Sounds like plastic clicking when i accelerate in my 2000 ford taurus lx . Also the battery indicator light comes on and at the same time the temperature gauge goes haywire. What could this be???


Looks like you have an wiring issue.
Battery light comes on and stays on, indicate your alternator is not charging the battery.
But the light goes out and temp. light come on.
And im assuming the its not over heating.
you need to see an auto electrican to diagnose the wiring issue

'94 Ford Taurus-No Heat?


Good point. Solving it will probably take more time than money.
Thermostats and heater cores do not work one day and stop the next. If your engine warms up normally and doesn't overheat, the gauge reads normally, engine is at normal operating temperature after about 10-15 minutes ...all these point to a good thermostat. It is working right and should not be a problem.
To check the heater core, wait till engine is at normal operating temperature. Turn heat setting to high, then feel both heater hoses-both should be hot. If both are hot the core is circulating coolant and is not a problem. If only one is hot (which would be the inlet hose) the core is not circulating-could be an air block or the core is plugged up and will need replacing.
If heater core and thermostat are good, then it probably is the temperature blend door in the heater case. The door actuator is probably vacuum controlled. I don't know how difficult it is to troubleshoot on your Taurus, but check if vacuum controls are working right from the dash controls, check if the blend door is stuck, is broken, or if the vacuum control is working to open and close the blend door. When you want heat, the blend door should let blower air pass across the heater core.
From the engine you will have a single vacuum hose that goes through the firewall into the dash to the heater/AC controls. There, a pod like device can rout the vacuum signal to various doors on the heater case.
Good luck.

Ford Taurus idles low and takes 3-4 times to stay running on cold days


Some of these models have 2 temperature sensors. One makes the dash gauge or light work and the other works the engine controls.

The one that makes the engine controls work acts like a choke. It speeds up the rpm and enriches the fuel mix for cold starts. This is why you are having more problems in cold weather. You can see which one operates the dash gauge and then change the other one. Hopefully once you get the temperature sensor reporting to the engine management module, everything will work again.

The headlights on my 1994 ford taurus sedan are too dim. Even the high beams are not bright enough for safe nighttime driving. Also, the daytime running lights are always on the high beam position. I even...


the lenses are most likely clouded over? yellowed? sometimes you can buy a kit to polish them, but I would recommend replacement, polish doesnt last long, and you will need to replace them anyhow. the DRL lights are operating normally

No heat...Needed new battery


Well #1 with the gauge going to hot and no heat,10 to 1 it's a bad thermostat, stuck in the closed position.If you drove it like that for any length of time, with it hot, other things can get damaged.Change the thermostat, then have the alternator checked to see if it's charging.The meter should read 13 to 14 volts or more.

Ford Taurus


I had all the same symptoms, would crank, but sometimes not start, guages would not come up immediately, and sometimes several trouble/warning lights would light. Also, my computer display settings would change. I also noticed that some of my radio setings would change too. Well, when I recently replaced my weak battery (original factory battery), all of the problems/symptoms went away. So, it was either the weak battery, or disconnecting the battery reset/fixed some kind of computer glitch? I think it was just a bad battery all along. Have your battery checked, even though it cranks, it may be delivering low current/voltage which affects the computer and other electronics. Hope this helps!
