my 1998 ford taurus broke down im not sure what is wrong

Asked by Sep 01, 2012 at 08:51 PM about the 1998 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

it started out puttering and dying, then progressed to when the rpms get to around 3000-5000 the ABS light turns on and a few minutes after that, the RPM guage drops to 0 (at this point the engine still revs up and moves the car) and the needle in the speedometer doesnt move then after another 1-3 minutes after that it feels like the RPMs drop and it feels like the engine pulls when i press on the gas. any ideas on whats wrong?

Hard to say. You might have multiple issues at one time. When was the last time it was in the garage for an inspection? YOu can have a vacuum leak to ignition issues, fuel or transmission. Have a local mechanic diagnose it for you.
