20 Most Recent 2000 Ford Taurus Questions & Answers


If you have one fan on the vehicle, the fan speed is controlled by a fan module based on temperature or A/C high side pressure. Some vehicles have 2 relays in the relay black box in the engine compartment. You need to call the dealer and give them your vin number and they can tell you what you have narrowing down your search.

The vehicle is nearly 16 years old now, so it is quite likely overdue for a major tune-up (including plugs, wires, and coil packs).
Beyond that, verify adequate pressure at the fuel rail, and replace the fuel pressure regulator and/or fuel pump as required. If fuel pressure is adequate at all load ranges, suspect fuel contamination (especially if you have been using ethanol blend fuels over the past few years). Replace all fuel in the vehicle with fresh in this case, and that should solve your problem.

General rule is 32, not any lower than 28. if it is, fuel pressure regulator is bad, or clogged fuel filter, or bad fuel pump, etc.

The best diagnostic for the fuel pump is a pressure test. Need to know the specs on it (should be around 40-60 PSI), hook it up to a fuel pump tester and there you go.

The symptoms the engine presents when a fuel pump is going bad could include:

- hard to start
- hesitation
- loss of power upon acceleration
- going dead at idle
- others...

But other problems could cause these same symptoms.

Symptom indicates your losing pressure on the fuel rail which indicates the fuel pump is cutting off. Put the ignition in the "ON" position and then test the pressure on the fuel rail. If there is no pressure or less than 35lbs of pressure on the fuel rail with the key in the "ON" position the fuel pump is faulty. If there is more than 45 lbs of pressure on the rail you have the same problem and the safety is killing the fuel pump to prevent damage.

There is no vacuum to the controls. Look for a vacuum hose that is no longer connected to the engine intake manifold and repair it.

It could be a few things. When it is warm put your hand in the center of the radiator if it is warm good if it is cold the radiator is plugged.
It could be the thermostat which is the cheapest or the big problem it could also be head gaskets.
