It is very possible that you have a clogged catalytic converter.

There are several things that can cause your 2002 Ford Taurus to hesitate when accelerating. A dirty air filter will cause the problem.

what would cause a no start condition when engine spins in a 95 taurus sho 3.2l

In a 1999 Ford Taurus : The 3.0 liter " Vulcan " V6 engine which is an overhead valve / pushrod design would have cast iron heads The 3.0 liter " Duratec " V6 engine would have aluminum heads

User Avatar

It would help if you listed which engine you have. The 3.0 liter V6 has 145 h.p. The 3.4 liter SHO V6 has 235 h.p.

would a cracked blocked cause a car to bubble antifreeze inside the reservoir of a 97 ford taurus ?

User Avatar

I believe that would be the 3.2 liter DOHC V6 engine that was used with the automatic( from 1993 to 1995 inclusive ) unless you mean the 2010 Taurus SHO with the 3.5 L -V6 - twin turbo engine

The 2001 Ford Taurus ( SEL trim ) would have the 3.0 liter " Duratec " DOHC , V6 engine which has ( 2 timing CHAINS , 1 chain to each cylinder head )

User Avatar

I was looking at the 1999 Ford Taurus Owner Guide and it shows : Both the 3.0 liter DOHC , Duratec engine and the 3.0 liter , Vulcan engine are designed to use ( " regular " unleaded gasoline , 87 octane ) * so , the answer would be ( no )

I wouldnt say beer would be the primary cause of the ulcer but over consumption of it can irritate it and cause acid build up, heartburn which can then cause the ulcer to to react.

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.

Check out the "Related Question" below for lots of information about malfunctioning flashers on Taurus - Sables. It's not as bad as you might think...

The spark plug gap for a 1990 Ford Taurus 3.0L engine should be set at .044 inches. A 4.2 liter engine would have a gap between .052 and .056 inches.

I'm not a mechanic / technician but on a 2004 Ford Taurus if you have the 3.0 liter DOHC " Duratec " V6 engine you would because it has a timing chain going to each cylinder head

User Avatar

Assuming that you aren't over-heating, check the fuel pump. My 1999 Taurus used to stall/ refuse to start when it was hot due to a faulty pump.

User Avatar

In a 2000 Ford Taurus : That would depend on which engine you have : The 3.0 liter " Vulcan " V6 engine has the EDIS ( Electronic Distributorless Ignition System ) which has ( 1 coil pack ) with 6 towers for the spark plug wires The 3.0 liter " Duratec " V6 engine has the Coil On Plug ( C.O.P. ) ignition system and has ( 6 individual coils )

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