Re: Strut Replacement in Atlanta

OEM. Specifically do not by aftermarket brands for these particular struts. The mounting bolts on them also snap very easily. It's something any mechanic needs to watch out for no matter how experienced they are. Unless of course he has experience working with these particular struts, and only them.

Re: 2015 Ford Taurus Climate Control Malfunction

upon closer inspection from another free online tsb source, it seems to actually be a faulty connector either way, from either source, you're looking at a relatively simple electrical issue, and not something major. the correct TSB in this case would likely be 14-0060, in case you would want to actu...

Re: Right Front Strut Issues

my post was "literally made up noise" ? how often do clicks continue to happen after an entire strut assembly is replaced? really not often, of course this is assuming that you do not have experience with these particular taurus struts. next logical guess would be the cv, really no doubt about that,...

Re: Right Front Strut Issues

thanks for the info though the info i post on the EAPS failing is not incorrect, which is in another thread and not this one. and i also state that my knowledge is limited when appropriate due to the fact relatively little information is available online. and also these cars are extremely rare to se...

Re: 3.5 L Duratec engine fuel injection

Cant confirm if it's direct injection through the internet alone, but seems that most likely is. As for carbon buildup, most likely your 2016 comes with dual complete injection systems. One to provide fuel directly into the cylinder for normal operation, and the other is a conventional port injector...

Re: V6 Transmission

The EPAS rack seems to be a different model, starting at 2016

Computer probably won't except older ones, though totally just a guess.

Re: Right Front Strut Issues

It seems as if you are being hosed by your mechanic. The noise you describe is much more likely from a CV joint (seems like someone had a little fun with a curb, or other such mishap) But you should also inspect the EAPS rack for damage since there has obviously been some type of collision. Struts d...

Re: Taurus - 2011 Reliability.

More on the EAPS...

It's something to watch out for, it's not guaranteed to fail, like the water pump is.
But knowing the unit is sensitive to heat does help.

Re: Taurus - 2011 Reliability.

Also, it's hard to detect when the water pump is failing.
On top of the high cost to repair the pump itself, it can also potentially ruin your engine.

Re: Taurus - 2011 Reliability.

Oh and water pump. This is perhaps the most common failure. Typically happens around 80-150k. Depending on previous owner. Quite expensive to fix, but can be done at home, though requires a high degree of skill or experience. It's definitely not like replacing the throttle body, which is comparative...

Re: Taurus - 2011 Reliability.

EAPS (electronic assisted power steering) overheating. This is expensive to repair. And also many electrical issues are caused by a weak battery, being undersized for the application. A larger battery fixes this. Though this will not prevent EAPS failure. Throttle body can go out, easy fix if you do...

Re: V6 Transmission

Yes, I know about doing that. Though it's difficult in researching certain components online for a vehicle you do not own. The only practical source is Wikipedia. Rockauto is a great website, though they have just about everything minus the entire transmission or engine. Anyway, thanks for the info....

V6 Transmission

Hello, first time posting here.
Which transmission comes with the 3.5 V6 NA (non turbo)?

I believe it's the 6F50 but different sources provide conflicting results.
Also, if possible, please list model year reversions or any differences.
Thanks.
