FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

WHEN VEHICLE IS STATIONARY IE STOP FOR A LIGHT OR A STOP SIGN THE R.P.M ON OCCASIONS DROPS FROM 600 TO LESS THAN 500 RPM AND IT START TO SHAKE, IF IF I AM NOT AWARE IT WILL STALL. WHAT WORRIES ME IS THAT ON A TRIP OF LESS THAN 5 MILES IT STALLED ON RED LIGHTS AND STOP SIGNS THE SAME HAS HAPPEN TO FAMILY MEMBERS. I HAVE TAKEN TO THE DEALER AND NOTHING IS FOUND ( ALSO TOOK IT TO A PRIVATE MECHANIC THE SAME RESULT WAS GIVEN) . SAME YEAR TAURUS HAVE BEEN HAVING FUEL PUMP PROBLEMS BUT MY VIN IS NOT REGISTER, LOT OF FRUSTRATIONS. THIS OCCUR MOSTLY IN CITY DRIVING ANT THE MOMENT NOT ON OPEN ROADS,HIGHWAYS.

UNKNOWN OR OTHER

7/27/2017 - SUNNYVALE, CA
THE HEADLINER HAS DETACHED FROM THE VEHICLE DESPITE ONLY 5 YEARS OLD. IT BLOCKS THE REAR WINDOW. ALSO, THE UPPER CENTER BRAKE LIGHT IS ON THE HEADLINER AND IS NOW NO OPERATING PROPERLY BECAUSE OF ITS ORIENTATION. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY HAZARD. FORD HAS ISSUED A TSB ON THIS. SEVERAL ATTEMPTS TO GET FORD TO REPAIR UNDER WARRANTY OR FOR SAFETY REASONS WERE UNSUCCESFUL. IT IS VERY DISAPPOINTING. RESEARCH CONFIRMS THAT THIS WAS A POOR DESIGN WITH LIMITED LIFE ON PLASTIC MOUNTING BRACKETS. REPAIR ESTIMATED TO ALMOST $1000!
