Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

Heating and car problems

Hi, I own a 2001 Ford Taurus SE. I just bought the car from carhop and haven't had it for 3 months. There are several problems that I am noticing wrong with it. First,off everytime that I go over a bump it rattles underneath the tires sounds like something is lose under there. 2nd I have no heat. The heat blows fine out of the blowers and also if I ride in it for a certain amount of time it seems to get hot.One of my friends said that it is probably engine heat which is not good.It's not the thermostat because it is not running hot I have coolant already in the car not sure what it is Also,when I am driving on the freeway and as I speed up it starts to pull like it is trying to catch up to speed. I don't know much about cars but I think it might be the transmission because that light is on in the car every time i start it up. another thing that is puzzling is that everytime I out the car in reverse it immediately starts to take off. You know how mosy cars when you put it in reverse you can easily take your foot off the break and slowly give some accleration and just back out. I literally have to let my foot stay on the break because it just takes off when i put it in reverse.Not sure what that is about. If you can give me some insight into this that would be great and also if you can give me some pricing also that would be great..thanks

I know from being in the past used car sales garage sometimes thermostats are removed so car can sell fast without seller facing large cooling system fees! you should check and see if you have a thermostat in it!!!!!

I have a 2005 Taurus SE. For the last few months now on a cold start, I must turn the key on but not thru to start until the bells and buzzers quit, then turn it to start; other wise it will just crank...

this is just a sugestion and in no way meant to answer your problem, but this sounds suspiciously like the the problems that used to occur with the neutral saftey switches on the older taurus.
