its your cooling fan.....typical sound on a gen3/4 taurus.
Yeah that's what I meant. Althought I thought the Taurus still used a mechanically driven fan?Originally posted by the_spy_guy@Mar 30 2004, 11:52 PM
there is no fan belt.....electric motors
if your refering to theserpintene belt, thats not mit either because it all stops spinning almost instantly (along with the engine)
I have my Explorer on the brain too much. You'd think I'd know more about the Taurus since it's the one that breaks all the time.Originally posted by 96lsw@Apr 5 2004, 06:07 PM
I've heard this noise since the car was new - for more than 140,000 miles, so it's not something wrong. My original thought was a fan spooling down in the ventilation system.
I got a chuckle out of the response about a mechanically driven fan in a Taurus - ? Perhaps Majesto was just pulling our leg. . .
With my Flowmasters, if I'm backed into my parking spot in Drexel's garage, up against the wall, and I pop the gas right before I shut the engine down, I get some awesome sounds. I love it!Originally posted by sfblacksel@Apr 5 2004, 07:08 PM
I love that power down sound. It kind of reminds me of a jet engine powering down. There is no way that is the fans, because sometimes have the key in the run position while the engine is off and the fans run. It is a totally different sound. It has to be either the tranny fluid or the oil pressure letting easing off. It is perfectly normal in a Taurus.
