Leaking transmission on 2001 ford taurus

Need more info. There are 20 places the leak could be coming from, the lines, which is usually the culprit, the pan gasket, the output shaft seals, input shaft seals, case center seal, pressure sensor threads, etc. park the car and put a piece of cardboard uner it and see where it is coming from in relation to the layout of the car. If its up by the radiator, it is the lines that connect to the radiator, you can usually cut the bad part out of the line and slip a rubber hose over the two ends, put two hose clamps on each end and it will last a while, but if the line is leaking, the whole thing should be replaced

When to change timing belt some say 100,000km

most manufacturers recommend a timing belt change at 100.00 klms as this is the optimum period that the belt manufactures warrant their product for
there are factors that will reduce this period such as continued high rpms, dusty conditions, idler bearing failure and oil leaks
Oil is the biggest destroyer of rubber timing belts and it comes from cam shaft seals , hydraulic belt tensioner leaks and crank shaft seals
basically if you keep an eye on the cover and look for oil and dust marks then any time after 90.000 klms would be an ideal time to consider the belt change

At cold start my rpm goes to 2k then to zero and stalls during driving the rpm will rise to1k or more

My '04 Taurus did the same thing a while back and it was due to a baked O-Ring that seals the intake manifold runner control to the manifold. Google; Intake Manifold Runner Control O-Ring 2001 Ford Taurus. Those O-Rings are available at Ford ($11) or a Harbor Freight Tools for around $1. If you wanna cheat on the job (don't tell anyone I told you this!) just clean all around the control on the right rear of your manifold, then glop on some silicone sealer all around it where it mounts to the manifold and give it a few hours to dry.

1988-1993 ford festiva leaking oil around the crank pulley... could the oil be coming out of timing chain seal... are could it be a the seal on the crank shaft.. if so would i need to removle the engine to...

This sounds like the crank seal, the engine doesnt have to be removed, in order to get to seal is like replacing the ttiming belt, and once in the timing belt i would replace the crank and cam seals, also do the timing belt, and maybe the waterpump, you will need to remove the crank pulley and then the timing covers then align timing marks for timing belt before ou remove it, with timing belt off the crank pulley then slides off the crankshaft and the seal is behind it, the cam shaft gear unbolts and the seal is behind the gear, once the gears are off then you will be able to remove the seals from the engine,heres a few diagrams to help. good luck and i hope this is helpful,60d826b.gifca916fa.gifcb2cb5a.gif

R & r info. on front seal and crankshaft seal. Car is leaking lots of oil up to two quarts per day

Front crank shaft oil seal is located behind the crank shaft pulley (A.K.A. the harmonic balancer). If you look from under the car at the bottom pulley on the engine. It will be very wet and oily. This is not an easy job to replace the seal for the inexperienced.

Rear transmission leak

it sounds like you have a tail shaft seal gone in the transmission it's not a difficult fix if you are handy. Remove the drive shaft and remove the tail stock seal(there are install and removal tools but a hammer and a screwdriver will remove it nicely)then replace with new seal (if you don't have the install tool a 5" long piece of 2x4 and a hammer works BE GENTLE!!!!)and reinstall drive shaft..........these seals are available at your local auto parts store and are usually no more tan $10.00
hope this helps!.........good luck!
