Ford Taurus 2000 SE Engine problem
This is a Ford Taurus 2000 SE, approx 100,000 miles on it.
This problem initiated during a very rainy day a few weeks ago, leading me to the conclusion that something internal got wet.
Since then, the engine light has been on, due to my extreme time constraint and ignorance I haven't had it checked yet.
Today, if your from Boston, you know how bad it is raining. I started the car and the original municipal problem inclined to a worse degree. Supporting my original thought that rain is the biggest contributing factor to the problem.
When I start the car, and start to accelerate, it stutters, the opposite of going smoothly, it'll sort of like "hiccup" consistently, this hiccup distributes the acceleration, The car accelerates very oddly, sometimes, dependent on how hard or to what angle of degree the acceleration pedal is pressed down will determine how fast it goes, its like I need to find that perfect amount of pressure needed to be place don the acceleration pedal for it to accelerate fast. Notice How I said, just fast. No matter what It will not accelerate smoothly no matter what I do.
My potential solutions
1. I believe one of the 6 cylinders is miss firing, maybe more then 1/6, maybe 2/6 ect.. If that was the case, would that make sense?
2. Water is getting behind the hood, therefore flodering the engine compartments, maybe something got wet ?
Any help would be appreciated, I am going to the car service center today but just thought I should get a little background before
