Re: 02 Taurus Alternator
Ford has had issues with fires. I know one was alternator problems, (at the connector, I think) I remember hearing of vehicle fires because of ignition switch problems and if memory serves me correct coil problems too. I don't know how much damage you have, but it will probably be a pain to repair. I've had two vehicle fires that I repaired myself. After the first one, I swore I'd never do it again. When the second one happened, I thought no way!! Next day popped the hood and thought, aww it don't look to bad and fixed it too. Neither one was much fun. If you do the repair yourself, just make sure you check the wires back far enough before splicing into them. Also make sure you do your splices correctly.
