Question about 1994 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Hi I have a 1994 Ford Taurus, automatic trans. For the last couple weeks, I have been bothered by this sudden bucking & jerking the car does while I'm driving, it feels as though someone hit the brakes and then let go, what can this be...I just had an oil change, but the spark plugs havent been replaced in probably 8 mos to a year Thanks

Spark plugs last 50,000 miles,two to four years.
The oil has nothing to do with a drivability issue.

Disconnect the vacuum hoses to the EGR Valve and plug them. You will get a MIL Light or wrench on dash, ignore it and see if the problem goes away. If it does,replace the EGR Valve.

2000 Ford Taurus. Would fill up with gas when close to empty or light come on. Then a couple weeks ago,gas gauge was on 1/4 tank then went a little lower and engine started bucking. Then light came on. ...


change the fuel filter for one, this is telling you that your pick up in the tank is getting clogged, I would drop my tank, and drain it, flush it, and check the pump at that time

MY CAR STARTED JERKING AND SPUTTERING..I TOOK IT TO AUTZONE AND PUT IT ON THE DIAGNOSIS ANALYZER AND IT REPORTED BACK TRANS SLIPPAGE OR FLUID..WELL , I CHECKED THE FLUID AND IT WAS PERFECT AND IT ALWAYS...


When was the last time trans fluid & filter were changed? It should be changed every 50k, sooner if you pull a trailer. I would change trans fluid & filter, if filter is clogging up the jerking was an early warning. If left, it will turn into a REALLY BIG problem $$$ wise.

I have 1996 ford taurus the transmission has lost drive and over drive .i have chaged the filter and it was working fine for about a week


Fluid and filter changes,have no roll whatsoever, on the diagnosing or repair of an automatic trans.

Pull the unit and have it rebuilt.
Your not getting back,two shift stratagies,any other way.

Oil leak about the size of a quarter on ground -


Check around your rocker cobver and around the engine for oil leaking down over. it is possible that its just oil sat in the catch tray under the car leaking now and then. I would expect after 2-3 weeks though that all this would be gone.

I always pressure wash the oil leaked area and then when it starts again you have a better idea where it came from.
