If it's not the fuse or relay, look at the fuel filter.

Have a 05 ford Taurus when you first start it the engine runs too fast and going down the road the gas pedal sticks

I would think the throttle body is getting gummy. You need some carb cleaner to spray it and sometimes you ever have to physically clean it.

Yesterday I was leaving work and my van started running rough and it smells like gas. It was not shutting off just runs and idols rough. It was fine this morning when I took the kids to school then started...

Sounds like it could be a gasket leak, or a fuel line leak. Here's why; when the motor gets hot things expand/swell, with it acting up in the afternoon only i think it could be due to more heat causing expansion as compared to when it is cold. I would check for leaks first due to such an intense aroma of gas. Then i would look for gasket leaks around the throttle body which can be checked by spraying starting fluid around the throttle bottle and taking notice if there is any performance/idle change. IF so there is a leak, try to pin point it if possible. Most likely though i would say a fuel leak of some sort so look for a puddle of gas or wetness in the engine compartment around the intake manifold.

3100 sfi v6 idleing to high

This can be pretty easy to fix. Spray the engine seams on the intake manifold with water from a spray bottle while the engine is running. If you have a manifold leak, the engine RPM will drop or the engine will stall when you find the air leak.

Think of this as having the throttle open. When you press down on the throttle, you give the engine more gas and more air. An air leak on the motor will also let it speed up without your foot being on the gas pedal.

If you find no leaks, check the fuel pressure. There can be a fuel pressure regulator problem if it no longer restricts the flow of fuel.

Another part called a throttle position sensor can cause problems if it is shorted and fails to regulate the throttle.

My truck was running just fine then all of a sudden wouldnt start.. its acting like its not getting gas but its turning over, just not starting.. sounds like a fuel pump?

change the filter first,, if that doesn't work, then spray some carb cleaner into the intake, ( or throttle body , and turn it over, if it runs as long as you spray ( don't use to much) then its probably going to be your fuel pump

Driving the car and it died going down the road.. i think it might be my fuel pump, but im not sure

Could be a distributor problem; see video above.

The fuel pump should humm for a few seconds when you turn the key to the run position. You can remove the gas cap and listen for the fuel pump to run while someone else turns the key.

If your timing belt breaks then your engine will stop running.

The Master relay has a habit of going bad due to poorly soldered connections.

When pressing on the gas pedal the car feels like it wants to slow down, in fact it does then picks back up speed, expecially when going up any hill, also will start it and it will stop running on its own...

This can be caused by deposits on the back of the engine intake valves and dirty fuel injectors, another culprit is the throttle valve being sludged up. I suggest you try cleaning the throttle valve and idle speed control valve by following the instructions below. If this fails to help then you should get the fuel injectors professionally cleaned (not the junk you put in the fuel tank, a waste of money).

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2000 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

Engin stops sometimes when I slow down, usely starts back up and run fine. Now I am at home it starts then stops, now it turns over but will not start and run.

it has a dirty throttle body. get some carb cleaner and a tooth brush.remove air cleaner hose at the throttle body. block open throttle to wide open {engine off of course} or have someone hold it to the floor.spray cleaner into body and scub with tooth brush especially were the throttle plat touches the bore when at idle and the throttle plate itself.spray brush,spray,brush. put hose back on and start engine. you might have to give it some gas to atart it then its going to run rough for a few seconds but it will clear up.slowly lower foot from gas pedal and allow to idle.put in reverse let run in reverse for a few seconda do the same with has now began to learn what position the stepper motor should be in when throttle is not may stumble a couple of times at sops but will soon correct itself
