Asked by Sep 06, 2015 at 09:05 PM about the 2008 Ford Taurus SEL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes my speedometer stops working and my car hesitates to move
unless you hit the gas to the floor, and it shifts hard. All kinds of lights come
like the wrench, tire pressure, airbag and gas light & makes my mileage counter
blank and gas counter blank,  so I was wondering what causes this? Please
help me to fix this issue,  I love my car, thanks

It's an automatic, runs good and doesn't do this all the time

Carolyn, did you ever find a solution on your car? I am having the same problem you said you were having. If you had your vehicle repaired plz let me know what the issue was. Thanks
