Hello:

Usually on Ford automobiles, the low coolant sensor is built into the coolant overflow tank cap. If yours is this way, you can spot the wiring and electrical connector attached to the cap. The sensor looks like a dipstick in the coolant tank.

Hope this helps!

Location of thermostat 1997 ford taurus dohc 24 valve v6


on the 1997 Taurus DOHC v6 the thermostat is conveniently located at the front passenger side of the engine, just up over top of the the mud guard. There's about a dozen screws (bolt heads) to take off, slip out the mud guard and there's the lower radiator hose and the thermostat housing! The thermostat is held in by a reusable O ring and is pretty well engineered for being in such a surprising location.

Making sure the fluid level is up, and there is no leaks in the cooling system, then you must have a circulation problem, Check the thermostat and water pump.

Where it the thermostat located in this vehicle


Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5929960-s_thermostat . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

On the 3 liter engine, the thermostat is at the end of the upper radiator hose.

On the DOHC engines, it is at the end of the lower radiator hose.

If you have the 3.4 liter DOCH engine, you have to take the battery, power box, and battery tray out to get at it.

see pictures

Where is the oil sending unit on a 1996 ford taurus 3.0 liter engine located? glenn


On 3.0L OHV engines, the oil pressure sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the flywheel. On 3.0L DOHC engines the sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the oil filter. On 3.4L DOHC engines the sensor is screwed into the oil filter adapter. The oil pressure sensor operates the oil pressure warning lamp.

Flickering oil light


This could be two unassociated problems; the flickering oil light can indicate that the pressure sensor for the idiot light is failing- this is not uncommon, the other can be a failed temperature sensor sensor on the main radiator. 
The low oil pressure condition may also be indicative of a worn engine part or parts. It would make sense to have the actual oil pressure checked in a shop to see if it is in the normal range which should lay between ~30 & 60 pounds depending on engine RPMs and engine temperature. The idiot lights trigger at around 4-5 pounds and this is really pretty late for a warning; if the pressure is actually that low, not only lubrication is too little but the cooling effect of the circulating oil is inadequate.
If it was my car, I would replace both sensors before getting too worried. The cost of these together (parts only) should be well under $50 US.
