Question about 1995 Ford Taurus

1995 Ford Taurus stalled and won't start up again

Hi..I have 1995 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 V6 with 135K miles with remote start. Started car last night with remote starter and it idled normally for a few minutes. I backed up about 6 feet to get out of spot and as soon as I applied brakes, it stalled out which this car has NEVER done before. I tried to restart. The starter was cranking nicely, but the engine didn't show any signs of wanting to start-it was pure starter-no "almost catching" signs. I checked for codes on ODB and I got code 211 from computer memory which I found out indicates "2 or more successive Profile Ignition Pickup (PIP) pulses occurred, resulting in a possible engine miss or stall". Now, I don't know if that refers to something as recent as my stall last night but that code is not more than 3 months old as I had gone through codes that long ago and it was not present. Car is otherwise in excellent running condition and well maintained. Please advise on any possible causes to the stalling. Thanks.....

Your issue is your cylinder head is dead, and most likely has caused damage to the piston on the dead cylinder. A compression test will show you have a dead cylinder. You should have no less than 100 psi compression on any cylinder. I have personally seen this issue on escorts over 50 times.

Will it stall if you keep your foot on the gas like the Idle speed is set low? Possible Idle speed motor? I'll have to look up the location of the low coolant sensor.

SOURCE: 05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it

okay try to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

SOURCE: Taurus stalls while slowing down (low RPM)

Most likely Idle air control valve fault. Usually wont set a code unless it has a short or unplugged. There are some test that can be performed with a high end scanner but with out the data not much you can do.

On one of the occasions when it won't start back up, someone will need to figure out if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to be able to troubleshoot the problem.

My 1995 Taurus stalled yesterday while I was driving. It has not started again. It turns over, but won't start.

Well we find out is it an electrical or fuel related problem. Spay some starting fluid in the breather or throttle body for 3 seconds.. if it starts and go dead it is fuel related. and the fuel pump needs to be replaced. If not it is electrical and we will need to do some more testing
