Try changing the fuel filter. A clogged filter can have these symptoms you are saying.

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.

THE CAR WILL BE RUNNING FINE,THEN IT WILL SPUTTER/****,THEFT LIGHTS FLASHES,RPM HAND DROPS RETURN TO NORMAL. ONLY WILL IT STOP RUNNING IF I SLOW TO MAKE A TURN OR STOP AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT.. IT MAY DO THIS 2...


elizabethsne, my 2002 taurus just started this today! Have you gotta closer to a fix or is it still doing that?

I'm seeing folks suggesting fuel filter, tune-up, air-filter, and if that doesn't work, possibly a fuel-pump going bad..... i will probably follow that logic to start with, but will keep searching.

thanks.

Engine starts and runs for a minute or so starts to sputter then shuts off. will restart, sputtering and shuts after a few minutes. code shows iat sensor, where is it located on the 2003 ford taurus


IAT sensor is the Intake Air Sensor.. It could be temperature or amount and as the engine is stalling, I would suspect that the sensor is not measuring the amount of airflow correctly..Substitute a known good unit as these sensors are not a repairable item..

My car keeps cutting off during driving


Sounds like a problem with the ignition module. If the car runs fine for a bit then quits,,,, and if you wait a few minutes it restarts,,,, replace the module.
