The back spark plugs are 1 2 3 ,so its the one in the back, far left (drivers side) You dont say why you want to know. If you have a misfire on number 3, you shoul dreplace the spark plugs with the correct spark plug (Motorcraft Platinum), but the most likely problem is the coil pack.

SOURCE: 2001 ford expedition spark plug location

That's because they are hidden quite well. If you look at the engine, you'll see yellow plastic prongs (?) that look like spark plugs, but hook up to the silver tubing.  That's the fuel injectors.  BUT, right behind the yellow plugs, are black ones.  The black one is the connector to the spark plug.  The plug itself sits about 4 inches down into the block of the engine.  They are a real pain, and from what I can tell, you only have decent access to the first 2-4 of them, then they get too far back and start going under the dash (you'll see what I mean when you get there).

I need to see the image of a 2001 ford taurus motor to locate the spark plugs

with all due respect, if u need an image to locate spark plugs then you really shouldnt be working under the bonnet of ur car. if u snap a spark plug or cross thread it when replacing them, your in for mega money putting it right. however if u insist, remove the plastic cover off the top of ur engine and look for 4 black rubber leads, pull these out and the spark plugs are underneath.

Looking for the location of the egr sencor for a ford 2001 taurus egine light is on solid car is bucking not stalling yet would like to clean it now. Thank you

Usually a bad or dirty EGR valve will cause an engine to stall when it is warm and it will not start until it cools down. In some cases the EGR won't trigger a check engine light. If the car stumbles at low rpm and then is fine at higher rpm, I would replace the spark plugs and wires. The EGR is located on or near the intake. It will have a vacuum hose connected to it and usually 2 bolts holding it in place. It looks like a handbell from a bicycle. You can also look up on the internet what the EGR valve looks like for a 2001 Ford Taurus. Please rate me on this answer.

2001 Ford Taurus - won't start. Cranks really good but engine won't start. Tested with good battery, fuel pump, plugs & wires. Car was driven daily. All of a sudden just didn't start no more. I was...

Lots of possible choices... but junk yard coil as a replacement (easy for you to do) can eliminate that potential problem for just a few dollars.

If that fails, have a friend help you confirm that you have spark - by pulling a plug wire and holding it against (near) a good ground. If it sparks over 1/2 inch - it is not spark.

If that fails, pull a plug wire off a spark plug. Crank the engine for 10-15 seconds. Now remove and inspect the plug for gas wetness. If wet, it is not fuel flow.

If that fails, it could be timing, timing belt, or a large number of other issues - most cheap to fix but time consuming to locate.

Do the above tests then come back and let us know what you find!!
