If you spray starting fluid (get this from any auto parts store or hardware store) into the engine air intake hose does it start? if so you will need to replace the in tank fual pump. Please let me know what you find and will supply more detailed help.

Im having the same problem, but yes it does run using starting fluid on mine, the car had a new fuel pump put on it a few months ago and ran fine and then i turned it off at a gas station and it wouldnt start back up, i got a fuel pressure tester, and while it was running off of the starting fluid it got up to 10psi, from what i understand, the pump should be between 35 and 50 or 55. my question is how is the best way to check the pump, and to verify that it has a good ground, or thinking outloud here, since i am getting 10 psi, that means the pump is running and the ground is fine, but that the pump is the culprit...... any ideas before i drop the fuel tank. this thing is full of gas (very heavy, ya know) thanks in advance

2001 ford taurus will not start after engine warms up. after cools down starts up fine??

Possible fuel pump. This is normal when a pump is starting to go on its way out! Once it is hot and the vehicle stalls out, push on the valve in the fuel rail to see if any fuel comes out. Looks like a tire valve in the engine bay. Be careful here as if it is good, there will be pressure there. Wear goggles when doing this!

2001 Taurus will not start when hot

check your throttle body sensor. The throttle body sensor opens the air intake. follow the air filter plumbing to the engine and it will lead you to the throttle body.

i recently had this issue with my 2001 taurus dohc engine. when you drive it seems that everything is fine. when you stop, the car will idle very low and somethimes shut off. there is a hose under the throttle body that is attached to the pcv valve. over time, this hose will collapse and eign to tear. i replace that hose (autozone for $10) and it solved my idling problem.

My 2001 ford taurus with the standard V6 engine (200,000 miles) has alot of trouble starting... The battery is just 2 months old, and the mass airflow sensor, timing sensor, and starter have been...

check compression on each cylinder and fuel pressure,I dont know if you have the tools,but for that engine whit 200,000 miles,I think the compression is down,at least you got to have 75 of compression on each cylinder.

On a ford taurus the check engine light is just a picture of an engine. Have it scanned for codes. Autozone will do this for free.

2001 Ford Taurus, Harmonic balancer removal

I had this problem and had to block the teeth of the harmonic balancer with a 2-ton hydraulic jack handle (use an assistant to hold) while I torqued on the bolt with a 4-way lug wrench and a length of pipe. Took a minute, but finally we heard the "ping" of the seal breaking and were able to remove that BAB.
