Sounds like the keyless entry system is on the fritz. You will probably have to get a new brain for the keyless entry system.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 Ford explorer. No heat but blowing

if you have the automatic temperature control or electronic air temperature control your problem is probably the air temperature blend control motor. you'll have to replace it. checked the linkage from the blend door lever to the control motor first. make sure it is connected properly. if it is, play sure finger on the lever and feel for the vibration associated with the clicking. if you can feel it, replace the control motor.

SOURCE: I need help changing spark plugs in my 2004 ford


You will have to remove the intake assembly to be able to remove the spark plug. You can also go about it from the ignition coil. To replace the spark plug, please follow the steps below to do so. You will be needing these instruments: Phillips screwdriver, Socket wrench, Spark plug socket, Anti-seize compound, Dielectric compound, Small screwdriver, then follow the steps:

  1. Disconnect the car's negative battery cable at a time when the engine is cool.
  2. Unscrew the individual ignition coil using a screwdriver and then remove the coil and set it aside.
  3. Pull out the spark plug wire at the plug end, grasping it by the boot and twisting it out; a special tool for this is available. Disconnect the same wire at the ignition coil.
  4. Clean out the spark plug's hole, using compressed air to blow out all dust, dirt and debris from inside.
  5. Remove the spark plug from the engine using a socket wrench with a spark plug socket; turn the plug counterclockwise to remove it.
  6. Apply a thin coat of anti-seize compound to the threads of the replacement spark plug. Make sure you get no compound on the plug's electrodes.
  7. Thread the spark plug into its hole, making sure you don't cross-thread it, and then tighten it with the wrench and spark plug socket.
  8. Coat the insides of the spark plug boots with dielectric compound; use a small screwdriver to apply the compound.
  9. Install the ignition coil and screw it into place.
  10. Repeat the above steps for each spark plug/wire that needs changing and installation.
  11. Reconnect the negative battery cable once you've installed all necessary plus and wires
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

You said the intake air duct is a large ribbed hard plastic hose but what is it attached too. i only found a soft ribbed hose

The engine on one end and the air cleaner filter box on the other. See typical picture of a Ford Taurus engine air intake hose.

What makes a taurus se engine shake at ideal but when speed up smoods out

Generally, this is caused by either a vacuum leak somewhere on the top of the engine or dirty fuel injectors. Listen carefully for a vacuum leak [sucking air sound] at or near the top of the engine. Another way to locate a vacuum leak is to spray carburetor cleaner [aerosol can] at small areas, where there are vacuum hoses or intake gaskets. When you find the area of the leak, the carb cleaner will get sucked into the leak. This will generally cause the engine to run better.
Try adding fuel injection cleaner to the gasoline tank. I recommend the Chevron Techron brand of fuel injection cleaner. Advance Auto and Costco carry this brand.

2002 ford taurus stall when coming to a stop but start up quickly i have no check engine light that comes on what can it be

check the air filter if its plugged it could cause the stall,check the throttle plate for dirt as this will cause a stall.the throttle plate is located in the intake were the air snorkel fastens to the intake manifold.if you look inside the intake you will see a gold coloured plate this is the throttle plate.if you get a can of intake/throttle cleaner and a tooth brush you can spray the cleaner and gentle scrubbing the plate front and back while holding the throttle open and make sure you clean the area around where the sides of the plate sit when the throttle is closed.this is a common problem on all vehicles.

Air conditioning

You can try either end,you will not damage it.My Ford has the correct intake on the left side,hood open facing engine.When you have the correct side,you should hear it taking in the coolant.If it only stays cool for a couple of days,there is a leak somewhere.

I'm getting an intermittent "growling" noise from under the hood on my 2002 Taurus. I've been told it's the "air conditioner clutch" and that the entire compressor must be replaced. Can the clutch (onlu)...

More then likely it's going to be your a/c compr clutch hub bearing, Napa auto parts stock's this item part # 5106WCC. The growling sound is the hub bearing, where your serpentine belt ride's on.

Where is pcv valve located on 2005 taurus

It is below the egr valve close to the intake manifold below the intake air sensor, there is a tube running to it from the engine to recirculate exhaust air with fresh air, there is a clamp holding it to the air intake that you need pliers to remove, then you need to turn counter-clockwise 90 degrees to remove, do the reverse to install. to make it easier to access remove the upper intake. The pcv valve is not visible, however, you can identify it by the 3" inch long rubber hose that connects to the steel line running into the bottom of the intake. I have the part and am going to replace it soon, although Ford really makes it difficult to remove it -
pcv valve is located just under the throttle body. remove air cleaner assembly from throttle body and you will see a u shaped hose running horizontally.
