With car in gear. Put in neutral and idles fine

Started out having a hard time starting, till wouldnt start. Tested the battery, it was no good. Bought new one, next day still having trouble starting maybe even worse. While driving, it was having trouble excelerating and wanted to die. To check the alternator, started the car and unhooked the battery and the car died. So I changed the alternator, not really being for sure that was the problem. As soon I put a new one in the charge system light came on. Again that didn't make anything better. Drove to auto zone , died on at a stop sign wwouldn't start . All the lights went out like the battery was died. After about 20 mins I tired to start it and it started with help. Make it to auto zone and it died. No code read on the engine . Please help

2010 ford taurus limited, rear sunshade locked in up position. no response when hitting the button.

The noise is anytime the car is on, whether I'm in park or driving. Started as a squeaky noise whenever I turned the heater on, for about a week, and has progressed to a constant scratching sound. Basic diagnostics said no problems.

I start it back up, the light is off. I'll drive the rest of the day or even the next day before it comes back on again. Stopped at a gas station, the mechanic says it shifts ok. He said it could be a bad sending unit. I told him to unplug it if he could. Did he, NO. What might be the problem?

Pour something out every time I drive and then come home and park it. One guy told me it was head gasket and fluid was pouring out, not just leaking. Then sent me somewhere else to get fixed.

Car goes in 1st and 2 nd gear when drive turn like transmission in neutral

How much will a backdoor lock cost for my 2010 ford Taurus the door wont close cause the latch wont work

I have a 1994 ford Taurus. I have had it for about 5 months now, and when I start its.puttin like it's going to die. When I did drive ,it would start out fine,but a few minutes after the car would lose power, I could hold the gas to the floor and would still be going the same speed. Also made a scraping noise frequently while I drove. When I would pull over I would have smoke coming from the front of the car next to the radiator but I never saw the coolant. The temperature had never went about the middle. No sure what I need to do.

how to change the mpg on the cluster on the dash

It starts fine. I have never had it fail to start. This has happened only twice. All routine maintenance is current.

Owners manual doesn't have it.
Chilton's 96-99 has it in schematics.
Power box labelling inconsistent with actual box components/fuses. Last bank of box is totally omitted on my GL model. Could be one of those mislabeled ones? Or could be in trunk near safety cutoff switch?
