Hello, What year is your Taurus? Thanks, CarGrrl


possibly the idler pulley bearing or alternator bearing. be very careful and listen with a long screwdriver.


sometimes its nothing....some cars just squeak for no reason...it doesnt mean there is something wrong w/ ur car


if its a squeal similar to a belt noise and this is a 3.0 its a cam synchronizer. replace both the synchro and sensor, but i would recomend having a trained tech do the repair, alignment tools are needed for this replacement. improper alignment can lead to altered timing, driveability issues, and possible parts damage. parts are about 250-300bucks for both
