CHECK YOUR BRAKE BACKING PLATE, SOMETIMES THEY GET BEND A LITTLE,, TRY JACKING UP ONE TIRE AT A TIME, AND ROTATE IT WITH YOUR HAND,, TO NARROW DOWN THE NOISE

could be a bearing in the alternator or belt idler,, get a broom stick and use it as a listing device, place one end on the motor in differnt locations,, the other end next to your ear,, this will help narrow down,, i know my personal explorer v8 has a vaccume leak that only makes noise from under the dash when i am, on the gas.. i do remember my alternator making racket before it quit last year

MOST COMMON ISSUE ON THE TAURUS IS WORN CLUTCHES IN THE TRANSMISSION,, HOW MANY MILES ARE ON YOURS? MORE THAN 100,000 MILES ? THE TRANS IS NEAR THE END OF ITS LIFE.. THERE IS A POSSIBLE SHIFT SOLONIOD ISSUE,, MIGHT TAKE IT TO THE DEALER, SO THEY CAN GET LIVE "FREEZE FRAME" DATA FROM IT, WHILE IT IS DOING IT.. THIS WILL HELP BETTER DETERMINE THE ISSUE
