Leaking head gasket. Try barsleak you can get at any car store, it may work short term but eventually you will have to have one or both head gaskets changed. To see which side it is remove the spark plugs and look for the one that is discolored from the rest.

Blown headgasket. The white smoke is burning coolant.

My 1997 taurus is smoking from the tail pipe


Is water coming out the pipe? If the smoke is white, you may have water in the engine. It is not a good sign.

Knocking, overheating, blowing white smoke from the engine (front and back under the plugs), I think the heads are going, any other ideas or things to check?


White smoke tells me coolant is getting into the cylinder's, blown head gaskets or crack heads, have a block test done.

Po443 code 2002 ford taurus


That code is for the Evaporative Emissions. It could be a bad Evaporative Emissions Canister Valve or just a bad vacuum line or my granddaughter's 1997 Ford Escort had that code and her gas cap was NOT on. Now when you figure out what one it is disconnect the battery for 10 minutes to reset the computer.

Overheating '97 Ford Taurus


make sure thermostant is good. most important is to make sure you didnt blow a gasket when it overheated, if you have a 3.8 engine those are famous for blowing headgasket. anyway have a block test done first, its a liquid they use to see if exhaust gases are entering the cooling system, good luck ,hope this helps.

Engine service light / 4 codes read description below


P1744 is probably the TC going on the way out. :(

P 340 is probably the sensor itself. Don't get the Dorman one if it is the OHV motor.

P 401 is probably a bad DPF EGR sensor.
