fords are notorius for faulty fan switches, you will need to get a new one, but it will probably fail in a year or two.

SOURCE: how to remove 2002 ford taurus radiator

Remove the rad support cover, remove the electric cooling fan and shroud, disconnect the tranny cooler lines, drain the cooling system, remove the upper and lower hoses, remove the rad brackets on top of the rad (one on each side), have someone hold the AC core out of the way and carefully slide the radiator up and out

SOURCE: windows have stopped working

First check the fuses if you have not done so. You will need to remove the door panel to get to the driver side window switch, the power for all of the windows enters through the driver side switch. Use a multi meter to determine if power is reaching the switch, if it is not, run a temporary wire from the fuse panel to the switch and see if that will work the windows. If it now works you know the problem is a bad wire. If you are getting power to the switch but not power out the other side you know the switch is bad and must be replaced.

look on the back of the sleeve the serpentine belt came in...it should have multiple diagrams showing the setup you just have to choose the one for your engine. to replace unbolt the back of the alternator remove the belt and work backwards to install belt.

you have to pull on the belt to get give from the tensioner unless you have the required tool... it makes it A LOT easier but nothing a little elbow grease cannot handle

chech engine light is letting you know that the idle air valve has been disconnected. looks like you have a bad idle air valve.

it would usually be the tps (throttle positioning sensor) but you can also check the icv (idle control valve)

2002 Ford Taurus, runs okay till come to stop then cuts-off


The most common reason for engine stall is a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the intake.

Car ideling high


the setting of the idling must be wrong. try this... at first you start the engine, wait till it gets hot then start lowering the idle in the normal rpm. this will sure work. hope this helps

My 2002 Ford Taurus will shutter and die when running the air conditioner and sitting idle at a stop sign or stop light. When I turn on the air conditioner the rpms will fluctuate up high above 2 and then...


the idle air control valve is responsible for engine idle.
this is a common failure on ford's. but I don't think yours is bad because it does idle high befor it dies.
you stated you had codes p0171 and p0174 these are lean codes for bank one and two, you said you found a vacuum leak and repaired it, the vacuum leak was mostly likely the cause of the lean codes, however the pcm has calibrated the fueling stategy for this lean mixture, what you need to do is erase the KAM "keep alive memory" this is done by unhooking the negative battery cable for 60 seconds, this is the only way to erase the KAM the $6000.00 machine I use wont even do it.

once the KAM is clean the computer will go into a relearn state and all operating values will be adjusted for the vehicles current condition, during this relearn session the vehicle may have some driveability issues (low or high idle, stalling, poor fuel economy) the relearn should complete within 10 minutes of idling and then 10 minutes of driving.

good luck and keep me updated
