Following a youtube video by Scotty somebody, I ran a gallon of lacquer thinner through with 1/2 a tank...Well, it worked for me with no negative effects.

YMMV
you're braver than me. my 2013 just started throwing the P0420 code

Re: 2018 SHO Door alignment and fit & finish.

...It is like they just slapped the car together on a Friday afternoon. LOL. there's an old saw/old wives' tale that you should never buy a car that's made on a Monday or Friday - some swear by it. in days gone by i seem to remember you could read the build date off of the Monroney sticker, but now...

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

True perspectives. Very funny on "hide the salami"! :lol: Most of the SEs are going to fleet eventually... what the sales director means is that eventually, a leasing company like PHH or similiar will buy those cars off of them at fleet pricing which includes the $500 Ford Fleet discount and triple...

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

Getting dealers to respond is near impossible. All the above may be valid but only up to a point...Many 2018’s have been on lots 350+ days now and are still listed around $22K. fleet depts are more likely to respond than the regular dealership sales folks - that being said, the majority of tower sa...

Re: 2015 Taurus AWD - Alignment "changes" under acceleration

With a front wheel drive car, sounds like a bad motor mount to me - though I could be wrong. You may want to run a Carfax on it if you already haven't. Just go to Ebay and buy one for like $3. there's some free sites on the interwebs but they don't always give you all reported accidents. https://vin...

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

Pro Tips for Car Buying: In no particular order (from a former industry sales trainer): If buying from Ford (or other major mfg) try obtaining a FLEET NUMBER. Back in the day, just having this number was worth a minimum of $500 https://www.fleet.ford.com/get-started/eligibility-documentation/ https...

Re: First test ride

You would either need to remove that bar like I did, or cut out the foam on the rear seat bottom to make the seat fit over the bar. As far as the ac for the rear seats. It’s very simple. When installing the center console there is a duct that is capped off under the panel where your 12v outlets are...

Re: New kid in town

If you go with a civi console, you'll have zero fitment issues with the car navi unit. I had to do some trimming to retain my PI cover... Mine is a model M276, only has Android 4.4. I'm jealous if they have an 8.0 version now! You can read up on them at forums.roadnav.com. Mine is the S160 version....

Re: New kid in town

What's the check engine light for? Also what are your engine hours? You may need to change the coolant pump soon It threw the P0420 code a few days after I bought it. Coincidentally after an oil change and me adding Seafoam to the gas tank. It's Bank 1 - with any luck it'll be the 02 sensor. with b...

When you get ready to remove the spotlight send me a message I would be interested in buying it from you. you might get a better deal on ebay - unity has been making those spotlights forever. this one has a flaky on/off switch. i was going to remove and stow it for when i decide to sell the vehicle...

I have not seen that radio. Not sure if it will work in the fpis. Looks like it’s for the civilian set up. I was only aware of the havis model for the interceptor which is $3600. I’m very curious if this radio will fit. going to email the mfg - i'll let you know if i get a response. thanks for the ...

New kid in town

So glad to have found your forum! Just came into ownership of a new to me 2013 VSP AWD 3.5L sedan with 139k miles. In overall good condition - runs strong and no accidents according to Carfax. Got a fairly good deal on it from a used car dealer - hope to do some mods and "civilian-ize" it a bit over...
