    When a coil pack starts to go bad,or spark plug wiring,or even the spark plugs, you can get that backfire type of sound.How many miles on it?
    A bad coil pack will show up in the OBDII codes.Auto-Zone will read them for you.

Check the stabilizer bar. It will make a lot of noise and is a easy fix. Shows up during acceleration

SOURCE: misses during acceleration , rough

Go get the codes ran at auto zone or advance auto parts they will do it for free. If the codes come up as a cylinder miss-fire then it is most likely a coil (being a ford). Write down which cylinder it is. I wouldn't replace any of the spark plugs , useless you have more than 100,000 miles. If you have to replace the spark plugs use BOSH double plautim or better. The cylinder placing is ( as your are looking at the front of the truck) passenger side front to back 1-2-3-4 driving side front to back 5-6-7-8. If you never seen a coil buy one so you know what you are looking for. The coil is held in by a 7mm bolt. Take the bolt out and replace the coil. Problem Solved. Estimated time 20 Mins with 60 dollars per coil.

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Taurus V6 noise underhood appears to be belt

Sounds like a bad idler pulley,or belt tensioner. Most likely not water pump since the check engine light is not on. Altho it couold be the water pump and for some reason (bad sensor, burnt out light) the check engine isnt coming on. Either way it would be best to have it looked at.

It sounds like the fuel is not being delivered sufficently to the engine. Try looking here. Perhaps a fuel injecter cleaner (you can pour Seafoam into the gas tank and it is a great fuel injecter cleaner and fuel stabilizer). What did your plugs look like when you replaced them? This can tell you a lot about the combustion chamber. A Haynes manual will be invaluable to you.

Hi jaguar 2.5 2002 xtype a.c. problem passanger side blows warm air drivers side ok


Hello
Most probably short on AC gas, you need to check that first as that is what happens usually when AC gas is less than it should be,
If you find that its low on AC gas , it wood be a good idea to check for leak.

What to look for? why is this electrical system malfuntioning?


Well that kind of sounds like a bad connection, but it was difficult understanding with no good punctuation... Have you checked the battery terminals? If not, do so, and have your alternator checked too. I've seen some really goofy stuff happen when some vehicles don't get enough power.

The Service Engine Soon light came on. Could this be something serious or just a reminder that I just hit 80,000 miles and I should take it in. I had the oil changed and fluid levels checked and belts and...


Service engine soon light is alerting you that a code is stored in your computer. If not checked out it could be something that will have an effect on other parts and may cost mor to fix. Most auto parts stores will check it for free.

A strange clicking noise in front when vehicle is moving


If this is a US production vehicle it is not a 2005.
Production stopped on the Axiom in 2004.
If you have a 2004 Axiom with a 3.5 Direct Injection engine it maybe due to low oil level. Check the oil and make sure it is at the correct level. Low oil level can cause the camphasers to rattle and cause engine damage. The phasers are only activated when the vehicle is in gear so you may not hear the noise when in park or neutral. Also maybe caused be loose campulley bolts. Severe engine damage may result if this is the case. Have it inspected soon to avoid damage.

Front wheel bearing/break


Could be a wheel bearing that is starting to have trouble - you won't always hear it right as soon as it starts to fail. If it is a wheel bearing though, very soon you'll start to notice a rumbling noise.
