Understand what happens to cause vapor-lock. The temp around the motor gets hot enough to boil the fuel in the lines. The pump is likely a problem. it must exceed the 30 psi setting on the fuel rail regulator. this pushes excess gas back to the tank, and keeps the fuel lines cool enough to prevent boiling. When starting, the fuel pump should pump a little gas through the regulator back to the tank, so cool fuel is again at the rail.
Maybe this is a the problem, maybe not. Good Luck!

Remove the gas cap when it does this. If you hear a woosh sound the tank vent isn't working properly. Essentially your tank has turned into a vacuum.

Hi my 1997 ford taurus 3.0 got struck by a


Changing computer is not the only possible concern, Plus, you shouldnt just think a bone yard computer is the first answer, vehicles after 1996 are OBD 2 compliant, and MOST have VIN specific code stored, if not correct, car may never run or run correctly

Idles rough and acts like its going to die then revs up....acts like its not getting gas sometimes....when under pressure the air blows out of the defrost instead of the panel


you have a vacuum problem, I would have the intake gasket checked or you can spray carb/choke cleaner around the intake where it meets the heads and if the rpm of the motor reacts then you have a leak, my explorer was the same way, idle raised and lowered,idled rough, stalled, and my vents acting up. new intake gaskets a month ago and wham runs great. My yukon i did 2 days ago as it had the same actions and yep it runs great now. I'm sure its your intake.

Wont start


CHECK SHRADER VALVE ON FUEL RAIL FOR PRESSURE. IT IS COMMON FOR PUMP'S TO GO OUT. YOU CAN HAVE SOMEONE LISTEN TO TANK FOR A BUZZ NOISE ON KEY CYCLES OR TEST FUEL PUMP CONNECTOR HARNESS FOR POWER. TRY KEEPING AT LEAST QUARTER TANK AT ALL TIMES TO KEEP FUEL PUMP COOL,SOME PEOPLE DRIVE ON LOW AQLL TIMES AND KEEPS PUMP HOT CAUSING PREMATURE FAILURE.

Wont start


check all wires running from the batt to the starter motor. if the wires are tight and fitting quite well, its the starter itself. remove it and test for voltage and motor function at your local auto parts shop.

I have a 1996 ford taurus my car will not start in cold weather


you can jump it with a running car, then take it to somewhere like Autozone which will check the charging system and battery to see if there is a problem. Also sometimes you need to remove the battery cables and clean both them and the battery terminals.
