Question about 1998 Ford Taurus

1998 ford tuarus se won't start

Driving down interstate went to take a left turn and car just died.no lights came on, no noises, had to have towed home. Now I have checked battery and alternator, and they are working fine, checked starter and when I tapped it with crow bar and hammer, it started working fine, when I turn the key it makes a click noise (only one) but will not turn over. all fluids are fine, checked hoses and wires, could you lead me in the right direction? I have a similar problem.........battery recharged, it started, drove down the street and came home. cut the car off and tried it again, it started. let it set overnight, to drive to work the next morning, turned the key, click...........instrument panel, lights all went out and engine didn't turn over. Alternator is new.

    first car...see if you can turn engine by hand. Second car...check battery connections at bot ends of cable and have battery load tested.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

I have a 1998 4wd automatic toyota 4runner and it won't start. The engine turns but won't "ignite" the engine light and A/T oil temp light appear on dashboard. any suggestions on what to check


Hi Nikki, What oil was low? Was it engine oil or gear box oil? Did the engine overheat? what exactly happened? Did you hear any strange noises when the engine stopped? Was the vehicle towed or was it on the back of a recovery vehicle? If it was towed, at what speed and over what distance? What engine is fitted? Is it petrol or diesel powered? Give as many details as possible to help us help you. Regards John

My 2001 La Sabre coolant fans will not kick on... Recently overheated and checked the relays - what else could it be?


Maybe your thermostat is bad, stuck inclosed....this would boil water before the thermostat and not get to the temp control for the fan, also, ckk bottomhose for collapse.Have you ever changed hoses? Ever put in new thermostat?. They do go bad.

at the minimum, since you mentioned all the idiot lights coming on, your alternator is fried. have someone put in a new alternator. if it's still acting up, have someone go over the computer.
