04 Ford Taurus Gurgling engine
I just bought an 04 Ford Taurus with less than 60K in miles on it. Beautiful Car. But I am already having some problems with it. It is going into the dealer on Monday but I wanted to see if there were any ideas of what the issue may be here.
I noticed the engine started to make a tick/twitter sound two days ago. Yesterday that sound stopped and now it making a gurgling sound, almost like an old inkjet printer.
The gas pedal vibrates when you're driving it. The RPM needle started flexing while it was in park and when I went to start it after work yesterday it took a bit to turn over.
It was just repaired for a small oil leak that wasn't keeping the oil pressure up enough and it had a vacuum leak repaired as well.
