Question about 2000 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Surge ONLY when trasmission engaged

Ok, Here's a problem I haven't EVER encounred, nor read of anyone having it

2000 Tarus SE Wagon 3.0L FFW

Problem: While in the 'drive' or reverse position, the car will suddenly surge (and rpms will increase) in about a five second intervals ... I actually need to hold down the brake so it won't proceed to gain (about 7mph)

Now for the 'catch' -- This problem ONLY happens when (what I have explained above) AND the blower motor ON, but only in DEFROST or A/C mode .. When it 'vent' or 'floor heat' .. No problem - Park and Neutral.. No surge

Any clues ??

What may be happening is
when you have your a/c running you are putting more stress on the motor.
in these times cars are electronic all the way through.
the control box with monitors what the car is doing. it is over compensating for the a/c and being put in drive at the same time
a new age car the motor will increase its power slightlet to compinsate for things happening eg. put in drive, a/c compressor being ingauged, or high drain electronics such as a rear elecrtronic demistior.
you may be able to take it to a modern car mechanic and have it all reprogrammed if this dose not work your mane icu computer may be on its way out
hope this helps

Location of coolant sensor 2000 ford tarus station wagon 3.0 liter v-6


Not sure I follow you.
The engine temp sensor sends a signal to the engine computer and the computer decides when to activate the fan relays. So if you have power to the fans you would also have power to the high or low speed relay the temp sensor is probably working. There is a third relay for the ground circuit.

95 Legacy Ls Wagon all-wheel drive does not work.


Check the awd fuse first, if this is ok then it is likely to be in the transmission the awd section is seperate to the rest of the trans, it has its own solonoid pack which can be a problem. Take to a trans specialist for an accurate diagnosis if the fuse is ok. If the fuse is missing come back to me for further info
