Re: Get better Mpg

EcoBoost is a little bit of bogus marketing. Think of it as Eco OR Boost, but not both at the same time. EcoBoost is simply a marketing name, it really doesn't mean much in reality. There is no EcoBoost mode or feature, it's just what they call the engine. So either drive it as though you have an eg...

The octane rating has nothing to do with whether it’s top tier or not. https://www.toptiergas.com/why_top_tier/

Re: How I made my P0430 go away...for $15.99.

Just out of curiosity did you clear the code or did the light go away on it’s own? You can use a scan tool to monitor fuel trims to see if it really did fix the issue. Hopefully it stays gone. Do you use cheap gas or top tier gas? I only buy top tier gas now in all my vehicles in the hopes of preven...

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

I've heard if you want less haggling / hassle contact the fleet sales manager directly. Tell them you're a cash buyer, want a straight up price and you're shopping around. You don't even need to set foot in the dealer until the deal is basically done that way. I truly think the future of car buying ...

Re: What type of anti-freeze?

The water pump is a crazy expensive cost to replace. If in doubt just spend a bit more $ now and get the right fluid from the dealer so you don’t have to worry about it. We haven’t been able to determine the best practices to help prevent or delay the water pump failure. Change your coolant at prope...

Re: Cold Air Intake in PI?

Not a Taurus but it applies - https://youtu.be/NJKlb61_kXU - I no longer spend money on oiled air filters, they are bad.

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

This is for F-150, not Taurus. I don't think so, that function is in the SYNC3 APIM module, which My 2013 does not have.

Is that a Dorman manifold? A Ford part is best if you plan on keeping the car a long time.

Re: Anyone ever flush their PTU???

The safest flush is to change the fluid and then change it again shortly thereafter. Personally I wouldn’t risk things by using additives like those you mentioned.

I thought all PI’s had a drain plug??

Re: How much lifetime mileage can we expect?

Hmmm.... depends if the water pump fails. When it does if it's not caught soon enough it destroys the engine from the inside. I wouldn't consider either of them to be highly durable, the turbos can fail on the EcoBoost engines, it's a bit rare too but the problem can re-occur. Read over at the Flex ...

Re: Misfire or O2 sensor? 2011 Crown Vic

Stay away from Dorman if you plan on keeping the car! Most of what they make is junk.

Just find the part # and search eBay, Amazon, RockAuto, etc and compare pricing.
