Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
Car would not start one day when it was VERY cold outside. Got it running the next day after adding fuel treatment, so I thought it was just bad gasoline of my lines had frozen. Had the Taurus warm up for about 20 minutes before we set off on our trip. Did not even get one mile down the road and the idiot light for OIL illuminated. Car died shortly after - complete motor shut down. Voltmeter reads good battery. It sounds like it wants to start and there is oil on the dipstick - just a bit low, but enough. Looked at the fuses under the hood and the 30 AMP fuse labled "EEC Start" looks a bit charred, but there do not seem to be any broken contacts. The fuse for my Alternator looks good. Just wondering if anyone has an answer befor I go about removing my Alternator. Thanks.
Check the Belt Tension. If it is even just a little loose it could cause this Problem.
