#2067 of 2996 1997 Ford Taurus Heater Noise
Nov 01, 2005 (1:19 pm)
1997 Taurus 90,000 miles. I get a rythmic ongoing noise about once per second somewhere in the dashboard when heat or defroster is selected (but only when the temp knob is set past half way (going into the red) or when set at the coldest setting in the blue (cold).. Maybe it's a duct damper cycling open and shut, I don't know. I get very little heat through the ducts. Please give me your ideas on this problem. Thank you. Richard

Where did you find the exact part number for your car for the VSS? I am presented with 7 options and can not seem to find information on which is for my 1996 Taurus GL.

I have a 2001 Merc Sable LS Premium. The automatic headlights are a great feature. Lately, they do not turn off in the light. In the day time, it is like we have running lights. The lights work correctly in manual mode. Is there a light sensor bad? Can anyone guess what my problem is and how to fix it. Thanks

I have a 96 taurus. I need a new shift solenoid. I was told it was under the pan in the transmission. I can't find it. Can any one help???

no further issues after replacing the one bad (intermittent) O2 sensor. we DO have good acceleration and excellent highway operation on the car now, so what we've got does not act like a dead cat at this time.

Did you ever get an answer or otherwise figure this out? I looked through several pages of messages after yours and could not find a reply. The power seat on my 1999 Sable stopped working, and I suspect the switch. What did you do to confirm the problem was the switch and not the motor? Have not tried to replace it yet, but I anticipate I will face the same problem you had.
#2074 of 2996 96 Taurus stalls at 80 mph!!!
Nov 08, 2005 (4:57 pm)
Just purchased this taurus LX with 174k and had a trans leak which was sealed, after doing this engine light came on and diagnostic read O2 sensor on a down pipe and one in the trans. So after getting the trans rebuilt the car was on a trip for 3 hours and had no problem. On the trip back it suddenly loss power at the gas pedal, the car was still on, just no power at the pedal. It kicks back in after about 5 seconds. It also revs while this "stall" is happening but no go. I haven't yet replaced the O2 sensor because they tell me that that has nothing to do with it. Also another funny thing is that the car was about 80% full of water in the coolant tank. Drained and filled with coolant and confused about this high speed stalling.
Could it be a fuel filter or pump?? PLEASEEEEEEE HELP

WHAT DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT CLEANING THE THROTTLE BODY OF THE SABLE/TAURUS. I CAME ACROSS THE SAME STICKER. THERE HAS GOT TO BE A PROCEDURE FOR THE SHADE TREE MECHANIC TO PREFORM THIS ON YOUR OWN. I TOOK MINE TO DEALER THE CHARGES WERE OUTRAGEOUS. TALK ABOUT BEING TAKEN TO THE CLEANERS.
