I got a pretty good deal so I went ahead and took this 03 taurus SE off the guys hands. The pic above - is this the PCV valve? The car seemed to drive fine, I picked it up at a guys house and drove it 50 miles to mine - no issues. THis morning I start her up to move it and notice the Check Engine Light is now on.
Later this evening, I took the Taurus to get some groceries and it seemed like it wanted to die when I stopped at a red light, but it doesnt seem to do it all the time. The tranny seems to shift fine and I haven't stuck my head under the hood for more than 10 minutes yet.
I will take a look under the tin foil tomorrow - but could this somehow caused the car to somewhat sputter and feel like dieing when stopped? I'm going to replace this ASAP, but wondering if I may have bigger issues than a $10 PCV valve
