P0420 and P0430 are catalytic converter codes indicating that the converter isn't working properly. Temp gauge fluctuating can be caused by a bad thermostat, bad temp sensor, bad wiring harness to the sensor. Also check for air in the cooling system.

2005 Ford Taurus SE 3.0L V6 OBD Codes P0171 and P0174


The P0420 code is a Catalytic converter efficiency code check the compression.Swap the #1 injector to a different location to see if the code follows.Test the coilpak. A cracked exhaust manifold is the most likely cause p0171 and 0174 Induction air leaks, vacuum or some kind fuel restriction, weak fuel pump, restricted fuel filter etc.You also could have an exhaust leak near the upstream o2 sensor. If youtake it in they will probably use smoke to find out where the leak is.

Hey Dan, It cannot hurt to change the Plugs and wires. Make sure and Check all the Fuses and Relays also. Sometimes the Realays can blow or just get old and send a Code also.

99 Ford Taurus service engine light flashing


That sounds like a good start. Especially if they are old plugs and wires. But the best to do is go to your local auto parts store and see if they will plug it into an obdII code reader to see if the car shows any codes.

You can always just try plugs and wires first if you want.
