Asked by Jul 14, 2011 at 12:04 AM about the Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

lets start by hoping it was full of oil when this happened. Have the engine compression checked. check the spark plugs (they have a temperature rating and there is a probability you may have fouled them) Have you noticed any visible exhaust or any changes in the way the car idles or runs? Also what year taurus is this?
