Asked by Rebecca Dec 02, 2016 at 11:49 AM about the 2006 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Like I said about 4 months ago my engine light kept coming on, so I was
told to change the spark plugs, wires and do a oil change, had it tested for
vacuum leak but there were none and all my sensors were good at that
time, the engine light went off came back on so I replaced my plugs again,
it went off now fast forward to now, the engine light is on again on my 2006
Ford Taurus it;s at the shop right now and they still can't tell me what's
wrong which is bs, the only code showing is P0300, random misfires, what
is wrong with my dang car, I need it fixed

I would guess that you have a bad coil. Sometimes a bad coil will not register a specific cylinder. If you buy a coil pack and wires on Amazon it is way cheaper than the auto parts store.


If your car has individual coils then I would replace the whole set as the sets on Amazon are really cheap.
