SOURCE: what is the spark plug gap for a 2004 ford taurus

look on the inside of the hood and around the engine compartment for stickers... one of them should have the information you need on them.

SOURCE: Can't get to the spark plugs in a 2003 Ford Taurus

I am assuming you have the 3.0L Duratec engine. Although the job seems daunting, it's actually easy to remove the upper half of the intake manifold plenum. This took me about 40 minutes to remove the first time I did it, and leaves the rear three spark plugs wide open.

A good repair manual such as the Chilton's manual for the 1996-2005 Ford Taurus has the step-by-step. You should get a new set of intake plenum seals (from Ford or most auto parts stores, which may have to special order them) along with the spark plugs. The seals are a set oval rings made of silicone rubber. Yours may not need them but if you damage one getting the plenum off, or if they have shrunk with age, you'll be glad you got them. They're about $16 a set.

The intake manifold is very easy to pull off this vehicle, i strongly recommend replacing the intake gasket when doing so. Cannot find aftermarket repair manual however you can get a ford one of ebay hope this helps

My '97 ford taurus isnt kicking over while tryn to start it up


Anything done to car, or happened recently that might affect this?
If starter fluid doesn't work, and starter is cranking normally (too fast may point to a timing belt broke, too slow may mean battery run down and not producing sufficient spark), there's still a problem in your ignition. Pull a sparkplug or two. After cranking a little they should be wet with gas. Check for compression while a plug is out: hold your finger over plug hole when cranking. You should feel pressure buildup and release over and over as long as cranking.
A properly timed engine needs spark, fuel, and compression to start. Keep reviewing your procedure. Something is not right.
You may want to have the computer scanned for possible trouble codes. Check plug wires for proper routing. Were plugs gapped right?

2001 ford taurus with the 3.0 after sitting a few hours when i go to start will crank and crank and crank for what seems like ever, will start easily after that but when i go to start it for the first time...


Its not the oil, increasing temperature will thin out the oil. If it cranks easily but won't start it could be the spark plugs or the spark plug wires. When they heat up, especially if they are old, they won't perform well. Pull off one of the wires and hold it close to the plug, try to crank the engine and look for a spark. If it sparks them try removing a plug and check to see if it looks wet. If its bone dry it might not be getting fuel.

2001 Ford Taurus - won't start. Cranks really good but engine won't start. Tested with good battery, fuel pump, plugs & wires. Car was driven daily. All of a sudden just didn't start no more. I was...


George,
Lots of possible choices... but junk yard coil as a replacement (easy for you to do) can eliminate that potential problem for just a few dollars.

If that fails, have a friend help you confirm that you have spark - by pulling a plug wire and holding it against (near) a good ground. If it sparks over 1/2 inch - it is not spark.

If that fails, pull a plug wire off a spark plug. Crank the engine for 10-15 seconds. Now remove and inspect the plug for gas wetness. If wet, it is not fuel flow.

If that fails, it could be timing, timing belt, or a large number of other issues - most cheap to fix but time consuming to locate.

Do the above tests then come back and let us know what you find!!

1992 Ford Taurus wagon not starting, but turns over


You might have a problem with your crank sensor or ignition. Remove spark plug wire and check for spark while turning engine over. When this happens unplug crank sensor near crank pulley then plug back in to see if it starts if so replace crank sensor.

2000 Ford Taurus 6 cylinder with the alternate


i would check the fuel injector o # 5 cyl... if the injector is leaking it will foul the plug out and cause a skip. the next time it happens remove the plug and check for wetness. you may also be able to put a fuel pressure tester on, if so install the tester, turn the key on 2 or 3 times leaving the key in the on position at the end, do not crank the engine, watch the tester for a minute or so and watch for a pressure drop.

Yes you should remove all the old fuel,it starts to breakdown and burn correctly,also it sounds like the cylinders are saturated with raw fuel,pull the spakplugs so the fuel will evaporate out,replace or clean the spark plugs and you should be good to go.

93 oldsmobile quad 4 2.3 one piston is not working wet spark plug


If you have a stethoscope, listen to the injector while the vehicle is running, it could be stuck open. If you hear it pulsing the same as the rest of the injectors, then unplug it, let the engine run so it can get all of the unburned fuel out of cylinder (you said the plug was wet), take the plug and coil from cylinder number three, install them in cylinder # 4, put the coil/plug from 4 into 3, reconnect the injector, and see if the problem moves to cylinder three. Next if the problem does not move to cylinder 3, then you have an issue with either the wiring to the connector at cylinder # 4, or you have a mechanical failure. Remove the valve cover, check the valve springs on # 4. make sure they look the same as all others. If so, turn the crank and further inspect them. If they are mangled, remove the head. It needs to be repaired, and check the piston for damage. You could also do a compression check to rule this out.
