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?

There are lots of reasons for poor mileage, what are you getting and what is your driving style?

You probably caught it in time then, if your oil is good you will likely be able to save it.

Re: Spurious Check Engine Light?

FYI clearing the codes isn't actually fixing anything (even temporarily) BTW, it merely resets the monitors so if nothing is fixed it is expected the check engine light will return after the monitors are complete.

How did you check for vacuum leaks? Have you scanned for diagnostic codes yet? You could use a scan tool to monitor live readings that may assist in diagnosing.

Re: Oil Pressure Low

I wouldn't condemn the sensor right away, it could be a wiring or connector issue. If you have a scan tool, check the sensor reading that way too. But it could be a faulty sensor.

Re: Oil Pressure Low

Next up is to locate and inspect the oil pressure sender and associated wiring. Inspect for breaks, chafing, corrosion, etc. Repair as required. Then, get a mechanical oil pressure gauge and connect it, see if you actually have oil pressure. If you do, check your sending unit (replace?). If you don'...

The Taurus is officially DEAD (again)!

LastTaurus08.jpg The Taurus is dead, officially guys. :( I hope you like trucks, crossovers & SUVs because Ford thinks you don't deserve the Taurus anymore. Just wait until gas prices go up again, Ford will not be in a good position... Sigh. What do you think of the Taurus dying off? What would you...

Re: Get better Mpg

EcoBoost is a little bit of bogus marketing. Think of it as Eco OR Boost, but not both at the same time. EcoBoost is simply a marketing name, it really doesn't mean much in reality. There is no EcoBoost mode or feature, it's just what they call the engine because it has a turbocharger. So either dri...

The octane rating has nothing to do with whether it’s top tier or not. https://www.toptiergas.com/why_top_tier/

Re: How I made my P0430 go away...for $15.99.

Just out of curiosity did you clear the code or did the light go away on it’s own? You can use a scan tool to monitor fuel trims to see if it really did fix the issue. Hopefully it stays gone. Do you use cheap gas or top tier gas? I only buy top tier gas now in all my vehicles in the hopes of preven...
