    Could you clarify you problem a bit better please? You let the car idle a long time, the temp gauge doesn't move, and the SES light comes on? Does the light stay on?

Why does my 2000 ford taurus idle so high when i start it


That is just the way the engine warms itself up to operating temp and gets the oil and fluids moving around to lubricate the engine.

Owner of 2004 Ford F250. Check engine light came


Check the fuel regulator at the end of the fuel rail. If if is not functioning properly it can cause the the problem that you are describing. Unfortunately other than doing an R&R with a known good regulator I do not know of a fool-proof test for this component.

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

Ford 2003 Expedition starts then shuts down


The only idea I hbave is for you to buy a OBD II sensor code reader. Know half the time the codes are generic, BUT also if you go buy a Advance auto they will read the code for you for free. And that code is the correct answer to your problem. Just make sure if your truck loses the code when you cut it off, that you don't cut it off when you get to advance auto.

first of all if you have over 60,000 miles the car is asking you for a tuneup but take it to auto zone and they will put it on the tested for free so you know what you are dealing with.

You need to change the thermostat, it must be stuck open and the computer thinks the engine is always cold, hence the fast idle and smoke.
