The Taurus could overheat for several reasons. The coolant could be low, the fan might not be operating properly, or the engine could have a stuck thermostat.

In a 2002 Ford Taurus : There are ( 6 engine cylinders ) You could have the 3.0 liter " Vulcan " V6 engine ( or its flex fuel version ) or You could have the 3.0 liter " Duratec " Dual Over Head Cam V6 engine

On the 1996 Ford Taurus GL : The 3.0 litre " Vulcan " V6 engine is an Over Head Valve / pushrod design engine ( I believe you could get an optional engine , which was the 3.0 litre " Duratec " V6 engine which is a DOHC design )

On a 2001 Ford Taurus : You could have the 3.0 liter " Vulcan " V6 engine ( and its flex fuel version ) which is an Over Head Valve / pushrod design engine Or the 3.0 liter " Duratec " V6 engine which is a Dual Over Head Cam design engine

If you have coolant on the top of the engine it could be a leaky thermostat housing or a leaking intake gasket.

It isn't designed to do that. Running E85 could damage the engine.

this could be due to defective or clogged thermostat

That is a check engine light. It could be many things but it needs to be hooked to a diagnostic machine to determine what the problem is.

you could have the 3.0 L - " Vulcan " - over head valve ( OHV ) engine or the 3.0 L - " duratec " - dual over head cam ( DOHC ) engine in your 1997 Ford Taurus

The temperature of the water will vary on any vehicle with speed, including on the Taurus. The more an engine runs, the higher the water temperature will be in the radiator. If the radiator is overheating, then there could be a malfunction with a temperature sensor, a leaky hose, or damage to the radiator.

dead battery, flooded engine, could be any number of things.

my transmission is not shifting on my 2005 Ford Taurus what could be the problem

The theromstat is in the hose that is connected to the engine. It will have about 3 or 4 bolts, you need metric tools for it.

Check the thermostat. Another reason could be the head gaskets are blown.

As a play on words you could use "Pollution is Rubbish".

pollution could be one problem. Another problem is oil spills. That happens a lot when getting oil from the ocean bottom.

IT could burn you, cause pollution, and give you brain damage. IT could burn you, cause pollution, and give you brain damage. IT could burn you, cause pollution, and give you brain damage. IT could burn you, cause pollution, and give you brain damage.

It could very well be the catalatic convertor on the engine. Have it checked out.

This could be another term for the cabin filter... (??)See "Related Questions" below for more about those.

They should be metric,bolts with numbers on them 8.8,9.8 ect.There could be a few SAE bolts on the engine depending on your engine type.If there are no numbers on them,and have short slashes they are SAE.

On a 2002 Ford Taurus : You could have the gear shift lever up by the steering wheel or by the floor console for your automatic transmission And , if you mean the automatic transaxle ( transmission ) fluid level dipstick , it is near the firewall between the engine and the brake fluid reservoir in the engine compartment

Usually when an animal kills another animal it eats the body but it is possible that an animal could kill another animal and the dead animal's body could fall into a small stream or pond where it could decompose and pollute the water.

DO NOT RUN this engine until you have it checked out,if you have no oil pressure you will destroy your engine.If your oil light is on you have no oil pressure,could be your oil pump or crankshaft bearings.There is a chance it could be a pressure switch malfunction.
