Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
Had same problem last year in my 04 Taurus with V6 12 valave Vulcan engine. Engine spins over OK, fuel is pumping (you can smell it at tail pipe) but intermientently would not start. Sometimes would start on the first try, sometimes and the 10th, etc RIght after trying to start all gauges would peg all the way to the right for 20 or 30 seconds. Took it to garage and they said I would have to wait until it totally failed, their diagnostics could not troubleshoot. Finally it totally died. Engine never turned over sluggish, always spun over nicely until it just died completely. Then I could not even get a click out of the starter. I called AAA, they showed up and immediately the guy said, bad battery. He had seen the same symptom in quite a few Taurus's. I told him that it suddenly stopped and never had symptoms of a weak battery. He replaced battery and all has been perfect since ... go figure? Almost sounds like something may have been intermienttly arching internally to the battery, creating non-DC "dirty electrical noise" and freaking out the computer. Who knows .... ?
