    I really doubt this is related, do u have a check engine light flashing

  • honeybob May 26, 2010

    No.

    After I use up a few gallons of gas the problems goes away. For now I've been filling the gas tank 3/4 full, and i don't have any problems.

    WHAT U ARE FELLING IS NOT A MISFIRE OR YOU WOULD HAVE A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHING AT U IN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER, TRUST ME ON THIS

    Maybe I used the wrong terminology when I said the car backfired. It feels like the car engine shuts off for a split second and the car starts to buck.

I am told that the gas tank has a problem with the relief tube. You may be filling the car up too much and causing pressure to build up due to the plugged relief. Try to run the car without topping it off. Just fill it untils it clicks the pump off the first time. Take your car in to have the overflow removed.

P1319 on extremely low tank

p2097

- Exhaust leak near O2 sensor

- Faulty O2 sensor

- Fuel contamination





based on these two codes it sounds like you have crap in your gas tank, especially water. Get two bottles of dry gas WITH fuelnjector cleaner. Add both bottles at the same time then fill the tank with PREMIUM ( not regular ) gas. MAKE SURE it is a good quality gas at a SUNOCO, MOBIL, etc station; not elcheapo.



If this doesn\'t clear it take it to a dealer.

Sounds like there might have been some dirt or sludge in the bottom of the tank that got sucked into the fuel system. First run some fuel system cleaner through it. If that doesn't work change the fuel filter.

1999 Taurus has been sitting 4 years, bad gas clogged fuel filter


1.) Change the fuel filter.
2.) remove all old gas (should actually drop the tank)
3.) run injector cleaner get kit to do this from fuel rail as this is probably cover in gunk


You may also have a screen or filter in the gas tank itself that can get clogged. Get rid of as much bad gas as possible. Like I said above it is recommended that you drop your gas tank but if you don't want to make sure to get all old gas out of tank and at the very least put a good amount of stabil in the tank fill with gas do the fuel rail injector cleaner they sell these kits at auto part stores. Hope for the best.

Let me know how it goes.
