Electrical problem
1994 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 87900 miles

Just a light comes on when climbing a hill.
Haven't seen a symptom other that gas pressure building up in the tank. A fizzing noise comes out when opening the cap. I hve a problem in the summer when it is very hot, here in Northern California. Symptom is like an old car with vapor lock.
I know I can't vapor lock don't have a carborator.
We think its an Ignation modual malfunctioning. Can't fine out where they hid it on this beast. Said it could be up by the window washer motor.
I know about the Oxygen sensors but don't know how to test it. Is there a manufacturing recall on these parts.

Have the computer scanned for code/s-you have a problem within the engine management system that caused the CEL to turn on-This is your starting point of diagnosis, finding out what's going on.
