Re: PI VIN Search

I'd even spend $ if it resulted in information either good or bad. Knowledge is important with a few items on these.

Re: Headlight bulbs upgrade? 2014 PI Sedan

I put these LEDs in. https://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/Sabe ... 006-LED-PR Way better than stock, but you can tell they're not as good as in reflector lenses.
I ordered their Ultra HIDs because they claim they'll be better in the projectors. I have their HIDs or LEDs in all my other vehicles.

PI VIN Search

Anyone have the ability to track where this VIN started and it's sale history? If it flipped a few times, I want to try to the issues with it. Water pump failures are a typical "change the oil and flip it back to auction" move. 1FAHP2MT6EG182953

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

Re: Dropped it off for the water pump...

You mean $500 dollar chain and guides. That's what they wanted extra to do it. Nope. $44 chain. And didn’t need to change guides or tensioner, looked new, but I did because I wasn’t sending them back. Less than $100 for chain, 4 guides and a tensioner. Autopartsnation (Tousley ford) or tasca ford.

Re: Headlight switch automatic lights upgrade PI sedan

So did it work for anyone? About to by the switch and get ready for possible install I just changed the switch. On all the time. No reprogramming yet. Probably won't either. Saves me coloring the sensor with a magic marker to get the lights to come on when they should be coming on. Worst thing that...

Engine didn't "need" to come out. They didn't put in a $40 chain and $10 guides when they were already there?

I compare everything from my 13 to a SHO. If it's an upgrade, I replace with that.

Re: Headlight switch automatic lights upgrade PI sedan

Yeah, I searched the webz and youtubez too. Take the knee panel off Reach up behind the switch (small hands help). I had a remote start box in the way also. Feel for the three larger fingers on the larger soft bezel surrounding the switch. You can squeeze two of them at a time and push the bezel out...

It's only slightly easier because we have no #26 bolt as shown in this pic.

Re: $$$ for a water pump/timing set change?

$170 in parts (I replaced extra parts because I subscribed to the "since you're already there" theory). 12 hours, engine stays in, but gets jacked up and down. Common tools except the balancer puller and a decent small torque wrench. Putting the cover back after placing the sealant on it is the most...

Re: 2014 Ford Taurus PI "De-Policing"

An in service, fully equipped squad with one suspect, squats about perfect. Same as if I add 5 bags of softener salt in the trunk. If the cars weren't meant to be loaded or ride at that height, Ford engineers clearly made a mistake and forgot to consult with the forums on these interwebs.

Re: Headlight switch automatic lights upgrade PI sedan

If I can't make this work, I'll just put a relay in the main wire to the headlight switch triggered by the key so I can just leave the switch on all the time, it will automatically go off when the key is off. Right now if you buy a headlight switch with auto headlights, the headlights will turn on ...

Re: center console ?, also, service manual needed

uzi4life, yes it will fit and close the gab, but you need to retain the a/c temp fan part from the police console and use tubing under the console to get air flow. I've done two like this and they look great. We have no air out the console vents in back or power to the power port under the arm rest...

Searching across forums?

How do you search across forums on this site?
For one instance; the PIs and SHOs that have the same engine, I want to search common issues without searching each individually. Maybe I'm doing it wrong?

Thanks
