Sounds like to me that you need a new blower for the fan, the car needs a
tune up and you might want to get the transmission checked.

A little more information might be helpful -

What year model?
Which engine?
How many miles?
New or used?
As the vehicle been properly maintained?

Does the AC not blow at all - or is it just not cold?

Sputtering indicates a performance problem, which can cause the poor
shifting.

If you don't know anything about cars, you probably should have taken it to
a competent mechanic who could diagnosis the problems.

You are living in a fantasy world if you think only Fords have problems.
Without proper maintenance any vehicle can have problems.

Regards,

Did you check the fuses? If the fuses are good, the next logical thing to do
is to make sure that there is power at the fan speed control resistor
assembly (when the fan is switched on of course).

Re: HELP!! A MILLION PROBLEMS WITH 96 TAURUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

its a 1996 v6 3.0 80,000 miles used it was in great shape when bought so
far have replaced starter heater core blower and resivore tank on my own
and the ac doesnt blow at all i had a new head put on bc it was an
overheating problem then it needed a new heater core and somehow the
resivore tank cracked so now all that is fixed it just wont blow. i think
i might have knocked something loose. it was blowing fine but a few weeks
ago i was backing out the drive way and i didnt cut it sharp enough aand
the front kind of bumped after that the blower quit

Re: HELP!! A MILLION PROBLEMS WITH 96 TAURUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

after i found that the blower itsself wasnt the problem i kept the new one
of course and went back to auto zone the guy there put in a few sensor
fuses?? i cant remember exactly the name but i know they had fuse in it.
and also when u turn it on you dont hear anything but when u turn it off
you can like air pressure letting go its kinda like sssssss for about 2-3
seconds so im pretty sure the switches are good

The hiss is from the refrigerant in the A/C system equilizing in the hoses
and evaporator. It proves nothing about whether the blower fan is working.

Please confirm, the problem is that the blower fan is not blowing air
nomatter whether you are on heat or A/C.

I am not familar with late model Tarui (but then I do not know which year
Taurus you are working on - do I). However, generally Ford locates the fan
speed control resistors in the A/C plenum, so I would look in that area. You
can always trace the wires from the blower motor back to the fan speed
control ressitor assembly. Or, maybe you should get a repair manual. You
could also purchase a 3 day suspscription from the Motorcraft Website that
will give you access to the Taurus repair manual (see
http://www.motorcraftservice.com/vdi...il/default.asp ). And in the
recent past, some guy posted links to Ford repair manual CDs on line (
http://www.fordcds.com/ ) for free (probably not legal). In addition to the
resistor pack, there are also relays in the system that could be the source
of your problem (relays #3 and #28 in the underdash fue panel for a 2000
Taurus for instance). What year Taurus are you working on? Does it have
automatic tempeature control?

Sounds to me like you had one problem that mushroomed into a disaster. Most
likely the previous owner did not properly maintain the car. I'll bet the
coolant was not changed per the Ford specifications, or possibly the car was
overheated which directly lead to the failed headgasket. A leaking
headgasket can add corrosive agents to the cooling system which will
accelerate the failure of the heaters core. Replacing the heater core
involves tearing the entire dash apart. I'd guess that whoever did the work
did not properly seat one of the connectors in the blower motor circuit (or
they damaged it), so that when you hit the bump, it came loose. I'd start
looking for loose connectors myself before I changed any more parts.

I've never seen a reservoir tank just crack on its own, so I'd guess that
was probably damaged by whoever did the previous works as well. I think you
need to find a new mechanic. I think for every one thing they are fixing,
they are breaking two.
