Re: surging 1997 Taurus

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...

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

I've heard if you want less haggling / hassle contact the fleet sales manager directly. Tell them you're a cash buyer, want a straight up price and you're shopping around. You don't even need to set foot in the dealer until the deal is basically done that way. I truly think the future of car buying ...

Re: What type of anti-freeze?

The water pump is a crazy expensive cost to replace. If in doubt just spend a bit more $ now and get the right fluid from the dealer so you don’t have to worry about it. We haven’t been able to determine the best practices to help prevent or delay the water pump failure. Change your coolant at prope...

Re: Cold Air Intake in PI?

Not a Taurus but it applies - https://youtu.be/NJKlb61_kXU - I no longer spend money on oiled air filters, they are bad.

Most people don't realize but the stock air intake is a cold air intake.

Is that a Dorman manifold? A Ford part is best if you plan on keeping the car a long time.

Re: Anyone ever flush their PTU???

The safest flush is to change the fluid and then change it again shortly thereafter. Personally I wouldn’t risk things by using additives like those you mentioned.

I thought all PI’s had a drain plug??
