Car stalled while stopped at a red light??

ford Taurus stalled while stopped at a red light?? Car stalled while stopped at a red light??

I have a 94 ford taurus 3.8 The car war running fine and i came to a stop light, then my car just stalled out. it didn't sputter or buck just died. I tried to start it back up but nothing. The starter did even click or nothing. I took the starter out and got it tested and turns out it was bad. I didn't put the other one in yet being it was to late to get one.



Also when the car died i still had power. The lights didn't dim or anything in fact it's a brand new battery. I did realize that i was low on coolant but the temp gauge didn't not read hot. Could of my motor seized up. I don't know what it does when a motor seizes up.

When a motor seizes it does just that. Stops. If your coolant is low enough it will never show a temp reading on the gauge. The coolant has to be high enough to touch
the temp gauge bulb to send a reading.
