Why does my car overheat when i stop.


check fluid levels in radiator, old radiator fluid flush system and replace fluid with new, bad radiator cap, bad thermostat, bad radiator hoses collapsing or you need to take your radiator to radiator shop or buy a new one. If you have electric fans make sure they are comming on when engine is at idle possible bad temp. switch on electrical fan.

I'am trying to change my front pads on my 92 taurus. but i could not figure out how to get the caliper off to put the new pads on. could you tell me what to do?


You need a socket with an allen/hex bit. Not sure about the size of the hex bit you will have to figure that out yourself. There are 2 scews holding the on calipers.

Heres what they look like:

They are on the back of the caliper toward the engine, find the proper size hex socket. They sale a set of the sockets at Autozone for around $10, 3/8 inch drive. Thats the best way to go.

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

Location of thermostat


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Container
  • Jack and jack stands or wheel ramps (if needed)
  • Screwdriver
  • 13mm socket or wrench
  • Thermostat and gasket
  1. 1

    Turn the drain valve at the bottom of the radiator counterclockwise to drain the coolant from your Ford Taurus into a suitable container. Depending on the size of the container, it may be necessary to lift the front end of your Taurus with a jack and lower it onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps.

  2. 2

    Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it meets the thermostat housing at the front of the intake manifold. Loosen the hose clamp and pull the radiator hose off the water connection on the thermostat housing.

  3. 3

    Take out the two bolts on the thermostat housing cover with a 13mm socket or wrench and remove the cover. Clean any old gasket residue from the inside of the thermostat housing cover. Pull out the old thermostat.

  4. 4

    Insert the new thermostat into the thermostat housing with the spring-side facing into the engine. Install the new thermostat gasket. Use a spray adhesive to hold the gasket in place, if desired.

  5. 5

    Reinstall the thermostat housing cover. Tighten the bolts to 89-124 in. lbs. Reattach the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing. Make sure the drain valve on the radiator is closed.

  6. 6

    Fill the radiator with new or reserve coolant. Start your Ford Taurus and allow it to warm up to its normal operating temperature. Check hoses and connections for leaks and tighten hose clamps to stop any leaks, if necessary. Add more coolant as needed.

How to change a radiator on a 1996 ford taurus


  1. Step 1 Drive your Ford Taurus up a set of ramps onto a pair of jack stands, if it is a 1996 model or newer. Remove the lower splash shields. For 1986 through 1995 models, you can remove all necessary components from above.
  2. Step 2 Begin by disconnecting the negative battery terminal and draining the radiator into a transportable container. Open the plastic draincock on the lower rear of the radiator and crack the radiator cap.
  3. Step 3 Remove the overflow tube from the coolant recovery bottle and disconnect it from the radiator. On SHO model engines, remove the recovery bottle as well. Next unscrew the shroud and remove it from the retaining clips. Disconnect the wires to the fan motor, and remove the fan assembly and shroud in one piece.
  4. Step 4 Squeeze the hose clamp ends together on the radiator side, and remove the upper and lower hoses. For automatic transaxle models, use either the custom Ford disconnect tool T82L-9500-AH or two crescent wrenches to remove the transmission coolant lines.
  5. Step 5 Disconnect the radiator supports. 1986 through 1992 models will have two upper retaining screws for 3.0 liter and SHO engines. 3.8 liter engines will have two driver's side hex nuts and two passenger side screws. All other models have either the upper screws or the combination of right hand hex nuts and left hand screws.
  6. Step 6 Tilt the radiator backwards toward the engine and lift it out. Fit the new radiator into the support and replace the support screws and nuts. Reattach the hoses and wires in reverse order.
  7. Step 7 Flush the new radiator with either water or a commercial flush treatment. Connect your battery terminals and replace the coolant and let the engine idle for 5 to 10 minutes with the heater on and the radiator cap removed. Top off the coolant as necessary.
Thank you,
Lee
