Initially noticed a fuel odor at the beginning of Nov. 2000. I didn't know what it was. In February, I mentioned my sleepiness and headaches when driving the car for long lengths of time to my employer and they thought there might be a co problem. We placed a co tube in car and it was dirty within 72 hours. Went to local Ford dealership (hiller) and they had 2 other 2000 Ford Taurus in shop with same problem. Dealer wasn't exactly sure what problem was with car. Ford replaced the intake manifold gaskets and said that would take care of problem. Still was sleepy and nauseous/headachy. Ford dealer said that Ford will not do any more for me. Put new co tube on center vent and that too became dirty. Dealership still wouldn't do anything and took tube as evidence. I went out and bought co meter from hardware store and the reading went over 300 and alarm sounded. Called dealer on mon 03/26/01 and they would not talk to me and refuse to give me name/number of district manager. I am worried that if nothing is done, that myself or the next owner could cause and accident or worse, be killedfrom falling asleep at the wheel.
