Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles
Hi.I have 1995 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 V6 with 135K miles with remote start. Started car last night with remote starter and it idled normally for a few minutes. I backed up about 6 feet to get out of spot and as soon as I applied brakes, it stalled out which this car has NEVER done before. I tried to restart. The starter was cranking nicely, but the engine didn't show any signs of wanting to start-it was pure starter-no "almost catching" signs. I checked for codes on ODB and I got code 211 from computer memory which I found out indicates "2 or more successive Profile Ignition Pickup (PIP) pulses occurred, resulting in a possible engine miss or stall". Now, I don't know if that refers to something as recent as my stall last night but that code is not more than 3 months old as I had gone through codes that long ago and it was not present. Car is otherwise in excellent running condition and well maintained. Please advise on any possible causes to the stalling. Thanks.
have the same problem?
