Will a bad EGR make a 2001 Ford Taurus SES 6 cylinder stall at idle or slow speeds but seem OK at faster speeds?

Answer to your question YES.Actualy a EGR valve doesn't reallystart working until you get up to higher speeds. At idel and slowerspeeds it's not active. So if something is wrong with it weatherit be EGR senser bad diaphragm orvacum hose the problem will showupat lower speeds and idle. It actually causes a vacum leak wichyou wouldn't notice at higher RPM's. It cuases your engine to run to lean making it run bad atlower RPM's. Hope this brings some light on this for ya.

Assuming that you aren't over-heating, check the fuel pump. My 1999 Taurus used to stall/ refuse to start when it was hot due to a faulty pump.

A very low idle can cause a 97 Ford Taurus to stall. Another reason for stalling may be transmission bands sticking, which does not allow the transmission to come out of gear on idle.

It depends on the gearing of the car. If you are in the highest gear and 40mph in that gear is under the idle rpm of that car than you will stall.

Not much faster. True helicopters are limited in airspeed. The helicopter blade can not fly faster than the speed of sound or it begins to flutter and even stall. The advancing blade has to go through the air faster than the retreating blade. The speed of the blade is the sum of the speed of the helicopter in forward flight plus(+) the rotational speed of the turning blades. If they can design a blade that will work at slow speeds and at speeds greater than Mach 1, then maybe they can build a faster helicopter.

It sounds like your engine is not getting enough fuel.

Need to know the year and make, It would help answer.

I'm no mechanic, BUT that happened on my Taurus when the fuel pump was not functioning properly. Best to take it in.

If the engine runs cold you might try replacing the thermostat. I had a similar problem with a Plymouth van, at low rpms, turning corners,,, it would stall.

The first thing I would try would be cleaning the throttle body with some carb and choke cleaner. When they get really dirty it can cause you to stall at slow speeds. On my 93 there is a Crank Shaft Position sensor. Mine started to melt and the jeep stalled at weired times for a week. If your jeep has a lock up solenoid in your tranny and its stuck on, then you will stall at stops Not sure about a 94, but my 2000 would stall while driving at highway speeds. Dealer replaced the oxygen sensor and it fixed the problem.

mine had a elec. short @ high speeds or shrp turns it would stall out. wait 5 min then it starrt again or open the hood and wiggle around the fuses in the fuse box facing the car towards the windshield on the right side

You Are Putting To Much Load On Your Engine. When It Starts To Stall Drop It Into Regular Drive. Also You Need To Drive At Slow Speeds In Regular Drive. At Speeds Say Around 50 MPH You Can Use OD. By Allowing Your Car To Slug Around In Overdrive You Are Doing Your Transmission In Amoung Other Things. Your Car Was Not Designed To Run This Way. Stay Out Of Overdrive At Slow Speeds. This Should Solve Your Problem. If This Does`nt Have A Good Tune UP.

The idle for the 97 Taurus could be too low. The transmission bands could be sticking some as well, not allowing the transmission to come out of gear during idling.

if it happens when you go full throttle or at highway speeds try replacing the fuel filter

Could be many reasons such as bad alternator, or bad fuel pump.

Bad torque converter. They lock when you go at highway speeds, to improve efficency. If they don't disengage properly, the car will stall when you stop. Could be a bad solenoid (switch). Can be fixed or bypassed. If bypassed, you save the cost of a repair, but will lose highway efficency.

Stopped up exhaust.Cat converter is bad and blown back into muffler causing stoppage.

User Avatar

The brake master cylinder has nothing to do with the way the car runs. It certainly wouldn't cause it to stall.....Maybe the brake booster?

User Avatar

sounds like a crankshaft positioning sensor. must be at low speeds and stop signs?
