It would run fine for the rest of the day as long as we did not leave it sitting for a few hours. If not, you could try spraying some throttle body cleaner into the intake air path while someone cranks the engine over. If the distributor cap is not set correctly once replace will this have any effect on the engine not starting. If it starts ok in the morning, it won't the same evening. The cranking sounded fine it just would not turn the engine over. Some one told me to check the intake air control what do you think about that. Are you sub 32 degrees f? Some one told me to check the intake air control what do you think about that.
What do you think about this? Maybe there is something to this theory. We are giving it an oil and filter change tomorrow. If you leave a door open so the interior lights are on, then try to start it, does the interior light completely dim or blink? I went to pick up my brother from his girlfriends house, same thing I was doing the last time the car died mind you, and the car dies in her driveway in drive. How about trying to start the car with the headlights on? I was able to pick up my car today but it is still having some issues. This can strip the threads, break seals.
The car is currently sitting at my uncles auto garage and I am going to tow it to someone else. Unless the fuel system is dumping just a ton of fuel into the cylinders and hydro-locking. Remove the G101 ground eyelets and place the battery cable eyelet nearest the sheet metal on the double-ended stud. Now heet is on my maintenance list. Maybe the fuel injectors are not operating. Paid the bill, got my itemized receipt for repairs and left.
Sounds like you have something with your starter motor that is opening up when it gets hot, maybe worn brushes or an open in the windings. Install the core cover, seal, lever, spring, metal cover, actuator and heater hoses. The repair shop called to tell me my car was done and ready to pick-up. The engine did not turn over, and all the lights, radio, indicators blanked out like they normally do. I will try to get the pics up tomorrow assuming I don't manage to lose this phone.
There is some type of line under the hood that was like a valve stem and a friend stuck a pen in the valve stem to see if gas came out and it did because the fuel pump or clogged fuel filter was our first thought when the not starting and dying while driving happened. If this happened to me I might do something like buy pizza for the shop to show my appreciation for the work they did. If the distributor cap is not set correctly once replace will this have any effect on the engine not starting. There are multiple sensors that work together to help ensure proper engine firing and timing, all of which could make the Ford harder to start during the cold winter months if they are not working properly. Unless the fuel system is dumping just a ton of fuel into the cylinders and hydro-locking. Thank you Cougar for your analysis. The lights worked before the water but did not work after the water.
Ford TaurusWon't Shift Out Of Park, Brake Lights Don't Work With. The original symptoms of the main problem was that early in the morning when the car had not be driven it would take several cranks to start it. Things get more personal when you show kindness like that. And once again Tester you mentioned an ignition issue which is something I never knew about. I would be checking for spark. Start the Taurus' engine and let it reach normal operating temperature.
. I had a problem with the ignition switch. It's 2010 and I still don't have a digital camera! As I recall, the headlights and taillights turn on with the same switch, but they are not on the same fuse in the fuse panel. They think they are just going to have to reset the computer and see if this helps. The starter should not cause the engine to die, unless the bendix is staying engaged and loading the engine enough to kill it. Does this have any effect? Next time this happens, turn the headlights on and try to crank the engine. It sounds like you are getting fuel to the fuel rail, but do you have any indication that the fuel is making it to the cylinders? This is such a great website.
They said the starter, alternator, battery are all fine and in good condition. Any advice that you would like to give me or more tests that we can do to the car would be appreciated. This is such a great web site. But I guess you now have a place you can depend on getting things fixed. The rubber boot that covers the front of the gear shift lever down on the console will slip up and keep the release button from releasing all the way. Could the filling up while the engine is running issue be related to the fuel pump sucking in air bubbles or something? Don't just look at them, but remove them from the battery and clean all mating surfaces. If the lights are bright when you are doing this, you probably have a bad connection.
