1996 Ford Taurus will not start. The car has power and gas.


spark coils are located on top center of the engine under hood. wiggle connections and see if there are any loose. If you can not find the coils, follow the spark plug wires back from the spark plug it will lead to the coil. good luck

Service engine soon light on a 1996 Ford taurus. I just had the brake line replaced 2 weeks ago because it had completely rusted out


when this light comes on it has nothing to do with the brakes it is an engine diagnostic faluire you must use an odb2 reader to read the codes see what the problem is and or reset the light! good luck!

Ford Taurus 1996, coolant comes out throughout the cap every time when car stops


You will overheat the engine if losing coolant.Firstly replace the cap with a new one,Is the engine temperature normal when you stop ? If its over temperature it will still blow out coolant. Check the radiator for blockage of the tubes & ensure the fan belts and water pump are in good order. Worst case is a blown head gasket can test for combustion gases in the coolant

1996 ford taurus. The check engine light come on.


the check engine light just means you are not meeting emissions. not a biggie. go to an auto parts store that does a free scan and get the fault code before spending any money.

Check the fluid as recommended by Ford. Do u have the owners manual? It will give the procedure. I'm quite sure your Taurus trans fluid is checked at operating temp w/ engine running, in park. U can also check the dipstick, Ford usually has the procedure engraved on the dipstick. The reason for checking the fluid as Ford tells u to, is because their method will give an accurate reading. As u can see from checking the fluid in 2 different ways, u got totally different readings.

welcome to the world of owning a ford. after about 130,000 miles your check engine light will come on and stay on unless you reset your comps. but will come back on if the problem is real or the sensor is bad. see ford has it set up so that do it your selfers like me still ahve to pay them money some how. only ford can sell you a new sensor, and only ford knows where it goes. take it to a ford dealership and have the run a digagnostic on your car i bet uit's just a bad sensor.
