I have no idea about automatics, much less about a Ford Taurus. Now, I don't know what year it is or what kind of engine/transmission it has. My friend across the continent asked me for help, and I have no idea where to start
Apparently, sometimes, it bucks and hesitates when accelerating from a stop when it's at operating temperature ... at other times it just sits there and revs. Finally, to throw a curve ball, it works fine on occasion. Perhaps it's low on tranny fluid? Dirty MAP or AFM? I have no idea.
Any ideas (other than pushing it off of a cliff or setting it on fire) would be appreciated
