Might check your antifreeze, or thermostat might not be opening. Probably need to replace it.

My 1996 3.0 2v taurus gl is overheating without the thermostat. my dad said it may haave a second one. does it?

Only 1 thermostat. You should be able to feel the pressure in the upper hose if the pump is working. Compression test to check for cracked head/blown headgaaket, are the cooling fans work I g...lots of possible causes.

1996 ford taurus is overheating and smoking both ends...what could cause this?

Make sure your cooling fan is working properly. Let engine idle and when the temp goes up make sure it kicks in. You could also try changing your thermostat. This controls the amount of coolant going through your engine. If it is not opening it is not allowing coolant to cool your engine causing it to overheat

Coolant level is ok, had leak and overheating problem earlier, but fixed. While driving down the road one day, we hear a click sound and now have no heat coming from defrost, nor any vents. Please help,...

Most of the time when you loose heat it is low coolant if this is not the case change the thermostat and feel the heater hoses after the car warms up they should both be warm if not the coolant control valve may not be getting the vacuum to open it or the valve itself may be stuck or bad.

Overheating engine in 24 valve 96 ford taurus 6 cyl

the thermostat can be easily changed from up top, the T-stat is located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose under the flange the hose connects to. Make sure u follow manufacturer's cooling system bleeding procedures when you refill after the T-stat is changed out.
