Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

Ford Taurus 1999 "Service Engine Soon" Light ON

Took my car (Ford Taurus 1999 sedan) to the garage to check the "Service Engine Soon" light. The mechanics performed the scan with the computer, and found nothing. They charged $80, and asked to bring the car in again tomorrow for further diagnosis. Should I bring the car in again or forget about it - since, according to the manual, it is ''not a towable problem". The car is running fine.

1999 Ford Taurus se, the car was running fine yesterday but after idling in the closed garage for about a minute it started to sputter with a almost sulfur odor and the service engine soon light came on...

Go to an Autozone, Oreily, or Advance auto parts store. They will scan you car for free and can reveal the Code and possible fix.

Possibly the air sensors went out of balance when there was no fresh air. Sounds like sensors read the engine as "Lean" due to lack of Oxygen and set engine to a rich setting.
