1990 taurus wont start. Battery voltage is 12.5. Has spark.Cranks, but seems like its bucking the starter. Replaced the starter,same problem. Cant find the timing mark to see if the gears are bad.

Sounds like your timing is off. With out hearing it it`s hard to say if it is valve timing or spark timing. Your car has a timing belt and it is possible that it has skipped a tooth which affects valve timing or you have a bad crank sensor which will affect spark timing. It would be best if you picked up a manual to check the timing belt and marks.

My 1990 Ford Taurus won't shut off after you get

the starter solenoid is bad. very common in the older ford vehicles. had the same problem with my 85 Crown Vic and it was the solenoid. its like a 10 dollar fix. if it sticks after you replace it then theres something wrong with your alternator backfeeding the solenoid, which is usually because it is wired wrong.

Adjust (aim) headlights on a 1990 Ford Taurus

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

Need to time it not sure were timing marks are can anyone help


Confirm that the timing mark on the crankshaft pulley aligns with the TDC mark on the front cover (arrows)


A sticker located on the timing cover identifies the timing marks and also shows the 0 degree mark on the crankshaft pulley


Good luck (remember rated this help).

1990 taurus enginelight on

you'll have to have a diagnostic test done to know. it's cheaper to buy a haynes repair manual at an auto parts store, $18 and you can do it yourself. the problem is usually a sensor.
