HELP - Trunk pops open when I hit a bump
[color=#4000FF:2objkoux][b:2objkoux]My trunk lid (not automatic lid) keeps popping open when I hit bumps whenever I am driving. How can I fix this and is it an expensive fix? It used to only happen when it was hot out but now I can't drive anywhere without it popping open on me. It is driving me nuts and I have no idea what...

Need parts website
I ran up a tall curb during a slow speed turn and when i backed off it, the wheel well housing tore off. It also flattened the tire. I'm looking to replace this plastic piece as it is broken in half. There might be additional damage to any of the points where it fastens to whatever. What website do we have to source p...

2013 SEL losing power
Greetings, new to this site. Twice within the past seven days, our 2013 Taurus sel lost power while driving. Wrench icon illuminated and lost acceleration. Engine was still running, all electrical was working. Coasted to a stop, turned off engine for a minute, restarted and all was good. Yesterday, Ford dealership indicat...

Rear Fender Separating From Bumper Cover
Too weird. Have ya’ ever seen this before? It started a few months ago, but it recently has been happening more and more. The rear fender on the driver’s side separates from the bumper cover at the crease where they join. I’ve just been pressing them back together with my fingers when I notice it. At first I thought it...

Ford Ignition Coil Pack Heat Failures & Misfires When Wet
Had a very good example of how this particular coil pack fails from heat over the years. The misfire may be intermittent or only when wet out. Either way this particular coil pack style which is used in the Taurus Windstar and 4.2L F150 all fail the same way. If you have a misfire you are fighting I urge you to take a close...

Checking the fluid level on the cft30 (cvt) transmission
I have a 2006 Ford Five Hundred AWD Limited. I want to check the level of the fluid. The transmission is slightly noisy at start up. Noise goes away after warm up. Last winter I hear some squealing when the fluid was cold. Since the fluid expands a lot when hot, both events suggest to me the fluid level is low. I fina...

Interesting headlight issue
So this morning I hopped into my car, started it, and noticed that my drivers side headlight was out. I checked the fuses under the dash, which were fine, then changed out the bulbs. Still no change. Finally, I swapped the original drivers side and passenger side bulbs, if for no other reason than to show myself that both b...

Lights saga continues
Well on the way home from dinner and a movie last night, we got pulled over by the cops (again) for the upper 3rd being out and half the license plate out. Try explaining I'm waiting 2 weeks for the light, he just kinda looked at me....a look of disbelief it seemed. Told him there was a recall for the plate light ...he gav...
