2003 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 112, 30 miles
I've been having problems with my car lately whereas the car sitting at idle would die intermittenly. I replaced the fuel filter which seemed to help then symptoms came back and got worse to the point that the car wouldn't even start unless I shot starter fluid into throttle body in which case the car might run for 5-10 mins.I then dropped gas tank and replaced the entire fuel pump assy. The car ran fine for 2 days after which the car sat untouced for 4 days. I came home from a trip and tried to start car and again it would only turn over and not start unless I shot starter fluid into it, and then the car ran at idle for 5 mins before dying again. I don't beleive it's the new fuel pump. Could it be a defective pump relay or maybe a bad ground?
