Is your taurus already equipped to handle the new type of refrigerant (it's called R134a)? If it is not then you need to buy a conversion nipple which will fit over the existing fitting on the vehicle. This is most likely the issue.

    All cars equipped with R134a have the same fitting, additionally all cars with R12 refrigerant have the same fitting although it is different from the fitting for R134a. This means that the hose you used to fill the chrysler was a R12 nozzle hose. In short, yes you will need to buy a new hose. Virtually ever parts store and even stores like Wal-mart carry these hose which is required for your taurus. Just made sure the hose is indeed for a R134a equipped vehicle. A good number of refrigerant packages (which include the refrigerant and hose) also include adapter fittings. Feel free to post any additional questions and please do not forget to rate me. Thank you

2003 Chrysler Town & Country, put in new alternator, now have 2 lights on including battery and one looking like a pump. Radio won't work.

The reason the battery light is on is that the charging system voltage is below the battery voltage, this means the charging system is not working correctly, since you already replaced the Alternator for I assume the same problem, unless you got a defective rebuilt (which is poss if bought from Autozone or one of the other discount parts stores) the charging system problem is not the Alternator but lies elsewhere in the electrical system. Use a volt meter and check the voltage at the battery cables with the engine running at high idle (at least 1000 RPM) the voltage should be at least 13.4 to about 14.2 Volts DC. This is also most likely the cause of the light that is on that you say looks like a pump due to the low charging system voltage. As to the radio it is in theft lock, this happens anytime the battery is disconnected, you will need to enter the unique security code for your radio, if you are not the original owner this may be a problem, as the little card with the code and the instructions to enter it often gets misplaced. You will likely end up at the dealer who can access the Chrysler factory computer and retrieve the code, there may be a charge for this.

2001 Chrysler Town & Country, 129K miles, may need alternator pulley and key. Anyone have experience with this? Will I end up needing a new alternator after all? And what's a reasonable charge in a...

may be better off just replacing the whole alternator unless just the pulley is bad. If just pulley is bad should be a simple fix & fairly cheap as well. Are you having a charging issue? If so stop by your local "Advance Auto" where they'll test your whole charging system for free & probably refer you to a good mechanic as well! Good Luck!

2000 chrysler town & country.had alternater & battery checked they checked ok but alternator aint charging battery.someone said loose ground where would would i look

It could be a loose negative cable or corrosion INSIDE the cable.
There is a main alt fuse in a black plastic case under the hood marked "FUSES" check that.
I would need to know what the alt is putting out at idle and at driving speed.
I would also need to know the battery state of charge.
Make sure your alt belt is not slipping.
Please let me know what you find.

How to replace a water pump on a 2005 town & country. What would a dealer charge?

around 450 dollars. It varies from dealership to dealership. Call around and get a basic qoute as most shops will tell you that they need to see the vehicle to be able to give u a better quote. Most items replaced would be the coolant, thermostat, water pump,hoses(most will if the hoses are really "soft"), and all associated gaskets.

You need to check that the alternator is charging the battery.. If you have a voltmeter check it at the posts.. should be about 40 amps.
Along with this check battery cables.
