Re: Used an oil additive, engine sounds rougher at 1200-2k rpm

Anytime I do something with my PIS that affects the engine mechanically and electronically, I would disconnect the battery for a few minutes. For some reason, my PIS is ultra picky on changes and disconnecting the battery resolves my issues. Gave it a try, no difference :/ Wondering if I should tak...

Re: 2013 Taurus Water Pump Failure

The 2014+ ones still fail (I've seen many cars) just that now you have 2 gaskets so 2 things to fail instead of 1 That's unfortunate... Ford should have redesigned that water pump as soon as they knew it was an issue The way all car manufacturing works is stuff is built DOWN to a certain level. Oh ...

Thanks will give it a shot tonight, and listen to some other cars if they make the same noise.

Re: 2015 key fob PI

Hello all! First time posting, been lurking for a bit. Well my question is, I just got issued a 2015 ford Taurus police interceptor. It has a standard key, no chip. I bought two key fobs from amazon and am trying to program them. It appears I need to use the forscan program. My first question is ca...

Used an oil additive, engine sounds rougher at 1200-2k rpm

I ran some BG109 for 10 mins at 1200rpm like recomended in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3-NOGZL8ms and noticed after the oil was changed the engine sounds rougher at 1200-2000 rpm, but it doesn't feel any different driving and I don't hear anything at other RPM's. Did I break somethin...

Re: 2013 Taurus Water Pump Failure

Indeed... they should have retained the external water pump style of the 3.0 Duratec. That's an easy pump to service! I had heard that the newer models, somewhere around 2014 ish or so had gone to double roller chains and beefed up shafts on the water pumps, and were not as prone to such failures.....

Re: 2013 Taurus Water Pump Failure

I have a 2013 Ford Taurus with the oh so WONDERFUL 3.5. It has 145,000 miles on it. On Saturday I noticed that there was a dime size amount of coolant on the ground underneath it. Immediately knew the water pump had to be the culprit. After some investigating I could not locate where the coolant wa...

Re: Ptu leak

So I recently started to smell a weird burning smell when the air is on, only at idle. I have a feeling the ptu is leaking on the exhaust. I believe I read somewhere that the interceptors have a sensor to monitor ptu temp. Is that true? I'm gonna climb underneath tonight to check it out. What's the...

Re: So these cars are not called Taurus anymore?

Correct, the police version does not use the Taurus name at all. Which, by the way, Ford does not make the (Taurus) police sedan anymore. Similarly, the police Explorer does not use the Explorer name, it is called the Police Interceptor Utility, and the Fusion is called the Police Responder Hybrid ...

I went to scrap yard but had no luck and the dealer sold me the wrong parts for $192.00. Everything missing to the OEM Connector. I have attached a few photos. ...

Re: What MPG is everyone getting?

Have you scanned for diagnostic codes? Check your tire pressures, alignment in spec? Correct factory tire size? etc. Are you tracking fuel economy manually using km driven & liters used vs dash readout? I check everything manually and with dash. Tires are basically new but I had winter's on recentl...

i've resigned myself to the fact that I am not going to get much better than 18-19 mpg in the city.

but, Prius mileage isn't why we bought our PIs did we?
Yeah but being in Canada a fill up cost me $90 today, if I was out west it'd be almost $120

There are lots of reasons for poor mileage, what are you getting and what is your driving style?
The MPG equivalent is 14 city and about 20 highway.

What’s the source of the $600 engine? I’d like a spare 3.7l to put in when I decide to replace the water pump. Maybe rotate them every 100K.
