    The water pump inlet hose, which is rubber on both ends but metal in between, (#14 on FORD hoses diagram) was leaking. I removed the old one and bought the new one. I am having a hard time fishing it in. The engine is 3.0 DOHC.
    How do I, or the easiest way to fish this rigid hose back in place

    Do I need to loosen the serpentine belt and start at the right side of car (the waterpump side)?

SOURCE: 99 FORD TAURUS DOHC - WON'T START. CRANKS, BUT

If it has fuel pressure and fuel to the regulator and the rails, the regulator is working, it is getting spark to every cylinder and the timing is correct, You have good compression, it is likely a faulty sensor. You can test each one with a sensor tester or ohmmeter/multi-tester

Relay or sensor.

Where it the thermostat located in this vehicle


Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5929960-s_thermostat . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

On the 3 liter engine, the thermostat is at the end of the upper radiator hose.

On the DOHC engines, it is at the end of the lower radiator hose.

If you have the 3.4 liter DOCH engine, you have to take the battery, power box, and battery tray out to get at it.

see pictures

Idles rough and than dies. runs good down the road. installed new spark plugs. ran diagnostic test, no codes. can u help??


I would check the ends of the medium sized rubber hose that goes to the brake booster from the inlet manifold, as well as all those pesky little rubber vacuum hoses that are used for pollution control. They tend to go hard and split where they connect to the metal piping if they are over 10 years old, allowing air / vacuum leaks into the inlet manifold which upsets the idle mixture causing rough idling.

How about just get a piece of auto hose at the parts tore and clamp it on there. A lot of rubber parts are not dealer items, just shelf items. There are a bunch of different hoses, some reinforced, oil and gas proof, high temp, rubber, nylon, etc, etc. Just get a good one of the right diameter. Hope this helps.

When my 99 ford taurus is in drive it revs but


Check your transmission oil...
Check it for...
1. Correct leve. (follow directions in manual)
2. Right colour should be light red or yellow (not Brown)
3. Smell, should be not unpleasant not burnt or bad.

If you find any of these things, the transmission is slipping, probably the forward clutch. Drain the oil into a clean pan and check it for black flecks of friction material, pieces of rubber, and metal filings.

This inspection will confirm the diagnosis of a failed transmission. If so, the transmission will need a rebuild or an exchange unit fitted..

Where is pcv valve located on 2005 taurus?


From the front of the car and starting at the throttle body, locate a large rubber hose coming out of the bottom of the throttle body, this hose comes straight down, then bends towards the front of the car. A plastic pipe connects to this rubber hose and the plastic pipe continues forward, then bends to the passenger side and dives under the wiring harness a few inches and connects to a 2" long rubber hose which is then connected to the PCV. The PCV is made by motorcraft; part # ev-243 or ev-268. Ev268 has a metal hose wraped around it; This is used for coolent on other models (not yours). Bend it slightly and pull it off. The valve has square sides. Use long nose pliers to reach under the wiring harness and turn 1/4 turn counterclockwise to remove and opposite to install.

I think Ford floated the PCV in space and then built the entire car around it. This is, perhaps, the worst PCV location I have encountered.

Hello Hans. A protector is what you have. Something strange about the dealer giving you this because if what you asked for was a filler hose then why did they give you a hose protector. Go back with because what you asked for was correct no other name for it. Hose is hose. Hope you kept the receipt if so they gotta change it for you. Cheers

Pcv


Under the wiring harness, which is under the fuel rail, which is under the upper intake manifold.
From the front of the car and starting at the throttle body, locate a large rubber hose coming out the bottom of the throttle body, this hose comes straight down, then bends towards the front of the car. A plastic pipe connects to this rubber hose and the plastic pipe continues forward, then bends to the passenger side and dives under the wiring harness a few inches and connects to a 2" long rubber hose which is then connected to the PCV.
You can see it actually. Locate the big coolant hose that is just above where the plastic pipe dives under the wiring harness, if you shine a light over the top of this hose and at a fairlt steep angle allowing you to see under the harness, you can make out the PCV.
