My Taurus has 115k miles and for about 6-8 mths it has been hestitating...like cutting out almost without stalling. I had the oil changed a few months ago and the guy there said that the wireing harness was loose. He tightened it and then taped it up he said but I may see a dimming of the lights periodically or cut out of the radio. Three months later the engine is actually cutting out now. Took it to a local muffler/engine/brake shop and they said to do a tune up. Checked my records and a tune up was done less than 3 years ago with new sparks/wires. Also said there was a nest in the engine. Changed the air filter and cleaned out the nest. It was in a space between the intake manifold and head. Problem still happeds. Now the battery light flickers on and off periodically but it doesn't coincide witht he heistations. Someone said it might be the EGR filter. I would like to get some more time out of this baby until I get a new car. Thanks

I have a 99 Mercury Sable and it has dayrunning lights and they look like Walker Texas Ranger lights. They blink. I don't think they go entirely off when they blink but it is so rapid that I can't tell. It actually looks like the lights law enforcement now have. What could be the problem

You Have all the symptoms of a bad heater core . It will need to be replaced. This is not the easiest job to do. You might want to let the professionals handle this one . Get some estimates and see if you can go with a rebuild to lower the cost. ....
Check with your local Ford or Mercury dealer .. You may be surprised ............... Good Luck

You didn't mention anything about changing the fuel filter. This sounds like a partially clogged fuel filter . Does it get worse when you accelerate on a hill ? If it does .. it could be you're starving for fuel.

Go to Autozone website on their home page click on repair yourself then find heatercore, they have excellent manual pages and stage by stage replacement of core,Its located behind the radio and I managed through the opening. Don't forget to put your year and vehicle in. Anyone not been on the Autozone repair section, do so its well worth it and they do section by section of repairs

I haven't changed anything other than the air filter. It sounds like the exhaust it not getting through near where it exits the engine but when it chokes and almost stalls the headlights and dash light dim also. I don't see a differance going up a hill although after the car warms up for a while it gets a little better but not much.
#2793 of 3012 Noise Coming from front end

I have a clunking noise in the front of my Mercury Sable 02 and I replaced the struts and the upper baring mounts but i still have the noise that sounds like its coming from the front of the car....anyone know what might be causing it?
Thanks for your Time

I know this seems like a simple answer but the stabilizer bar links on my 98 taurus went bad and made a clunking noise. If you haven't checked them, they might be an easy fix. Hope this helps.
#2795 of 3012 2002 Taurus Dash Lights?
Dec 19, 2007 (1:03 pm)
2002 Taurus Dash Lights are not coming on with the rest of the interior/exterior lights. Would this be fuse or a bulb? Is the bulb able to reached under the dash?
