2005 Ford Taurus starts and then dies again Sign In

We have a 2005 Ford Taurus approx. 97,000 miles The car starts and in about 2-3 seconds it dies. The check engine light comes on and it idles rough. Is this enough information for someone to have an idea what is going on?

Can you keep it running by holding gas pedal up a bit or no go?

My son thinks that will work to get him somewhere to have this checked out. He is going to try. I'm sure my husband and I will have to meet him on the road....

You need to have the codes read before anything else.
