I had this exact problem on my 1996 Taurus. The solution in my case was to replace the transmission range sensor. I replaced it myself. It was easy to change. I can't say if that is what is wrong with your Taurus, but it was what was wrong with mine. Good Luck! This was also the problem with my '96 Taurus... part was also refferd to a Nuetral Safty Switch"
Replaced by other models.
Maybe you have a problem in your main wiring harness. No fun.. Could also be an electrical sensor.
The Taurus SHO has a timing belt that must be replaced every 100,000 miles. All other Ford Taurus's have a chain that should last the life of the engine.
If you have a Ford Taurus and the high beams stay on all the time, chances are that you have a defective control switch. The dome light uses a separate switch but is likely to have the same problem. To correct the problem, both switches should be replaced.
my transmission is not shifting on my 2005 Ford Taurus what could be the problem
Have the speed sensor replaced.
Possibly the O2 sensors need replacing. There's one in each exhaust manifold.
This is a internal problem, I had same thing wrong and I replaced all I could then brought it to shop and he said the bands are slipping
Ive read that most Taurus cars have a faulty pulleythat the serpentine belt runs through which makes irritating noises such as squeaking, humming, tilted steering. It must be replaced to fix the problem. Belt conditioner is a temporary fix however u would have to use it daily. Highly reccomended to just get it replaced. hope this helps.
I just had mine replaced and there were 3 total.
The size of a transmission pan in a Ford Taurus is usually 5/16x18. However, this may vary if you've had the pan replaced in the past.
You can't repair it. It must be replaced.You can't repair it. It must be replaced.
you may have a bad battery or a bad voltage regulator
You didn't mention a problem.
Never. The Taurus engines...both the Vulcan and the Duratec V6s...both have a timing CHAIN that lasts the life of the engine, not a timing belt.
I have a problem to change a spark plug.
Nope. Money is a problem in this, because money falls through Libra like sand, and Taurus would get very mad about this.
I just had this problem with my 94 taurus. It turned out to be the light switch on the steering column. I am not sure what it is called, but it is the "lever" you use to turn on the brights and blinkers. My hazzard lights were not woking either. I replaced it and all has been good for about a year now. Hope this helps.
have clutches checked. My 89 Ford Taurus had the same problem and the clutches that control the fans were shot
It means there is a problem with your transmission.
There is a problem with the emissions system.
The stop light switch may cause the problem. If not adjusted properly it will not allow the cruise to engage. Check that there is no contact with the switch (Plunger) while the brake is not being depressed.
There are several things that can cause your 2002 Ford Taurus to hesitate when accelerating. A dirty air filter will cause the problem.
Had the same problem off and on in my 1999 Taurus. The speedometer needs to be replaced. The problem is in the speedometer and not the transmission like I was initially led to believe. My mechanic said it wasn't that big of a repair.Coincidentally, the vehicle speed sensor feeds information to both the speedometer and the transmission....See "Related Questions" below for more
