Hello there
First i would have the fuel filter and fuel pump checked and changed if needed
Next i would have the injection system cleaned
and than i would suggtest a full tune up ie plugs & wires distributer cap and also check the pvc valve and the egr valve if they are not working properly this will cause a vehical not to work properly
if you car has the sparkplug wire power packs i would check them to see if they are damaged somtimes moisture will get in them and short them out so the will not let the vehical run properlyok?
I hope that this has been very helpful for you
Best regards michael

My 96 Taurus GL has an electrical short somewhere, The radio works on & off , the defrost is out,The speedometor works only every so often, when the lights are on it starts giving me a clicking sound...

sounds like you may need an alternator... theres not a short< your just losing battery power and the steering wheel being hard to turn is probably your engine cutting out... also it could be a seized up pully or a/c compressor...

My 96 ford taurus is leaking somewhere under the valve cover it looks like a hose or somethin that goes under the valve busted it only leaks when it get hot but other than that it runs fine. what could...

LOOK CLOSELY along the valve cover area and there should be a metal tube.....this feed the heater core fluid, and it can corroide and leak....either replace the tube or replace it with one piece of hose....I would get the correct part..but both works....GL

96 taurus, washer pump motor will not run.

It is most likely another faulty pump motor. They never were anygood to start with. If you are buying aftermarket then try an OEM. If you had a testlight you could unplug the terminals from the pump and use you testlight there to see if it is getting voltage with the switch on or if you don't have a testlight, you could unplug the pump and run two wires from ground and a close 12 volt wire that you know of to the pump and see if it runs. If not then it is the pump. If it does run then it is the switch.
