#2821 of 2996 2002 Ford Taurus kills upon acceleration
Mar 03, 2008 (3:14 pm)
My car killed while I was in an automatic car wash. Everytime I start it and try to accelerate, it kills! help!
We tried changing the alternator,spark plugs,fuel pump, and another sensor but nothing has worked yet. The local ford dealership said they were unsure this time but thought it maybe my computer board. Once I got my care to roll far enough to get out of the car wash, I restarted it and it would not let me accelerate,so I put the car in drive and let it roll to a safer spot. The car continued to run in park but after about 5min it started running hot and all the radiator fluid starting coming out, one of my battery post corroded, and now the battery light stays on! Tell me whats wrong?
#2822 of 2996 Taurus to be replaced AGAIN next year

The excitement surrounding the current Taurus has been underwhelming.
The current Ford Taurus, which was a refresh of the slow selling Ford Five-Hundred has failed to meet expectations. Ford addressed many of the issues the Five-Hundred had, except for the overly bland styling. The styling changes that Ford applied to the new model have not attracted the audience Ford was looking for. The new Taurus should address these issues.

Did you ever figure out what was wrong with your Taurus? This same thing just happened to me this week and I would prefer to fix it myself. Thank-you, this would really help me out!

Hi, today my odometer quit working. My speedometer and RPM are working fine. I have 109,000 miles on my car. Can someone point me in the right direction for the repair?

Does the 2008 Sable and Taurus come from the factory with synthetic oil in the crankcase?

Ford factory oil is a synthetic BLEND, also the oil used for replacement in the dealerships.

Its Motorcraft 5W-20 syn blend. Syn blend is max 30 pct syn oil, balance is standard. Likely 15 percent though no oil company advertises the percentage. Meets latest API M rating. Excellent buy DIY for around $12/5 qt container.
