Question about 2000 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Taurus 6 cylinder. The "engine" and "open door" warning lights on the dashboard come on while driving, sometimes they flash on/off at about once every second or two, and sometimes they remain on. Can you tell me what that indicates? Thanks, Charlie

Without error code it is hard to tell what the actual problem is? So, get your ride check for error code, any auto shop will do this free of cost. After getting error code, update your answer so that you can get the correct solution. Also you mentioned that Engine cylinder 6 is skipping strokes; the reason for the cause can be:

1. Faulty Spark Plugs

2. Damaged plug wiring

3. Faulty Distributor

4. Damaged Ignition coil

When driving sometimes it studders when you push the gas

Sounds like a misfire..either maybe a bad coil..or a simple tune up wires and plugs..If it feels like a ""fish bite"" when accelerating slowly up a hill..then its usually in the ignition system..Also look for codes..Is the engine light on or flashing..that indicates which cylinder

2000 taurus left turn signal flashes rapidly and the left rear turn signal lamp does not work. Does ford have burned out bulb sense circuit that would give this indication? The right side flashes normally.

Yes - the fast flashing is a warning that a bulb is burned out. Change the bulb (be careful to put it in the same as the old one as it probably is 2 bulbs in one , parking and turn/stop) and you should be fine.

2000 Ford Taurus 6 cylinder with the alternate

i would check the fuel injector o # 5 cyl... if the injector is leaking it will foul the plug out and cause a skip. the next time it happens remove the plug and check for wetness. you may also be able to put a fuel pressure tester on, if so install the tester, turn the key on 2 or 3 times leaving the key in the on position at the end, do not crank the engine, watch the tester for a minute or so and watch for a pressure drop.

Sounds like the keyless entry system is on the fritz. You will probably have to get a new brain for the keyless entry system.
