It sounds like the same thing that happened to my sons car. He was driving home from school and it just died on him. It acted like it wanted to start but would not. He replaced the ignition module and now it starts. He was gotting power from the coil to the distributor, but not from the distributor. Good luck

Drive 5 miles and starts up fine, drive 30 miles and wont restart


Sounds like a fuel pump overheating. Drive until it wont start then check the fuel pressure. If no gauge when it wont start try some starting fluid. You should also check your fuel pump relay.

I have a 93 taurus sho. it was running fine and now it won't start. any advice would help, also need to find where i can get a owners manual so i know what fuses go where on the fuse box.


try hitting the gas tank with a piece of wood,the fuel pump may have started going bad and by hitting it loosens up the pump so it might work a little enough to start it.Then you will know if thats the problem for sure.I had this problem on a friends 1991 SHO

the alternator may of went bad and stopped charging so the car died when the battery went dead. Charge the battery and test to start with. Are you saying wont turn over ot turns over and wont start. If it turns over and wont start then it could be several things. Will need to get it diagnosed to be sure

1995 Ford Taurus Sho 3.2 check engine light blink 3 3 1 3 3


Code 33 is EGR opening not detected, this is caused by a plugged EGR exhaust passage in the upper intake manifold, this is a common SHO engine fault, the valve works but the engine does nothing that the computer can sense, since no gas flows, to verify this is the problem open the egr at idle, the engine should almost die, if nothing happens or only a tiny change in idle speed or quality the passages are plugged, if it does stall or get real rough the egr position sensor (usual code for sensor is 32) may be faulty or the valve is sticking. I was a ford dealer tech for 30 years and did quite a few of these, there is a TSB (technical service bulletin) about this problem

Car completly shuts down and wont restart for 10 minutes


Yo, sounds like a crank position sensor to me.

The next time it happens watch the tach & see if jumps around a bit.

The CPS is directly below the water pump and is a common problem with these cars. (I have an 89 SHO as well)

The car will die and not throw a code. After a few minutes to dry up it'll start up as if nothing wrong....it can happen (shut off) anytime at any speed.

Not an easy fix...goto SHOforum and look up the 60k service how to and dig in.

good luck.

It is most likely the TFI ignition module, replace it, don't use anything but the FORD part, the aftermarket modules are very poor quality, I have done hundreds of TFI"s and know this for a fact.
