Re: Leaking waterpump and caughing and sputtering on hard acceleration

id recommend a pi to anyone who's cost conscious.......really great cars for the money. i dont buy into the incessant fear about pump failure as the fail rate is low; unfortunately, in this case, your potential car is a known issue

Re: Leaking waterpump and caughing and sputtering on hard acceleration

any of the local yards- even lkq or ebay w free delivery. in my area, youre looking at about $600-700 for a 3.5/3.7 with less than 30,000 miles and a 6 mo warranty. i have a 9000 mi spare in the corner of my garage.....got it for $475. i can drop it in over a weekend if the OE craps out and sell par...

Re: Leaking waterpump and caughing and sputtering on hard acceleration

ah, you didnt say you were experienced in chain driven pump repairs.....that definitely changes the calculus. i still dont know why youd spend the $200 in materials plus 10-15 hrs in labor (roughly, for home mech) to repair a 100k engine that might have compromised bearings and definitely has runnin...

Re: Leaking waterpump and caughing and sputtering on hard acceleration

run away. the only certain repair is a new motor.

even with a pump replace (which doesnt make any $ sense over a replacement motor) bearings could have been exposed to coolant and youd be #*!&%$

he could be changing the oil after every test drive........

Re: 08 Taurus SEL 2WD Rear Strut

I swear they make engineering decisions to keep the average Joe from being able to do the work anymore.
Based on a quick search (and there are a couple youtube videos out there) it looks like others disassembled their new quick strut and reassembled in place. That's just crazy to me........

Re: What measures can be taken to prevent a water pump failure?

bad design...... low frequency, but high damage. youll have to weigh the value proposition. if you get one, change coolant more often than recommended. regarding pump replacement.....makes no sense AT ALL to preemptively replace the pump. replacement costs more in parts than a new motor and takes ju...

Re: center console ?, also, service manual needed

re: console harness - it's been years since I did mine so take my memory with a grain of salt. The civi console harness (female) doesn't have a matching PI (male) harness. You just bypass that and wire in your electronics after tracing your wires. The console may well have the sync module/etc. that ...

Re: Overheating, second verse

I think you'll see a lack of responses as you're posting in the 2010+ taurus forum. We're better versed in the current gen 3.5/3.7 than your modular 4.6 (I believe that's what all the last CV's had, right?). You'd probably be better off looking for a CV.....or CVPI......page for help.

Re: Changing wheel Size?

yea, no problem - you can see a list of all OEM wheel offerings for the 2013 taurus online. 18's are probably the easiest to find used.

Actually, you can set your wheel size in forscan so that your speedo/mileage is most accurate

Re: 2013 Taurus interceptor radio upgrade

Can't answer your question, I've never seen it done. You'd have to wire in a Sync module as well......

Could you post links to the examples of people going from 4.2 non-sync to 8" sync? I'd love to take a look. If doable, I'll upgrade and post a step by step.

if no heated mirror/blind spot/puddle, you're in better (cheaper) shape than most. in fact, if you buy ebay/used the painted covers can be popped off and reinstalled on the new unit if different colors. from inside the car, just remove the panel cover and there are three bolts - remove the nuts, exp...

Penel, just cruising my replys - i don't believe I see where you've answered the sync question. Is your vehicle equipped with sync? If not, no OE hardware swap (4", 8", Sync 1/2/3) will work for you. *Permanent disclaimer, people are reverse engineering and FORSCAN updating daily - while I've not se...

definitely a DIY. SUPER easy! you'll need to make sure you get the right part though - it'll be based on your option level. 1) all should be electric, but who knows 2) puddle lamp 3) blind spot monitoring 4) ? Depending on your combination of the above options, that will inform which part you need t...
