    Worn belt sounds like the problem with the noise after a heavy rain, but why will it not crank?

    sounds like a worn or improperly adjusted drivebelt.

Worn belt will slip over the alternator pulley instead of properly turning it then, it won't charge the battery. This condition happens gradually unlike a broken belt or a failed alternator or battery becauser some charging is going on, just not enough. The noise you hear is the belt slipping.

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.

2004 Taurus hard to start sometimes


Sounds like low fuel pressure. I would have the pressure checked with a gauge. Could be a faulty relay or pump.

If Th engine doesn't crank have the battery and battery cables checked for condition and corrosion. If the engine cranks and dos not start then have the systems control computer scanned for fault codes and have the fuel pressure checked.

I let my 2000 ford taurus sit for 6 weeks and now it wont start


place a screwdriver or metal object between your ear and gas tank. Have helper turn key on but dont actually crank. you should hear the fuel pump buzz for approximatey 2 seconds each time you do this. This is the first step in solving this problem. If the fuel pump works, post again.

I dont know why you would add oil if its full??? You need that checked out ASAP. I hope you have the old oil filter. a lawsuit may be in order. The incorrect filter may have damaged the engine.
