2002 Taurus SEL On cold start-up runs very rough, shakes and smokes (too much gas?) once engine reaches operatirng temp smooths out no missing, aok rest of day. Replaced computer. No improvement.
Any light on in the dash?
battery light on...also have changed coil and plug wires...once at operating temperature dash lights go off...
Battery light is most likely your alternator is failing. What is the voltage across the battery terminals with the engine running? Should be 14V.
