Oh I think you mean "Flex Fuel"?? The Flex is a station wagon Ford model.

Re: Just bought a 2005 500

I'm in Canada, I pretty much buy 90% of my auto parts from either RockAuto or Amazon.ca, the rest is local/dealer depending on what it is. RockAuto is upfront about duty/tax/shipping on the checkout page.

Re: 2013 Taurus Water Pump Failure

That's unfortunate... Ford should have redesigned that water pump as soon as they knew it was an issue And Ford should have put more threads for the spark plug in the 97-03 F150 V8 heads. They knew about that problem for years but didn't fix it until about 2003 I think. Then came the brutal 5.4L 3V...

Re: 2013 Taurus Water Pump Failure

Consider yourself lucky it didn't wipe out the entire engine, some folks have had to pay $7,000 for a new engine. This is a horrible design from Ford. It's not a super common failure but when it fails it's expensive and can be catastrophic for the engine. In the old days a water pump failure would b...

Re: Cannot re-program old keys on new ECU

Couldn't you tow it to the dealer and pay them for less than $1200? Personally I don't mess with that stuff, it's not worth the risk.

You might want to look into ForSCAN to see if it will do what you want.

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 S...

Were you able to duplicate the jerking motion while watching the misfire counts? You want to watch the misfire counts as you duplicate the concern. I'm not familiar with the P1124 code, it may be related. I see P1124 Throttle Position Sensor Out of Self-Test Range @ Ford OBD Codes . I suppose if the...

Re: Transmission question

Is the P1299 a current, pending or permanent code? If it's not current or pending, don't worry about it, it's just historical and to my knowledge can't be cleared (it just tells Ford techs that the engine may have overheated at some point in the past, which I believe they use for warranty claims - a...

Re: Transmission question

I’ve heard the same thing about tapping the brake regarding the F150, I’m sure it would be the same. Check misfire data & fluid condition.

Re: Transmission question

It’s probably a misfire or a torque converter problem then. Check Mode $06 misfire data next https://www.motor.com/magazinepdfs/072011_09.pdf

Re: 2000 Taurus died going down the road

There are no fuel pump diagnostic codes. Can you post the exact codes? I would recommend stop replacing parts and diagnose before buying anything else. For example, if it has spark that's good enough, it doesn't warrant plugs, wires and coil packs if you have spark. The coolant being blown out is co...
