Question about 1992 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

92 Ford Taurus runs then doesnt run

If I am on the downslope in my driveway, the car will run. It will idle, go forward and go in reverse. Once I get it up to flat land, it stalls. It turns over and all but will not continue to run.

Fuel pump? Is gravity moving fuel forward so that it runs on the slope?

2001 Ford Taurus, wont go in reverse, trans fluid is dry. No leak, just dry.

When you say dry, do you mean there is no transmission fluid showing on the dipstick? If that is the case you have probably burned the reverse out and the forwards will go out very soon. It is a total distaster to run without fluid.

1990 Ford Probe 2.2 automatic stalls in forward, reverse OK

Sounds like a bad IAC (idle air control valve/sensor) that controls your idle when going from throttle to idle. If bad your idle will act crazy and can cause stalls easily. Pretty sure that's it.
