I am looking for 2007 Ford Taurus SHO or SES


Ford didn't make the Taurus sho in 2007. The sho were made between 1989-1999 and then 2010-present. In 2007 the Taurus was only offered in SE and SEL trim.

Alternator replaced


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The different engine applications that the Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable are equipped with utilize different types of alternators. The following is a list of vehicle applications. For 1986-90 vehicles:

The 3.0L and the 3.8L engines utilize a side terminal alternator.

The 2.5L and the 3.8L (with Police Package only) engines utilize an alternator with an integral rear mount regulator and an internal fan.

The 3.0L SHO engines utilize an alternator with an internal fan and regulator.For 1991-93 vehicles:

The 2.5L, 3.0L and 3.8L engines utilize an alternator with a rear mount regulator and an internal fan.

The 3.0L and 3.2L SHO engines utilize an alternator with an internal regulator and fan.For 1994-95 vehicles:

The 3.0L, 3.8L and 3.0L SHO engines utilize an alternator with a rear mount regulator and an internal fan.

The 3.2L SHO vehicles utilize an alternator with a internal regulator and fan.


1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Loosen the alternator pivot bolt, then remove the adjusting bolt.
3. Remove the alternator drive belt from the drive pulley.
4. Tag and disengage the wiring terminals from the back of the alternator. The stator and the field wiring are the push-on type of retainer. After depressing the lock tab, the connector should be pulled straight off of the terminal to prevent damage.
5. Remove the alternator pivot bolt, then remove the alternator from the engine.
6. Position the alternator on the engine.
7. Install the alternator pivot bolt and the adjusting bolt, but do NOT tighten the bolts until the drive belt it tensioned.
8. Engage the wiring terminals to the alternator, as tagged during removal.
9. Install the drive belt over the alternator drive pulley, then adjust the belt tension using Belt Tension Gauge 021-00019, or equivalent.

When adjusting belt tension, apply pressure on the front housing only.

10. Tighten the adjusting bolt to 30-45 ft. lbs. (41-61 Nm), then tighten the pivot bolt to 50-70 ft. lbs. (68-94 Nm).
11. Connect the negative battery cable.


Hope helps.

Replaced computer module on 97 Ford, won't shift gears in Drive


Did you test drive it,before you paid. NO,why not? Take it back,sounds like they didn't either. Why would you waste extra money ,by going to a dealer vs. a local repair shop?

99 taurus won't start,power windows,locks


CHARGING CIRCUIT NOT WORKING PROBABLY ---CHECK THE BATTERY CONNECTIONS FIRST
THEN NOTHING ON OR W NEG CABLE DISCONNECTED CHECK THE aLTERNATOR WIRE CONNECTION
OR THE COIL MAY BE WORKING IMPROPERLY TOO
OR YOU GOT A BATTERY WITH WHAT'S CALLED A DEAD CELL--BRAND NEW
IT HAPPENS ---IF YOU GOT IT AT AN AUTOPARTS STORE OR CAN GET TO A aUTOZONE OR
aDVANCE AUTO --they should be able to test it all if you don't have a volt meter with a dc setting
there is a way to field test the alternator easily --but you need the volt meter --one red lead goes to a Grounding cut on --small in the back of the alternator and the black to a good ground I use the battery neg or a bolt on the engine accessory bractets ---you insert the red lead probe into the
ground plane slot --while cranking needs to exceed 13volts to considered charging
or you can use a Clamp on meter on the positive wire coming from the alternator too
I have the 97 SHO ---3.4 v8 ---now that's a hand full
I did have a 99 merc mystique albeit identical to yours though
My SHO alarm system will slowly drain off the battery to when left parked for a week
probably a short to ground or slow draw bleed off ---I haven't even tried to track it yet
I leave it parked --due to law enforcement harassement and I've had a clean license forever
just can't drive to or from without being harassed and it's 100%stock
ford in 2010 launches the 365hp twin turbo ecotec V6 with all wheel drive ---but I already know
ford techs --won't fix them right when things go wrong and they will --heck they won't change
the oil in a late model sho v8 ---"Not Qualified" or 'Not allowed to per ford corp mandate sorry"
No Dealer service available to date --I've been to 27 dealers for service when traveling =no dice
had to go to Lexus for an oil change --Kudos to Lexus

With my 98 Taurus with the same problem, simply replacing the fuse solved both problems. The fuse is under the hood - it was the small 30amp on the toward the engine side under the relays.
