Car Starting Problems
Ford Taurus
Chevy S-10

Why would a 2002 ford Taurus run fine when you start it but after it warms up and shut it off then start it again it begins to die or sputter?

It COULD be a weak fuel pump. I have had a similar situation. In my case all I had to do was turn the ignition to RUN not start and let it sit until the pump stops humming. After the pump stops humming,then start the vehicle.
