Question about 1995 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

The car is overheating.

I had no problems with car until 10/30/09. The car was parked and got hit by someone. When I returned to the car it wouldn't start. I had it towed. A chip needed to be replaced as well as the taillight replaced. On November 11, I drove the car, stopped and coolant leaked out. On November 13, the car began to overheat. Now I turn on the car and it immediately goes to red. I have filled it with coolant.

It sounds like it is a hose leaking. And the coolant is not getting to the block of the engine.

Is the serpentine belt still intact? The grinding noise maybe the water pump which would account for the overheating.

Astro van won't shift into gear


My van wouldn't shift from park into gear in the parking lot at work. I had to have it towed. They replace the switch that is spring-loaded to the brake pedal. When you press down on the pedal, that switch pops out and allows you to shift gears. In this case, the spring didn't release so the van wouldn't shift out of park. They replaced the part but I still had the same problem (did they really replace it?). I took the part out, sprayed with WD40 and it's been working great for years.

This is kinda funny please don't judge me I was


This sounds like you may have broken a transmission line or damaged the transmission pan. the oil has leaked out of transmission that is why it will not move,

Do not start car until you have repaired the leak, running the engine will damage the transmission due to low oil in it,

you will need to add 2qts of transmission fluid then jack up the front of the car and look for the leak, if you do not see it then have someone start the car and look, you will be able to see it leak out, i thing it will end up being the pan, good day.

I recently bought a 93' Grand Prix, it's only 130k


If it acted like it wanted to start, then I would suspect the fuel pump. Try hitting the bottom of the tank, this sometimes jars the pump to start working again. If it works you can drive it, but you will need to replace the pump, it will only do this so many times.

Fuel gauge doesn't work. went on vacation and left nissan parked with all but empty fuel tank. When I returned and filled up, the gauge wouldn't register. Stuck???


Hit the top of the dash with your hand. if not you will have to check the wiring before you can tell if it is the fuel gauge or sender in the tank. This is not a commen problem.

Well, if it is doing all of that, the Check Engine light has GOT to be SCREAMING at you! Continuing to try to force the vehicle to operate under such conditions will only cause further damage to the vehicle. I would recommend getting the thing to where you can scan your onboard computer and find out what is going on.
