Engine Performance problem
2000 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
Hello hopefully you can help me. I have asked different people and have gotten different answers. A couple months ago I noticed that my car would rev at all times while idleing. When I looked under the hood I noticed a foam piece connector was burned by hot oil (the connector connects the tube to the engine oil fill tank and I'm not sure of what it's called that the other end goes into). It was leaking some oil due this piece. I didn't buy the actual piece to fix it but I did get a temporary connector to hold it together for now. No oil leaking since then. The reving seemed to have stopped. About a week later the reving started again but only when I have my air on. I also noticed that while driving (at different speeds) I can take my car off the gas and it feels as if the brakes are being hit as the car roughly pulls back and then slows itself down quickly. If I go to press the gas again it hesitates before kicking in to pick up speed. There has been no check engine light on at all and when a computer diagnostics was done it showed no code. Some corrosion on one of the battery cables and the battery hasn't been changed for awhile. Not sure how old the alternator is. There is no other 'electrical like' problems with the car (i.E. Lights dimming, etc.) Please Help!
have the same problem?
