My taurus dumped its transmission fluid

This is caused by an overheated transmission, the overheating is caused by an internal failure of a severe overloading of the transmission like towing.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus SE 3.0 V-6 4dr. I was told it has 3 catylytic converters that are all stopped up. I found a burnt vacuum hose behind the motor and replaced it but not sure where it goes

this car is a nightmare mechanically,i had a 2000 taurus and it isnt worth a nickle, if you arent paying on it get it running and dump it, from the heater core to theheads cracking to the transmission it will haunt you with issues, fixed the same vacuum hose on mine never knew where it went, good luck

1999 Eldorado- does not overheat, but dumps coolant under car sporadically. I have heat too. Can see nothing from top side but when it dumps it comes out center of car under motor. Seems to dump when...

Hello: There are two metal pipes on the back of the engine thar carry the coolant from the driver side of the engine to the heater core and back to the engine. It is possible they may be rusted out. Also it could be head gasket failure, When it comes out check the coolant overflow tank on the passenger side under the hood and see/hear if it is gurgling. The overflow tank hose may be stopped up or it could be the wrong radiator cap. Hope this will give you a place to start. The radiator cap should be rated at 15psi

I have a 2000 ford taurus ses my radio, tape player, cd, and dash clock all stopped working the fuses are all fine what else can it be?

You might try testing the power that leads into the insturment panel. You can remove the hole radio assembly by bending a wire coat hanger enough to get it into the two holes on the sides. When you pull it out, you will have depressed a couple of clips. The power switch is connected to the left side in the back of the unit. Hope this helps.

1996 Ford Taurus transmission "dumps " fuild

There are no guarantees when it comes to a rebuilt transmission or anything. They usually have a warranty for the work all depending on the mileage afterwards. Is it over it? Most likely the gaskets need replacing and the bolts tightened again.
