Ford Taurus QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Car recently had head gaskets changed, but ended up having a miss after that. One day driving down the highway it started to decelerate and wouldnt pick up speed when i pressed the accelerator, but once i pulled over n popped the hood it had smoke coming from around the engine n smelled like burned rubber. I turned the car off and it wouldnt start but it would turn over freely. My diagnostic tool showed i had a misfire in 2 cyclinders and bank 1 was too lean. I was told i should get another motor, but i want to know if thats what i should really do because i need to get my car fixed asap.
My drivers seat drifts up and down, will not go forward or backwards. What can I do to fix it?
what is the approxximate cost of replacing 2008 ford taurus transmission speed sensor?
When the lights are on and the car has been running for a while they will eventually light up. But when there not working the turn signals stay lit up like it's a bulb or something....
Ok so all of a sudden while driving my lights come on mph goes to zero. Rams goes above 2 -5 no get up and go. Says -- miles to empty. Says -- miles driven. Tire pressure light comes on. Airbag light, engine light, fuel light, and more. I turn it off over night it's fine. For a few weeks than does again. What is going on.

Car is struggling for power when accelerating. Not sure what's causing it but thought I'd ask about a tune up.

I have a 2002 for Taurus wagon we just recently put a new transmission in it and about 2 to 3 months later it started idling weird like its almost about to stall, and when you press the acceleration it goes but jumps alittle bit before finally getting speed. Also I noticed the exhaust is not blowing constant air out its like its takin a breath and blowing like (in out in out). My dad and I put some c foam in it and replaced te fuel filter but it's still doing it alittle bit it actually does it worse when te Ac is on like the car is struggling to go at all.
Code was P0442
I was driving today and my car started to have problems shifting gear. The transaxle light came on and the speedometer stopped working. What can I do to fix problems?
Took vehicle (Ford 500) to shop because AC not working. Diagnosis was compressor broken at cost of $1500. Next day receive call that radiator must be replaced as it is "leaking". My own feeling is that radiator was broken/damaged by mechanic but of course, they're claiming otherwise. It had not been leaking fluid prior to this. Car is used frequently. Any thoughts or ways we can get mechanic to at least foot the bill for part of radiator replacement ($500)?
I've replaced pcm, ignition switch, lock cylinder, relays, power and ground wire, tested starter and battery. Jumped starter at relay and it turned. Checked fuses and mega fuse. Good continuity on all accessible wires. With key off and out 3 warning lights have a low glow. Theft light flashes every 3 seconds when key is off and not on when key is on. Replaced neutral switch and shortening different gears no crank. I was in stop and go traffic engine died. After 10 minutes it restarted and died again. Nothing since.
Had dealer replace the starter and stabilizer links in October. Car had 51k miles. Just has left stabilizer link replaced ( it came apart) and starter replaced (it quit). Not happy. Now water pump is leaking (they want $1800 to replace it). Car has 81k miles now
