Question about 1995 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

Electrical I just bought a '95 Taurus SHO. When I step on the gas pretty good, the battery light flashes in synch with all of the climate control display and the headlights. It's a 3.2L Auto with 151,000 kms (94,000 miles) on it. Also happens while cruising if I turn the blower fan to full.

Sounds like your alternator is starting to go out.More them likely it's going to be an internal regulator, need to have an alternator test done on it, something any repair shop or parts place can do for you, that will let you know for sure.

First check the alternator drive/serpentine belt and make sure it is tight and not worn out. Replace it if it is cracked or glazed. Clean the battery cables and battery posts. With a voltmeter check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. If you have less than 13.5 volts the alternator needs replacing.

When I get this code on my Ford Escape it is because who ever filled the gas tank last didn't lock the cap down properly. Have the gas cap tested and replace if it fails. This is a minor vacuum leak but because it is minor it is difficult to find as well. Check all your vacuum lines for damage or leaks.

If the fuel regulator is seeping gas, replace it first. There is a good chance the diaphragm has a hole in it and is feeding fuel through the vacuum line directly to the intake, causing extremely rich fuel mixture. (Hence the strong exhaust and burning eyes) As a matter of fact, if you pull the vac line off and turn on the key, I bet fuel sprays out. Be careful not to start a fire on a hot engine. Once you get this repaired, erase the codes and retest. You could find yourself with only one code, maybe even none. I wish you luck. Emissions can make you pull your hair out.

check the solinoid, also see if all the connections to the battery are good and in working order. Ensure the post on the battery are tight. Could also be your relay between the starter and groound. Good Luck.

Will it stall if you keep your foot on the gas like the Idle speed is set low? Possible Idle speed motor? I'll have to look up the location of the low coolant sensor.

your best bet for a diagram is to ask for a suspension printout at your local dealership. Or take a look under any 86-95 Ford Taurus SLO, SHO, or Sable and they use the same design (the SHO just uses slightly different parts. Here is a link though for a SHO parts list with part numbers. Hope this helps.

Check the power cable going to the starter. If even a little bit loose it may cause your problem.
