There should be air bleeders near the thermostat,and another one else where on the engine at a high point,Break one bleeder loose,(thermostat location) first,with engine off,and pour coolant into the reservoir ,and when the bleeder runs pure water no air bubbles out,then shut the bleeder off.then do the same with the other bleeder.Sometimes allowing the engine to run,until normal engine temp,or a little warmer,and turning the engine off,will allow the cooling system to bleed itself,by waiting about 30 minutes and checking the coolant level in the reservoir to make sure the level is dropping,then u will know the system is bleeding itself,just make sure there is enough coolant in the reservoir before doing this.This may have to be done two,or three times.

SOURCE: Heater blows cold air.

heater cores clog in taurus. way to know is this--engine fully hot--heat on reach down to the fire wall and grab hold of one of the heater hoses where it hooks to the core--one should be real hard to keep hold of because its that hot. If the other is close to the same the core is not clogged. But if the other is cold to the touch its clogged. You can remove the hoses and shoot garden hose water in one side or the other and break it loose usually

SOURCE: PCV valve location

if i know what you are asking, look at where you put your oil in. on the valve cover to the top right should be a plug with a tubeing runs to your air clear tube where the air mass sensor and carb is located. i think that is what you are looking for.

SOURCE: How do I change the back 3 spark plugs on a 2002

I am assuming you have the 3.0L Duratec engine. Although the job seems daunting, it's actually easier to remove the upper half of the intake manifold plenum. This took me about 40 minutes to remove the first time I did it, and leaves the rear three spark plugs wide open.

A good repair manual such as the Chilton's manual for the 1996-2005 Ford Taurus has the step-by-step. You should get a new set of intake plenum seals (from Ford or most auto parts stores, which may have to special order them) along with the spark plugs. The seals are a set oval rings made of silicone rubber. Yours may not need them but if you damage one getting the plenum off, or if they have shrunk with age, you'll be glad you got them. They're about $16 a set.

SOURCE: AC system, compressor not engaging.

Sounds like your a/c system is low on freon, system has a low pressure switch which disables a/c compr.so that it don't damage a/c compr, it would be kind of like running an engine with on oil it would damage an engine, what needs to be done is have dye injected in to a/c system to be able to fine the leak, once leak is found can be repaired and recharge with freon, system will work good after repair has been done.Good luck

Radiator capacity 2002 SES Taurus


poor it in until it is full. Make sure you use a mixture of water and coolant. make sure car is running and turn the heater on, let it run until it is warm and the heater is blowing warm that way you know that the coolant is running through the system. also don't forget to put coolant in the reserve, to the hot line when hot, cool line when cool.

No heat in a 2002 ford taurus, need free information on how to fix myself


If it's not the thermostat I have seen this happen numerous times in Fords. The engineers, in their infinite wisdom, placed the heater core HIGHER than the engine block. The coolant gets low and ya get an air pocket in the core. The fix...drain cooling system, remove t-stat and drill a small hole in the flat part, reinstall it with hole straight up (It's an air bleed, if ya didn't figure that out), refill the system NOT THE REGULAR WAY!!!! Remove the hose that runs from the engine to the heater core. Use a funnel and SLOWLY pour coolant in, until the reservoir is full. This will eliminate the air lock in the core.

Air Bag Code


Code 52 relates to low voltage detected in a capacitor inside the airbag module. 45 seconds after key on, this capacitor should have a voltage of around 23 volts.

This capacitor stores energy to deploy the airbag in the case of a collision.

Because your airbag light is on, your system is deactivated (cannot deploy)

In your case, the airbag computer detects less than 23 volts at that capacitor 45 seconds after key on, and disables the system.

There is a diagnostic procedure involved in fixing this problem, but usually means a bad airbag module (computer)

This should only be checked by a qualified technician, as airbag service can be dangerous and there are strict procedures to follow so the bags don't inflate suddenly and cause injury.
