Ford Taurus x Sel 2008 hesitation in starting ...

Asked by Jan 14, 2013 at 07:46 AM about the 2008 Ford Taurus SEL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello guys,
Need help and advise. My car sat outdoor in subzero weather while I was gone for 20 days. It was not subzero all
the time. At some point it got in the 40-ties. Now that I am back, that is what happens.
The car does not have difficulty in starting, but in the initial acceleration and switch from like 1-2 gears . Two light
poped out- engine and a bolt key/ driver?
Before I left car had no problems. From everything I read it may seem to be the moisture in the distributor cap
causing misfire?
Me and my car are in Russia currently. Not only I don't trust local mechanics. Everything costs here twice as much
as in US. Is it something I can try to handle myself?
Thank you

although I cant help much on what is actually wrong with your car i can tell you it doesnt have a distributor. It has a coil on each cylinder. I would check and make sure you dont have water in the fuel.

    When the ignition key is engaged, all you hear is the fuel pump switch engaging and the fuel pump relay fuse clicking. The lights on the front panel will come on and guages as well.
