Question about Ford Taurus
If the new wires and plugs did'nt seem to change the problem at all, the problem can still be in the ingtion system.The coil can be breaking down, or the plugs can be the wrong ones. Lets say all this is alright. The fuel filter can be resisting flow and there also can be some water trapped in it too.Their less than $10 and should be changed about once a year. You did'nt say which engine you have as the dual overhead cam 3 liter has a coil for every plug. You may find a cyclinder down by proping open the throttle a little with it running to get a fast idel and pull one pug wire at the coil one at a time to see it spark and to see if the engine drops off some as the wire stops making connection. then if the coils not riring changer the coil and if the egines doesn;t drop off on one or even two cyclinders and the spark is good your on to those cyclinders for injector or compression problems. Test the cyclinders that don't respond with a compression gauge, and some good ones too. Should be over 100 Lbs. and about the same 150 is normal. If you get this far a gouge can be gotton at a discount auto parts store and may save you all the money it costs the first time you use it. Fuel pressure as the pump is bad. Again if you don't own a gauge, buy one or decide to have this work done for you.
