1994 Ford Taurus Problems

Engine -- Verified

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.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Worn motor mounts can cause the motor to rise during acceleration, causing a clunking noise and possibly damaging the AC hoses. Damage to the AC hoses can cause a loss refrigerant resulting in no cold air from the AC. The motor mount will need to be replaced prior to repairing the damaged hose or the problem will continue.

Engine -- Verified

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.

Engine -- Verified

If you experience difficulty starting the engine when cold, stalling at idle, or hesitations during acceleration, it may be the idle air bypass valve. This valve helps the vehicle idle steady when the accelerator pedal is not pressed.

my 94 ford taurus uses alot of gas,changed the plugs,still no help.could there b a bad sensor

i need the radiator fan wiring harness for 1994 ford taurus

I bought my '94 taurus in '04 after I got rearended driving my '92. I have had some issues with the transmission but yet I have been told that alot of taurus's have that. Just since May of this yr, my mom put alot of money into it....this car (3.8) has 41,480.5 miles on it. My (ex) is putting new bushings on it, axel and gas lines (my mom had someone bend them out of the way). Its funny though because I traded this car in for a '02 Explorer in '06 and got it back 6 months later after it was involved in a accident in which all the sway bars had to be replaced. Otherwise, the car hasn't done me any wrong since it does get me from a-b/b-a.

Does anyone no a web site that shows u owners manuals for a ford taurus 94 my blinkers and brake lights are out but my parking brake lights work???? Dont no wat to Do

Had mine for a lot of miles and it still runs great. Probably one of the best cars I've ever owned.
