if its a 4v dohc 3.0l it could be the water pump that driven by the
bank2 camshaft... the impeller inside the pump comes aprt and they overheat

Overheated, now won't run

If the head gasket was blown by overheating, it could have ruined the engine bearings, which could keep it from running.

This problem is commom with the ford taurus. to check for a blown head casket ; you can pull your spark plugs and check them to see if any of them has moisture on them and also while the plugs are out turn the motor over and see if there is any water any any ofthe cylinders; But no you dont have to pull the motor out. i just went through this with my taurus it wound up costing me around $800.00 . getting the heads checked and resurfaced was the most exspensive part. i done the work myself so i didn't have any labor cost to put out other than the work on the heads.

1998 ford taurus overheating the hose from the water pump appears to have no pressure in it. Is this due to a failed water pump?

More than likely the radiator cap is defective and not holding pressure. Replace it first and see if if solves the problem.

1998 ford tarus over heating

There is a lot more to the cooling system than the radiator and thermostat. 97 and 98 taurus' are prone to cooling fan failure. They also have issues with the coolant turning to a rusty colored sludge that can plug the radiator, and it let go long enough can eat the fins off the impeller in the water pump even cause it to break free from the shaft.
