I have a 99 Taurus, im a college student and a couple times on drives home ive stopped to get gas (about 40 miles into the drive) and when i went to start the car on again it wouldnt start. it starts to turn over before just dying. This also happened the other day after running errands for a couple hours. any ideas on what it could be?

Fuel filter or pump? Not a lot to go on. Is check engine light on? Did it just start? Could be electrical if it is related to ignition or EGR . Any more info??
Good luck. I would just ride the bus these days!!

If you are having starting problems after driving some distance (that is engine got hot), a common culprit is idling control motor. It is not a difficult repair. Just a screw driver. But make sure you have the problem only when the engine is hot (or warm), and engine fires but dies.
