WHY IS MY CAR (POSSIBLY ENGINE) RATTLING AND CEL FLASHING WHEN ACCERELATE?
2002 Ford Taurus

My 02 Ford Taurus is rattling up front when we are at a braking idle or when we accelerate over 3 rpms. We have replaced the fuel filter-very dirty- so we added STP fuel injector cleaner as recommended by another mechanic. But it is still rattling. Now the CEL flashes as we accelerate once in a blue moon. Problem has only existed for a week now. Keep in mind, we have only had the vehicle for 3 months and unsure of the maintenance kept before we got it.
