Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
The car started with the engine light coming on. Then the battery light would come on and off. Then the gas hand started going lower than what gas was in it. Then after that you would have to press the gas peddle to get it to start, was making a ticking sound when you would press the gas,then it over heated and now wont start at all. It wanted to turn over but just wont crank! had to pull home. Checked spark plugs and they work great. The battery just wont keep charge and put several in it. Drains them as fast as you put them in but the alternator seemed fine. The oil isn't milky so we dont think it's the head that cracked.
Sounds like that battery and alternator may be bad. The car will not run if the voltage is too low.Most autoparts stores will check for free....
