I have a 1995 ford taurus fuel injection. Lately in the past month it has failed to start numerous times. When I try to start the car all the engine will do is turn over. If I let the car sit for about an hour it will start.It will run fine and start fine for a period of time, even days and weeks and then it will fail to start. Each time I let it sit for a period of time than it will start. What is the problem? Help please

Hi, I have a 2000 Ford Taurus SE 24 valve 3.0L DOHC with a huge problem. It started with the starter one day it just died on me so i had that replaced and when i turned my car on it started but the battery light had come on and my battery was dead. i had it looked at by a few mechanics and they had said it was the alternator so i bought that new and replaced that too along with a brand new tested battery just to be safe. This still has not fixed my problem and I'm out of suggestions. Does anyone have any ideas?
my car will not come out of park,when this happened the police did something under the dash to get the car going then the car was running fine,the next day the car was stuck in park
No electricity at all...No lights, no response to the key, nothing. When turning the key back in forth like trying to start the car..the power comes back for a sec and then nothing again. Am almost sure that the problem is ether the ignition switch or the Ignition Lock Cylinder. But how do I know witch one to replace.
Car was running fine, cut it off and it wouldn't crank back, it's not firing. Diagnostic code said module that reads the key code was bad, replaced and that didn't fix it, no codes now. Mechanic says there are 3 wires that tell it to fire, one is sending signal, the other 2 are not. He thinks it may be a computer issue. Any suggestions? How much will it cost to replace the computer?

The radio in my 2001 Ford Tarus does not turn on even though the AC works. I took it to a radio repair shop and they said it was the radio module. I relaced the whole module and the AC control works but the radio still doesn't turn on.
I am confused b/c there is only one wire harness for the entire module so how could power work for one side and not the other?

The temperature light goes from middle to hot and back and forth continually. I had to have the radiator hose replaced and I have put 2 gallons of anti-freeze in the resevoir. What would cause the constant moving back and forth of the needle?

car will not start after runing while in hot weather. If I let it set for about 45 minutes it starts. This only happens when weather is hot. I changed the spark plugs but this did not help
What could cause a grinding sound that comes and goes 10% of the time? It is not the starter, could be a pully....? We think it is coming from the pully area, but could not isolate the sound. Installed a new belt and idler pully - still making the sound.
While driving the car the RPM are extremely high and the car continually increases speed without my foot on the accelerator. I have to keep my foot on the brake to stop the vehicle to stop it and even after turning it off, the engines starts off reving high RPMS go to 4 and I have to shut off the car and it still doesn't decrease. What can I do?
No crank- starter does not operate with the key. Battery, cables, max and min fuses, nuetral safety switch, and the starter are GOOD. (I can 'spin it' with a remote starter switch). Leaving the key in 'run', and using the remote switch still won't start the car, since I don't have spark or injector pulse either. Are there fusible links not mentioned in the owners manual? A wiggle test with a helper holding the key in 'start' doesn't help either. Any ideas?
When I turn on the air conditioner, air is blowing out but the air that comes out is not cold. What could be wrong? I know that it could be several different reasons why but how can I test it to find out what could be the problem?

My daughter was driving my 1996 Taurus to her work when it did a complete shutdown while she was making a right turn. The whole electrical system and engine shut down. Nothing in the electricl system would work when I got to the car. I pulled the battery out of the car and had it tested at local Advance store. Battery checked out good and all terminals were cleaned before reinstall. After reinstalling the battery, the car electrical system worked but it wouldn't start. Any suggestions? The car was towed and a local shop couldn't get it to turn either. They said the engine seized. Oil low. The car never overheated or showed any sign of it. The car had only been running 10 to 15 minutes.
Haven't run diagnostics, just started to happen. Air won't blow out of dash vents no matter what setting. Only blows thru defrost vents. Even when set to A/C, the air blow cold but only thru the defrost vents. Floor and window vents are all that blow.
