1997 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 199789 miles
Earlier this year my car started jerking while I was driving down the road, and I had no power at all even with the pedal clear to the floor. I shut it off and it started right back up and I got all the way home with no problems. Then it got to the point to where it would idle rough, jerk, and stall just about every time I would slow down or stop. Then it got to where I would drive about 15 miles and it would act up really bad, and after I shut it off for a little bit it would run again, but idle roughly. Now it takes forever just to keep it idleing. I will start it up and it will shut off right away, even when I shove the pedal to the floor it will rev up a little bit and backfire like crazy and stall again. I was getting a trouble code for banks 1 and 2 being too lean, then I replaced the mass airflow sensor now it says banks 1 and 2 are too rich. I have replaced the spark plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, fuel pump, PCV valve, camshaft sensor, mass airflow sensor (MAF), EGR valve, and still no luck. I have had the catalyic converters checked and they are fine. I have put way too much money into it now, and I have had several mechanics tell me that they have no idea what could be wrong, because I have replaced about everything in the troubleshooting guides they have.
have the same problem?
