Re: 1994 Taurus GL Station Wagon. w/95 3.8L Engine. My previous post included the fact that when I start this car up for the first time in the a.m. it runs as good as anybody would want and then after the first stop and restart, I get no pickup and the temp goes up. Some have offered that the cats are clogged. The only question that I have concerning that is if the cats are clogged, wouldn't the car have a bad pickup and start heating up right off the bat and not after a 3-5 mile run. I only ask because a bad EGR Valve Position Sensor can create the same symptoms. Replacing the cats are a lot more expensive ($250-400) than about $75.00 for a new sensor. I value your input.
