2003 Taurus 3.0 24 Valve 106K miles

I have an intermittent miss at idle. When it is cold it also misses under acceleration. Once warm only misses at idle. Changed fuel filter, added techron and premium fuel, no change. Check engine light has now turned on after 1 week.

Any ideas!

Scott

Sounds like you have a misfire. Get the codes first to find out which cylinder is the culprit---unless you haven't changed the spark plugs at 100K miles, which will cause a misfire. You should also change the plug wires too if you haven,t unless you have seperate coil packs. When you take out the spark plugs check the gap- their probably worn wide open. Give this a shot.

Folks post problems asking for help. Help suggestions get offered but we sometimes never hear if the problems get fixed. This is a help forum--- for suggestions to have meaning, responses are necessary.
