That's impressive to have that many miles and not have a leakage issue.
If the check engine light is on there may be a known code stored in the OBD-II compliant computer. Hook a scanner to it and get the data on the error encountered.

I'm not sure what **** means. lol.

I would go from the scanner to diagnosis, to repair of the problem.

Hi all...I was stuck in a horrible traffic jam 4 2 which 1 1/2 hrs were less than 5 mph. My truck is a 2003 Ford Escape. My radio went out then the lights started 2 dim and a brake light came...

I suppose its possible the alternator stopped charging the battery enough at the low engine speed but then worked on the way home.
The alternator will charge 12 - 13 volts at idle, but you could have enough accessories and the cooling fan running to use more voltage or amps than it is producing. Stopping at a traffic light for a couple of minutes does not hurt anything since the battery is usually fully charged. But idling for an hour or more with everything on could run the battery down.
You might want to have the computer checked for codes even tho the check engine light may not have been on. Also have the alternator and battery tested again to see if something happened while in heavy traffic.

My 2000 ford taurus seems to be misfiring while idling at traffic lights or sitting in traffic and engine light is flashing while this is happening. when i pull away from the light the engine sounds...

May be a coil pack if you say it starts when it gets warm..But check make sure the plugs and wires are good as well..If the engine light is flashing,,you need to have it fix as soon as possible..When its flashing ,,that means that its doing damage to the catalytic converter..If you wait to long you will have to replace that as well...they are very expensive..

Everytime i excellerate my car is starts to ****. a couple times while sitting at the stop light it has even turned off! whats going on??

Have the mass airflow sensor checked, and have injector resistance checked. If one injector has lower resistance, even 1 ohm, it will **** all of the power when you accelerate, and the other 5 injectors will not operate. When you let off, it the engine will idle again.
