Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 151000 miles
I've been experiencing problems with my car starting. If it's been sitting for a while, I'll try to start it, and nothing will happen. The computer comes on, the radio and lights and all that, but my engine isn't even TRYING to turn over. There's nothing. I brought it to my mechanic, and he said the car started fine for him, so he didn't think anything was wrong. But something is definitely wrong! When I can actually get it to start, it sounds really rough, a really hard start. It seems to be related to rain, as I notice I have more problems with my engine when it rains. I live in Florida, so heat and rain are factor here, and my car doesnt seem to like either. In the past, my boyfriend tried a little trick he learned and sprayed some WD40 on my starter, and for whatever reason, that worked and my car would magically start after that. But that's not working this time. I'm not sure what to do! I've allready had my battery and its terminals replaced and cleaned, but I'm pretty sure this doesnt have anything to do with my battery. Please help!
have the same problem?
