Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Air condition noise

I have a 2001 ford taurus SES, V-6. After replacing the battery, alternator and starter, whenever I turn the a/c on, I hear a screeching nose, it goes away as soon as I shut off the a/c. The serpetine belt was also replaced. Any ideas?

Either the belt tensioner is going bad or the compressor or clutch is going bad. Is the belt tight? Check the deflection in the belt if it is to loose replace the tensioner. Also double check the belt part number and make sure they sold you the correct length belt.

2004 ford taurus ses turns over barley one short time,makes no noise when ya turn it over.Battery is full charge,lights are bright and dont dim when ya turn key


I don't think any of the previous answers came from a qualified technician. heres the deal: starting the car has nothing to do with the headlights, it cant be a bad fuse because like you said it turns over once, the alternator has nothing to do with the starting of the car, and fuel pump wont keep the car from turning over.
follow these steps in order
FIRST, take your battery to an auto parts store and have it checked, even if it shows a full charge it can still be bad.
if the battery test good, clean both battery terminals well. starting the car requires a lot more energy from your battery then the headlights, so even with bright lights there could still be an issue with the terminals.
if the car still wont start, check the battery cable itself for corrosion, if corrosions present replace the cable.
next check the ground wire from the battery to the frame of the car. make sure it has a clean connection on the frame.
if these are good and still wont turn over, then replace the starter.

Ford 2001 taurus battery dead and ticking noise and something running all the time


Where is the "ticking" noise coming from?
Sometimes, a weak battery has enough power to run the air-conditioning fans, but not enough power to run the starter-motor.

Car wont start when cold have replace starter switch battery and altenator and starter, have used grismer tire and repair with no fix yet what am i not doing right


You would change the fuel filter, crank sensor and run a can of fuel injector cleaner in a tank of gas, you may also want to remove the Throttle Body cover, get a can of carb cleaner and spray the heck out of the TB do this while running throttleing it, dont let it idle, it will die out on you.

Keep in mind that the starting problems typically come from problems with the battery, starter, fuel pump, or ignition. Checking these things in your Ford Taurus can be done with a few automotive tools. Once you have isolated the problem, you can decide to fix it yourself or take it to a professional:
1. Place the key in the ignition and turn to the "On" position. The dashboard on your Taurus should light up. If it does not, it indicates that there is a problem with your battery.
2. Open the hood of your Taurus and check the battery for corrosion or loose connections. For corrosion, clean the connections. Tighten any loose connections. Attach a voltmeter to the battery. The red lead goes on the positive terminal and the black on the negative. On a Taurus, 12.5 volts or better are needed to power the car, and between 13.8 to 14.5 to run the alternator. If the voltmeter shows 12.5, then the battery is okay; if it is between 12.5 to 13.8 then the alternator needs to be replaced.
3. Turn the key in the ignition. If you hear a clicking noise, your starter is faulty and needs replacing. If there is no noise, the ignition switch could be the culprit.
4. Turn the key in the ignition on and off for three seconds, then on again. Listen to the Taurus. In a Ford Taurus, the fuel pump operates for only two seconds. When the key is turned on, you should hear a sound similar to a growl or "rrr." If you do not hear the sound, your fuel pump is not working properly to send fuel through your car.
5. Remove a spark plug from your Taurus and lay the wire to a metal surface. If there is no spark, the engine is not igniting properly, and you need new spark plugs.

The battery on our 2001 ford taurus sel keeps being drained.


Hi,

The problem should be from your alternator. The alternator charges the battery when the car engine is turned on. So, if your battery is being drained always, then it means your alternator is not charging the battery.

Have your alternator tested, in order to be sure its in good condition.

Best regards.

2004 Taurus will not crank


Does it crank with a jumpstart?

If so, then have the belt to the alternator checked. Do you make short trips? It may just take that long for the battery to discharge enough to not crank the engine.

Starter on a 2001 Taurus


1. Do you hear a clicking when you turn the key trying to start the vehicle? If so, then it is usually the starter solanoid.

If not...

2. Do you have power? Turn on headlights and try starting the vehicle. Do the lights dim? This will indicate a battery problem. If the lights do not dim, this indicates a strong battery.

3. Is the engine turning over but will not fire up. If so, do you have gasoline? Check for spark will be the next thing to check.

Good luck.
