Question Starter location 95 Taurus

I have a 95 Taurus that will not turn over (not even a click) the lights, gauges etc all work. I do not have the car here and would like to know what I need to take with and where the starter is located. Also, any direction on where I can locate a wiring diagram for a 95 Taurus on line would be great.

Can't tell you much without the engine size.....

See the link in my signature file for more information.

I believe the engine is the big V6. I don't have the car handy.

That would be a 3.8, over the base 3.0 it could also have.

Eeek, the 3.8 is the gasket blower (head gasket failure prone).

Either way, check autolibrary, print out the starter R&R instructions and take them with you to the car.

It's a piece of cake job regardless of engine size.

You'll need a 3/8" drive ratchet with a 13mm deep socket to remove the starter bolts & the battery cable nut. You'll need a 10 or 11mm socket to remove the small wire from the solenoid. You'll need a 5/16" or 8mm wrench or socket to disconnect the battery.

You'll also need a jack and a set of safety stands.

Thumbs up

The starter is on the front side of the motor. It is very easy to get too! The problem you discribe sounds like the solenoid went bad. Not crossing the power to engage starter. Good luck!
