2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 177209 miles
the light stays on mostly but sometimes it will go off for a couple day, then here is the symptom that causes it to come back on.
when idleing at a traffic light or in park for just less than a minute, the engine will begin idleing rough, but not what you would call severe and the engine light flashes. Upon accelaration, it moves with a bit of skipping, then at less than a 100 yds or so down the road it clears completely and the check light stops flashing. And there are times that is wont do this at all, but most times it does. I have found that if I place in nuetral, and accel the engine to around 1000 to 1100 rpm, the engine will not skip. But if it idles at normal, most times than not it will begin to rough idle. Thank you
have the same problem?
