Do 2017 Taurus SE's have the wiring for parking lights?
I just bought a brand new 2017 SE. It doesn't have parking lamps. Does anyone know if the wiring is there for a plug and play set from a donor car or ebay? I don't want to do any splicing or wiring. Just want to pop in the donors and plug them in if that's an option. thanks...

Hi all, 2005 500 se awd 88,000 miles. When I get in the car in the morning, that is in the garage, and I go to start it, it starts to stutter and will not come up to idle.

Accessing 2006 Taurus check engine codes
Hello, I have a 2006 Ford Taurus which just had the check engine light come on. How can I retrieve the fault codes without putting on a scanner? I tried Press and Hold RESET and SETUP and turned key to run. It entered the Test and I was able to step through via pressing the Reset for advancing. I did not get any P##...

Loose Oil Filter Cause Low Oil Pressure?
Last weekend my "Low Oil Pressure" light came on. The car ran good with no noise, clanking, etc. It turned off after a minute. The following day it came back on and stayed on. Oil level was a quart short because I had valve cover leaks I fixed in the week before so I added a quart then I replaced the oil pressure sensor sin...

HI fellows, a month ago I replaced my tired from good year Eagle RS-A to cooper cs5 ultra touring. I balanced them and aligned all 4 tires. last week I took a road trip and noticed that the steering wheel vibrates at +65MPH.

Rubber tube hanging in engine
Hi everybody, I have a '05 Five Hundred with the Aisin 6-speed transmission. I just saw recently in my engine compartment a loose tube hanging around the transmission dipstick, ending just in front of the radiator near the exhaust manifold. I have a picture attached (see right dead center of picture). It seems to originate ...

About to pull trigger, any areas to look out for?
Long time lurker, quite possibly about to pull the trigger on a 2013 Twin Turbo. 160K miles. I want to take it to a mechanic to have them check out before buying. Any first hand knowledge of what I need to look out for, consider? I know the water pump is an issue, any other big pricey items to look deeper into? Many th...

Sync 2 to Sync 3 Upgrade on 2015 model
Just bought 2nd SHO (first being a 2010). This one is a 2015. Love the car, disappointed in the Sync 2. No digital speedometer, no AWD power distribution indicator, and no TPMS gauge for each wheel. BTW... wife's 2015 Edge Sport has all of them. Contemplating a Sync 2 to Sync 3 upgrade. $1800 online. Install not for ...

Transmission trouble, game over for 2005 500?
The 2005 car with 6-speed AT has 146,000 miles. The transmission fluid was changed at 100,000 miles. Last week I started noticing an issue. While cruising at 30-50 mph, if I give it some gas, or the road starts going uphill, the car hesitates to downshift, there is some shacking and shudder going on, always reproducible. Th...

2008 taurus x power drain
I am having power drain problems that the ford dealer has no idea about. If I leave my car for 4 or 5 days the battery will have 9 volts or less and will not start without a jump or recharge. I know other people have had this problem. Has anybody been able to figure out this problem?...

Missing options on Sync on 2015 Taurus SHO
The 2015 SHO is my second one; had a 2010 as well. Concerned because the dash display is lacking. No digital speedometer; no TPMS readout; and no AWD power distribution. All of these features are in my wife's 2015 Ford Edge Sport. Checked the myFord site to see if there are any updates and there are none. Since Microso...

12 Tuxedo black SHO. Loud thump while driving
I have a 12 SHO with 57k. Since about 40k the car would make a loud thumping noise and the car will vibrate like it just ran over a monster pothole. It was very random when it first started but now it happens every single day, even when I reverse into park it would do the same thing once in a while. I took it to the dealer...

Squeaking blower motor in 2005 Taurus
I have a really bad squeaking blower motor on my 2005 Taurus Se. Was curious if it just needs to be lubed up or if it's going bad. My blower motor resistor is bad which I have the new one to put in, just haven't done it yet. All help is appreciated, TIA....

Brake caliper deal
I picked up a set of rotors and pads last month for my Flex from a Flex forum member. They are Brake Motive drilled & slotted. When I got them my plan was to just hang on to them until needed. After I got them last month both rear calipers took turns hanging up! I decided to shop around for calipers and found this deal....

Hi all- Just joined this forum. Posted this on another Taurus forum. I have an 86 Taurus MT-5 in my yard that my father bought brand new. It was last driven in 2008. It is needs work or could be a parts car? Anyone interested in it? I am located in Burlington, New Jersey. My father doesn’t want to see the car junked and ma...
