1995 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 116000 miles
The thin film ingition (TFI) module used on many Ford engines prior to 1995 were notorious for causing engine stalling when temperatures exceeded 257degF. My 1995 Ford Taurus suffers from this condition. On at least 8 occasions, the engine has stalled. Each time, the situation was while in traffic. I replaced the unit recently with a Bosch manufactured part bought at an auto parts store. Unfortunately, replacement of the module has not fixed the problem.
There are numerous articles on the web that describe the history of this problem, and suggest replacing the unit will fix the problem.
What do you suggest I do next? My inclination is to replace again with a MotoCraft OEM module in the hopes that the composition is different and less sensitive to temperature. Or to add a makeshift heat shield. Any suggestions are appreciated.
have the same problem?
