My Ford Taurus needs help.?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
1. In the morning for it's first start: I have to prime the fuel pump three times, and crank the engine two, often three times. It ignites slow but levels off in a minute. Then runs smooth.
2. After the engine temp gauge reaches normal operating temp:
a. When using the cruise control it chugs.
b. After ten or twelve miles the speedometer goes to zero.
c. Sometimes, when I stop at a light it gets stuck in first or
second gear and I have to run it up to 4 or 5k RPM's to
make it change gears.
3. The 'Check Engine' light and the 'Air Bag' light stay on all the time. Once in a while they flash.

Maybe find a friend who has the tool to read the output from the car's computer. Those gadgets always read out something when the check engine light is on. New fuel pump maybe?

#1. Prime the fuel pump???... exactly what do you mean by that??

#2 + 3. At what point in it's history was this car flooded? (as in... under water.)
From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, "Look at that!" -...

FYI, the OP is obviously spam.
