Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
My 2000 Ford taurus has oil fumes under the hood and smell burning oil in the car. how it can be fix?
My suggestion is to make sure there's no oil spilled from putting any in. Take it to a car wash leave engine ON stay away from fuse box and battery tray. Use the engine degreaser mode and wash your engine rinse thoroughly with the rinse mode after. If the problem still occurs. Check to see around top of motor if any smoke is coming out or if fluid is coming from valve cover. If so replace the valve cover gasket which is usually cheap.

probably not. put aluminum seal in the cooling system and top off antifreeze. you may need a hose or fitting from where you are decribing the leak. if the leak stops with the sealant you are good to go. otherwise take it to a shop and they will tell you. do not tell them you think it is a head gasket.

This may be as simple as a split heater hose, you need to locate the leak, check the hoses going into the firwall, the clamps may have eventually pressed into the old hose causing a split. to eliminate this simply replace the heater hoses and clamps, the smell is more than likely coolant leaking onto the exhaust. Check it out, drive safely.

It should be a serpentine belt.Was the belt about 1 inch wide and there are no other belts hooked up when you look under the hood?It connects everything a/c,alternator,power steer,power brakes.If that is the case(1 belt)you will need to contact a Ford dealer or look for a sticker under the hood showing how the belt is routed.Some makers have the sticker,some don't.I don't think my 1995 Ford does though.The belt will be cheaper at a national auto parts store than a dealer if you are going to try to self-repair.Good luck!

Testimonial: "Thank you. This describes the problem exactly as the A/C has been having problems as well as the power steering did not work after the belt broke."
Is there a squealing noise like the pulley may have locked up? Make sure you don't have wiring getting hot.Check all areas near the exhaust and at the firewall area where the EGR piping comes off the exhaust.
Make sure nothing is laying against the exhaust or catalytic converter. don-ohio
