Question about Ford Taurus
It is your ECM. The ECM controls everything that you are talking about. If it was just not starting right away, I would say that it was the fuel pressure regulator. And still could be. The fuel pressure regulator has a check valve in it. When the vehicle sits for a long time the fuel pressure regulator could be bleeding off pressure. That is why it would start faster if you let the fuel pump run for a short time before starting. But if the ECM is bad then that would cause the gauges to go crazy. And the ECM is what tells the fuel pump that there is enough pressure. So I would suggest a fuel pressure regulator first. Since it is a lot cheaper. But it is one of those two.
