Re: 2008 Ford Taurus. Shifting gears hard warning lights going haywire no power when put in drive

It's an unfortunate situation but honestly there's nothing we can do to help you here. The only next step is to hook up the car to a scan tool and see if there are any diagnostic codes, and also watch live readings from sensors. That is the next step, try another dealership or qualified independent ...

p0171 & p174 are lean codes, could be an air intake leak. p0455 is an evaporating code. You have multiple issues at play.

Check for TSBs next also as there might be a known fix http://revbase.com/BBBMotor/

Re: 2003 Sable Crankshaft position sensor - CPS

Some sensors need to be calibrated or adjusted but not that one. Just replace it.

But replacing the sensor might not fix the problem. The problem could lie within the connector, wiring, PCM, etc. What's the exact trouble code you got? Hint: Look it up @ https://www.obd-codes.com/

Re: 02 Taurus - putting in a trans drain plug?

It's been way too many years since I owned my 00 Taurus but I just changed the trans fluid in my 03 F150 last month. What I did was disconnect the trans cooler line up by the radiator and ran it into a drain pan. Much easier and cleaner to do. That would potentially be even easier than installing a ...

Re: 08 SEL TAURUS *not starting* - stranded

Well that's good that it helped in a pinch but you definitely have something gone really bad there. White smoke is normally burning coolant. You definitely need to either use a scan tool to monitor live readings for various sensors or maybe just get it into a trusted mechanic ASAP. I just bought thi...

Re: 08 SEL TAURUS *not starting* - stranded

That sounds horrible. Try holding the gas pedal all the way to the floor while cranking, it's "clear flood" mode. Worth a shot because I had a similar problem last month with my F150 and that fixed it.

Next up is to scan for trouble codes.

Re: Cop car fascination?

I have PURSUIT MODE just step on the go peddle and it goes. My car has 365 HP No, your car doesn't have pursuit mode unless you've swapped the PCM from PI sedan. Pursuit mode is a real thing. In both Police Interceptor models, the standard six-speed transmission features a unique Pursuit Mode speci...

Re: 2014 SHO PTU warranty garbage

That's unfortunate but that's the rules. I'm surprised it has an "aftermarket" PTU because as far as I know Ford is the only one that makes them... maybe you could ask the dealer to show it to you?? PTUs are definitely a problem across the board for AWD Fords. As are the water pumps that l...

Re: how can I disable the theft deterent

Does it have a factory alarm system or aftermarket? If it's aftermarket you should take it to a car audio installer type place and not the dealer.

Re: What kind and how much transmission fluid?

You would never catch me going 150K miles on trans fluid, it's not worth the risk IMHO. Especially when you can't drain and refill the entire capacity (i.e. torque converter).

Re: What kind and how much transmission fluid?

Why don't you just go to the local Ford dealer and buy the right fluid? They'll have it in stock I'm sure.

DIY it or find a cheaper independent mechanic to do it, you have the instructions. New headliners are always prohibitively expensive.

Re: Back of car riding on wheels??

If it's a 2005 model year, then it was built before 12/05. But it's definitely not AWD.
