2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Automatic 148159 miles
ok, earlier today I drove during rainy weather and as I was down the road from my first destination my car started to sputter really badly (usually its only a little sputter during rainy weather) But its a really strong, hard sputter and then my engine light went on then started to flash! I got really worried so I called my dad. He claims that always happens especually with my car since it doesnt like 'water', but when it would rain the light wouldnt come on at all and flash? My dad said to not worry about it becauseits typical, but I think he is wrong, my owners manual says that if my engine light is on and flashing then its a major problem - like the engine backfiring- what should I do? Should I be worried? When I got home I opened the hood and didnt see or smell anything. I was also thinking about driving to autozone to have it read-codes- my car wouldnt go over 30mph even on a highway or a busy street.I had to drive with my emergency lights flashing to warn others that my car might die on me.
have the same problem?
