Engine Performance problem
1999 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 154000 miles
My '99 ford taurus has been having several problems lately. The car does not want to start, and when it does, I am forced to keep putting gas into it in order to keep it from stalling. When I shift between reverse and drive, the call stalls out. It also stalls while at stop lights or intersections. It does not want to idle more than 300 rpm and when I accelerate, it can jump up to 5000 rpm before I even hit 35 mph. It has a little more than 154,000 miles on it. I just put half a bottle of oil in to insure that the oil level was proper. I have seen this problem in the past during the winter. It is still warm where I am, and I do not think the car is cold. Any thoughts?
have the same problem?
