2004 Ford Taurus: sputtering..I accelerate..idle..bad fuel

Customer Question

My 2004 Ford Taurus is sputtering when I accelerate. It is jumpy at idle as well. Has gotten worse over the past week - I thought maybe bad fuel at first... Ideas of the problem? Cost?

Hi. Can I please have the VIN number so I can determine which engine is in your car. It is either a 3.0 12valve or a 3.0 24valve. Thanks, Eric
