Ford Taurus QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I started my car (after buying a new battery last week that was larger than the factory one I had) and suddenly my heater is on high and cannot be adjusted or turned off & my radio won't turn on?
It took the mechanic 4 hrs to find it's a sensor in the middle panel (and now can't find the part and said it may need to be built at the factory) so my questions are:
- Does 4 hrs to find the problem seem like a long time?
- Should the part be so hard to replace?
- Could the stronger battery be to blame?
This is a new mechanic for me (I just moved to town) and I'm starting to doubt that I should have trusted my brothers referral.
Thanks in advance for your help. Judi

2001 Ford Taurus SE, 104k miles.
When braking during deacceleration, my car shudders and makes an audible sound (it's more like a deep vibration). The steering wheel shakes so badly I feel like I'm going to lose control!
Also, I have to slam on the brakes when going over 30 mph. At slower speeds, only a tap is all I need. Seems like the two might be related.
Leaks a little after driven a while. Need proper way to tighten bolts. No problem with transmission, just leaking at two bolts. Would like directions
It didn't pass because one of the codes didn't pass that they said and I paid the money so now do I get it free
had the car repaired 3 times since oct. 2015 and now my mechanic tells me to take it to ford - why my car rides rough over bumps - and has a lot of bounce - had tire rods and a whole lot of work - alignment and link replaced from oct 2015 have paid 1300. in repairs and still not right
From distributor to plug which goes with which?
Changed plug wires ONE at a time, after that, car was hard to start. Then, idles rough, misses like crazy. I checked the wires over & over, can't figure out why it runs rough, after NEW wires? Thanks.
I can hear the noise of the motor (?) when I press the button but seat will not move.
I only Drive in town how often should I change my oil
Where is my fuse box located
I would like to know when should I change a wiper blade and wiper blade arm
My ac compressor went out and I had to get a used one but the a/c still doesn't work. My grandma said that if I replace it then it will go out in a year or two. Is this true? Is it worth the money to fix it?
My car has had the check engine light on for 4 years! Every time I take it in it's the same thing the air intake has an issue. I have tired to have this fixed over and over in the last few years. The last time I had it looked at they told me there was a leak in the hose but they can't find it!
Every time I go to use my wiper fluid the hose has come off, I just got it replaced a few moths ago and it is already off. I don't use it a lot it doesn't rain much here so there is months that go by before I have to use it again. Why does this keep happening how can I keep it in place?
I have 147,000 miles on it.
I know how to change one pretty much by heart by now. Feel like the dad in "A Christmas Story" was with fuses.
I hear a click like something's rattling around in the trunk when I make an uphill turn, sometimes other turns.
The front end of the vehicle will shake violently when applying the brakes (sometimes). I can't seem to reproduce this every time, but it will definitely not do it if you just slam on the brakes hard. Gently applying pressure will cause it to vibrate. I already took it to a shop and they inspected the brake pads and confirmed they are fine.
My car stutters and I think it's because the spark plugs are bad.
I burned up a hose on my Taurus while trying to go in over gear and passed a car. Now I can hear air coming out of the pipe.
When I drive my car a lot the head gasket tends to start wearing out and leak water.
