Check engine light is frequently a loose fuel cap, but the other problem could be a bad fuel pump, or a clogged fuel filter. Try the fuel filter first - its the cheapest.

My 1994 grand marquis spits & sputter when the engine is cold. Also sometimes loses power after it's left ideling too long sometime I don't have enough power to get up hills we replace the


If the check engine light is not on, I doubt there is much you can do.
It sounds like one of the engine temp sensors or one of the other sensors. The engine temp sensor and the intake air temp sensor tell the computer what the outside air temp is and the coolant temp which allows the computer to regulate the amount of fuel going thru the injectors. Generally if one of the sensors has failed the check engine light should be on.
It could be low fuel pressure too.
You may have to have a shop check the sensors with a scanner and the fuel pressure with a gauge.

My check engine light will not show up when I turn the ignition on a 2002 ford taurus 24V


you need to take apart and see if the light is burnt out. If the light is ok you may have a fuse for it. If both check out then when a check engine light does not work and the wiring is ok then the problem is in the PCM

My cars engine, battery, and oil lights are on. HELP!


well when the car shuts off or stalls your check engine , oil . battery lights are all going to come on the oil light is telling you there is no oil pressure due to the car not running the battery light is going to come on due to the alternator not pushing any juice because the car is not running and the check engine light also now. check under the car and make sure that your moter did not cut,rip or fray any wires comming from the starter area. this could be a big problem and make lights flicker and the car to run funny.
