coolent is fine,is this a sensor problem?
No slow shifting nothing. still full of fluid but the fluid will not heat up when i let the engine run but it reads full. Looks clean as well. do you think i need to change fluid, someone even told me speed sensor i dont know. its a beautiful car the engine runs great i hate to junk it out. any help would be appreciated.
It caught on fire?
The temperature guage appears to be working well and the car is not overheating at all. We have filled the coolant resevoir and the radiator with anti freeze and we cannot find a leak. The heater does eventually warm up, but only after about 30 minutes of driving and the warm air quickly goes away when stopped at a stop light, then warms back up while the car is moving.
light flashes fast there is also a clicking noise from fuse box area. when i giggle or disconect the neg battery cable and reconnect it will start and run for a bit. im thinking the battery cable or the pcm relay. any suggestions
i took it to a shop they told me i needed a head gasket and they said that it would cost 1500 just to start on it i was wondering if one of the sealers would help it
My Taurus needs to be jump started. Once started I can only drive a mile or two before the car overheats and dies. Once cool, I have to jump start it again to get it going, and the process repeats. I have replaced the water pump, thermostat, blower resistor motor switch, lower hose from radiator to engine,and still the same issue continues.
The check engine light is on.
The low coolant light is on even when the coolant level is actually full. Any ideas from here?
sounds like a ball bearing rolling around loud to start then quiets down but still aduible

When I was driving my belt broke and it knocked the crank sensor wires down and now my transaxle like is flashing and I replaced the belt had replace crank sensor but now I think I have to replace the wires because the wires were burnt out.
We changed the power steering pully,and the water pump. The Idler pully looks like it's at a angle to the engine and the belt walks then shreades. We have a wreaked 2004 Taurus for parts. Should I change the A/C clutch pully or the Idler???
2001 taurus se fuel relay fuse number. And is it located under the hood or in the interior.
when I step on the gas - my speedometer climes up to like 40/50 but I know i'm only going 25 or so...my rpms goes way up and then way down...if i step on the gas to quickly my car jerks...also going up a steep hill...it will slow down and it's like i'm not getting any gas - but all my lights and everything are still on. I don't think it's the fuel pump - i just had that replaced a year ago and it has under 12,000 miles...
Where would the relay switch be under the hood for the fuel pump? I have no owners manual and the net has PDF that doesn't get specific.
Thanks
Could it be a fuse, and, which fuse would it be?
I am in Michigan and it has been below freezing. Would a frozen fuel line cause the pump to not work?
Thanks
