Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
Most likely this is a heat problem. There are several exhaust shields for the Catalytic converter and pipes. Over time these parts can fall off due to rust or idling in Traffic. If you drive in a Metro area, sitting in Traffic will overheat the parts.
There are some aftermarket products used for wrapping Headers. They are a Flameproof cloth which you wrap around the nearby exhaust pipes. Or look at the underside of your car for missing parts. You may want someone who has seen other Ford Taurus' as they would know what is missing.
Another possibility is overadvanced timing. Ask a Dealer for any Service Bulletins about your problem. Even though your car is older there may be some info. With overadvanced timing the starter is fighting more compression than normal.
