REAL CAR PROBLEMS !!!!!

'88 Ford Taurus V6 with starting problem. After the car has been ran then turned off, when the key is turned the engine makes a rattle/clicking noise. I'm thinking it's the starter or starter cylinoid, BUT, the car
can be jump started. While driving the engines temp. gage in the dash stays on hot and the oil light comes on only when the car slows down or comes to a stop. Ther is oil in the car. Sometimes in reverse the car dies. When bought the guy selling said it needs an oxygen sensor and that he thinks the problem might be one of the battery cables.

check all your battery cable connections, making sure they are all clean. and ignore the idiot with the smartass comments.

Stop India, China from growing then chase the Farmers spreading tonnes of fertilizer & the home owners still relying upon fossil fuels to heat and operate their homes if Kyota's your goal, this car (if it isn't within spec, & it doesn't say that it isn't BTW) is small peanuts in the delusional chase of reduce global warming by emissions reductions.
No one has proven that the sun's output has remained constant, or that the switch from burning wood & coal to petroleum products has resulted in the worlds recent small temperature change. Look at world history (50,000 plus years) the temperature does not stay constant. As always those that will thrive will adapt, Those that won't........
Sorry but Kyoto's a failure without China or India meeting the standards. That and you can't do an accurate x=y equation if you don't even know all of the x's.
What happen's when every nation is in compliance with Koyto & the global temperature keeps going up? What then? Everyone move to caves?
You in Alberta should be the last to talk, shame on you and your province for burning Natural gas to extract oil from the Tar Sands when Geothermal or Fission Reactors are available.
Have YOU planted a tree lately?

The reality of the situation is that the data overwhelmingly show that global warming is real. There have been a number of articles in Science magazine about it lately. And the New York Times has had several articles about global warming, too. They are often in the Science Times section on Tuesdays.

global cooling. There were lots of articles then as well. So how can you say for sure we are on a global warming trend?

Low voltage/amperage to the starter solenoid (check cables & battery)

Check the wiring, some vehicles use a ground resistance system for sending unit. A grounding of this wire in these vehicles will cause the gauge to stay on hot

Low oil pressure or faulty sending unit (VW diesels were notorious for this in the mid 1980's)

Start with a tuneup, check idle speed etc.

Sometimes when people sell cars they "forget" the problems the car has.
good luck
