03 Taurus 3.0L 24V hesitates at highway speed
I'm looking at buying my Uncles 03 SEL taurus. 52000 Kms
Every thing about the car was acceptable, except when accelerating from 100 Km/h.
I stepped on the gas, the engine revved up to 5,000rpm then dropped down to the 2300 rpm or so that it was doing and then takes off smoothly.
Is this normal?
I imagine that the issue is the tranny is trying to kick down into a lower gear and the speed was too high initially and so it put it back in gear and then accelerated.
Any words of wisdom?
