about 5 miles from home, my car died in an intersection and would only click when i turned the key. battery is less than a year old. got it towed home, charged the battery and put a multi tester on it. when i started the car it was at 13, turned on the lights and it dropped. changed the voltage regulator and alternator and it still drains the battery without re-charging it. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE? PLEASE HELP. car only has 78,000 miles on it. i bought it from a widow who had not driven very much after her husband died

got a 1999 Taurus 3.0L DOHC and the shaft behind the harmonic pulley(crank pulley) broke.
I got the harmonic pulley and bracket off and had to grind the shaft down to the to the damper pulley where there is a nut.
I used a 3/4 breaker bar and 6' pipe to try and unthread the shaft from the center of the damper counterclock wise but it won't move. Does anyone know if the thread are left or right thread in the center of the damper pulley? Everything online says there right thread and to unthread go counterclock wise.At my wits end, if you have a diagram, it would be great! Thanks

how long to replace belt tensioner

My 1999 Ford Taurus has stopped running, I was not driving the day that it stopped but car was having trouble beforehand I think I got bad gas about two or three weeks before it actually quit. Everytime I accelerated my car would i guess you can call it pouting like it wanted to backfire but never did just the jerking but would stop once speed gained. The day car stopped it had gas in it there was water not overheated to my understanding. Replaced one of the relays that was burnt out(not the starter or fuel pump relay) Car turns over but won't crank when battery charged. Just not sure how much more I want to invest in this car. Was told that fuel pump was turning on but does that mean that it is good condition. Please help me to know where to start.

when i press the remote to open or lock the car, it makes an attempt to do what it is intended for does not fo;;ow through

car runs hot when idle

happened after having the transmission replaced

hi dude, this morning i just turn the key in the ignition, anything is ok but engine. no sound of engine start. meantime, the battery indicator lamp (red) just blinked. so what happen?

I am looking for the fuse for the transmission. I only have first gear and I wonder if I have a bad fuse.

I took the side cover off & removed the veins for the pump , but the shaft does'nt want to pull out . Is there a retainer clip behind the throttle body ? If so when I pull off the body will I have to worry about dropping any check balls or springs or is there any thing else I should know ?


I cannot shift my car out of park unless i turn the key to ACC. halfway to power up, and then put it into neutral. I can then start it, and shift normaly except back to park. then I have to repeat the above process. Happens all the time.

Hi! I have a 2001 Taurus LX, on which remote keyless entry was not standard equipment. I would like to add it and I have been told that I can swap out the GEM from the same model year that had keyless, and then I will be able to program remotes. Firstly, is there any truth in this? Secondly, where/what is the GEM module? Thirdly, what steps would be needed to accomplish this? Thanks!

Unless I turn the key to ACC and then shift to neutral, I cannot get my car out of park. When driving it, if I put it into park, It will get stuck there. I then have to shut down, put the key in ACC then shift to neutral, and then restart.

when the 6 disk cd changer is inserted into the holding area in the center console, it displays "CDE" on the head unit display. The radio, tape player works fine. You can hear the changer make noises likes it trying to work, but just wont play the cd's.

My car misses at idel it also misses if you try to excelorate fast. I get code PO301 PO302 PO171 PO136 and PO141. I replaced the EGR and the DPFE with no change. The PO136 and PO141 just recently showed up. The others have been going on for some time now. Please help

While driving the car the guages will start to go crazy and the vehicle just shuts off. sometimes it can go fine for a day or two and then just starts getting crazy again. Sometimes it will it 6 - 10 times before I can get home. It'll just do random shut offs, while stopped, turning, on the freeway

when I shift in to reverse the radio. the wiper motor , the power windows all stop working, and other electrial problems occur. I checked for loose woires and wires being pinched when I shift but did not find any.

Don't know the code no. they didn't tell me. But my car cuts out at any speed like it is gonna cut off, and I have some little things that have cropped up like the hi beam light on the dash not working, The auto head light cut on/ off not working, The runner lights not shutting off (had to pull the fuse) the A/c not working now the heat. Other little things- can't figure out where these fuses r located to check them but from the book, it shouldn't be the fuse

hose on the back of the radiaor is mushy and am leaking antifreeze, cannot find where the hose connects to for replacement

looked at the fuse guide in owners book, but it was not listed.

Sometimes when I'm at a light and takeoff it pulls and jerks when I reach 20-30 MPH, or when I press on the gas to speedup and I don't know why.
