I have a 2000 Ford Taurus with the duratec v-6 engine. It has 131k miles on it. I keep getting 3 codes for either the mass airflow sensor, fuel injector or the oxygen sensors. I have replaced the mass airflow sensor before witht he same code readings and it didn't solve the problem. The car stalls out after about a minute of idling. If it is the sensor which one will it be? How do I find out exactly what is the problem?


Check all codes with code reader. Recorde codes then clear codes. Roadtest to see which codes are hard codes. If all codes remain constant, I suggest you do a fuel pressure test. Pressure on injection system should run 45-55 psi. If o/k check fuel fi ... 2000 Ford Taurus

I have a customers 2002 Ford Taurus that has a problem with very little heat to the interior. We tried simple fixes like a new thermostat and also found the cabin filter plugged. I now have good airflow but still the heater won't put out air over 100 degrees. Both heater hoses are good and hot and I found there is a bypass line above the heater hoses, tried clamping it closed to ensure all heat went to the heater, it got up to about 120 at the heater core but the temp dropped as soon as I tur

We have a 1999 Ford Taurus with about 67,000 miles. Recently, we've had problems starting it. After we drive it for awhile, turn it off, and then try to restart it after about 15-20 minutes, it cranks up, but doesn't turn over. We have to wait awhile (maybe an hour minimum) and then it starts. Of course, nothing registers on my mechanic's computer and he can't replicate the problem at his shop. He did experience something similar with a 2000 Taurus, so he replaced the PCM relays. Unfortunately,

I just had to buy a new battery for my 1993 Ford Taurus. My last battery wasn't even a year old, I got it after Christmas '07. This battery is not even 3 weeks old, and my car is dead.

I can not afford to bring my car to a garage to have it fixed. So a friend will do the work. I just need to know if this may be the problem? patche

I have mazda 323f 1.3 petrol engine 2001 model(UK). It seems to be misfiring and is very sluggish uphill. I have replaced the spark plug leads but this has not cured the problem. You can feel the car is juddering at low revs and the rev counter keeps moving up and down on idle. Somebody suggested replacing the air flow sensor. The problem seems to be confined to one particular cylinder. If the airflow sensor was faulty, would the problem be isolated to one particular cylinder? The air flow senso

My daughters 2005 Ford Taurus went dead after leaving her lights on accidently after only 10 minutes. Someone jumped her and all was well.

Ford Taurus SE 1999. Dome Light - Door Ajar indicator problem. This is an intermittent problem, hence far more difficult to isolate. OK. I will be thorough in describing this "set of problems" as I do not know if they are related or not. About 2 years ago the "Low Coolant" light came on. It never went off. Whether coolant level is low or not, the light stays on. (no biggie, just irritating) Then the seat belt unfastened indicator light malfunctioned. It comes on when you start the vehicle an

I have a 1999 taurus with a boil over problem. I changed the expantion tank and cap (twice). The gauge never shows a problem, it stays in the normal range. It boils out the cap after a few minutes driving. I took the cap off the expantion tank and started with a cool motor. The temp. of the coolant at idle was about 160 degrees. I took the RPM's up and it went up to about 180 degrees. No problem until I took my foot off the gas and coolant came shooting out of the tank. Is that normal?
