Okay...I'm back with another question about my wife's 1990 Taurus wagon with
the 3.0 liter. It reads 97,000 miles, but it could very well be 197,000 as
we bought it used and the owner didn't know for certain.
The problem is a lack of power when you accelerate. It feels like you are
trying to pull a tank behind it. Zero to 60 in 8.5 seconds? More like zero
to 60 in 8.5 minutes. Seriously, it takes FOREVER to get up to cruising
speed. Also the check-engine light goes on and off at random intervals. I
just got the oil changed, and the light stayed off for nearly 200 miles, then
it came back on.
I'm sure this is something simple, but I'm a real dummy when it comes to
anything under the hood.
