Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
Recently, I have had problems restarting my 2001 Ford Taurus, after I have been driven it for a while. I first noticed the problem when doing errands around town. I start the car and drive to the first destination or two and car starts / restarts (sometimes a bit sluggishly). Once car seemed to warm up, it became harder to start. When i turn the key, the engine cranks VERY SLOWLY as if the battery is dying/dead. If i try to restart 2 or 3 times, i get no engine cranking noise at all. Last week, i went to get gas after driving about a 1/2 hour on the highway. When i went to turn the car on, NOTHING. If i turn the key 3/4 of the way, the lights come on, the radio comes on, the windows can be put up and down, but when i turn the key to actually start the car, i HEAR NOTHING. The key turns to the end. After sitting about 20 - 30 min. the car will restart. The battery was replaced in November when i got the car (as was the air filter). I just had some work done at the dealership (including new gas cap) but have no idea why this is happening.
Try this put some STP gas treatment and checkout your fuel filter which is under the car in the frame on the passenager side and checkout the drive belt if all of this fails have the alternator tested and you would know if its the alternator cause driving at night most of the lights would stay on the dash cause the car would be running off the battery and most of the repair you are having now are easy check out this website it www.autozone.com if they do they will have diagrams and pictures showing you how to repair your car and check on parts and prices at the same time there is www.taurusclub.com i hope i have been some help to you Michigan Man.
