Question Answered: 

There is a device in the key hole that's called the tumbler and it may be stuck and not want to release the key. There should be a pin hole under the steering housing that is used to take the whole key ignition out with the key sill inserted in the ignition. May need to use a paper clip to push the button under steering housing to release the key and cylinder.

Did you check the fuzes to see if any of them have popped? If not that may be the problem or it could be that one of your oxygen sensors may be bad.

Question Answered: 

In my opinion, I do not think you really need it. Its just there to water or other liquids that you may pass over from splashing into the engine compartment and other parts under the hood. I don't have my splash guard on my vehicle cause it was damaged and I'm not having any problems with it being off.

Well I just had a problem with this. I found out that my water pump propellers were corroded away and was causing water to boil or overflow out the reservoir and was also making the car over heat within a few minutes after it warmed up. I'd check the water pump or you can flush out your water lines, radiator, and heating coil and then see if it boils or overflow again. If it does check the water pump to see if the propellers are'nt corroded away. That just may be your problem, it was mine.

U may want to go to a ford repair shop. It sounds like your vent door is stuck in one position or the lil electric motor has done it time and its time to get another one. turn your car on and lisen by the dash. Turn the control knod that turns on the a/c. Now turn the controll knob to all the other settings and listen to see if you hear somthing like a door moving behind the dash. If you dont hear anything behind the dash you need a new vent door motor.

Question Asked: 

I have a 1997 ford taurus GL. It started running hot when i was done changing the head gaskets. I did a test to ckeck and see if there was a pressure leak from the cylinder heads in to the coolant channels, there was none. I flushed out the radiator and heating core and engine block. I have a new thermostat i put on but even with it installed or uninstalled my coolant still over flow in to exspansion tank. The coolant runs real good through the radiator and lines and my water pump dosnt leak and is operating properly. The car still runs hot thow and overflows with coolant. The radiator has been sprayed in its vents and my coolant fan come on at the rite time. I really need some help with this.

Question Answered: 

Well from what I can see your having an power steering problem. U may not have to replace your pump, its could be that you have air in the lines. Heres what I did. 1) Start the engine. Using the line wrench, break the high-pressure line loose at the steering gear. If you are not sure which line is the high side, look at the power steering pump. The highest line that is held in by a flare nut is the high-pressure line. The lowest line is held in with a hose clamp and is the return line or low-pressure line. 2) Run the engine and slowly open the high pressure fitting on the steering gear just until the fluid starts running out. Stop there and hold it open until nothing but fluid is coming out. Tighten the fitting. 3) Fill the power steering reservoir as needed. Turn the steering wheel lock to lock in both directions several times in order to bleed the remaining air out of the system. After this is done fill the reservoir once more. 4) Add some power steering conditioner to the power steering fluid in the pump reservoir. This helps lubricate the seals and prevent leaks. It will also quiet down some power steering pumps, depending on how bad the valve is.
