Had the same problem with a Ford Ranger 4 cylinder. It turned out being a blown head gasket between 3rd and 4th cylinder. Compression was blowing from one cylinder to the other. Some times it ran great then others it couldn't pull it's self.

Sounds like the fuel filter needs changed. Depending on your crab It is between the pump and carb, or in the carb where the fuel line goes in.

You need to have the Idle air controller cleaned or replaced, and the throttle position sensor checked or replaced-and while you are at it, have the throttle body cleaned. Since she is going to be driving it, you should consider doing a tuneup (plugs, air filter, fuel filter, plug wires or have COP's checked for oil in the bottom of the plug holes)-an oil change, and checking the brake linings, antifreeze and cooling system maintenance.

Drastic change in rpm on incline and dies while coasting


one of the things your car is famous for is bad fuel pumps ... if you frequently drive on a nearly empty tank then suspect that fuel pump .. they have a plastic impeller that depends on a continuous flow of fuel to keep cool .. if you are low on gas then it might capture some air as you go around corners or up a hill .. when that happens the impeller overheats and then you have problems until its replaced ..(not an easy job) ... you can have the fuel pump tested for voume and pressure .. if you never let the car get low on gas then that may not be the problem .. yoiu should also check or change the fuel filter ..

I have a 96 for taurus. While driving it starts


This is a good indication that the catalytic converter is bad.  Other symptoms include a smelly sulphur like exhaust, a lot of heat coming from the exhaust (in the middle of the car), a lot of smoke from the exhaust.

Poor gas mileage on 2008 Ford taurus


Are you using the correct grade of fuel.
Manufacturers claim that a car will do 28 to the gallon.
This is done under ideal conditions at a constant speed on a rolling road.
Wind, hills, overtaking and tire pressures will decrease fuel mileage.
Your car is ok. Don`t expect much more unless you want to drive at 56mph
good luck

Car won't start


try this, if the car wont start push the pedal all the way to the floor and hold it ther while you crank. It sounds like you are flooding the car some how. Pushing the pedal to the floor puts the car into clear flood mode and it shuts off the fuel flow. try and see just a suggestion

When i crank my 96 taurus sometimes it floods out and wont crank.


Too much gas won't make it hard to crank. To thick oil or not enough antifreeze will. If it's flooding, slowly pump the gas pedal to the floor 3 times and then with the pedal held tight against the floor, crank the engine. This will open the butterfly wide open and will blow the extra gas out.
