Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

Open Question

2001 Ford Taurus, 3.0L 6-cyl, 92K miles, recently exhibits hard-starting problem when starting per Owners Manual. Typically it starts first thing in the morning, but after driving and then letting it sit for one to four hours, it may not start promptly. Per Owners Manual, turning key to off and waiting 10-30 secs to try again has eventually started the engine (so far). Weather is not cold. Dealer-installed battery is new (7 months), battery connections are clean and tight.

2001 ford taurus is cranking but not starting can your fuel pump totally just go out


yes your fuel pump can go suddenly w/ no warning. check your fuses in fuse box and fuel pump relay under the hood. look at owners manual to see where electric fuel shut off switch is to make sure that did not trip and needs to be reset. could possibly be plugged fuel filter but likley its the pump.

Show what fuses goes where on 2001 taurus


Hi,

The first place to start is the Ford 2001 Owner's Manual.

You can get a .pdf version of the 2001 Ford Taurus Owner's Manual at: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Owner/Page/OwnerGuidePage&year=2001&make=Ford&model=Taurus

It has instructions and guides for finding and replacing the fuses in a 2001 Ford Taurus. It starts on page 146-147.

Always use the specific Owner's Manual for the correct Model Year of a Ford or Mercury vehicle. I recently purchased a 2001 Ford Taurus, and had thought that I could use the Owner's Manual from a 1999 Mercury Sable from a friend. BUT, I figured out that each model year can be very different (before any serious damage happened.)

Good luck,

JB

1999 Ford Taurus Coolant Light


Jackie, Hi, yes this would be the problem if the temperature sensor is not working it will not tell the fan too start, so best advice would be too change this sensor, or have someone do it for you and that should cure your problem, Colin.

P0430 Catalyst System Efficiency below Limit - Bank No 2" How would I fix that without taking it in? P0430 - Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2)
you need a scan tool to monitor the upstream and downstream 02 sensors on bank 2 more than likely its the converter. also check for exhaust leaks before converter . Most times the problem is the Downstream O2 sensor2_bing.gif is defective.

I need a schematic for the fuse box on a 2001 Ford Taurus. The cruise control quit and I need to know what fuse is the possible culprit.What amp fuse is it?


Check for the fuse and relay diagrams in the owners manual in the glove
box.If you don't have it,I'd suggest picking up a Chilton's Manual,at any
parts store. Good luck.

Car is jumping while excelerating at 40 miles per hour,stops jumping for a few minutes then starts jumping again at 55 miles per hour


Start with changing fuel filter, then if that doesn't work, your fuel pump may be going bad.

My Ford Taurus 2001 Suddenly stopped starting. The ignition sounds fine, Turns over, but nothing is catching. Battery is fine, gas level is fine, no check engine light.I thought maybe it just wouldn't...


Some fords if you slam the trunk lid too hard, it pops the fuel shutoff relay in the trunk area. It is like a circuit breaker you just push the button to reset it. Or you copuld have a sensor under the hood went bad(crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position sensor, mass air flow sensor).
I would start by calling the ford dealership to verify the whereabouts of the fuel shutoff relay, and start there. I had a few late 80's taurus'sand they were on the drivers side in the trunk behind a plastic panel(ford may have relocated them since), and i ran into this problem with them. I learned the hard way, the first time it happened to me I went and bought another taurus and started stripping the first one for parts, when a friend showed me that switch, I pushed it a lo and behold the darn thing started. I was mad and happy at the same time.

How often do i change spark plugs on my 2004 jeep grand cherokee 6 cyl


A new set of spark plugs should give you a good 40-50.000 km. You should of course consider that unexpected factors could damage your spark plugs before the above numbers are met (electrical or other problems).
