Posted by Anonymous on
Disconnect the battery cables then go to your power distribution box and disconnect the cable and clean it use 0000 that' 4/0 steel wool and alcohol on the cable lug to get it shiny do the same for your battery cables and terminals////DO NOT USE A WIRE BRUSH THEY RIP YOUR TERMINALS AND BATTERY POST TO SHREDS AND WILL MAKE THEM LOOSE FITTING A SIMPLE WIPE DOWN WITH ALCOHOL AND THE STEEL WOOL WILL DO IT because so many things at once it sounds like a corrosion issue here that not enough current is getting through to support all the electrical devices

The system just needs to get all the air pockets out if you switched everything like you said look around where the radiator hose meets where you put the thermostat in, there should be something on the lines of a little nipple with a 8 mm bolt on it i will have to pull up the exact setup of your Taurus but its the same general concept your car is fine you just have a big air pocket , what else you can do is while its cold right now and the car isnt running is to go take the radiator cap off the radiator and see if the antifreeze is low now that the car has cold down since you last ran it. If so feel it up top it off in the radiator and it might hurp it self and remove the air pocket all on its own... If you need any more help feel free im always on here id be glad to help more in detail once you try that and look under the hood for the bleeder ( the thing with the nipple on it) Also if you could please rate me i would greatly appreciate it.

needs a vehicle speed sensor, its on the trans. if the engine was just put in( within like 2 or 3 days, not weeks) then it may have been busted in the engine swap. hope this helps and good luck

plus one on the cooling fan problem. if it was low on charge then as you slow down, condensor temps and line prressures would raise therefore it would cool at low speed and and not when moving since the incoming air would drop system temp,reducing line pressure and then cusing compressor to cycle. the auxillary cooling fans must be on whenever a/c is on, if not, thats your problem. get this taken care of because if you get stuck in traffic, your engine will overheat also if fans are not running
