My car hesitate (misses) when attempting to merge into traffic on freeways,
and during acceleration or change of speeds after I have attained driving
speed. The engine does not shut down. It just vibrates or stalls or
hesitate until it finally get up to speed. After that it runs fine. The
hesitation only occurs when I ask the engine to give me more speed. I have
been told something is wrong in the front end. The drive axles are less
than two years old. My car has 61,000 miles on it. YES, 61,000 miles. This
is why I cannot accept the diagnosis I have been given. This car is not
I believe it is fuel starvation, or electrical breakdown. Moreover, if
this car has the EFI system, I think it does, it may be the computer that
controls the fuel injection system.
Before I allow anyone to tear into the front end of this car I am seeking
information/advice/knowledge from anyone that knows about this problem
with their Ford Taurus.
Oh, I almost forgot. CHOO CHOO! While sitting/parked, I can bring the RPM
up until the engine start choo chooing. I have been told that is the
governor preventing an over speed. While that may be true, but not in my
case. This is something that just started two weeks ago. I maintain my car
myself and I have brought the RPM up many times and this car has not been
Choo Chooing like it does now.
Finally, I maintain a good car. That is why I do not believe it is in the
front end. My drive train is in good condition. For this reason I believe
it is fuel starvation or electrical.
I need HELP/ADVICE. What can I do about/solve this problem?
Please email me your response.
