1991 Ford Taurus Problems

Blown/Cracked Head Gasket Can Cause White Smoke From Exhaust

White smoke coming from the exhaust could indicate that a head gasket has blown or there is a cracked cylinder head. Our technicians tell us that removal and inspection of the cylinder heads will be required to confirm a crack is present.

MAP Sensor May Fail

A Lack of power, poor fuel economy, and black smoke from the exhaust can be caused by a defective MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor.

Engine Oil Pan Gasket May Leak

The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.

1991 Ford Taurus Recalls

Ford Recalls 1986-1995 Vehicles for Corroded Subframe Mount Plate Nuts

Ford has recalled certain 1986-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models and 1988-1994 Lincoln Continental models in high corrosion, cold weather states because the rear subframe mount plate nuts may corrode and fail, causing the subframe to drop. If the subframe drops, loss of vehicle control and functionality can occur. Dealers will install subframe rear mount bolts, reinforcement plates, and plate nuts.

Ford Recalls 1991-1995 Models for Speed Control Issue

Ford has recalled certain 1991-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models equipped with the 3.8L V6 and 1991-1994 Continental models for an issue with the speed control cable. In cold weather states, the speed control cable could freeze. This could cause the accelerator cable to stick. To deter moisture and ice build-up, dealers will add a rubber boot to the speed control cable.

Monroe Recalls 1990-1994 Taurus and Mercury Sable Models Due to Defective Weld Mounting

Monroe has recalled certain 1990-1994 Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles with Monroe aftermarket struts installed for a concern with the weld mounting on the sway bar bracket where it attaches to the strut tube. On some vehicles, this weld did not fuse properly, which can cause the sway bar to drop and possibly contact the tire, damaging it. Monroe dealers will replace the affected struts.

my 1991 ford tauras station wagen what a sweet hart of a car 22 years old get in the car say lets go go we go
Great car will never buy another car but a taurus.
