Re: 2002 Taurus cutting off, no pickup, low coolant light
Just bought used 2002 Taurus ses - 134k miles - turned on AC while stopped at light & it cut off but started back up. Cuts off while idling too though, but not every time. Also "Low coolant" light is on but fluid level is actually okay. Today I was "flooring" it while getting on the expressway and it wouldn't go faster than 50 - has no pickup. (I was thinking it was me because I previously drove a Hyundai Tiburon that was super fast. Is it me?) It eventually sped up after I let my foot up off gas and it sounded like it "changed" gears. Has no pickup.
Hello and good day:
First the A/C could be cutting off because you may have a Bad Compressor, for the A/C. Or the Sensor on the Thermostat could be cutting off the Compressor as a safety measure.
Second Check again to make sure the Coolant is up to Level...if ok then your sensor on the Reservoir is bad.
Do you know the Engine Size? I will have to check with others reference to the slow pickup...
Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6
