Re: 2002 Taurus luging and jerking under load
If you haven't had a tune up in 20,000 miles and the fuel filter has 20,000 miles on it
that is your first major problem. When was your last oil, filter change ? I personally think
your engine is suffering from serious neglect. Just my opinion. I have 94 - 95 - 96 Tauruses. They get a fuel filter change every 6 months regardless of mileage. Oil and filter apporx. every 3 months, Plugs once a year. My cars average 38 M.P.G. and 500,000 miles. The bodies fall off before there is any engine trouble. I live 60 miles from the nearest city and on the hwy. 3 - 4 times a week. I cannot have a break down. And i
don't. ( so far ). Spending a few dollars a month beats the hell out of a $300.00 tow job.
