metal flakes on the dip stick are not really an issue unless it has gotten to the crank sensor. That would cause the problem that you are talking about. The oil filter is supposed to catch that though.

Car never reaches operating temperature (cold weather) thus little to no heat inside

change the thermostat, sounds like it could stuck open and wont allow the engine reach operating temp, also test the constant control relay module located to the right of the battery as your facing the front of the car, also test coolant temp switch it might be defective and producing a high voltage that would cause the fans to constantly operate no matter the temp. Hope this helps

2006 ford taurus hard to start when below 10 degrees

Most vehicles are hard to start anyways in that type of extreme weather. I would have your battery checked to make sure it is holding a full charge. Then future steps might involve checking the alternator...

I have a Taurus which turns on occasionally....doesn't start in the cold

Have you changed the spark plugs lately? Usually hard starting in cold conditions is caused by worn spark plugs.

02 taurus will not start since cold weather

Hi, there could be several issues that could cause this, When the cold weather strikes everything changes, Oil thickens up and if there is water in the fuel it can freeze and no fuel is being pumped, Also it could be a mechanical issue now that was just intermittent and now has stopped working completely, like you said the car wouldn't start 3 times this week and now nothing at all. Your best bet is to take it to a local garage and let them take a look at it, when it comes to starting there is a lot it can be. They have diagnostic machines that can check all the sensors electrical on the car and narrow down the issue a lot faster than trying to figure out what it can be by replacing part by part..

My 1995 tauras tranny is slipping

Is the trans fluid level correct? Low fluid can cause the symptoms you describe. The level should be checked with the engine at operating temp and the shifter in park or neutral. Transmission rebuilds are extremely complicated, usually require special tools only available from the manufacturer, and not something to attempt without training. If you really want to attempt it yourself the full procedure will be available in the workshop manual. Your local ford dealer may let you copy the relevant pages, or you may be able to find a pdf copy online, or your local library may have trans rebuild books.

Cold weather starting 2000 Ford Ranger

I would check the Air Charge Sensor. This sensor measures the temp of the air charge going into the fuel injection system, when you truck is cold it requires more fuel and less air, if this sensor has gone bad it would lean out your fuel mixture as if the vehicle was already warm.
