I have a 1994 Ford F-150 with a 5.0.. I have codes tell me to change the oxygen sensor. So I did. has the same problem we have the engine running funny. started up go down the road its fine.. then the...

The ECM isn't getting good readings. Could be the front one or the back. Several things to check. First check all of the vacuum hoses and fittings. Ford has always had problems with the fittings mostly. If they are soft, mushy, or collapsed. replace them. Next would be to check the continuity /resistance of the O2 wires. If they are above 5 ohms resistance, run new wires. Also check for corrosion at the plugs.

Check the pcv and hoses with it may have a crack. Also any vacuum hoses going to the intake plenum.
Also what engine 300 6 5.0(302) or 5.8(351). Idle should be around 650rpm.

2002 ford escape temp guage says normal water will blow out of the degas bottle when engine reaches temp had to replace radiator trans cooler was leaking into radiator also replaced thermostat

Blown radiator hose? Might have blown a head gasket right there,which would continually send hot bubbles into the cooling system and degas bottle. If you see bubbles continually,it's a head gasket probably.
Might be the degas cap not releasing at 16 psi or your cooling system has air in it, OR your cooling fan is not actuating. Many things.
Also I have gotten 3 out of 5 bad thermostats from aftermarket stores. Get a Motorcraft thermostat. Did you replace with a NEW radiator?

I have a 2000 ford taurus ses. we are currently on a road trip and all of a sudden our temp gage was going towards hot and our car started steaming bad. when i pulled over and popped the hood the surge...

If it overhears in traffic the first thing I would look at is the cooling fans. With the car in park and the engine running the cooling fans should come on before the temp gauge goes past the half way mark. If it doesn't turn on than there are several possibilities. There is a 40 amp main fuse that supplies power to the fan in the under hood fuse block. You will need the owners manual to identify it. Or you can pull all the 40 amp maxi fuses one at a tine to see if they are blown. Other than checking the fuse there is nothing you can do without some basis test equipment like a test light or a volt meter. If you have either of those let me know and I can give you some more info on what to check.

Ambient air temp is readying high on my 2007 Ford F150, possible causes?

Usually it is the temp probe on the radiator support behind the grille.
When you pop the hood there are 2 probes there, 1 in the ambient air temp probe, the other is the front impact severity sensor. temp probe has the little probe sticking out of it. I have seen mixed results on replacing this, some it corrects the issues, others are still not happy after the replacement. I make the assumption ( bad thing some times ) that the ones that are unhappy are using an incorrect comparison temp sensor ( bank sign, etc ).
