Question about 1992 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

My elderly neighbor's 1992 Ford Taurus will not start. The battery is good and there is a 'clicking sound' that can be heard (when the hood is up) from the engine compartment, but nothing happens at the key. What can we check before taking it to a mechanic? Thanks.

First start by cleaning off any corrosion on the cables with a wire brush to ensure a good connection from the battery. After cleaning make sure they're tightened securely. If that doesn't solve the problem it's most likely his selenoid or starter could be bad.

1998 ford ranger...was charging battery, started hearing a clicking sound...neighbor said he heard a small pop and now nothing...any help for what to check


Ford use to put a fuse-able link at the battery end of the cable that feeds the fuse box, these were replaced with maxi fuses, again mounted near the battery, sometimes in a plastic box. If everything has gone off that sounds like the problem.

My eldery neighbor pulled the dipstick tube out in a 2001 ford escape where does it go back in


Actually, the dipstick fits into a metal tube and that tube can be found (usually) at the front or side of the engine. The tube diameter is approximately equal to the width of the dipstick. There aren't very many tubes under the hood that match that description

1992 taurus died while i was driving and doesnt start but cranks


The sound you are describing is the fuel pump. When you first turn the key to the on position, the fuel pump pressurizes the system. This could be fix by replacing the fuel pump or even something more simple like a fuse to they fuel pump relay or the inertia switch that some vehicles are equipped with has tripped, which in this case, it's usually located in the trunk, behind the carpet, on the sides of the vehicle. It will have a small button that can be pushed back in. Hope this helps direct you in the right direction and good luck!

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.

1992 ford taurus has high idle all the time


Hi idle with no "check engine" lite , indicates a vacumm leak. Check all hoses for cracking or disconnection. Sometimes with engine running, you may hear a "hissing" coming from somewhere under the hood. Good luck. Moe
