Engine Mechanical problem
1992 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles
Hi. 1992 Taurus with 3.0L V6 / automatic. This taurus is running fine. Except that after it warms up (it does not overheat, and coolant system working fine), the car will just die. My father in law (a seasoned mechanic) says these ford engines will "Vapor lock" because the fuel line is close to the engine and does not transfer off the heat in the fuel manifold. We wrapped it in foil, making a heat sink of it. But the problem still exists. Car will run for a period, then abruptly lose power and slowly die. I suspect it is the coil failing when it gets warm. It did this to me driving on the highway. On hot days, though rarely on a cold day. It seems to be getting worse. It went two blocks the other day, then died. We had to push it home. Is there another ignition module? I am fairly certain the fuel pump is fine.
have the same problem?
