SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Taurus Antifreeze boiling over

hi, the problem you are having is down to one of a couple of problems, now as you state the air blows cold then this points towards the thermostat not opening so this then dont pump the coolant round the engine resulting in the top half of the being hot and the bottom half cold so this is why you only get cold air.

so the first thing you should do is get the thermostat changed.

you also need to bare in mind that the problem could be a damaged water pump this does happen from time to time so check for any signs of water leak where the water pump is by the timing belt, if their is no signs of leak then the thermostat is the likely cause.

you also need to think that as the engine has over heated this could have caused the head gasket to fail so this will need looking at to if after changing the thermostat you have the same over heating problem.

so replace the thermostat as this has clearly gone and then when you re-fill the coolant make sure any bleed screws are undone if you have any on your coolant system usually located in one of the top hoses running around the engine, (not all coolant systems have one as many are self bleeding so dont worry if you dont see any bleed screws) now when you start filling the coolant up make sure you only trickle the coolant in to prevent any air lock building up in the system.

if you are unsure what you are doing then please leave this to someone who has some idea of the kind of work involved in this type of repair

SOURCE: rattling noise when cold start. noise dissapear

You problem is most likely just lifter noise. This is common with a lot of Ford engines with self adjusting lifters. Although lifter noise is bothersome it doesn't pose a serious problem. Unless your engine starts to miss or your gas mileage drops way off lifter noise is just an annoying problem.
I would recommend that you add some Sea Foam Engine Treatment($6-$8) to your oil. This is not an oil treatment it's more of an engine cleaner. If this works you'll need to add it every 2nd or 3rd oil change.
If this doesn't take care of the problem then depending on your engine you may have adjustable rockers that would allow you to remedy the problem. If not, your options are limited to living with it or replacing the lifters and possibly other valve train parts.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Taurus - rattle in front while driving

Hi Donna,

This year and vehicle are notorious for having suspension links fail due to corrosion. Look under the front end, there should be a short rod (sort of dog bone shaped) that connects vertically on each side. If one or both failed, you'll have a thumping or rattling sound. They're not expensive or hard to change. If not this, there could be any number of issues, especially on a 10 year old car. Wear items include ball joints, wheel bearings, struts, etc.

Good luck.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Check your fluid levels on the car. One may be low and causing that sound you hear. More then likely, it needs a tune up. Change the spark plugs, wires, coils, coil pack, and distributor cap. Change the air filter and the fuel filter. Check for vacuum leaks on the engine. Change all your fluids. This will help your car a lot. Spark plugs will help your gas mileage a little, as well as the lack of power. This will help your car greatly.

1997 ford taurus have to give it gas to start it


From your description of the problem The first thing that comes to light is the idle air control valve.
This devise is mounted near the throttle body and controls the airflow past the throttle plate when the throttle is closed.
There isn't a position sensor on itso if it becomes sticky it won't turn on your check engine light.
It's a fairly common problem. I have tried in the past to free them up but it never seems to work out well.
Hope this helps you along to a repair.

99 Ford Taurus service engine light flashing


That sounds like a good start. Especially if they are old plugs and wires. But the best to do is go to your local auto parts store and see if they will plug it into an obdII code reader to see if the car shows any codes.

You can always just try plugs and wires first if you want.
