Which of the many hoses?

No diagram under the hood?

Price range to repair what?

A repair shop has no idea what they are going
to charge you, until you pay to find a problem first

No price or nothing to fix until you find something

SOURCE: PCV valve location

if i know what you are asking, look at where you put your oil in. on the valve cover to the top right should be a plug with a tubeing runs to your air clear tube where the air mass sensor and carb is located. i think that is what you are looking for.

SOURCE: Squealing Smog Control Belt in Humid Climate

I will list some of my experiences with similar problems.

V-belt quality and grade vary a lot and I do mean a lot. Belts can take a set from sitting--anybody with a table saw will attest to this. I would try a new belt first after finding a good parts man. A good alternator shop (rare today) can help here. The smog pump belt is an easy one to change. Try the cheap stuff first.

Smog pumps in my experience do not need a lot of power, especially at idle, but I have had bearing and pump failure on several wipe out a belt. Pull the belt and spin the smog pump by hand.

Belts can glaze and it is not necessarily noticeable. Stamped-steel pulleys polish smooth and won't transmit the power needed. Pulleys can also wear in some strange shapes so a new belt does not fit properly. See if an alternator shop has a cast iron pulley for the alternator. Cast iron does not polish smooth and also wears off any glaze from the belt surfaces. The crank pulleys are stamped-steel but are larger in diameter with a longer wrap angle so slippage is not a problem there.

In my poor days I tried sanding the belts and pulleys to remove the glaze. Too much work and it was only temporary.

I have used a cast iron pulley on a 110 amp alternator with a winch load. A stamped-steel pulley would just smoke the belt when under load (winch drew 225 amps total!). My truck is 70 amp and that is the biggest alternator Ford has with a V-belt that I know of.

I considered removing my smog pump and associated hardware. My experience has been to leave everything intact unless I can replace everything with an earlier, non-smog engine. Doing everything piecemeal has just caused other problems.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Where is the vacuum hose located on my 2000 ford

the main vacuum hose is at the main intake frame at the top of the engin


but the vacuum lines for the vacuum systeme are more than one which one you main.
any way use this methode to check for leaking hoses.
A small piece of vacuum hose (1/4-inch inside diameter) can be used as a stethoscope to detect vacuum leaks. Hold one end of the hose to your ear and probe around vacuum hoses and fittings, listening for the
"hissin'g" sound characteristic of a vacuum leak.

(It's quite common for vacuum hoses,especially those in the emissions system, tobe color coded or identified by colored stripes molded into them. Various systems require hoses with different wall thickness, collapse resistance and temperature resistance.

When replacing hoses, be sure the new ones are made of
the same material.

Often the only effective way to check a hose is to remove it completely from the vehicle.

If more than one hose is removed, be sure to label the hoses
and fittings to ensure correct installation.

When checking vacuum hoses, be sure to include any plastic
T-fittings in the check. Inspect the fittings for cracks and
thehose where it fits over each fitting for distortion, which
could cause leakage.
. Warning: When probing with the vacuu hose stethoscope, be careful not to
come into contact with moving engine components such as drivebelts, the cooling fan, etc.

Getting a code for smog pump


better check that info again. inspect belt routing diagram and vacuum diagram for thermactor pump and thermactor air system parts being present on your calibration. to my recollection there was no thermactor air used. where would they put all that plumbing?
pump, diverter valve, exhaust check valves, upstream and downstream air tubes? a ford has a label on the radiator support depicting the usage, hose color, and general vicinity in a schematic for ford technicians to identify. there is also a belt routing diagram that depicts the pulleys for the components. you dont have one...right?
you may have a code glossary for older vehicles. get the right manual at the library for free and restart diagnosis. or goto the emissions authorized repair facility and get the question answered after a quick self test

Where is the fuse located for the secondary air pump for the 2000 Ford Mustang 3.8


Hi there:I suggest to check on the Power Distribution Box, that is located in the engine compartment.The power distribution box contains high-current fuses that protect your vehicle's main electrical systems from overloads.

DTC P0171 - System Too Lean (Bank 1)This DTC is very similar to P0174, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.


A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty
    Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor
  • Possible cracked vacuum or PCV line/connection
  • Faulty or stuck open PCV valve
  • Failed or faulty oxygen sensor (bank 1, sensor 1)
  • Sticking/plugged or failed fuel injector
  • Low fuel pressure (possible plugged/dirty fuel filter!)
  • Exhaust leak between engine and first oxygen sensor


Possible solutions, a lot of times, cleaning the MAF sensor and finding/fixing vacuum leaks fix the problem. If you're on a tight budget, start there, but that may not be the fix for certain. So, possible solutions include:
  • Clean the MAF sensor. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace/repair as required
  • Inspect all hoses and connections in the air intake system
  • Inspect and/or test the intake manifold gaskets for leakage
  • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure
  • Ideally you'll want to monitor short and long term fuel trims using an advanced scan tool
  • If you have access, you may want to run a smoke test


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

2000 FORD TAURS ERROR CODE P0401 CAR WONT START


I have a 2000 Ford Taurus with 168,000 miles on it. after a tune up I also had the check engine light come. I looked for answers and took it upon myself to change some of the obvious things. I replaced the EGR valve and the vacuum solenoid. Still wouldn't clear the code. Found a site (Link at the bottom) that said it is the EGR Pressure sensor that is the root of all these darn codes. It's located between the intake and the firewall. It has a connector and 2 rubber hose connections. $35 bucks later and what do you know...all fixed, now I can smog this thing. wish I would have found this info sooner. 2000 Taurus

1995 ford taurus vacuum solenoid located


Another case of the the person asking the question not giving enough information. What engine does your Taurus have? There are several different vacuum solenoids on this car.
If you are referring to the Canister purge solenoid [emissions system], it is located in the vacuum hose going from the Carcoal cannister, to the engine. It will have 2 vacuum hoses & 2 electrical wires [in 1 plug] attached to it.

Check engine code 2001 ford taurus p0401


usually caused by clogging or bad valve. Valve can fail by clogging, torn diaphram, or bad/loose vacuum actuation hose.

Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system - insufficient flow detected

Causes: Hose leak/blockage, basic setting not carried out (if applicable), wiring, EGR valve, EGR solenoid, ECM


Your EGR valve should be on top of the engine in the front between the intake manifold and the pulleys. It looks something like this:


382f71b.jpg
First, make sure the vacuum hose is good and run it down to where it connects to the intake manifold to check for any leaks. If that's good and you want to get your hands dirty, take the valve off and see if it's clogged. clean it and see if you can actuate it with vacuum (put a vacuum hose on it, ****, and see if it will open. Also, look to see if there is gunk in the line and intake where it connects. Clean out anything you can with carb cleaner.
If you can get it unclogged and the valve is working, put the valve back on with a new gasket, else buy a new one ($40 at autozone :o( ). If you solve the issue, the engine light should clear after a couple hours of driving. OK?

My ford truck failed the smog test because bank 1 and 2 are to lean ( p0171 & p0174 )


possible solutions are, a dirty maf sensor. remove manifold air flow sensor and clean it with maf sensor cleaner. you can buy a can at any auto parts store to clean, take off and clean maf sensor, do not touch inside of sensor it is very fragil. when cleaning sensor be sure it is dry before installing it back on vehicle. also check for a vacuum hose leak downstream of maf sensor.make sure air filter is clean. this usually takes care of the problem. po171 and po174 are the same. you can use electrical cleaner to clean sensor also. also check for a dirty fuel filter and fuel pressure, if needbe.

Usually a high NOx reading on gasoline vehicles is caused by a bad catalytic converter on your exhaust. I would suggest having this checked out before you try the test again. Hope this helps.
