As far as the engine light goes, you can try going to an autozone who will scan it for free. Make sure you write down the codes and definitions. If you get misfire codes, replace the plugs. The rear plugs can be reached just by reaching around and under the intake. If its something else, repost. Once the repair is made, have autozone clear the codes again. The squeek is called the camshaft synchronizer, which is very easy to replace, but if done wrong, the vehicle won't run correctly. The part with a new cam sensor should be about 125 at a dealer, 40 dollars online.

My 2006 Ford Taurus sel engine almost stalls when turning the ac on sitting still and not giving it fuel. Also when u turn without giving it fuel.Is this my AICV?


It is actually an IAC Idle Air Control and yes, they get fouled and can do this. That might not be the whole issue though.

Do you smell gasoline fuel ?? When there's too much fuel, it saturates the spark plugs, preventing ignition. Let it sit for an hour to let spark plugs dry, then it starts OK later. Next time, turn starter without giving any throttle or very small throttle as engine turns. Myself, when my 2006 Dodge Plymouth minivan (sitting in storage) needs to start, I squirt (half second) starting fluid into air filter, close the air filter housing to trap flammable gas from starting fluid, then turn the engine without pressing on throttle. When the engine starts is when I give it a little throttle to bring up the RPM to 2,000 until it idles on its own without stalling from cold engine.

2004 Taurus has started making a squeaking noise, and it does not seem to involve any of the belts. For several weeks the dashboard trouble lights keep coming on when I start the car. If I turn the...


3.0 OHV engine?

This is going to sound wierd but with the engine running and the noise preset stand in front of the vehicle and put your forehead on the intake manifold. If you hear the squeak in you right ear than it is the CMP shaft making the noise. Over time the bushings in the shaft wear out and the shaft will squeak and sound just like a belt squeak. eventually it will get bad enough that the engine will start to hesitate if not stall.

The easiest way to replace the shaft is by removing the upper plenum. The reposition the harness exposing the shaft/sensor. It is located on the drivers side of the engine right below the throttle body under the wiring harness that runs by the rear valve cover.

The shaft and sensor are available in the aftermarket.

The shaft is similar to a distributor shaft and will need to be in proper alignment. I can give you more detailed instruction if you decide to replace it yourself.

Taurus stalls while slowing down (low RPM)


Most likely Idle air control valve fault. Usually wont set a code unless it has a short or unplugged. There are some test that can be performed with a high end scanner but with out the data not much you can do.

My 2002 Ford Taurus will shutter and die when running the air conditioner and sitting idle at a stop sign or stop light. When I turn on the air conditioner the rpms will fluctuate up high above 2 and then...


the idle air control valve is responsible for engine idle.
this is a common failure on ford's. but I don't think yours is bad because it does idle high befor it dies.
you stated you had codes p0171 and p0174 these are lean codes for bank one and two, you said you found a vacuum leak and repaired it, the vacuum leak was mostly likely the cause of the lean codes, however the pcm has calibrated the fueling stategy for this lean mixture, what you need to do is erase the KAM "keep alive memory" this is done by unhooking the negative battery cable for 60 seconds, this is the only way to erase the KAM the $6000.00 machine I use wont even do it.

once the KAM is clean the computer will go into a relearn state and all operating values will be adjusted for the vehicles current condition, during this relearn session the vehicle may have some driveability issues (low or high idle, stalling, poor fuel economy) the relearn should complete within 10 minutes of idling and then 10 minutes of driving.

good luck and keep me updated

Loud noise in front left tire 2004 Ford Taurus SES


You mentioned the noise was from the left (drivers side) front. The compressor is on the passenger side in association with the engine compartment. Question, once the noise starts does it continue while stopped or only while moving?

I hear a sound like the fan belt sqeaking, I know there is only one belt and that belt is still on . first it made a sound like a tire was leaking air then i heard the sqeaking under the hood


belts can still sqeak even though they are still on, check the condition of the belt, is it craked?, glazed? spray some silicon spray on it while its running and see if it goes away. the belt driven accesories can also make noise, alternator, steering pump, water pump, idler, tensioner, a/c compressor. use a long screwdriver like a stethescope and see if one belt driven acessory makes more noise than the others, just be careful of moving parts.

I would have the front brakes checked and from what you are telling me you may have a warped rotor I do not know how many miles are on the car some cars have a reset after the oil change has been done to turn off the check engine light but if it keeps coming on take it to autozone and they will put it on a tester for free and then you will know what needs to be done
