I would check the plug wires and the coils you check the plug wires for bad spots at night start the motor up and look at the plugs if you see a spark arch out the wire and to a peace of metal then the plug wires need to be replace.

The clue to all your problems is the engine light being on. It is correctly called an 'engine malfunction light'. When you attach an OBD11 scanner to the vehicle, it will give you a P-Code and tell you exactly what is wrong. Garages will usually read the code for free in the hope of getting the work. It literally takes less than 2 minutes.

Spark plugs last nearly the life of the vehicle these days.

your misfire is a known problem!

I have a 2000 ford taurus duratec dohc 3l, gitting lean codes on both banks and misfire codes on most cyclinders. I have replaced 4 coil packs , all spark plugs, pvc valve, idle control, and all 4 oxygen...


I would start with the intake gaskets. this gaskets are a common problem and would cause the lean condition and the misfiring and also before that even i would put a fuel pressure gauge on it to make sure the correct fuel pressure is being sent to the injectors, i weak pump can also cause this problem, starting witht the intake a smoke machine would be very helpful to pinpoint a gasket leak or using a scan tool and watching your fuel trim values while spraying throtlebody cleaner around the intake and seeing the values and if they change or the engine speed chages, this is where i would start. good luck and have a good day.

I dont think it is the PCV but its a good idea to replace the PCV at least once a year either way, and its very cheap, usually $2-$5 at autozone.
