    Can this be due to a key? The security light is coming on at times.

    someone told us to check the fluids, the oil was a little low. Added more oil and it is started everytime. Who knew that would cause that?! Crazy, but better than a $500 fix! Thanks for the info

    I dont know if a key would cause these problems.I would also check ground wires from battery to motor, battery to body for corossion. also check motor to frame ground. The connections can corrod underneath and cause all sorts of problems.

My 1997ford tarus will not start right away after i drive it . it has to sit a while before it will start. and sometimes when it start is act like it is going to stop

I would have the fuel pump pressure tested when it doesn't start, I will bet the fuel pump is failing. The electric pump is located inside the fuel tank.

I have a 94 f-250 xlt 5.0 liter, the transmission acts up, slamming gears and dropping out of gear while driving and all of a sudden it will drive great, shifting smooth and fine. then the next morning do...

What Transmission do you have in your truck? As for driving it and then shutting it off then restarting shortly after I would say you may be in need of a coil. (Coil works great when it's cold, Heats up and starts to fail) A faulty coil could cause some misfiring and such as well.
