Just go to your local PEPBOYS or KRAGEN.. auto parts stores... they can look up in the computer system the make and model of your car. They should be able to tell you the amount you'll need. And if you're still not sure...

buy atleast 5 quarts semi-synthetic (check with store proper weight)
buy filter
when you haev drained ALL of the oil, changed out the filter putting the new one in first then putting in the oil pan drain plug.. please make sure you do both of these parts....

Now, Take ONE quart at a time and let them drain into your engine (fill cap on valve cover or otherwise noted) and after the third one... simply pull out the oil levl dip stick and look. It will tell you when you are in specs... the dip stick will read full (cold) if noted. Then drive for a day and check it again when the engine is hot it should still read within specs...You probably will need four quarts but some engines need three and a hlaf or four and a half... just be patient..

LASTLY just take it to jiffy lube... they've go the car manuals. When they're done and they are nice enough... just ask "How much oil DID you put in my car?" "thanks"

good luck

Show what fuses goes where on 2001 taurus


Hi,

The first place to start is the Ford 2001 Owner's Manual.

You can get a .pdf version of the 2001 Ford Taurus Owner's Manual at: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Owner/Page/OwnerGuidePage&year=2001&make=Ford&model=Taurus

It has instructions and guides for finding and replacing the fuses in a 2001 Ford Taurus. It starts on page 146-147.

Always use the specific Owner's Manual for the correct Model Year of a Ford or Mercury vehicle. I recently purchased a 2001 Ford Taurus, and had thought that I could use the Owner's Manual from a 1999 Mercury Sable from a friend. BUT, I figured out that each model year can be very different (before any serious damage happened.)

Good luck,

JB

Where is the radiator cap on a 2000 taurus


Well, if your vehicle was equipped with a radiator cap, it would be located on the radiator. However your vehicle does not have one. There is, however a pressure cap located on the coolant reservoir. This information is covered on page #150 in the Owner's Manual. (complete with pictures to show you where it is.)

If you do not have an owner's manual for your car, you can download a FREE PDF version at the link below.

Which relay is the a/c relay in the power distribution box on a 1999 Ford Taurus


You actually need the owners manual for that.. they are numbered under the cover and without the manual you are guessing. If you have a wrecking yard near by try them for a used Manual.

Check for the fuse and relay diagrams in the owners manual in the glove
box.If you don't have it,I'd suggest picking up a Chilton's Manual,at any
parts store. Good luck.
