My 2000 ford taurus is bucking when taking off"


Check engine timing of cam and crankshaft, inspect your timing belt. check to see if your fuel system is faulty. Check for a clogged fuel filter, or if your fuel pump don't run at all, replace the "fuel pump relay". Sometimes your fuel pump will run, but be too weak to hold pressure, which will let your car idle somewhat, but be too weak to run the engine at speed or under load.

Having codes P0306 and P0316 show up for 2005 Ford Taurus


Well code 306 is for a miss on cylinder six and code 316 is for a miss detected on startup, which you probably already know.
Since I assume you have replaced the ignition parts for that cylinder,
the next component to check is the injector. You may want to check fuel pressure too.

We have codes P0171, P0191, P0174, P2198. The car is sluggish on acceleration and the engine will sometimes die. Sometimes runs fine and then it will have a gallop during acceleration. Cleared check...


I would start by looking for a broken vacuum hoses. That would cause 2 of the codes. The other 2198 is stating that the o2 is stuck rich. Look for the vacuum leak and let me know when you have that or if you do not find one.

IF IT ALWAYS STARTS FINE AFTER IT'S BEEN RUNNING THEN YOU NEED TO HAVE THE BATTERY TESTED,TRY TO START IT WITH BOOSTER CABLES TO CONFIRM.

Runs rough on startup


Run in to autozone, pep boys, or other major autoparts store & they will usually do a free code scan for you. Once you know code, easier & better/cheaper to fix, than guessing & replacing parts that are fine.
