is not firing due to the computer not firing it. Check by putting a noid light on each injector and checking for pulse by viewing a blinking light from it. Also, one can check to see if a stethoscope can be used to listen for a clicking from the injector indicating it's at least pulsing that way.

2005 ford taurus se has the emissions light on and in nov 2008 when this light came on and my car completely died after turning the air on I had to have the a/c compressor fixed, the alternator, serpintine...


Well let me tell you this.

2 days ago my a/c didn't put out cold air. It worked the next morning & evening and this morning and almost all the way home tonight.

My 2005 Tarus just did the same thing tonight, emissions light came on while I was going about 80mph. I got over to the right lane and slowed down to 60 and made it off the highway.

As I proceeded home it was acting like it would stall at the red lights but didn't, until I pulled into the driveway (lucky day?).

Bottom line is my emissions light is on and the car won't start.

I will update you asap., on my repair when i take it in tommorrow.
