Unfortunately if you ran it out of oil while driving it and it stalled it's probably seized and you are in need of a rebuild or a new engine.....sorry for the bad news :(......six

    yes it's unfortunate but true in the future if you ever see a red warning light come on your dash stop asap and have it may be nothing but it may be a big problem!
    good luck!

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus that won't start,I ran a compression test and found all cyl between 65/95 psi what would cause the loss in compression.

as the pressure should be around 150 psi , there are several reasons for this
bent valves or no valve operation from a broken timing belt is the first suspect.
badly worn rings
rings with no tension from an overheated engine
the first thing I would check is the cam shaft not turning

At cold start my rpm goes to 2k then to zero and stalls during driving the rpm will rise to1k or more

My '04 Taurus did the same thing a while back and it was due to a baked O-Ring that seals the intake manifold runner control to the manifold. Google; Intake Manifold Runner Control O-Ring 2001 Ford Taurus. Those O-Rings are available at Ford ($11) or a Harbor Freight Tools for around $1. If you wanna cheat on the job (don't tell anyone I told you this!) just clean all around the control on the right rear of your manifold, then glop on some silicone sealer all around it where it mounts to the manifold and give it a few hours to dry.

I have a 2001 Ford taurus, it was running rough at times, then ran well for several days, then could hardly run it was missing so bad, and dyed, found water in oil and on oil filter, could you hlep?

Hello! The chances that your vehicle needs to have the Head Gasket replaced are high...I'll give you the labor figure shortly...Drain the oil...Replace the oil filter, the PCV valve and the gas off the radiator and see what you have...Small amount of money commpares to the following...6.2 hours at approximately $100/Hr. to do only one side...Both sides=8.2 hrs@ $100/Hr....If inexpensive fix does not work the head gasket (one or both sides) will have to be replaced..Shop around...Guru...Saailer

That sounds like a pump... the oil pump is inside of the engine. You need to drop the oil pan to gain access - however, you will need to pull the motor to do that.
