The cam syncro will cause that noise . Listen for the noise near the back of the intake . I have replaced alot of them after someone else replaced the belt and pulleys for the noise. Good luck.

SOURCE: Taurus stalls while slowing down (low RPM)

Most likely Idle air control valve fault. Usually wont set a code unless it has a short or unplugged. There are some test that can be performed with a high end scanner but with out the data not much you can do.

When the belts age they dryrot like tires, Twist the belt upside down and bend slightly, You will likely see cracks, Just replace the belt and you should be good to go

SOURCE: My 2004 Taurus has chirping

YES. Very common problem. The cam sensor driver unit goes bad. (Usually called a "Cam Syncronizer") Squeeks like crazy, causes hard starts, poor fuel mileage, usually destroys the cam sensor itself, and will cause catalytic converter damage if not fixed promptly. (You will find broken, rusted pieces inside the assembly if you take the sensor off of the top)
Complete kits (Made by Dorman) are available at most parts retailers. It will look similar to this:

How do I disarm anti theft device on a 2001 ford taurus


SEE THE STEPS WITH CAREFULLY AND COMMON SENSE:God bless you
Press the unlock button on your vehicle's key fob to deactivate the alarm. If you've misplaced your remote for the car, use the PATS programmed key to unlock the driver's side door. Then, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. The vehicle's battery should be on, but the engine shouldn't be running.

  • 2 Locate the override button on the alarm box, beneath the driver's side of the dashboard. Press the button and hold it in until the alarm beeps one time. The LED light for the alarm should stop blinking, indicating the anti-theft system is disabled.

  • 3 To reset the vehicle's alarm, put the PATS programmed key in the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position. Press the override button. When the alarm resets, it chirps two times and the LED light begins blinking.

    Jaguar xJ6 X300 The electric seat has stopped working . I can hear the two relays clicking on the left hand side of the driver chair so assume the fuse is ok . Any ideas on how to fix it .?


    the motors stick ( freeze ) i have heard that disconect the battery for an hour helps with this,and you may need to reprogram everything after..

    Open the boot lid and drivers door, and switch on the ignition. Rock the valet switch, in the centre console, 5 times. The system will chirp to indicate it has entered learning mode.

    On models with seat/mirror/steering wheel memory functions, the first remote will be linked to memory 1, second to memory 2 etc.

    Press the larger, lock, button of the remote. The system will chirp to confirm it has got the signal. If it doesn't receive any signals for 15 seconds, it will chirp twice and exit learn mode.

    To programme further remotes, rock the valet switch once. The system will chirp twice for remote number two, three times for number three etc, then press the lock button of the remote as above.

    When finish, wait 15 seconds for the system to time out and chirp twice, turn off the ignition, close the doors and boot lid and the job is done!
