The cause for a 1991 Ford Taurus to just cut off while driving is probably a problem with the computer. If the car will start again after about 90 minutes, then check the computer module for code errors.
It is mostly cold or sometime even warm it depends on how high you are in the Taurus mountains
where is the engine coolant temperature sensor- low input locationon a 1998 ford taurus
The temperature sending unit on the 1999 Ford Taurus v6 is on the rear of the engine. It is closer to the driver side about 7 inches down.
If "temperature control" means the device that adjusts the heating/cooling temperature, that would be the temperature blend door actuator motor.See "Related Questions" below for more about that and other Taurus / Sable heating problems and fixes
About 68 gallons of gas.
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.
Next to the thermostat housing.
The Taurus does not have a heater control valve. Coolant flows through the core at all times. Be sure to review the "Related Question" below for much more about Taurus temperature controls
Disconnect the battery for a few minutes
The ECT (Electronic Coolant Temperature) sensor is located under the intake manifold on the driver's side on a 1995 Taurus SHO 3.2 liter. It is on the cylinder head.
Check your sensors.
The coolant temperature sensor on an 89 Taurus with a 3.8L V-6 is located directly above the thermostat, where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. the sensor is positioned vertically and has 2 wires coming off of it.
No - they are in 2 totally different systems
Most likely the sensor in the motor.
The temperature sending unit it on the front of the engine. It is on the top just beside of the water intake.
you need to replace the cam shaft positioning sensor
The coolant temperature sensor screws into the bottom of the radiator, and has two wires connected to it which have a quick relese plug....piece of cake
Hi, I know there is one temperature sensor located right near the thermostat, which one or what exactly are you looking for? Steve H.
It is integral with the Maf sensor on the air box
For a diagram consult: http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1999-ford-taurus--ac-suddenly-not-working!-vt155404.html What year Taurus? The linked answer specifically cites the temperature blend door actuator motor. See "Related Questions" below for more about it...
Make sure it's full of coolant, not just overflow but in the radiator. Check to see if drivebelt is still intact under hood. Thermostat could be stuck closed. Make sure fan under hood is working properly. If temperature fluctuates up and down while driving, then it could be a bad head gasket.
It's buried in the dash near heater core, almost impossible to get to.
The gauge does not cause the heat; it only shows what it is.
