Re: Future water pump failure

Read the warranty fine print very carefully, it's written by lawyers. Most likely it will only cover very select components. In other words the water pump failing and grenading your engine may not be covered, but select components may be covered. You may be better off just proactively replacing the ...

Look in your owners manual to see if it is E85 compatible.

Re: gas smell, 2011 Escape

It's hard to say where the smell is coming from. Perhaps you have a leaking or damaged line or seal. Given the nature of the situation, I'd get it to a qualified mechanic for a look immediately. Towing it would be a good idea too.

Scan for trouble codes first. Also, check fuses and ground wires.

Re: Water Pump Brand OEM or Aftermarket

Given how the water pump failure can destroy your whole engine, don't scrimp here. Buy OEM.

Re: Old photo galleries gone

That error from Photobucket is completely unrelated to the galleries here. The only way we can get those photos back is if the original poster goes to his photobucket account, downloads the pictures from there and then reposts them here.

Re: 2007 Taurus Lean Code Issue

I'm not sure what tuner you used but be aware that some tuners become locked when you apply a tune. In other words the tuner can't be used on anything else until that vehicle is put back to stock. I guess we'll say case closed on this one.

Well I upgraded the forum software today. It is more secure, faster, and uses newer server and script technology. There are changes behind the scenes of course, but the most noticeable thing to you guys will be if you are on mobile you can now use the emojis from your phone keyboard and you're not j...

Re: 2007 Taurus Lean Code Issue

Yeah if the PCM doesn't know about the changes it won't be running optimally. Strange that the lean code is jumping from bank to bank.

Re: 2007 Taurus Lean Code Issue

What is the exact code? P0171 or P0174 I assume? https://www.obd-codes.com/p0174 - same for either bank. The problem with modifying a car is the car operates under different parameters than it was meant for. Oiled air filters have been known to be problematic to the MAF. The more you modify the more...

Old photo galleries gone

So it's finally happening... the old photo gallery script that we used for years was no longer supported or updated by the developers so I "hid" it a year or two ago. Now, server updates mean that the old photo gallery script can no longer function at all. The links to photos that were in the forum ...

Re: 2000 Sable 3.0L DOHC blown upper intake

I'm not sure just off-hand but definitely buy a new one. The Ford part will be of better quality than Dorman and the like. If I was you, I'd look up parts/year compatibility at RockAuto.

Ugh. On my 2000 Taurus I was able to loosen the intake without full removal to access the back. Same engine.

Can you reach the #1 coil since it's not the middle? Swap the coil with a front one.

Is cylinder #1 on the back side of the engine, making it hard to get at?
