Re: WAS GIVEN A 1991 TAURUS WHAT TYPE OF BATTERY SHOULD I...
I cant tell you off hand, but if you need a new battery, the auto parts store will be able to give you this info. Any cars battery will start the vehical, what makes battery different from one another is required cold cranking amps, and size. Your car does not need high cranking amps, depending on how cold it is were you live. Its usually size thats impotant. If you put a battery in your car that is to big, and the mounts for it cant hold it right, well, you'll wind up with a battery in your fan. Hope this helps. John...

The original problem could have been several things, including the key switch, neutral safety switch, security module, or something in the wiring harness. Someone will need to check for power at the starter terminals to diagnose the problem.
Hoses/belts/gaskets/seals could have dried out. Condensation in the fuel tank. Tires loosing air. Battery might be dead. The oil, and coolant have been just sitting. Have someone give a good look over and determine the best course of action.
the starting problem could be head gasket if it got really hot..... black smoke wouldn't be oil, and gas would stink but not black smoke if it's old, it wouldn't really matter if it had been sitting for 4 months. black smoke is probably caused by a gas mixture problem, or maybe a stuck fuel injector.
Try shifting the trans manually through the gears and see what happens,doesnt cost anything so,possibility valves are sticking in the valvebody after sitting so long,and manually shifting the car will force some of them to stroke in their bores unless REALLY stuck.Could also be shift solenoids.Scan for diagnostic trouble codes.A bad solenoid will have set a trouble code.Just FYI,1991 was the first year Ford went to all electronic trans,i had a 91 Sable.
