Ford Taurus - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Does this engine have a cold start mechanism? I would check that out since it appears to be the source of the problem.

The most likely causes of a hot running engine are the following:

1. low antifreeze level in the radiator and cooling system.
2. fan not turning on at operating temperature.
3. restrictions in the cooling system such as sediment build up.

Water pumps usually leak when they are bad, and can cause an overheat because of low coolant level.
Check whether the water pump is leaking after topping off the coolant level and running at operating temperature, and then shutting off the car's engine.

Symptom indicates your losing pressure on the fuel rail which indicates the fuel pump is cutting off. Put the ignition in the "ON" position and then test the pressure on the fuel rail. If there is no pressure or less than 35lbs of pressure on the fuel rail with the key in the "ON" position the fuel pump is faulty. If there is more than 45 lbs of pressure on the rail you have the same problem and the safety is killing the fuel pump to prevent damage.

How hot does it get in degrees F? Does the cooling fan turn on? Is the coolant boiling over?
As far as your temp gage, maybe you have air in the system? I would think as far as you have driven, if you didn't bleed the system, it should have worked it's way out?
You could have combustion gasses getting into the coolant because of gasket issue?

The heater core might have a blockage or the inlet water valve may be stuck. The thermostat on the engine may be stuck open as well.

Check your fuses. There is sometimes a separate file for each headlight. One may be about to go out and need replaced.

I see that you replaced battery, coil, plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Did you or do you have a check engine light or SES light on? If you did not I agree with the problem being Anti theft which includes a replacement key not having a transponder chip. BUT at the same time it could be something as simple as dirty battery post or bad battery cables, since sometimes it does start. I RECOMMEND CHECKING THE BATTERY CABLES FIRST. let me know if this works for you.

My personal suggestion would be to go for these repair catalogs. I know this website that i used to
get manuals from, and they have all models online.
I also brought for my 1989 BMW, such old model, they had it and it was very good manual. Go ahead, I bet.
