On my ford taurus a light with the car and bolt on the side.

If you mean this warning light 5d07d41.png
then that means the fuel cap is loose. Tighten it 3 clicks. You really should get yourself an owner's manual. Go here where you can download your manual in PDF format.

What is the gear with ! in it on Ford Taurus 2001 dashboard

That is a transmission warning light. You need to take it to a transmission shop where they have a special code reader that will tell you what the problem is. My car did the same thing was lucky found out it was just a solenoid in the transmission that needed replaced and not the trans itself.

Yellow engine symbol appeared on the dashboard of my 2005 Ford Taurus.

The engine shaped dash warning icon/symbol represents the "Check Engine Light", CEL for short.
It could be because of several things that can make the light come on. Perform a scan on the car and identify the error codes . Autozone can scan the codes for free.
