Network with coworkers, friends and/or neighbors for a person that can replace the waterpump at their house. that's what i did and i saved big bucks. by the way keep a couple of gallon containers with water in your trunk. do not let the temp gauge go pass half way point to hot. if you see this happening pull over and shut the engine off. have some gloves avaiable and rags. open the coolant resouver, not the radiator cap and add water to it. also get that water pump changed out asap. it's cheaper than replacing the engine. my water pump cost me $300 just for the pump. beats the cost of another engine which would be several thousands of dollars. Good luck.

My 2003 ford taurus overheats when driving around town, stop & go, but on highway temperature goes back to normal


I had the same problem with my 99 ford taurus. My ford taurus did exactly did same things that your vehicle is doing. runs cool on the freeway because the air is going through the radiator and cooling the water down.I checked the cooling fans, radiator and hoses for leaks also replaced my thermostat. nothing solved the problem. turns out that the new antifreeze does not come with a lubercant property any longer. you have to buy the lubercant additive separately and then add it to your cooling system when you replace the antifreeze. the lubercant protects your freeze plugs, water pump, radiator, thermastat from rusting out. Meanwhile because of the absents of the lubercant, my water pump impellers rusted out and dissolved. so the water pump had no fins to circulate the water. Luckly for me, I discovered that my car was still under warranty due to an extended warranty I had purchased when I bought the car. ford dealership replaced the water pump. Problem Solved.

2003 ford taurus overheating


ok check these things #1 check for leaks at the radiator #2 water pump for leaks#3 check for freeze plug leak#4 check to see if your cooling fan works#5 check to make sure the water jug is not leaking#6 fill the radiator with water then start your engine and try to see if you can tell if the water flows,if its not flowing check the thermostat,now you can check the thermostat by putting it down in some boiling hot water if while in the hot water it contracts its ok but i would replace it because it is work to go back to do so,check your radiator cap also,now if the fans are the problem then you should change the coolant temp sensor for the fans ,now i hope after making these check you will be able to solve the problem

Is there a weephole for oil and one for antifreeze or just one weephole for both on the water pump of 2005 ford taurus


It is very unusual for oil to run from a water pump, but you can get a leak from the grease that lubricates the bearing. If you do have what looks like oil or grease, you probably need a new pump.

My ford taurus 01 is leaking coolant. I already replaced the water pump, and still leaking. How can I find where the leak is at? I need the repair manual. I was told it has 3 water seals besides the water...


Go to your local auto parts store and rent a coolant pressure tester, it's a hand pump with a radiator cap on the end, so you simply install it instead of the radiator cap, pump it up to about 10psi and visually look for the leak, should be easy to find. If that fails you could also try a dye test, ask about it at the auto parts store for more information.

Problem with my 2000 ford taurus water pump.


I just had that same problem with the antifreeze leaking and I thought it was my water pump but I pulled the antifreeze tank off and it was cracked all along the bottom and that was causing the antifreeze to leak out real bad so I went to a nearby junkyard and found a new tank and replaced the cracked one and now it works just fine with no leaks. I hope this works for you liked it worked for me.
