  • 2003 FORD TAURUS
I have a 2003 ford taurus, that has been in the ford dealership for the last 2 months. As you are driving down the freeway, highway, etc. The fuel light comes on, then the theft light, usually when the gas guage hits 3/4 of a tank full, and it will start to stall. If you can press on the the throttle peddle, than it will not die. When the gas guage needle is on the 1/2 a tank line, all the lights go out, I loose the RPM guage as well as the speedometer. I have had 3 new fuel pumps, EGR valve replace, and numerous other relays, to have the dealership basically tell me they do not know what to do with it. The car only has 55 000 miles on it or should I say 56,000 now they have done all of their test driving. Please tell me if other people are complaining, about this situation, and if there is actually something that can be done to repair this car. Thank you

I have a 2003 Ford Taurus SES and the theft light will come on while I am driving usually under 40 mph and then the vehicle will stall. Sometimes if I catch it soon enough and put my foot on the gas or brake it will kick out of it but a lot of the time it just completely quits in the middle of the road. It only has 54,700 miles is a 2003 Ford Taurus SES.

I've done some research for you but haven't come up with worthwhile answer other than this. You need to find an independent repair shop that is capable of interpreting data from a scanner as the problem happens. They can take a snapshot of the problem and interpret it. You may want to contact the local snap on tool dealer for a referal to a shop.

For what its worth, I have seen camshaft poition sensors and synchronizers go on these, but more often the code po340 is set.

I have had the dealer driving it for the past month and as soon as I get it back it does it. They can never get it to do anything. I finally gave up after a year of this hassle and as of today traded it back to the dealer and went back 6 years to a 1997 Ford Explorer XLT. Thanks for all you input though. I appreciate it much and for problems in the future will be looking here 1st, you have been the only one that has told me anything to check into.

Find yourself a good independent garage and stick with them. I'll try to help locate one if you like, just need your city/state and zip
