I have a 96 for taurus. While driving it starts

This is a good indication that the catalytic converter is bad.  Other symptoms include a smelly sulphur like exhaust, a lot of heat coming from the exhaust (in the middle of the car), a lot of smoke from the exhaust.

CTS Check

Yes it is an easy check first test the switch cold the resistance should be high and then put the switch in hot water close to boiling point and take another reading the Resistance should be low if not then the gage is bad, if I remember right it's 200 ohms when hot but if you have an analog meter it Will just barely read Resistance when cold and swing to the right as it gets hotter just like a gage would, and if there is no difference then it's bad, it uses wax to expand as it gets hot if the wax has leaked out it will not change Resistance.

1st thing to do is check the automatic trans fluid level, if it is full (check hot only!) then the trans clutches have fried and the trans will have to be replaced or torn down and repaired.

1997 taurus

The circuit is expanding in hot wheather to the point where it is broken. In cold whether circuits and circuit boards contract slightly, reconnecting a weak solder point. Do you have an intermittant check engine light? Is it constantly on? If so new problems can arise, but the check engine light will not tell you about any new issues, it simply remains on. Get it diagnosed at any shop with any OBD2 interface to diagnose your cars specific issues. If not, just save time and replace the starter. It's probably different from engine to either have a 3.0 liter vulcan V6 or the zoomier 24 valve V6. Call the parts counter at any ford dealer and say the right things and the parts guy may tip you off on known issues. I had a 96 was a pile.
