Re: New to me 2014 Taurus PI. What should I watch out for?

people buying from these shitty dealers are raising the prices for everyone. i've been watching the auction prices and individuals and i guess dealers are driving up the prices to like $4-6k. even higher on the wrecked utilities. saw one 2017 salvage title utility on Copart went for like $10k whole...

Re: New SHO owner, water pump failed

try these ambulance chasers. they've filed a class action lawsuit against Ford over the water pump issue.

you get a few sheckels and they get a mountain of gold.

better than nothing i guess.

High engine revving on hard braking - 2013 PI

Had the first road trip in the blues mobile and highway mileage was a decent 25-ish mpg doing between 70 + 80mph. During several points in traffic I had to hard brake from 70+ due to suddenly stopping traffic and noticed that the engine revs maintained high. At first I thought I had somehow hit the ...

Re: Console base plate

pick-a-part is probably your best bet from a civilian and police taurus. you can try calling around to emergency equipment outfitters in your area to see if they have anything laying around. or try the the fleet dept at a police dept.

Re: 2013 PI Ignition conversion

I seem to remember reading on some other boards that this isn't possible with the PIs. just too much differences in the harnesses and programming. not saying that it couldn't be done with a will and $$$ - but your probably much better off going to a decent stereo store and having them install one fo...

Rear end sounds like a wooden sailing ship!

Every now and then I like to drive with the radio/music off so I can listen for any strange noises and sure enough - I am hearing a sound from the right rear of my 2013 PI that sounds like the creaking of a wooden sailing ship - yup, just like what you hear in the movies and on tv. I generally hear ...

Re: Asia Motors Inc. of Melrose Park, IL

they always seem to have good inventory - i have noticed tho, on the really "good" deals you have to check the Carfax for accidents/airbag deployments and title condition. and sometimes if you search on the VIN you'll see where the vehicle was bought from auction or Copart.
