Question about 1998 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

No Start My Taurus broke down a few months ago and I had to get a mechanic to rebuild my engine... This morning it started just fine and as I was going down the road it turned off on me and will not start. What could be the problem? I can't afford another engine.

    Also, it had an awful smell. like a plastic burning smell... Could it be my alternator possibly?

    Was it hot or overheated?? I have not had a instances of an alt making a burning smell like plastic, but a few more questions might clear this up, is the battery ok, is this a no crank no start, or a crank no start??

If it is turning over test to see if you have got a spark if not then your coil might have burnt out.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

Why does my fan belt on my 2002 ford taurus keep coming off


You may have a idler or pulley that is getting a bad bearing and throwing the belt. The belt can stretch some but if they do most will squeak or not cool the engine and you will see the engine temp go up when it is slipping and then when it catches the temp will go back down.

1999 taurus. 6 cyl OHV. Ran fine over the weekend. Parked car in driveway. Started this morning. Heard high(RPM) pitch winding sound coming from engine or tranmission. Noticed will not reverse or move into...


Check for vacuum lines going to transmission or any vacuum line under hood. It is possible an animal chewed on the lines or wires. We get a few reports of that at Fixya.

You might also look under the dash by the pedals for a vacuum leak. There are vacuum switches for parking brake release and the neutral start switch.

Turn the key but nothing happens all electrics


Not all replacement parts are good. I would guess that the new ignition switch is bad. Its also possible that the wiring harness is loose where its connected to the ignition switch. You could try jiggling the wires.
