Taurus SE 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 183,129 miles

so sick and tired of this damn piece of sh*t car spitting and sputtering. Bought the car from a private owner a little over a year ago for $3000 and I have already put $2000 worth of parts and labor into it and it still cont to act up. it has been nothing but a damn head ache. I just had to push it home today and had a mile to go. I am a single mother who majority of times acts like a man. it skips sputters always a white smokey substance comes from the tail pipe, it jumps like it is out of gas, when coming to complete stop it shuts off takes ten minutes or longer to get it restarted, over heats and does not show it on the temperature gauge. Fans do not come on when time to. hurt me pushing it for a mile with two kids in the back seat, in the hot ass sun. Also didn't help when just getting off work.

Hard to start then does not want to stay started. Idle problems. Sometimes it takes 5--10 minutes just to get going. Problem is more frequent. I use only the best gas, so that is not the problem.

The car shuts off/down at any rate of speed (including 60ish on the highway), the problem seem to be electrical because the radio also shuts on and off by itself...and I should mention that when the engine stalls everything in the dash goes hay wire. When attempting to restart it often takes several tries to get the engine to turn over.
