Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a "99" Ford Taurus. The check engine light just
recently came on . The car is now running kind of rough.
What could be the cause???

Any number of things. To find out scan for the OBDii trouble codes. Any auto part store can do it for free. My guess would be a misfire or a vacuum leak.

Tune up or a bad vaccum line ! I just fixed my 1999 Taurus se last night and it was a vacuum hose but it also needed a tune up so I did that also and now iui t runs perfectly ..
