2011 Taurus SEL extremely low coolant
2011 Ford Taurus SEL Apparently this is what just happened to me. I have a short drive home from work.... about 12 miles. It was cold and I was wondering why my car was not providing any heat.

Radio not working 2016 PI sedan
Hi guys, I recently bought a used 2016 police interceptor sedan. The radio does not work. None of the buttons do anything and the screen just shows the time, date, and temp.

Early water pump leak? 2015 Taurus
Hi, I have a 2015 and noticed the coolant tank was low when I bought the car (idiot move!!) and got a flush and pressure test done at the dealer. The system passed the pressure test when they tried but could also mean only 1 seal failed or something. The level after 2 months has dropped below the min line today. I trie...

I have a 2015 Taurus that's had broken AC for the past while. (How does a 2 year old car have that issue?) According to my mechanics scanner the evap sensor jump from -2 to 3 degrees (~30-36) which causes the ac to shut off to prevent freezing. This is outside during summer temps in a very hot car Here's a screenshot from...

Real help with my transmission fluid
So I have a 2011 Taurus limited. I have had it about 2.5 years. I bought it with 9K miles. It now has 33,000 roughly. No issues with it. But I always worry about transmission fluid changes. I talked to one dealer and they said 60K, and another dealer closer to me said 40K. So do I wait or do I have it done? And will it...
