Re: Dash display "Mlile to **"

You need to provide more information. What kind of car is it? What year and trim level?

Not directly, no. Fuse #37 is for the Transmission Position Switch, and #38 is the GEM Park/Neutral Switch.

Re: Tachometer sticking

The tachometer receives a signal from the powertrain control module, or PCM, and unless I'm mistaken, the PCM receives RPM signals from the crankshaft position sensor. The crankshaft position sensor, or CKP, is mounted on the engine front cover, connected to the crankshaft via a wheel with 35 little...

Re: Low fuel light - 2002 Taurus

The easiest thing to do is to not let the tank get near empty. I try not to let mine get below a quarter tank, but when I first bought my 2000 FFV Taurus, the little Flex Fuel-only module behind the radio didn't work, and since it allowed the gauge to read accurately whether the tank has gas or E-85...

Re: 2000 Taurus leaking oil

Bill, if you haven't stopped driving it already, do so NOW. If the hose from the gas tank to the vapor canister has been disconnected, or it broke, it means raw gas fumes are leaking into the atmosphere; that's what it collects, and then when the canister pressurizes to a certain level, a valve open...

Re: Power windows , locks

First point of failure for ANY electrical part in a door is the wiring. I'd check to see if you can find any breaks between the door and the body; the switch could be bad for the window, but only the wiring would make both lock and window not work.

The normal range is only about 25-30 feet. How far away are you trying to unlock your car from?

I've never done that before. Is it something easily replaced, or would a trip to a repair shop be in order?

2011 Taurus HVAC clicking

A few months ago, my mother's 2011 Taurus started making this clicking noise on the passenger side whenever you either shut off the HVAC or switch it to recirculate; something, behind the glovebox by the sound of it, clicks for a few seconds and then stops. The system has manual controls, and it sti...

Re: Door Latch Lubrication

Wow. Good luck. I am about to go over 317k on my five hundred. I bought my mom a 2003 taurus Vulcan in 2003. Still has it and it runs great. Has a leaky timing cover though. Got the money approved for the repair. 8) You might want to have someone look at that timing cover; those leaks are only goin...

That's good to know; I'll try that after it comes back from getting the engine rebuilt. Her cylinder heads are warped from overheating; the water pump failed, the engine overheated in the -30 windchill yesterday, and the heads are egg-shaped now, so they have to be replaced. And so does the water pu...

Re: Knocking under acceleration

My 2000 Flex Fuel Taurus does the same thing; I just tune it out, since I know it has a vacuum leak and it runs fine other than the sound. Plus, if it was a horrible sign of impending disaster, somebody would've said something to me after the many oil changes, tire replacements and other things I've...

Door Latch Lubrication

So, my 2000 Taurus with 142k miles decided she doesn't like to keep her front doors shut when it's below 20 or so degrees. I know after almost 20 years, the "lube" in the door latch's internal mechanism is probably total crap by now, if it's even still there. :? After she warms up, it's fine, but it...

Re: What is mounted to the underside of the trunk

That's your vapor canister. It's part of your evaporative emission control system.

From the Haynes Repair Manual: "The evaporative emission control system traps and holds fuel vapors that would otherwise escape to the atmosphere during normal operation" (unless it's not working, of course).

Re: Recommended oil weight 2007 Taurus plus P0193 code

As far as oil capacity, the owner's manual says 4.5 quarts for the Vulcan, 5.5 for the Duratec. The recommended weight for your oil with be on the engine somewhere (usually the oil fill cap). As for error code P0193... that's a engine control code. High circuit input on the injector pressure sensor....

Re: how to program a new dash cluster to my 06 taurus?

If you're refering to the instrument cluster, you don't "program" it. It's just gauges hooked to the wiring harness for the sensors. Plug it in and go; just make sure you make note of the original mileage before you swap them out.
