I am having problems with my Taurus. When I go to start it, it will turn over making a grinding noise but wont start. Every time I try to start it, it makes a grinding noise. It was working fine yesterday afternoon.

Ok first check the battery voltage make sure you have 12 or more. If this is ok then I would remove the battery and take it to your local parts store and have it tested to make sure it is holding a good load. Call around first to make sure they test battery's and starters. Then if that tests ok remove the starter and have them test it. Let me know how it goes.
