Hi, on my 1999 Taurus wagon, I lost all power to tailgate hatch- reverse lights, license plate light, top brake light. What, most likely happened?

If you haven't already check fuses. If fuses are good. My guess would be brake light switch. IT'S a little box at the top of the brake pedal behind the dash. Try replacing it.

1999 Ford Taurus se, the car was running fine yesterday but after idling in the closed garage for about a minute it started to sputter with a almost sulfur odor and the service engine soon light came on...

Go to an Autozone, Oreily, or Advance auto parts store. They will scan you car for free and can reveal the Code and possible fix.

Possibly the air sensors went out of balance when there was no fresh air. Sounds like sensors read the engine as "Lean" due to lack of Oxygen and set engine to a rich setting.

We were told by a mechanic that there ae some issues with our 1999 Ford Taurus wagon it has no oil pressure and has a cracked reserver now can this damge the engine ? its making a load desieling noice ,has...

Engine oil is the blood of the engine. With out oil pressure the engine will not survive as moving parts will no longer be lubricated. It sounds like the damage has already been done.

Are you talking about a cracked coolant reservoir? If so did you run the car out of coolant and overheat the engine?

From your description it sounds like the motor is done. I wouldn't hesitate to at least explore the option and cost of replacing the motor with a low mileage used engine.

We had our 1999 Ford Taurus wagon was put on a computer diognoisis machine and checked by a mechanic and it says it is not getting any oil pressure to the engine he also said that there were too many...

Check your dipstick to see if there is oil in the motor. Check your water. There is an additive called Lubegard that may help. Seems this product is carried at Oreilly, Carquest, and NAPA stores only. Tell the Autoparts people what you want to fix. There are about 16 different products with this name. You need the correct Application for your problem. It can free up engines.

Next, Oreillys and Autozone will do a free scan of your car. They can tell you if they can get it to register on their machine. This way you have a second opinion and can verify whether your car is registering or not.

If you find you have to get rid of this car, there are Salvage yards in the paper, there is Craigslist on the Web. You can call around and see what the vehicle is worth. Scrap prices are up. But you could find someone on Craigslist who may buy it for more than $200.

I do not know what a can of Lubegard will cost, but if you want to try something, clean oil, and new filter, and Lubegard is about all you can do.
